Not your typical London live venue, Cafe Oto is for the adventurous, hosting live performances by the likes of anti-folk singer Diane Cluck, Hungarian composer Ákos Rózmann, and all manner of world, free-improvised and experimental music. It boasts a shop that sells CDs by Derek Bailey and books by Cornelius Cardew, and by day its café serves contemporary Persian food from cook Soli Zardosht (signature dish: saffron orange chicken.) The cafe closes at 5.30pm only on days when there's an evening performance, to give time for a soundcheck; on both concert and non-concert days, the bar is open until 12.30am.
