The George Tavern
Boasting a 700 year old history, and written about by the likes of Charles Dickens, The George Tavern is a hub of artistic and cultural life, showcasing works from established musicians, to up-and-coming artists. Mixing a traditional public house setting with modern and forward thinking artists of all kinds, it is a truly diverse and interesting environment. Part of its appeal is this unique blend, where its peeling paint and dilapidated furniture contrast with its emphasis on new and modern acts (there was even an abandoned car in its backyard for some time).
Not only a music establishment, the venue's eclectic taste means it also holds regular art exhibitions and theatre performances, with each night different from the last, it is almost impossible to not find something to like. In 2008, it was also runner-up in Stella's 'Love Your Campaign' competition, seeking to find London's best loved pubs.
Its diversity allows it to cater for a great range of customers, so whether you're going for after-work drinks, or wanting to see a trendy new band live, or even show off your knowledge of modern and contemporary art in their frequent quizzes, this place has it all.
