This September 2015, Allan Taylor is coming to The Troubadour and has already sold out his two shows (26th and 27th of September)

Allan Taylor Poster 6[4]

Allan often played at the Troubadour in the middle to late 60’s and into the early 70’s, when Redd Sullivan and Martin Winsor were the resident singers. It’s was the London club for the new singer-songwriters to meet and to try out their new songs. Allan was signed to United Artists Records in ’69 and made his first two albums at Sound Techniques Studios in Chelsea (, not far from The Troubadour. After the recording sessions The Troubadour was usually the place to hang out to unwind. It was in the Troubadour that Allan first met Derroll Adams who was in London being filmed with Bob Dylan. Allan then went on to tour with Fairport Convention (who also recorded at Sound Techniques), the first concert being at the Albert Hall.

Allan left UK early in the 70’s and went to live in New York, playing gigs in Greenwich Village (the Gaslight, Gerdes Folk City etc) and then throughout the States. He made his third album in Nashville and Los Angeles. By the middle 70’s Allan had returned to live in UK, and then concentrated on touring mainly throughout Europe. With the passage of time, Allan is now one of the few original travelling troubadours left from the 60’s still touring and performing, mainly throughout Europe. Having recorded 20 CDs, he has more than one hundred and fifty cover versions of his songs, in ten different languages. His latest CD “All is One” has been described by the journalist Nigel Schofield as a masterpiece.

Almost 50 years later Allan is celebrating his 70th birthday by playing two concerts at the Troubadour (26th and 27th September 2015), entitled “One more time around”, both of which are now sold out. On the Saturday night Allan will introduce two friends who will each play a couple of songs; the Slovenian songwriter Vlado Kreslin ( – and Allan performing with Vlado at the Ljubljana concert hall – and the German guitarist Ulli Boegershausen, ( .

Allan hopes to have a new CD ready for the concerts at the Troubadour, which will be a selection of his songs he will record with the Goettingen Symphony Orchestra in Germany.

REVIEWS The Café The Troubadour is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year as it was established in 1954. It is one of the last remaining 50s Coffee Houses in London with a proud history as a centre of liberty, peace, and bohemian artistic energy. One review calls us “the best eatery west of Big Ben” and we are pretty proud of our menu which is served from 9am ’til 11pm 7 days a week. We’ve also got a lovely hidden GARDEN (open from 9am until 9pm) and a pretty tasty cocktail list

The wine bar below the Wine shop is a quieter, cosier corner of The Troubadour, nestled beneath the vast expanse of wine delights above. Customers are welcome to sample wines from Troubadour Wines or have a nibble from next door in little booths, watched over by our carved Victorian bar. The area is also available for exclusive hire for dinner parties or drinks parties for up to 16-25 guests.

The Club

Troubadour Club Downstairs is the Club where goliaths of the music world played in the 60s and 70s (think Bob Dylan and Paul Simon) when they were little supernovas in the making. The same can be said for today, Adele’s performed her first London performance here and we have recently seen Ed Sheeran and Amos Lee in our little cellar club. Last October we were honour to host Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor in a secret gig prior to their concert in the Royal Albert Hall. We have a jam packed programme of music and poetry and also hire it out for parties of up to 120 people.

The Garret If you don’t want to go home after a party or gig at The Troubadour Club, or maybe you want a night out in central London, you can reserve the Garret, which can sleep up to four. We’re excited to announce that The Garret did brilliantly in the prestigious Alastair Sawday Reader Awards. From 1,000 places listed in Sawday’s British B&B and Hotels & Inns guide we were voted runner up in the Favourite Hotel or Inn category.

The Gallery

The Gallery If you’re looking for a light and airy space for a drinks or dinner party or to exhibit art of any sort then check out our Gallery ‘With more soul than a millipede wearing size 17 boots, ceilings and walls strewn with the instrumental heirlooms of a bygone bohemia, this 50s café screams throw-back. Successfully and audaciously blending 50s coffee bar, wine bar, club, music venue and breakfast bar with an easy smoothness, this live music haven is the cornerstone of Old Brompton Road, which has refreshingly resisted the modern humdrum of high street homogeny. Comfort and conviviality ooze as you can sup European classic wine offerings or New World fare, nurse a hot chocolate or bury your face in an omelette big enough to swallow you whole.’ Alex Homer
