A grumy but nice Club. Drinks are very much effordable and the Music is good. At some summer Weekends, people are quite young. All in all a good one to go for a comfortable night with a not to high Budget.

We came to see Jason Arthur in this intimate venue. Nice atmosphere and was clean and tidy. Well worth a visit to see a live act. Attentive bar staff soon got the customers served. Would visit again in the future

First time visitor to The Borderline and was very impressed. Definitely a music venue rather than a club. Great acoustics and friendly staff.

Borderline used to be good, grimy but good. No frills, lots of character and always a good fun. We went out to Borderline on a Saturday and sadly found out that it's just another victim of franchise corporate refurbishment. It's just another expensive and sterile...More

The door-men are rude and aggressive at this club. Also, as another reviewer is saying, here you will experience trash sound and bad acoustic. I wonder why this club is allowed to stay open longer than the others in the area at week-ends... Definitely they...More

We were at The Borderline to see Alistair Griffin. It's a small venue but has been renovated nicely so facilities are good.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the

Hi Alison, the venue is mainly a standing one, but when I was there last month there was some seating available, but not in the traditional sense as in front of the stage. There were stools that can be moved around the... More
