The Borderline


Why The Borderline is where it is seems to fit right into the area's history going back to the development of Soho in the late 1580s. The area's character has always been that of frivolity and creativity. Kings Square [now Soho Square] was as regal as its name suggests, with houses for the gentry of the age providing accommodation for dignitaries, captains of industry and nobility.

The existing building was built in 1976, and the venue quickly gained a name for attracting the top musiciands of the day, as well as new up and coming stars.

We like to think of The Borderline as an institution that continues the tradition of providing a space for free thinkers and unique performers from wide and far, whilst reflecting on the fact that we have and always will have the charm of an intimate Soho basement venue.
