Spread over two floors in a former tram shed is Tooting Tram and Social on Mitcham Road by Tooting Broadway tube station. High ceilings and a chandelier lit main bar make it a slightly quirkier than normal venue.
I visited on a Friday evening at 9.30pm when Rockaoke was on – put your name down and sing your heart out to the audience with a live band accompanying you. Given I was refused entry into the choir when I was younger, I kindly declined – watching other members of the audience get up and sing was much better!
After 11pm, the more “club” night starts with DJs playing old classics, current commercial mixed with a bit of cheese and some rnb. It can get pretty packed but you can dance up on the stage if you wish. Slightly younger crowd than I would have liked (I am getting on) but still a fun night.
Open until 2am and cover charge is £5 after 10.
