I would not go there again.... Concert was rather lame...Girl on the stage who made few sounds, and had everything else recorded... drinks in plastic cups... felt like I am 20 again, but I am not and pass this time long ago...

This cherished hole in the wall – if smoking were still allowed, this is the kind of place that would be full of it – books a grab-bag of stuff. Located just off Denmark Street, the West End's main muso thoroughfare, the 12 Bar Club is a gathering place for London's musically minded types with the odd Pete Doherty wannabe crowding the courtyard outside. The size (capacity of 100, a stage that barely accommodates a trio) dictates a predominance of singer-songwriters and with live music every night, there's a good chance of catching the next big thing in action. Above-average café fare is served at the tiny tables crowded round the stage and the graffiti-covered walls just add to the effect.

I love this bar. I go so often, I expect to see myself in the photo. I wish they would do something about the toilets, but when it comes to great music this place has it nailed. Best I've seen so far is a girl named Emily Lee, who apparently works as an Usherette at Rock of Ages. London has so much hidden talent. Thank God for the 12 Bar and its tiny but awesome music room.
