  • Visitor Information

The SpitzSpitalfield's Market has had a place right at the heart of the regeneration of East London. The Spitz is perched right on the edge of this bustling indoor collection of stalls and traders. Like its multifaceted, colourful neighbour, this venue is no one trick pony.

You've got two options if you want to catch some live music. Book a table in the downstairs bistro, or just have a drink, and listen to the free classical, jazz and blues concerts that happen four times a week. These are fairly low-key, background affairs but make a charming accompaniment to your night out. On the hand, if you just want the music to take centre stage, ascend the staircase to the venue proper where you can enjoy concerts daily. You won't find a venue with a more eclectic list of acts on the bill. A carefully selected bill of classical, jazz, Latin, blues, folk, indie, beats and electronica all share the limelight without seeming muddled or out of place.

The candlelit interior is a relaxed, charismatic place to catch a band, and the sound quality is really excellent. We loved the strange mishmash of patrons, composed of music buffs, lost city boys, market customers and strays who've wandered down from Hoxton and Brick Lane. For a breath of fresh air pop out to the terrace overlooking the market, a fantastic place to watch the shopping hordes below comb the colourful stalls.

Although The Spitz has now sadly closed The Spitz Jazz Collective featuring Miles Danso, will be performing at Rich Mix in Shoreditch, London E1, throughout autumn 2007.
