OUR CREATIVE SPACE: WHAT'S ON
WEDNESDAYS: STEAM DOWN
As featured in the New York Times, the BBC and countless others: what started out as a small weekly jam session, has evolved into London's best regular jazz night, bar none. An exploration of Afrofuturism in music, with a live band hosted by Ahnansé and featuring the brightest young stars in the new generation of British (and beyond) jazz.
PLEASE NOTE: Please arrive early to ensure entry as Steam Down typically reaches capacity. Our doors open at 6pm.
FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS: MUSIC 'TIL LATE
As voted by Timeout readers, Buster Mantis is the best place for a party around here. Resident DJs on rotation until 2am, playing dancehall, r'n'b, garage, funk and hip hop.
TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, SUNDAYS: THE ARTS
On other days, our creative space constantly-evolves as a space for local creatives to temporarily customise and make their own. From pop-ups, to musical performances, to exhibitions, to screenings, to the all-too-occasional dancefloor after a few drinks, there is something happening on a regular basis in there. Have a look at our Instagram @bustermantis for info about what's on this week.
It is fundamentally a collaborative space, and we need the participation of outsiders to make it work, so feel free to get in touch should you have an idea for it.
