About AKA

AKA reaches its 10th birthday in the summer this year, which we think is something kinda special. Legend has it that a decade ago, the people behind The End nightclub decided that they should do something with the space upstairs, an old Georgian post office sorting depot, with high ceilings and an industrial warehouse feel, and created a place that was half late night club and half sleek cocktail bar, AKA.

DJ bars are on every corner these days, but back then AKA really kick started the movement in London, and showed how to do it in style by placing as much importance on the music programming as on the extensive spirit, cocktail and champagne list. The friendliness and expertise of the bar team, plus the (then unheard of) ‘no dress code’ policy at the door meant AKA was a real breath of fresh air in London’s late night scene.

Today AKA and big brother The End remain independent and committed to the same nightlife ideals, with many of the original people still behind the scenes (and behind the bar) and many of the same regulars still stopping by, whilst being discovered by new faces all the time. AKA’s innovative approach to programming means the venue is as fresh and relevant and it has ever been – with a constantly changing programme of events bringing some of the brightest talent to central London, whether it’s DJs and live bands or comedians and film directors.

Great venues are plentiful in London, but we believe the difference with AKA is our reputation for quality, our classic bar status, our fantastic event programming and our people: experts who are passionate about what they do, from programming the perfect Saturday night soundtrack to mixing the ultimate Martini.
