The Bussey Building may have tipped the spotlight onto Peckham's musical wares, but those looking for a more intimate, underground and, dare we say it, authentic location for their beats and bleeps can often be found trekking further up Rye Lane to Canavan's. It's a functioning pool hall and local-ish boozer on most nights, but those with a keen eye will spot the occasional (and increasing) night of deep dance delights, showcasing a selection of underground DJs and producers at nights like Rhythm Section, currently Canavan's most regular party. Don't expect contrived basement glamour here – do expect plenty of genuine, scruffy charm, cheaper booze than most and a down-to-earth approach to some superb electronic music.
