1. The live music venue that’s seen the likes of Hendrix and Jimmy Page: The Troubadour
Earl's Court, London
The Troubadour is an Earl’s Court bar with a deep passion for live music. It's London's last standing independent live music venue from the coffee-house era. It has hosted musical acts from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, and even Adele and Ed Sheeran – totally not a brag at all.
Its interior is nothing short of unique, with its arrangement of colourful kettles in the front window, multiple instruments hanging from the ceiling, and its old-world rustic decor.
As if being an intimate live music venue steeped in history wasn’t enough, The Troubadour’s ground level is a restaurant, and downstairs is where you will find the cocktail bar and the stage graced by musical greats. If you’ve never had reason to visit Earl’s Court before, you have one now.
