World’s first Hip-Hop speakeasy opening in a brand new, Cocktail Live-Lounge, in London’s E1

Roxanne, the world’s first Hip Hop speakeasy will open in London’s Shoreditch in February 2022. From the team behind Dirty Bones, Roxanne will offer a taste of 1980s New York, inspired by the city’s legendary block parties and music.  

In true speakeasy style, the all-new Roxanne is tucked away on a Shoreditch side street, accessible via a secret door next to Dirty Bones’ iconic Club Row site. Guests climb the stairs and enter into a laid-back lounge space with dark and cosy corners, accessible, classic cocktails and a soundtrack celebrating Hip Hop’s roots in soul and funk. There is an intimate stage for DJs and live performances, and an atmosphere reminiscent of New York’s loft style house parties, with a state-of-the-art sound system to boot.  

With a mission to bring great beats, vibes and good times, Roxanne is as much about the music as the mood. The name ‘Roxanne’ was inspired by a unique moment in Hip Hop history, The Roxanne Wars: a musical battle between two famed artists of the same name.  Roxanne, the speakeasy, follows the same spirit of female-power, with a playlist of powerhouse classics like Salt & Peppa and Cookie Crew.  Pioneers, soul-sisters, culture-curators, B-girls and mothers are celebrated on the decks alongside a calendar of live events and new artist-showcases hosted by the genre’s upcoming talent.  Establishing Roxanne as not only the world’s first Hip Hop speakeasy but as a leading supporter of diverse talent. 

The drinks-focused menu will include classic cocktails and new twists like the Call Me Clementine with Tanqueray Gin, Fair Kumquat Liqueur, clementine, and rosemary as well as a selection of clarified cocktails that showcases the bars’ talents and aspirations.  Top-shelf spirits are served alongside a list of local beers and wines.  The house menu is a tight list of smashed burgers, fries and signature dips.   

Roxanne is set to open February 2022.
