This June, Hoxton Square welcomed the arrival of Gigi’s Hoxton – a brand new all-day restaurant, bar and late night music venue which sits on top of the renowned Hoxton Underbelly venue. Sitting on the former site of Zigfrid Von Underbelly, Gigi’s exudes exuberance, energy and edge. Having spent many years accustomed with the music industry and East London nightlife (founder Giovanna Hussain and her husband Taiyab have already put their names to The Corner Shop and The Grapevine on Shoreditch High Street, along with The Rocksteady, Dalston), Gigi’s serves to be a bustling, energetic platform which welcomes up-and-coming DJ talent.
In addition to the inevitable prospect of live music, Gigi’s will be serving up a sophisticated selection of contemporary cocktails which aim to ease the effects of day-to-night drinking – be prepared for a smooth switch from spritz to straight spirits which can pave the way for an evening of singing and dancing. Guests can marvel at the extensive Italian, French, New World and English wines which can be found in both natural and organic forms. For those looking to treat their taste buds, Gigi’s will be serving up a host of vibrant sharing platters, fresh seasonal salads, regional Italian and British dishes and laid-back brunch menus which can be enjoyed on the aperitivo-style terrace or against Gigi’s eclectic, industrial interiors. Gigi’s main room is every you could ask for in an Instagram picture; with bespoke murals interwoven with strong feminine themes and an abundance of lights, must we say more to persuade you to go?
