The DogstarThe original DJ Bar continues to boast a sparkling music policy, funky crowd and friendly vibe. International fame ensures the place is crowded each and every night, and the staff do their best to make everyone feel welcome. The best nights here showcase South Londons fine Hip Hop crews, but even when the DJ is spinning bland Euro-House the crowd seem to love it. Dogstar led the way in terms of the DJ Bar concept and still packs them in. If you're peckish attatched to the bar is El Panzon, a really rather good tex-mex restaurant, plus it is a great spot to unwind on weekend daytimes.
