How did I not know about Gaggerston until the end of last year? Having stumbled upon it almost accidentally, I couldn't believe my luck as it turned out to be one of the most memorable nights out. The atmosphere was relaxed, full of good vibes and positive energy. The crowd is fairly young and hip, but not one bit intimidating. As for the line-up, it was impressive indeed. My friend and I agreed that the host, Simon, did a superb job. Go to this if you want to admire and discover raw talent, laugh your fine arses off or just check out the beautiful insides of that charming little pub. So, in summary, Gaggerston epitomises everything I love about going out in London and I urge you all to get yourselves down there the next first Thursday of the month.

Gaggerston is a gem, and has become a permanent fixture in my diary. Delicious food, a relaxed atmosphere and most importantly, an incredibly varied and hilarious variety of acts make for a winner after work on a Thursday

We went along last month and it was busy with some really funny acts. It was free to get in and there's a cocktail bar upstairs right next to the seating bit, although I don't think the barman knew how loud it was when he was shaking the ice!
