The Rose Bowl Youth Club was first opened in 1978 in the Marquess Estate and named after Ron Rose, a popular community worker. However, with inadequate funding, over the years the building became vandalised and then burnt down.
As part of the redevelopment of the estate in 1999, Islington Council created a handsome new Rose Bowl Youth Club on the original site with a ground floor cafe area and a versatile basement space with a sound-proof room doubling as a recording studio. There was also an enclosed outdoor knockabout area. This opened in January 2000 and was a huge success with the children (and their parents), even helping habitual absconders return to school. It also fostered better relations with the children from neighbouring estates, who attended the club too. According to the police, there were fewer crimes committed during the hours when the Rose Bowl was open.
However in the spring of 2010, the Club underwent an extensive refurbishment and was further rejuvenated in 2015 when Isledon took over the running of the club along with Hoxton Hall.
