Tooting Tram & Social is hard to spot.
It’s down a side alley, without any signage… but once you’re inside, you’ll be very, very impressed.
It’s set in a former Victorian-era tram shed (apparently, London used to have a large tram network. Who knew!?), with cavernous 50ft ceilings hanging over a vast central space lit by similarly huge chandeliers, filled out with scattered Chesterfield sofas, and overlooked by a large mezzanine level.
The overall combination of bare brick walls, antique fireplaces, and vast amounts of natural light spilling in from the tall windows is impactful, to say the least. And people come here for two things:
Once you’ve overcome your natural wonderment, your eyes will naturally rest at the bar. It’s here you’ll find a decent selection of craft beers on tap (Dead Pony Club, etc.), plus their own home-brew, George Arthur cider, and a decent wine list.
Where Tooting Tram & Social really excels though, is in making use of all that space. They hold regular, frequent events, including open mics, DJ nights, Rockaoke, retro nights (with an all-vinyl soundtrack, plus retro video games, ping pong, pinball, table football, and more), and of course, live bands.
And they’ll be doing a little tooting of their own.
NOTE: Tooting Tram and Social is open Tues-Sat, 5pm-12am (2am Fri & Sat). You can see what’s on, book, and sign up for guest lists HERE.
