So you've never been to... Rye Wax

Everything you need to know about this record shop-cum-club in SE15

In a nutshell…
A superhero of a venue – record shop by day, club by night – but with no capes or masks required.

Where is it?
Just head down to the basement of Peckham’s beloved Bussey Building.

What’s the vibe?
Underground in every sense of the word, its mega nights far exceed its miniature proportions. You won’t rub shoulders with posers or supposers, just a crowd of those in the know. Contrary to its name, there’s a focus on nights that go against the grain, with leftfield and techno sounds from cult selectors and producers.

What makes it a great venue?
We could wax lyrical about Rye Wax for aeons, eras and epochs. It’s a sweatily small space which hosts parties that are simple, great and simply great. There’s even a padded plank hanging from the ceiling which punters use to thump along to the earwax-melting beats.

What’s the booze situation?
As well as draught beer from Camden Hells, they do a two-for-a-fiver deal on Old Blue Last cans on weeknights. Oh, and absinthe shots are available if you really want to make it a big one.

What’s coming up there soon?
