The 100 Club has legendary status in modern British music, having played host to live bands since 1942.
With an open-minded music policy, the club has seen performances from acts as diverse as The Sex Pistols, Muddy Waters, Hugh Masekela, Lee Konitz, Oasis, Lonnie Donnegan, Jimmy McGriff, Travis, The Clash and The White Stripes.
Occasionally, big-name touring bands will play "secret" or low-key unadvertised gigs here, relying on word of mouth to fill the 350-capacity space.

It was at this point I thought "My boyfriend takes me to all the classiest places!"
It was, as it turns out, a fantastic evening (to be honest I had...more
Easy to walk past in amongst the general hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, the distinctive red awning of the 100 Club marks a legendary venue.
I've been here for some jazz performances but on the walls, you'll find tributes to other artists who have performed there like BB King and the Stones.
If I catch lung cancer despite never having smoked, it could possibly be related to the smoke I...more
On its own, the small basement room that is the 100 Club would get 2 stars. It's like a multipurpose room at a school or hotel, just chairs and tables, a low stage, with pillars blocking the view. The toilets are dingy and cramped. It's not a good-looking room in any way.
