A historic rock ‘n’ roll venue
The history of the Hope and Anchor can be traced as far back as when the building was constructed in 1880. Later, it became the place to be when rival North London pub The Tally Ho made the decision to switch from putting on rock music nights to showcasing Irish music. This was at the time of the pub rock phenomenon, and managers Dave Robinson and Fred Grainger embraced it during its short-lived but hugely popular boom. Robinson went on to co-found pioneering indie record label Stiff Records, responsible for signing a host of new-wave acts such as Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and The Pogues. The pub was taken over by landlord John Eichler in 1976 at the start of the punk rock movement and as such it became one of the city’s most prominent venues in that scene. Everyone from The Cure to The Damned and U2 played the basement in their early days. Today, the pub remains as active as it’s ever been and continues to bring the best in local and international bands to hipsters and beer bellies alike.

Culture on all floors

Head upstairs for the main bar decorated with music posters, old tickets of gigs held here and classic vinyls. Go up one more floor and you’ll find The Hope Theatre, an award-winning off-West End theatre that holds up to 50 seats and stages ground-breaking productions week after week. This place really is a hidden gem, but you’ll still have to act fast when you buy your Hope and Anchor Islington tickets.
