What used to be a print work in London’s Shoreditch district quickly became the country’s most-prized nightclub. XOYO opened its doors in 2010, and has since seen some of the scene’s biggest acts and hosted some of London’s hottest parties.
XOYO is a two level, two room nightclub situated in London’s trendy Shoreditch district. The nightclub is mainly known for its electronic music events, namely house and techno, with regular performances from some of pop and R&B’s best and brightest. A well-visited staple amongst London’s many offerings of its nightlife experience, XOYO is the perfect venue for no-nonsense party-goers that champion the experience over the exuberant.
The venue makes its home in a refurnished ex-print works building and oozes quality that can only be achieved when the goal is to make up London’s most revered nightclubs. The interiors are a lush green, dimming and darkening as the night picks up, alongside XOYO’s intricate lighting system.
The club regularly updates and upgrades itself, boasting both light and sound systems of superior quality, able to boost and build up some of bass music’s gnarliest sounds. XOYO also offers cloakroom services to safekeep the belongings you don’t want to bring to the dance floor and a fully-stocked bar with reasonably priced drinks. For those that prefer to save on the alcohol spend, XOYO offers fixed nights with discounted prices up for grabs!
