It is with a heavy heart we say that Her Upstairs has closed it’s doors at 18 Kentish Town Road, don’t worry we will be back somewhere new soon but until then the Legendary Orphans of HU will be doing this incredible show at Sedition in Old Street.
Saturday August 25th


Announcement 8th August 2018

It is with great sadness that as of today Her Upstairs is no longer open for business at 18 Kentish Town Road.

For legal reasons we cannot share the details of this sudden closure.

We regret that we have had to do this so abruptly and without giving our incredible community a chance to say goodbye to the space.

Our queer spaces are so vital, but it’s the people, not the bricks and mortar that make the space. We may be lacking in a physical space but we feel each and everyone of our family with us no matter where we go.

This is a goodbye for the present but not a farewell.

With love from the Her Upstairs family, stay tuned and we’ll see you very soon.


Hi loves!

This is a bar run for queer people by queer people. Queer, for us, is a about a radical togetherness and as such everyone is welcome in our space, as long as you’re not an a**hole! Identity is never a barrier at Her Upstairs, and we welcome everyone and anyone who wants to enjoy our bar, enjoy our shows, and enjoy our and each other’s company.

We have a packed schedule of queer entertainment, bringing you high-quality, engaging, political, and fun performance work. We want to encourage and support new and emerging artists, as well as working with our existing drag and queer royalty. There will dedicated space and time to Kings, Queens, Queer ,  Performers of colour,  new talent, and London Legends; comedy, tragedy and everything in between.

We believe in the value of a local economy and do not want to line the pockets of multinational corporations. Our refurbishment work is being conducted by independent workmen and small businesses, and our amazing family of queer helpers have already had their paintbrushes out, learned to make drinks, collected glasses and lent a hand.

Wherever possible our stock will come from London breweries and will be priced at ranges to suit all purses.
