Venue Insight IN ASSOCIATION WITH


POCO LOCO, CHATHAM


TASTES LIKE HEAVEN, BURNS LIKE HELL.


This month, I visited Poco Loco in Chatham – a little crazy Mexican themed gem in the Medway arts mile in Kent, South East England. On a quick glance this cute and beautifully decorated venue could be confused with the multiple food establishments and hostelries that pepper the local surroundings, however it’s not until you notice the full-sized snarling Mexican bandit in the window you realise there could be a lot more to this hidden nook of discovery than what greets you upon first glance.


Posters for gigs and shows of widely varied entertainment litter the full outside window; from punk and ska gigs, to burlesque evenings, to house and drum and bass DJ’s – it is apparent that this venue supports an extensive and diverse mix of live and on stage entertainment. I am intrigued to find out how a venue can keep going whilst appealing to such a wide range of different entertainment enjoying demographics – historically speaking this holds the big risk of saturating yourself too much and alienating your regulars.

Hi everyone, my name is Jordan Harris. I play guitar and sing in a professional touring band called Skiv, which plays gigs, shows, festivals and soirees in some of the most eclectic and unique pubs, clubs and venues all across the UK (and beyond). The ambition of this monthly column is to provide an unvarnished “Venue Insight” giving my experiences of some of my favourite and most memorable places to play and visit up and down the country.
