London’s premier music venue Koko to reopen after $100 mln revamp

Published on : Thursday, October 21, 2021


The historic London music venue KOKO will re-open next spring following a $100 million revamp.

It is located in Camden, in northern London, the site, originally a 19th-century theatre where Charlie Chaplin once took to the stage before it was turned into a broadcasting centre, has been under construction and restoration for three years.

During that time workers have had to overcome a fire and water damage.

The refurbished 50,000 square feet (4,645 square metres) venue will offer music artists a 360 degree stage as well as a more intimate setting, and also broadcasting, recording and live streaming facilities.

CEO and founder Olly Bengough said that he is excited to announce that they will be returning KOKO to the musicians, artists and fans next spring with a beautifully restored theatre and live music offering that will hopefully be a truly unique and unparalleled experience for everyone coming through the doors. They are as committed as ever to protect our 120 year cultural legacy and to support the next generation of musicians and London’s dynamic and ever growing music scene.

The 70 million pound ($97 million) investment has seen three buildings – the former theatre, an old pub and ex-piano factory – merged, a four-storey extension and the restoration of the theatre’s dome, which was damaged in a January 2020 blaze.

Koko, which is being re-launched in partnership with content company Sister, will also feature piano and vinyl rooms, a library, dome cocktail bar, penthouse and a hidden speakeasy.
