A fun, unaffected new club night rising like a phoenix of soulful music lovers, brings a wide-ranging soundtrack of Soul, RnB, Funk, Hip Hop, Rare Groove and Classics to one of London’s hottest new haunts.
On bank holiday Saturday 26th August one of London’s most talked about new venues sees the launch of House 4 Soul, with a refreshing new mix of music across two rooms, 4 to the Floor and Alternative Soul.
The musical brainchild of a collective from Mi-Soul Radio, Mi-Soul Connoisseurs and SoulHouse Music are behind this ace new club night and the venue, Omeara London, which is owned by one of Mumford & Sons, Ben Lovett is the perfect habitat.
