As London's clubs battle against the swell of litigation in the city, XOYO has stood like a bison since opening its doors in 2010.
Holding court as the only decent mid-large dance club in Shoreditch, it's held firm as the surrounding area has succumbed to multiple waves of ladification, balancing the needs of its hipster clientele with bullshit-free dancefloor principles.
Eats Everything every week, XOYO Loves — with larger off-shoots at The Coronet — and Bugged Out! all take place in XOYO's basement. Its newly fitted booth welcomed Horse Meat Disco, TEED, The 2 Bears, Maxxi Soundsystem and Andrew Weatherall b2b with Daniel Avery last month alone, while its second room with a separate door policy, the artfully decorated Shoreditch Butchery, also had its fair share of top quality talent.
