R Place

Head over to Battersea Rise where this plush pink cocktail spot is offering some of the finest mixes in South London. R Place is fronting a beaut aesthetic that mixes swish furnishing with fun and playful fixtures to create one of the best drinking experiences in Clapham.

Common Late

An intimate candle-lit venue housed in a vintage apothecary bar, Common Late prides itself on meticulous care, attention to detail and crafty cocktails. From the raspberry gin-infused 1934 cosmopolitan to the thyme signature bramble, their drinks are sure to impress.

Venn St. Records

Happy Hour and 1 other offer

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.

The Four Thieves

It's not every day you get a vintage arcade, a private karaoke booth and a moonshine raceway in one, but with The Four Thieves in South London, it's all under the same roof. Head to this eclectic haunt to have a bash at the likes of Dance Revolution, Superbikes and more, while gobbling down delicious burgers and sipping on spicy margaritas, of which you can bag 2-4-1 one of on Mondays.
