Its worth venturing all the way to Balham for this bar and club an uber-cool hangout with a buzzing, friendly atmosphere. If music is your thing The Bedford is the place to go to catch some live acts completely free of charge with soulful jazz, classic cover, light blues and some great emerging talent. The best bit is polishing off your pint at 11pm on a Friday or Saturday night and, instead of being turfed out onto the street, heading upstairs to the club where you can bop the night away to the Monkeyfunk DJ till 2am. Every Friday and Saturday also sees comedy at The Bedford with , a simple no-nonsense affair featuring consistently good performances. Popular with the likes of Harry Hill, it has emerged as a favourite on the comedy circuit. There's a fabulous little roundhouse setting stashed away at the back of the pub. The audience sit in a mini auditorium around tables, with much hilarity, food and alcohol served throughout. The door policy is first come, first served. It does get busy so we recommend you head down there early, nab a seat, grab a beer and wait to be entertained. It's a hoot.
