The Borderline

The Borderline, tucked away in a yard off tiny Manette Street in the heart of Soho, was one of the cradles of Britpop. Now part of MAMA & Company, it still welcomes all things indie-esque and guitar-shaped. The basement venue is not wheelchair-accessible, but they do all they can to provide access to deaf customers and those who have other disabilities but are ambulatory.

The nearest Tube station is Tottenham Court Road (Central / Northern) and bus stops on Oxford Street are served by routes 7, 10, 73, 390, N7 and N73.

  • Open since: 1991
