Probably not quite as good as the People's Republic (yet) but The Underdog is making decent strides into the Clapham nightlife scene. Decent food, great atmosphere on Friday/Saturday nights and a fun crowd. Nearest tube station is Clapham Common and best place to head after here is Lost Society (about a 10 minute walk)
I only really venture here once a year before SW4 but it is a cool plce with nice surroundings and as near to Clpahm Common as you can get (apart from the Windmill) before the festival begins. i had one of my birthdays here as a starting point and it was amazing fun - it might have been all the mates that turned up but its a good place - for Clapham anyway.
I’ve been pretty down on this place without ever having been here, in fact I’ve refused to go in with ahunter a few times as they don’t serve pints.
But I threw caution to the wind and went in last Friday night, it was a good laugh, admitedly some people did act like they’d had their brains extracted and replaced with wasabi peas but most people were having a good time and hey it beats infernos!
One negative, trying to get to the bogs takes forever as it does get packed, but on the plus side once I did get there i had one of those conversations that makes me truly love living in Clapham….?!
Man at urinal: Farts the most horrendous sound you’ve ever heard
Me: I acknowledge with a snigger

For some reason People’s Republic is considered an ‘Aussie bar’ but don’t let that put you off :-).
People’s Republic is a great bar, just across the road from Clapham Common tube, it’s a good place to start your night out in Clapham. Be warned – if you fancy more of a crawl, you may end up staying here all night. A decent selection of drinks, though lacking any draught beer which means you get stuck forking out for premium bottled beers.
I particularly like People’s Republic for a Sunday session, the music is good and food is reasonable.
It’s not big and it’s not clever but it’s become the inevitable end to a few too many nights, recently.
The People’s Republic is key territory for south-westers who fall into one of two categories; the young, just-graduated and very drunk type; the young, Antipodean and very drunk type. Crossovers permitted. If you’ve been there once you can guess next week’s playlist and if you’re a regular you’ll be able to spot the final song and pinpoint the moment that the barmen will leap on to the bar with near-frightening accuracy. If you’re a veteran you’ll have a fave barman and a wide-range of nicknames for the joint.
PR’s not exactly classy but it can be heaps of guilty fun that’s not as filthy (with £10 cheaper entry) as Infernos. If you’re looking for a ten to two-er (when you don’t want to go home alone) then you might be in luck here, too. Just an observation.
None of my friends like this place but i think it's alright. "Why don't they do pints?", "everything about this place is wrong", "if someone orders another double frap skinny non-fat mochachino, i might just kill myself" are words i often here from my drinking compadres.
Ok, ok... it's not amazing. But it's saving grace is that they do the best bacon cheeseburgers south of the river. And that's good enough for me.....
