One of the many sources of Peckham pride, this incredible post-industrial building is simply one of London's best venues. Saved from demolition in 2007 by a dedicated team from community group Peckham Vision & The Chronic Love Foundation [CLF], the CLF Art Cafe spreads over multiple floors of Peckham's beloved Bussey Building and thrives as a warehouse-style club at night and a top arts venue during the day. The city's best promoters consistently bring in some of the most exciting names on the underground and alternative dance scenes, across pretty much any genre you care to name, but leaning primarily towards house, deep techno, garage and disco. The Bussey also hosts regular nights that offer more accessible sounds, including The South London Soul Train, a weekly celebration of everything from Motown to house, funk and disco, while the multi-floored industrial space is also a dynamic arts centre, programming everything from Royal Court-affiliated theatre projects, art installations, new plays, classics and opera.
