The Bedford London

The Bedford – Not just a pub

This iconic venue in southwest London is conveniently located near the Balham rail and underground stations. There is something happening each night of the week whether it’s a comedy show, a dance class, a concert or club night. You can also chill with a pint or two by the fireplace or soak in the lively atmosphere as you sit by the bar.

I discovered The Bedford when I began to learn to dance lindy hop. Since then I have been going for different reasons. There’s the Banana Cabaret comedy club on Friday or Saturday, depending on who’s on the bill. The Shakespearean globe structure provides a stage not only to well-known comedians but the up-and-coming too. Then there’s dancing Argentine tango on Thursday and every other Sunday. And last but not in the very least, theĀ (quite possibly) best tasting bowl of chips in London. But at times I’m just after the usual pint and a bit of sports on telly with friends (yes, women like watching sports, too!).
