Clapham, London –
Once a Victorian public house, The Artesian Well is now a hedonistic club where energetic young Clapham locals can get down and dirty in a fun and upbeat atmosphere.
Brimming with artistic panache, the bar’s main floor features burgundy walls, plush velvet curtains, and oversized leather couches that combine to create an air of casual opulence, a theme carried on by the Baroque-style paintings of sensual scenes and sculptures of Greek gods and mythological figures that lurk in the corners.
Stained glass windows add a touch of class, while plain wooden tables provide a respite from the chaos on the dance floor.
Museum vibe notwithstanding, The Artesian Well is certainly no place to read a book and have a civilized conversation – by 9:30pm, the club is packed to the rafters and the DJs set to work getting the crowd in the mood to party all night.
For an extra bit of fun, patrons can wander upstairs to the Moody Room, where a small see-through dance floor provides an interesting view for the people on the level below.
The easygoing and sociable crowd is clearly up for a wild night out, making The Artesian Well a great place to mingle and dance without the lines and door policies of a bigger club.
Laid-back and outgoing Clapham and Battersea locals, early 20s to early 30s.
Resident DJs spin house and club classics.
An in-house crêperie serves sweet and savory crêpes.
Cover charge £5. Crêpes £4+. Beer £4, mixed drinks £6.
Casual to trendy casual.
Fridays and Saturdays after 10pm.
