“This hugely popular night knows there are few better ways to enter 2017 than with a soundtrack of classic sixties soul and the most danceworthy janglepop and shimmering indie tunes.” - Time Out

’Absolutely the best night in the whole of the world!” - The Guardian
“Much-loved indie pop institution” - The Quietus
“Legendary indie club” - NME
"How Does It Feel To Be Loved has, since 2002, easily been one of London’s best club nights. Its unpretentious and welcoming nature, often fuelled with everything from Belle & Sebastian and Orange Juice to Tamla Motown and Dusty Springfield, swipes away any negative connotations our capital has for being a cold, brutal and rather heartless place." - Music OMH
"With a tag-line of ‘From the Smiths to the Supremes’ it’s the music policy that shapes How Does It Feel To Be Loved?; indie-pop and soul draw a quietly hip bunch of revelers. Best of all they are just so friendly; no aggro or posturing here – it’s all crooked smiles and handclaps." - For Folk’s Sake
"With a decade of great nights under its belt How Does it Feel to Be Loved? is one of London’s most enduring and influential underground indie get-togethers." Flavorpill
