Village Underground is a beautiful 5000sqft blank canvas in the heart of Shoreditch. A former Victorian warehouse, it has many inspiring architectural features - from the elegance of the main atrium to the fabulous bare brickwork of the 19th-century vaults. Powered 100% by green energy, we have moved a long way from the coal storage facility that our venue once was.

Village Underground is a multi-functional space which is also available for private events and corporate hire. Our team are able to help envision, produce and host a wide range of events. The money raised from these hires directly funds our artistic programme.

Our main room is perfect for events – from conferences and launches to intimate dinners, parties and receptions, fashion shows, for filming and for exhibitions.

A fantastic 5000sqft blank canvas set in a beautiful former Victorian warehouse with many inspiring architectural features; from the huge void of the main atrium, with its ten metre high, glass panelled ceiling, to the fabulous Victorian brickwork of its 19th century vaults – a highly versatile and flexible space that can easily be adapted to suit virtually any need. It has a standing capacity of 700 and a seated capacity of up to 250.

The venue is famous for the iconic train carriages on the roof, and the exposed brick walls of the interior. We're ideally located in the heart of Shoreditch, just a few minutes walk from both Old Street and Liverpool Street Stations.

  • SUPER BITZA

    March 2024

    Strong mould smell due to high level of humidity (asthmatics take care). The fog machine has not been used on the latest show, has been abused, I had trouble seeing where I was stepping on my way back from the bar.. that's not OK. Prices on drinks are fine, no problem on that, but I have asked for JD and coke, and I've been served something cheap. One lady from the staff asked at some point the DJ (Olympe) to not smoke at the Dj deck, but she had a vape, plus hundreds of people in the crowd were vaping like old steam train. I could say that the place has pros and cons, but the balance is not there.
