Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 14.16.46

 

Opening on October 5th at the social, Behind The Sun is an exhibition of graphic art and illustration, featuring works from the USA, Canada, UK, Germany and Ireland.

The title is drawn from the Bert Jansh track ‘October song’. “Quite simply the song was the reasoning for the show as well as being a great opportunity to to collaborate with other artists and designers,” explains John Slade of H.Y.T. studio, who has organised the show with frequent collaborators and infamous central London music venue, The Social, on Little Portland Street.

Artists include: Chris Harnan, Daniel David Freeman, Ellie Andrews, Nejc Prah, Noah Butkus, Rob Whoriskey, Tylor Macmillan, Tim Head.

CHRISTMAS AT THE SOCIAL

Screen Shot 2017-09-13 at 14.07.45

2017 Christmas bookings are now OPEN at The Social 

The bar can hold parties for smaller groups – reserving booths on either floor – or big parties with both spaces available to hire up to 250 people for the whole venue. Dates and space are limited but drop us an email here to request availability and info.

THE UPSTAIRS BAR (holds up to 75 people – licensed until 1am)

Upstairs1web

The upstairs bar can hold up to 75 people, offering a sanctuary from madness of Oxford Street, a bolthole for skivers and barflies; somewhere where the days blur into nights and the dusty light is always conducive to losing a few hours to alcohol and good company.

Unchanged in a decade and a half, it’s made up of 5 large leather booths each set around an aged gunmetal grey table. The room itself is entirely clad in wood. Originally sauna-like, the walls have fully matured like a Soho dandy due to years of excessive smoking and drinking. Ever-present in the corner is our beautiful, hard working AMI Continental Jukebox. It’s soundtracked countless first dates, birthdays, after shows and lost weekends… even the odd wake.

Although listings and features on the bar tend to focus on the nightly events in the basement (a space we couldn’t be prouder of), for many people the Upstairs Bar is truly the heart of The Social.

BASEMENT (holds up to 150 – licensed until 1am)

Downstairs1web

The Basement is where the big partying usually happens (although to be honest upstairs is not shy!) with a full club PA, DJ set up and live stage. We can host 150 people downstairs and have limited availability for private hires in December

Designed back in 1999 by a partnership of David Adjaye and Will Russell (now of Pentagram) with the proviso of withstanding nuclear attack or – at the very least – the worst that people could chuck at it, The Social basement has launched over a million hugely successful hangoversScreen Shot 2017-09-13 at 14.01.08
