Certificate of Excellence2016 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Serving up hearty Texan BBQ and blues music, The Blues Kitchen brings a touch of southern soul to East London. Vintage music posters imported from Nashville, a 1950's airstream caravan, light fixtures made from gramophones and luxury leather style booths, not to mention the knowledge that music icons including Mud Morganfield, The Jim Jones Revue, Norman Jay & Andrew Weatherall have played here, make The Blues Kitchen feel like its been here forever. With all American favourites, including the most epic burgers, lobsters and mac n' cheese on the menu The Blues Kitchen will have your stomach singing a more cheerful song.

Such an interesting place. We can honestly say that the food was lovely, it’s a bit pricey but definitely worth it in my opinion. Moreover the service was flawless.

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
