Bermondsey Arts Club

OPENED
We’ve heard of some mighty renovations in our time: pool halls into supper clubs, supper clubs into speakeasies and speakeasies into full blown modern clubs. But the Bermondsey Arts Club is the first time we’ve heard of a public toilet turning into a cocktail bar.
It sounds like a marvellous quip from an episode of Dr Who, but it is in fact a real, fully fledged ‘thing’ set to engulf Tower Bridge Road’s bar scene. When you get inside, you’ll see little of the venue’s past. The interiors, which reflect a ’20s art-deco theme, are the work of designers Artistic Spaces, who have installed muted tones all around the 60-cover space to give it the feel of an early century creative hangout.

Brass panelings, amber glass features and walnut colours will line the walls, but it’s the marble-clad bar and table tops that are the real stand out features: the stone was originally used as toilet cubicle separators. But don’t worry, the club’s Director George Garnier ensured us it’s been thoroughly washed…

Once you’re settled and relaxed in an entirely different way to those who visited this building in Victorian times, you can grab yourself one of the bespoke cocktails from the bar and chat about, well, the venue, we’d imagine. Negronis are a speciality, as are Bermondsey Gardens and Succubus if you fancy, ahem, whetting your palate.
