Music and Clubs

Many bars in and around Clapham have music, DJs and/or late licences so see our bars listing too – Clapham is buzzing with DJ bars! Gigalum, Aquum and Venn Street Records are just a few that spring to mind. There are also plenty of venues in and around the area featuring everything from jazz and blues bands to swing and soul. We like The Hideaway and The Sound Lounge in Tooting which all have regular live music.
