Pioneering central London nightclub opens its doors to corporate and private events

The Scotch of St James is a nightclub, live music and private event space which first opened its doors in 1965.

The venue

Renowned as the preferred playground for just about every major music personality of the swinging 60’s the club famously played host to a then-unknown Jimi Hendrix’s first impromptu gig on his arrival in England in 1966.

More than twenty years after it last opened its doors, The Scotch was restored in January of 2012 and re-launched in March of 2014 after an eight-month partnership with Le Baron in 2013.


The current Scotch team is dedicated to building on its illustrious heritage as a culturally significant meeting point, aiming to host the city’s most relevant and exciting events and personalities in music, fashion, film and the arts.

The Scotch of St James is available for private hire: launch parties, private views, press days, talks, private gigs, playbacks, showcases, album launches, birthday & Christmas parties.
