The Paperworks

A pop-up venue near Elephant and Castle, featuring DJs spinning house and disco, bars serving cocktails, street food and one-off events

After a storming summer session last year and transforming itself into a winter hideaway, south London pop-up happening The Paperworks is back for another summer session, which will sadly be its last run before it closes. As ever, it's teeming with top tunes spun by great DJs, bespoke cocktails served across several bars, street food, film screenings, workshops, art and markets.

It's located a few minutes away from top club Corsica Studios (who helped develop the project) and hosts various pre-parties and warm-up sessions for the many ace nights that take place there – crews from Trouble Vision, Tief, Love Glove, Tender Hooks and Sessions regularly appear at The Paperworks to spin house, disco, techno, funk, soul, R&B and straight-up dancefloor bangers. The final sweetner? It's free entry. Visit while you still can!

Great outdoor venue. Lots of space, good drink and great beats. Perfect for summer drinking with groups.


On the website it states that the paperworks is open from midday on Sunday. I arrived on Sunday aug 31 at 1.30pm and it wasn't opened with no information as to when/if it would be. Waste of a journey to get there
