Q Shoreditch, which at the time of filming was called McQueen, is a cocktail bar on Tabernacle Street in Shoreditch, London. The bar includes a cocktail lounge, a steak restaurant, a pool room and outdoor area. In the Strike series, the nightclub is called Uzi, like in the novel.
Filming took place here for the opening scenes of The Cuckoo’s Calling, where Lula Landry is partying with her friends and colleagues Ciara Porter and Guy Some and boyfriend, Evan Duffield. She is seen in the club by the press, who take photos of her and Ciara through the club window, shortly before she is driven home and is murdered at her Kentigern Gardens flat.
On leaving the club and getting into her car, Lula sees Duffield wearing his wolf head mask.
During the investigation into Lula’s death, Strike goes to Uzi with Ciara Porter and meets Evan Duffield. Strike then goes back to Ciara’s for the night. A different location, The Roost, was used to film Uzi in episode 2.
