WC in Clapham
WC in Clapham (which stands for Wine and Charcuterie and not water closet) is one of many London public toilet turned bar. This one also has outdoor space, enclosed by one of those American style white picket fences. This would've been a fantastic al fresco terrace if it hadn't been for the fact that you're actually sitting on a traffic island, surrounded by busy Clapham traffic and flanked by a bus stop.
To get to the bar itself, you walk down the steps just next to the Clapham Common tube entrance. It still looks and feels as if you're descending into a public toilet, but it smells a lot more inviting. Inside you the likeness to a public convenience is less obvious. There are cosy booths on one side and high tables and stools on the other. There are plenty of old Victoriana fictures and fittings in this low-lit bar, which give WC an intimate feel.
The menu is quite appealing as well. There is a wide variety of wine from different parts of the world and a good few cheese and charcuterie platters. We opted for a mixed platter with cheeses from both the UK and France and some fine hams.
We had a great night out and we will certainly pay another visit. Pun intended.
