Village UndergroundEasily recognisable for its disused tube carriages elevated well above the ground, Village Underground is an evolving project in Shoreditch building an international platform for creativity and culture. The ex tube carriages have been recycled to form creative studios and galleries for film, photography, music, design and other artistic endeavours. The impressive warehouse space below is available for hire and popular as a clubbing venue for one-off nights - Secretsundaze have held some legendary nights here. The beautiful building dates back to Victorian times and still has some of its original features with exposed brickwork and a 10-metre high ceiling punctuated with skylights.
