Saturday Live Music Night at Arch635 Bar - Feat 8 different live acts

  • August 31, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Note 1) We thoroughly recommend new members arrive by 8:15pm. This is more of a concert event than the other meetups we organise. Even though there'll be gaps in between bands/acts, it will be easier to introduce new members if you arrive before the night becomes very busy(as already stated the music can be loud as you'd expect from a 'concert-style night).

Note 2) If you are travelling via the underground, there are closures on most parts of the Northern Line. However, the Northern line between Stockwell and Clapham North is working fine. Therefore, an alternative route for most of you will be to use the Victoria Line to Stockwell and then the Northern Line to Clapham North.

Note 3) We'll be in the 'Main Bar' just after you walk through the entrance from 7:30pm - 9:00pm (with helium balloons so you can recognise us). There'll be three organisers looking to greet new members - Terry, Maggie and myself (Martyn). After 9:00pm the organisers drift in between the two rooms where the acts will be playing - Still with our helium balloons, obviously :-)

Note 4) Ensure you say "Friends in London Meetup' at the main entrance - then the entry fee to watch the 8 live music acts and optional after-club will be half price for £3 (instead of the standard £6).

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Join us for a Saturday Night of live music at Arch 635 Bar in Clapham North (four stops from Victoria Underground Station). The night will feature an eclectic mix of 8 different acts (bands and solo-artists).

This venue is conveniently located near Clapham North Tube Station and is widely reviewed as one of London's most quirky and best kept secrets. The bar is constructed from the arches underneath the railway bridge above - you can even hear the occasional rumble from the trains up above. Check out the photos opposite/below and you can see the very original and off-beat design.

The acts will be performing in two large rooms (members usually drift in between the rooms to watch their preferred acts during the event). The music will be a mixture of diverse original material and popular covers songs.

Also note, on house spirits and mixers there's a 2 for 1 deal from 7:30 - 9:00 PM.

Saturday Night at the Arch 635 will provide a mix of musical styles. The night will be compered by the excellent Zaid Joseph. He truly excels at his job and always showcases some of the best new music talent in London.

The venue has offered a special half-price entry deal just for our meetup group - £3 instead of the usual £6 to watch 8 music acts (Ensure you say Friends in London Meetup on the door to receive this discount).

The £3 half-price entry deal just for our group also includes admission into the 'After-Club' where a resident DJ will be playing a mix-match of upbeat bar grooves and club classics until 3:00am. However, please note that we only host the night from 7:30 PM until midnight, but members are more than welcome to stay until 3am.

    Had such a great time that I along with other good friends stayed to the end. Loved the live music especially the rock band who remined me of Wolfmother. They were awesome. The lead singer was a great front man and really knew how to work the crowd. Also thought the young girl who sang Amy Winehouse ws really good. Looking forward to the next event already. Many thanks to Martyn, Terry , Maggie and all others involved in organising a fantastic night. Your members really appreciate all your hard work you put in organising such great events.

    Hope this isn't a silly question, but what sort of music is it? Cheers.

      Hi Richard, it's usually a mixture of diverse original material and popular covers songs. It does state that in the event description (although I understand there's a lot of info in the write-up and it's easy to miss). Zaid who organises the bands etc ensures there's a wide variety so there's something for everyone.

      Sorry I missed that, saw the eclectic mix when I scan read. Thanks for your quick reply :)

    VERY IMPORTANT TFL SERVICE UPDATE: Please note, if you are travelling via the underground, there are closures on most parts of the Northern Line. However, the Northern line between Stockwell and Clapham North is working fine. Therefore, an alternative route for most of you will be to use the Victoria Line to Stockwell and then the Northern Line to Clapham North. I've just confirmed this by phone with Transport for London customer services (and on the TFL Service website).

    I've increased the RSVP limit after speaking to the promoter because there's now more space at the venue. This sometimes happens due to last minute cancellations from existing bookings.
