Camden’s exclusive members’ club, House of KOKO, will reopen in April.
One hundred and twenty-two years after it originally opened, KOKO is gearing up to open its doors after a three-year £70 million restoration and redevelopment.
The historic 19th-century theater has been transformed into a 50,000-square-foot live music venue, featuring the beautifully restored Victorian Theater, the immersive new Fly Tower experience, and the new day-to-night Café KOKO, all open to the public.
In addition, the member community will gain access to four new member floors, secret shows in the main theater and a newly established program of cultural events.
The House of KOKO offers its members access to a beautiful rooftop terrace and restaurant, dome cocktail bar, penthouse and recording studio, piano room, library, a hidden speakeasy, stage kitchen, cocktail bar and secret vinyl rooms designed by interior design studio Pirajean Lees in collaboration with KOKO’s founder and creative director, Olly Bengough.
A percentage of the membership fee goes back to the new foundation of KOKO, which will launch later this year as a registered charity. The foundation will begin with a focus on projects within its community of Camden.
