The Water Rats

Welcome to the iconic and legendary Water Rats.

The venue has a prestigious history including Bob Dylan's first UK gig in 1962, The Pogues first gig in 1982 and Oasis' first London gig in 1994, along with a roll call of other household names throughout the years from Katy Perry to The Courteeners to Ra Ra Riot.

The Water Rats has undergone a top to bottom refurbishment.
There is a brand new high end D&B PA system, large stage and proper stage lighting rig.
Full Backline is provided if required: drum kit (minus breakables), bass amp (Hartke stack), 2 x guitar amps (Orange stack and Fender combo).

The Water Rats is superbly located in what is the increasingly vibey music centre of King's Cross with unmatched transport links for London and beyond.

The venue also now offers great food from its brand new kitchen and a wide selection of drinks.

We are also available as an excellent Meeting Space and Conference Room for business. We have full audio/visual capability for presentations. And can provide catering and refreshments if required.

See you soon! The Water Rats.
