Notting Hill Arts Club hosts an eclectic selection of music nights and is close to the venues at Olympia London.
The music policy includes anything from reggae, house and soul to punk and indie. Just check their website for what's on in any given week.
Set over two rooms in a basement bar in the heart of Notting Hill, the close confines make for a great atmosphere. One room is dedicated to the dance and any performers; in the other, the bar takes centre stage and is surrounded by booths. On Friday and Saturday these can be booked in advance.
Cocktails and punchy bottled beers are the drinks of choice, but there's also wine and champagne.
