I'm a regular at this bar and it has a wonderful atmosphere.
Both customers and staff are very pleasant and the music is out of this world.
It has a brilliant sound system, any dj would love to get his/her hands on.
The pool night and poker nights are addictive.
The manager is a pleasure to meet. She makes everyone very welcome.
Its a big shame they had to scrap the karaoke as this was one of my favorite nights there.

The Friday night face of New Cross is changing.

It was once some post-apocalyptic war zone - resembling something akin to Mad Max 2 except with an abundance of kebab shops. One where �heading out� meant watching Blind Willy McTaggart play Jenga in some crooked watering hole. One where you could purchase a hipflask of antifreeze and a monkey from the same seedy character.

Now, there stands a brave new world. One where the rabid local hordes mingle with the scholarly student types of the neighbouring Goldsmiths art college. One that saw Time Out herald �the new New Cross underground, a melting pot of ideas that takes in music, film, theatre, comedy, visual art, performance art and art for art�s sake�. One that led a certain cultural commentator to proclaim � without any shred of hyperbole � that contemporary New Cross is �like Haight Asbury in 1966�.

NO MORE DISCO is the heroic centerpiece of this innovative New Cross. While the New Cross Inn and the revamped Amersham Arms have enjoyed recent success, this night chose to return to SE14�s original home of artistic revelry and rambunctious raucousness � the GOLDSMITHS TAVERN. Seeking to revive its reputation as a creative hub, both night and venue offer a superior site for a gathering � EVERY FRIDAY.

Overseen by local scene siren X! Dwarf, No More Disco utilises his DJ talents, as well as the pristine, unsullied skills of weekly guests. A doubtlessly eventful evening will be soundtracked by a cutting-edge mix of fat-arsed electro, gritty post-punk, needle-sharp indie and newer wave of new wave � as well as head-warping visual accompaniments.

Because Disco - to paraphrase the great Fred Astaire - is just jitterbug�

dude, you clearly havn't been here recently. you have no clue. they ID everyone that goes in there. The food here is great, like it or not and the new staff are friendly as f****. stop living in the past and accept that things can change.

i dont know what all the bad press is about but i was there yesterday afternoon and had a nice lunch, staff seemed friendly enough

awful atmosphere, freezing cold in the dancefloor area, rude barstaff (not all but some of the time). Doorstaff aggresive and surly especially when enforcing the no hats or hoody rule, needs a complete change of direction. There was some talk of goldsmiths college buying it a few months ago but it seems like that has falling through. Interesting as goldsmiths owns most of the street
