Part art gallery, part member’s lounge, Lights of Soho on Brewer Street is now open, launching with a five-week group exhibit entitled ‘City Lights’. Bringing together established artists with rising stars, the gallery aspires to become the “global home of creative neon and light art formats” as well as a place where creative and cultural influencers come to connect and collaborate. “If we can capture a little of the magic the old Colony Rooms created, we will have done a great thing,” said Art Curator Hamish Jenkinson.

It’s a big ambition, but the dream is starting well; ‘City Lights’ is exciting, dynamic and simply good fun, even if you’re a neon-neophyte, and there was a real buzz about the space when we popped along to the preview night to hobnob with the artists, their friends and supporters over tasty cocktails from Hoxton Gin.
