The Amersham Arms, New Cross

One of my recent joys is that Amersham Arms is a destination again. Friendly boozer with a fair range of tap n bottles, plus some cracking live entertainment most evenings. Its neither too old or too hipster, and in the last year its got new management and been the place to catch happening/low key specials - live music, film, art and comedy (like Russell Howard for a fiver last month!). The staff are friendly (and the bar has chef made meals – bring on the pulled pork!).

A few months ago I experienced an amazing visual exhibition come record launch event in the upstairs Take Courage gallery where Artrocker did DieselFM shows, and more recently saw bands that are now in the national music press, (for less than their next tour will cost!) on the back room stage.

I used to like coming here in the legendary days of The Catapult Club, Gluerooms etc in the back room then the pub went all Camden Lock for a bit after the “scene”.

Anyway, now its a great place to have a drink (Red Stripe on tap, included!) AND go out. I'm back. So are some familiar faces.

Whats not to love? An affordable night out across the road from a tube station and with a bus stop outside. I'm a music fan so really pleased to have a proper venue and stage, for South East London, getting popular again.

The musicians (and I spotted some industry scouts a few times), students and regulars (a mixture of ages and cultures) are dancing together at the end of the night/early morning. Thats what its all about for me.
