London, The Amersham Arms

This Victorian watering hole has adopted a trendily ramshackle yet comfortable character. Visitors are made to feel as if enjoying a night out in their own living room. A stone’s throw from Goldsmiths University, it effortlessly blends old-school pints with uber cool music and comedy nights: Alt-J, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines, Carl Barat, Bloc Party, Dave Rowntree (Blur/Xfm), Primal Scream, Mystery Jets, Maximo Park, The Cribs, The Coral, and Terry Hall (The Specials) have all been down to spin their favourite tunes.

Happy Mondays are a long-established fortnightly comedy event, where the well-known comics honing their material have included Stewart Lee, Cardinal Burns, Russell Howard, Shappi Khorsandi, Andy Parsons, Andi Osho, Arthur Smith, Sarah Millican, Greg Davies, Milton Jones, Dane J Baptiste, Robin Ince, Sean Walsh, Al Murray.

The Amersham Arms also hosts film and poetry evenings, and offers space for exhibitions.
