Opening Summer 2022

Roxanne, the world’s first Hip Hop speakeasy will open in London’s Shoreditch in Summer 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 scene. 

With a mission to bring great beats, vibes and talent together, 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.  

In true speakeasy style, the all-new Roxanne is tucked away on a Shoreditch side street; climb the stairs and you enter into a New York loft-style space, reminiscent of a musician’s apartment with decks, intimate stage, drinks flowing and the laid-back ease of a great house party. Musical-minds meet, friends are made and you never know who’ll show up.
