For live Funk and Soul gigs, we clear the space for you to get up close to the action. Visiting International DJ’s play right in front of you . You can often get to meet both in person. When there’s no live music, we play the best in Funk, Soul, Disco and Jazzy vibes creating a space for you to get your groove on. A limited number of private booths are also available, with the best vantage point. Booths are  bookable at a small premium along with your gig tickets.

A smart bar without pretension, where you’ll enjoy the vibe, attentive staff and an unrivalled drinks selection.

We have the widest, wildest range of spirits in town as well as great bottled and draught beers. Extensive Champagne and Wine lists are available too. So come to Hoochie Coochie and try something different. For us though, it’s all about the music and we prefer to play the warm sound of vinyl, whenever possible. While different nights may emphasis a particular genre of music, we always want to mix it up a little to keep our customers interested all night long.
