Canavan's Peckham Pool Club

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.

Essentially the Efes of South London.  Recently under threat of closure this pool bar-cum-disco has become a local institution boasting an unpretentious night out.  Go early evening and you’ll likely be sat at the bar nursing a can of Red Stripe to a Flash Dance soundtrack, go a few hours later and you’ll find the venue split into the serious pool goers and the clubbers.  Word of note Canavans is a popular bar and is one of the later open so go early to avoid queues.
