The Ivy House is home to a 1920s theatre stage and real ale. It has hosted “an array of musicians, performance artists and general weirdness.“ (Time Out) over the years, including the likes of Jo Brand, Elvis Costello, Ian Dury and Joe Strummer (with pre-Clash band, The 101ers).
A friendly comedy and cabaret circuit favourite, it is also a function and dining room, a film club, the occasional boot sale market and a hub of South East London creatives,
This special place, previously highlighted in The Guardian, is considered those in the know, as one of the capital’s treasures. Understandably, there was much gnashing of teeth when it closed. The Ivy House has been rescued by the people behind the success of The Joiners Arms in Camberwell. John Bundy and friends have given some love and improvements, while retaining the authentic originality of it’s decor. Such is the excitement around the return of The Ivy House, that special events are confirmed on the bookings calendar, up to New Year already.
Get involved, book dates, make friends, be entertained, drink booze.
