It’s been a busy few weeks for us here at the North – the venue’s had a facelift, we’ve got a new website, new menu, new acts and special Thursday Night Live events, TFI Fridays and Sunday Surgery. But underneath it all, it’s still the same Clapham North spirit that you know and love.
So what’s new exactly? The pub has had some major refurbishment works (as you can tell the minute you walk in the place). We have a new raised dining area, beautiful exposed brickwork, retro film posters, a drawing of Tom Salek, an infographic of a cow, wooden geese, a creepy statue – which we’re still trying to name – and a big new toilet sign so you’ll all be able to find your way there with ease. The paintwork is new and as you go through the archway into the back the entertainment has been improved with a nice stage and more lounge-style seating.
We have a brand-spanking new menu to fit the season and the theme of the pub. More sharers, better burgers and good hearty winter food; winter is coming after all. Speaking of winter food, we have our new “Host a Roast”. Host a Roast is a great way to have that authentic Sunday lunch experience where you get presented with a whole beef joint or a whole roast chicken that you get to carve yourself complete with a proper carving knife, chef’s hat and apron. And you don’t even have to do the washing up!
To go with our new stage we’ve introduced two new nights of entertainment: Thursday Night Live and TFI Friday, you can guess what the F stands for. Thursday Night Live consists of a monthly line up of interactive music. On the first Thursday of the month we have Rocky-oke – Jaelee and the Black Hats act as the Karaoke juke box and you get up on stage to sing some rocking songs. The second Thursday of the month is our House Party where the Full House Band come in and entertain you with some acoustic sounds. For the third Thursday of the month it’s open-mic night, so if you’re feeling adventurous, if you’re a budding musician trying to get spotted or if you’re just a bit drunk with your mates then the spotlight is yours! Then on the last Thursday of the month The Soulshine Band take the stage… and your song requests – you want it, they sing it.
Fridays at the North are now TFI Fridays with live music from 9:00pm and a DJ from midnight until close. Keep your eyes out for our TFIF vouchers that get you a free drink. Finally, you’ll finish the weekend with our Sunday Surgery: roast dinners abound, the best Bloody Mary in Clapham, pub quiz at 8:00pm with our revered quiz master or just plenty of space to chill out and recover from that hangover.
