Contact us for bookings and information:


We’re a small venue based in a labyrinth of areas and rooms under the streets of Shoreditch located five minutes from Old Street Station. We’re more industrial than cocktail bar!

MA1 is closed at the moment, but keep returning to us for the opening date. We are looking for promoters for Saturday nights. We are licensed from 2pm to various times.

This venue is ideal for the smaller promotion or DJ up to 150/175 guests.

We have a bar, small dance area with lights, DJ booth, various other lounges and booths and a coat-check. We also have a fully fitted changing area with a full size mirror. Two sets of toilets and a smoking area. We have also teamed up with the famous Shepherdess Cafe for late evening bites & snacks.

Some events may require additional council or security checks. All events require fee payment up-front. Please note we do not have a stage or performance area. All events are “Over 18’s” only
