Clapham bars and pubs

Check out the many bars and pubs in the area

Clapham may be more laid back than other parts of London, but that doesn't mean it's sleepy. Loft is a refined bar with inventive cocktails - often including their homemade grenadine. Venn Street Records has a nice selection of beers and cocktails and a cheeky, rock 'n' roll interior. Bread & Roses is named after a poem about a workers' strike, but the punters come for the excellent beers and wines, rather than the impressive history.
