Legend of London
Step inside the heart of London’s iconic music scene
The Notting Hill Arts Club’s iconic doors first opened in 1997, driven by a passion for music, art and culture. The mission was to provide a safe space where creative people could immerse themselves in the cutting edge of music and art. Over the next 25 years, those same values have remained crucial to the identity of the venue.
Artists break into the music scene after honing their talents on the clubs’ stage. Lily Allen and Rita Ora gave their first-ever performances here. The Libertines formed here. Mark Ronson was a regular, taking the roof off from behind the decks as Adele, Giggs and even Beyonce and Jay Z danced in the crowd. The ever-growing heritage of the club is nothing short of impressive.
Notting Hill Arts Club continues to present the freshest music, with a host of artists from indie to jazz and everything in between – there are even regular art exhibitions with phenomenal artists transforming the club into their own creative sanctuary.
As well as the array of tantalising events, the club is home to the Notting Hill Academy of Music. Here, students are educated, motivated and inspired by expert lecturers through a unique provision of quality content, knowledge and contextualised learning through unrivalled access to the industry.
‘Notting Hill Arts Club is an ecosystem, the heart of a community. People come here to play, perform, learn and be inspired — we’ve made the club a classroom. Once you come down those stairs, your dreams come alive.’
