TT Live Sessions – Music @ TT Liquor, Shoreditch

TT Music

Our music philosophy, in one word, is “SOULFUL.” It’s a journey through disco, soul, hip-hop, funk and everything in between coming in two forms; intimate, stripped-back live sessions, featuring new performers on the first Tuesday of every month, and resident DJs and guest headliners taking care of the soundtrack throughout the building the rest of the time.

All our music programming is curated by head of music Chris P Cuts.

Live Sessions

TT Live sessions are stripped-back soulful performances, featuring established and up-and-coming artists covering a wide variety of genres and musical styles, hosted by Chris P Cuts.

Our Live Sessions take place on the first Tuesday of every month. For each event we serve a guest menu of Hennessy cocktails. We try to keep the area free from reservations so anyone who wants can come down and enjoy the show.

Entry is always free but seats are only available until they aren’t. Don’t worry though, our sound system will have you covered wherever you are in the bar so if you can’t see the performance you’ll still be able to hear it.

SHORTEE BLITZ

On Friday 17th November TT Liquor hosted one of the UK’s biggest Hip Hop DJ’s, Shortee Blitz. The night was free entry and Chris P Cuts started the evening off.
