MARCH TO THE ARCH
There’s a lot more fun to be had under railway arches than first meets the eye. One particular repurposed arch in Clapham now houses a riotous late night sum and cocktail bar with the fictional Chinese villain Fu Manchu serving as its inspiration. There’s a great selection of well-prepared, piping hot dim sum with steamed har gau (king prawn) and siu mai (prawn and chicken) dumplings a highlight. There are cocktails aplenty too which come infused with tea and Asian spices in keeping with the theme and you can even stay on til the early hours if you can’t bear to prise yourself away so soon.
