Clapham has had a bit of a resurgence in popularity in the last couple of decades. Gentrification projects in the '80s made the area a desirable place to live, and restaurants, bars and pubs started blossoming near Clapham Common. A night out in Clapham tends to be more relaxed than in other parts of London, but the bars and pubs still make sure a good party is easy to find. Clapham restaurants are perfect for everything from lazy brunches to large dinners for rowdy revellers. If that's not enough, there are plenty of things to do nearby, including club nights, concerts and a bit of theatre. Should all that be a bit too much, you can always lounge around on Clapham Common.
