Ditching the usual tourist suspects, Guardian Travel’s reporter takes us on a tour of his favourite clubs, bars, venues and restaurants around London
One of my favourite venues in London is The Yard Theatre. Taking up one corner of the courtyard that is also the home of Crate Brewery and the raw nightclub Bloc, the Yard has managed to carve a niche as a lighthearted venue that programmes interesting contemporary dance and theatre, as well as some of the best underground nights in the city, from migrant solidarity techno night Free Movement of People to queer dance party Knickerbocker. The theatre space is intimate, while the dominating feature of the bar/club space is the bulging underside of the theatre’s seating. The Yard also has a sheltered outdoor space of its own, making it great for summer partying in London.
