The launch of the Speakeasy Blues Bar will continue the tradition of live music entertainment at the Boisdale venue and serve an increasingly growing blues audience of East London.
Boisdale managing director Ranald Macdonald said, “The blues has been at the heart of all popular music since the early 20th century and over the last twenty years Boisdale has always been proud to stage the blues across all our venues. Now with the launch of The Speakeasy Blues Bar for the first time we will be focussed on purely curating the best live blues in London every night at Boisdale of Bishopsgate.”
