One of my favourite music venues in London has to be the 12 bar club on Denmark Street. The only bar on a road of instrument shops it’s a popular haunt for rockers and punks and general music enthusiasts. The main room has a capacity of no more than 60 people and that’d be a tight squeeze! With nightly punk, folk and rock bands it’s always interesting to see who’ll be on stage. I’ve witnessed acoustic sets, hard-core punk bands, a front man wearing nothing but a pvc thong and floor length fur coat and a couple on their wedding night!
The walls of this independently owned music venue are covered in memorabilia and graffiti, there’s a couple of pool tables in the back room and the drinks are cheap. Not a place to take your mum out to on mother’s day that’s for sure but this small bar packs a real punch if you’re looking for a good night out.
