Venue operator Mothership Group is relaunching Shoreditch’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen as Colours, and will ally with fellow East London multi-art spaces Village Underground and EartH on future programming.

The venues company – which also runs Shoreditch’s Queen Of Hoxton and The Book Club, as well as Patterns in Brighton – says that Colours will “inject a much-needed vibrancy into Shoreditch’s music landscape”.

The new look venue will host gigs, club nights and other cultural events, while still operating as a restaurant during the day. Though that won’t be the only daytime activity, with Mothership saying that it hopes Colours will become “an incubator for invited local artists and creative networks, providing a free space for collaborators to host meetings, rehearsals and record podcasts”.

Confirming all this, Mothership’s Chloe Uppington says: “Painting a revolution of raw performance and inclusive and accessible culture, Colours will be a bold and beautiful temple of creativity and celebration of live music. A testament to Hoxton’s past, which overflows with seminal moments across club, culture and the art scene, Colours is part of a dedicated push to keep young artists and musicians in East London”.

Mothership acquired the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen off previous owner MAMA in 2015, following the latter’s acquisition by Live Nation.
