Ginglik is west London's premier suburban beat bunker, which is rapidly establishing a reputation as one of the finest alternative venues in the capital. Effortlessly fusing some of the city's premier electronic and underground DJs and musicians with exhibitions, video installations, photography, digital art, sculpture,comedy nights and even martial and healing arts, with a friendly, pretension-free atmosphere; the club has become a focal point for artists, musicians and general connoisseurs of cool. The venue itself is a converted underground Victorian public toilet, underneath Shepherd's Bush Green. With only a small stairway leading you to the entrance, Ginglik is easily missed. This fact together with its subtle word of mouth only promotion has given the venue and its events the added bonus of a perfect and select and undeniably friendly atmosphere. The interior has been given a smart and cosy makeover, with a capacity of 250, three rooms and plenty of comfortable sofas it provides a relaxed and intimate space to chat, drink and enjoy the regular entertainment provided. Events at Ginglik are of the highest quality, and have seen and are due to see some of the UK's most respected DJ's, musicians and comedians covering a broad range of styles.
The Ginglik venue was born in the spring of 2002 in a converted Edwardian toilet beneath Shepherds Bush Green. Over it’s eleven years it became one of the best loved venues of any size in the capital. With a diverse lineup of events and its supernaturally friendly crew it created a rare sense of community and one of the most welcoming atmospheres in London. The commitment to giving a platform to upcoming artists as well as established ones such as Laura Marling, Ellie Goulding, Robin Williams, Jimmy Carr, Michael Mcintyre made it one of the most exciting and treasured venues in the UK.
