has proven to be a great venue in the heart of Shoreditch for gig goers and now they are planning to expand by introducing a “cultural hub” on the upper level called XO. This new space will not only be a creative outlet for comedy, film, art and music five nights a week it will also be a place to ‘hangout’ in the café/gallery by day. With i-D Magazine, Moshi Moshi and Transgressive already on board to curate XO’s nightlife it seems XOYO will once again be the talking point in East London. The café will be open daily from 7.30am and you can expect some exciting and inspiring exhibitions served alongside great coffee and light bites.
