Venn St. Records

337 user reviews 5


One of the leading options for a slightly alternative night out in Clapham, Venn Street Records is a vinyl-clad, rock 'n' roll drinkers den. Noticeable for the large neon sign outside, the venue hosts regular live acts and DJs while the team at the bar mix up cocktails like the AC/Daquiri. #CheapDate night offers 2 drinks and 2 pizzas for £15 and happy hour runs every day at this fun-time bar that refuses to take itself too seriously.

Expect to taste both flavours and spices from the far corners of the world at Mommi where the cultures of Japan and South America collide for cocktails and cuisine that is ultimately ingenious. With a bar well versed in exotic tipples and lush liquors, their pisco packs a punch if you're looking for some original mixology. 

O’Neill’s Clapham

For an Irish bar in Clapham? O'Neill's comes out on top thanks to its friendly hospitality, affordable prices and amazing food to back it all up. Think pints of Guinness and all your other favourite pours washing down burgers, bottomless brunches and more.
