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.

This Workers Beer Company-run pub is proud to sport its socialist credentials, it takes its name from a James Oppenheim poem associated with a textile strike.

Recommended

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.

WC - Wine & Charcuterie

3 out of 5 stars

The picket fence goes up by 6pm, partioning off a little patch of ground next to Clapham Common’s tube station. The folding tables then fill up in minutes with glass-clinking sybarites.

Venn Street Records

3 out of 5 stars

Close to Clapham Common, next to the Picturehouse and set slightly back from the chavalcade of chain bars on the High Street, is a new vinyl-clad venue on Venn Street (hence the name).

No 32 The Old Town

3 out of 5 stars

Every year Clapham’s bars face onslaughts as sunburned and inebriated groups descend on them like Visigoths on Rome. This was a new experience for No 32, which opened days before the hottest weekend of the year so far.

The Rookery

3 out of 5 stars

The busy A24 runs along the western edge of Clapham Common. A few alfresco bars and a growing number of sheesha joints cluster at the southern end, but the Rookery sits in the middle.
