Amazing Grace London

How a former church strikes the right note as a popular event space in central London

A former 15th century church turned live music venue space is giving Londoners more bang for their buck thanks to its approach to entertainment. 

Amazing Grace in Central London is a live-music venue space that hosts different live music acts every night, offers a fine-dining experience and finishes each night off with a live DJ set. 

The year Amazing Grace opened its doors, 80 event spaces across London closed, now with a recession in full swing, creativity is key to staying relevant. 

Amazing Grace co-founder Ricardo Evans said: “It’s not just a live music space, it’s an entertainment venue. People don’t just want to go out for dinner, they want to have an experience.”

Country-wide economic hardship means customers want to ensure that they’re getting the best value for money, especially when they’re looking to have a good time.

If there were 100,000 people out in Central London pre-Covid, Evans explains that it’s closer to 70,000 now due to people opting to work from home on a Friday.

“Saturday’s are still really, really busy, because Saturday’s are days that people come into town, there’s a lot of events, people come in from all over the world.

“We’re very lucky to open up in the area that we’re in. London Bridge has become a bigger tourist destination. Before the Shard, Vinegar Yard, and the flatiron square, there really wasn’t anything here.”

From single acoustic acts to live party bands and jazz ensembles, Amazing Grace caters to a wide range of music tastes, making it an accessible place for any Londoner. 

Evans added: “I’ve been working in London in live music venues and running events companies for the last 10 years, it’s very fulfilling to own a space in London that has live music, it’s always been something I’ve wanted to do.

“We also have burlesque once a month.”
