Party Earth The Artesian Well Review

The Scene

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.

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.

Tip from Lucas:

This place knows how to get crazy! It’s best to pay the extra £2 at the door, which grants access to the Moody Room as well. Space is limited and the bouncers may make people wait, but it’s nice to have the option of both clubs and their differing moods and music.
