WC has turned an old public convenience in Clapham, littered with the remnants of a sordid past, into hottest new wine bar south of the river.
Underneath Clapham Common station lies a 100 year old water closet that has been transformed into WC
, a stylish new wine and charcuterie bar in busy Clapham. With low lighting, Victorian-style private curtained booths, tables made from stall doors and vintage porn in the loos, it's hard not to embrace the sordid past of the space. (Just ask one of the staff to fill you in on it's rich history).
In this hidden spot customers can sip from a carefully selected list of interesting wines (ranging from £5 to £15 per glass) alongside cheese and charcuterie platters (£12-£13) that have been created to perfectly pair with the drinks. And if it's sunny you can venture out from the secluded hideaway to while away the hours in their outdoor drinking terrace, separated from the masses by a cute picket fence.
With wonderful service - shout out to Mickey - and a reasonably priced menu, it's definitely worth a visit.
