The finishing touches and final details are taking shape at WC, thanks to the two determined locals who have worked for nearly two years to save this derelict, 100 year old listed former public convenience. Downstairs, away from the hustle and bustle of central Clapham, this underground space has been carefully converted into an intimate, secluded hideaway where guests can enjoy a relaxed spot to select quality wines, delicious charcuterie boards, whilst listening to talented LIVE music acts. Andy & Jayke wanted to give this special address a lease of life and fresh purpose; in doing so they have also added something completely new to Clapham.


Andy & Jayke have restored all the original features which could be salvaged, so guests can enjoy the history within these walls. And that is exactly what happened when panels from the wall were removed: love letters were found tucked between the tiles by some of the venue’s “previous guests”. A selection of the letters are now on display in the actual bathroom for guests to enjoy (some very amusing bathroom reading material!).



The newly renovated venue seats just 40 and features a small bar area with dark blue leathers, reclaimed mahogany panelled benches, and three booths with tables perfect for small groups, located in the same position as the original stalls. There are many individual design features which work to create an intimate, special and relaxed feeling for all.
