Tuesday 13 December 2022...6pm to 10pm... HOXTON HOTEL opening launch party at 65-69 Shepherds Bush Green, London W12. This is the fourth Hoxton Hotel in London, and their twelfth worldwide. It will have 237 rooms. It is just 200 yards from The Shepherds Bush Empire. Is is situated on the site where the main Post Office used to be. At that same Post Office i opened my first Post Office savings account book there in the early 1970s. Also in the late 1970s when i used to sell bootleg vinyl , i posted over 700 packages from there via recorded delivery and not one got lost or damaged. ------------ The venue looks very impressive outside and inside...nice and cosy too. Local lad PAUL COOK (drummer with Sex Pistols/The Professionals/ Generation Sex etc) is here with his wife Jeni and daughter Hollie. The hotel has various sized spaces and will be having djs from Rough Trade West and Next Door Records (Bush Hall) in the future. Complimentary wines, beers and food for all the guests.
