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.

I had my reservations. Within 5 minutes of the comedy night I was there to see, a guy named Mick in the front row called the compere a dick, the compere called Mick an expletive I will not repeat and then a guy next to Mick threw up on his shoes.

It was, as it turns out, a fantastic evening (to be honest I had... more
Although the history exceeds its current legacy, I do enjoy a night at the 100.
Due to the shape of the room, you can generally see very well from most vantage points. The sound is generally good too.
Since the air conditioning went in, it is marginally cooler too, however the summer night that I made my recent visit on still made my friends and I "sticky". Ewww. However, by the looks of it,... more
I always remember THAT time when I was walking along Oxford Street, after exiting Tottenham Court Road station, up to the 100 club and wondering how far up it was. Ooh let me just google the address to find out what number it is...but no lets not talk about that time! I would like to get married here thankyouplease. I love this place. History and rock and roll (and blues and jazz) literally... more
An institution. It oozes with history, it has its quirks and attracts a really random crowd. But it's a great place for a gig, especially for seeing up and coming bands.

The drinks are priced aggressively, so you wouldn't want to pop in here for a few drinks.
