Bars and pubs in Clapham
Where to head when you’ve got a thirst on in south-west London
Clapham may be more laid back than other parts of London, but that doesn't mean it's sleepy. Loft is a refined bar with inventive cocktails - often including their homemade grenadine. Venn Street Records has a nice selection of beers and cocktails and a cheeky, rock 'n' roll interior. Bread & Roses is named after a poem about a workers' strike, but the punters come for the excellent beers and wines, rather than the impressive history.

It’s a joy to find a proper neighbourhood pub that serves a brilliant range of beers from small producers. Hand-crafted cask ales, guest kegs, and of course an array of exotic bottles.
