Roots Manuva's Fave Venue



Roots Manuva's Fave Venue

The Macbeth, Hoxton - a legal pub with a semi-illegal flavour

Location: 70 Hoxton Street, N1 6LP

Description: Renowned as one of the UK's finest rappers, 'Roots Manuva' grew up in south London and now lives in Tottenham. His latest album, 4everevolution, was released in October 2011.

And this place is his favourite venue!

'If you happen to be out and about in Hoxton, you're guaranteed to see something interesting at the Macbeth. It's on such a nutty road. Hoxton Street connects with Curtain Road, the trendy, creative part with the fashion school.

But near the pub, it's like a whole different planet - people getting shot in the fish and chip shop, a crazy council estate and a sixth form college. It's got a mad energy.

The Macbeth attracts such a wide range of performers - from CocknBullKid to Muse - that it always seems to have a different vibe. I had my 37th birthday party there three years ago. I suppose I wanted to celebrate with people who'd been into my records over the years. We put together a band that was supposed to comprise every band I've had, a really nutty bunch of musicians doing weird renditions of tunes without rehearsing. It was like a crazy circus, that night.
