    friendofdorothy it is so much worse than Thatcherism now

    On Friday I popped into the Chateau for Cramps - a non binary/queer/trans cabaret night. It was fun with a dj playing 80s vinyl for dancing afterwards. Interesting crowd.
    Next one is next month, I think they said on Friday 22nd March but I can't find it listed.

    Yep eaten there 4 times now I think! Great veggie selection, and the Lebanese lager they have is pretty tasty too. Service is great as well.

    This is a model of the proposed build. The big road to the left is Denmark Hill and we are looking north east, for perspective.

    As far as these things go, that looks not terrible - no car choices on the flats, keeping all the existing shops, adding more flats, not high rise like at Elephant. My inherent suspicion of developers is strong though.

    Eta: my definition of 'low rise' is clearly different to theirs, looking at that model again.

    Yeah, the scale of the model seemed somewhat 'off' and I didn't get the best vibe from the developers. The maximum height is 10 floors in the middle there and a hotel is planned at the front by Butterfly Walk. There will be 200 flats with the standard 35% 'affordable'. The 2 'bits' at the end of Butterfly Walk on that model are a 2 screen cinema.

    It look pretty much the same design-wise as most of these new, cheap developments.

    So Fat Phil's on Church Street didn't last long! I never went in, but the menu didn't appeal or seem particularly appetising.

    In its place we're getting Nandine, which already has a place in Camberwell on Vestry Road, but will this site will be more central. Fantastic Kurdish food, which I would definitely recommend. Delicious.

    This is annoying. Changing at Elephant will be a trial from June, and we can no longer claim to have buses direct to every major rail terminus :(

    Greetings from a Lambeth resident. Prepare to start finding piles of branches and stuff dumped on your street corner. Or in your bin. Or recycling bin. Or food waste bin :thumbs:

    Just walked past Cruson and it's completely gutted already. I wonder what's going in there. I really, really, really hope it's not some fast food bollocks.

    I notice the opening line to that, "if Peckham is too hip", which i really dont understand.

    Having recently lived in Peckham for a bit, i can assure you that bar a few expensive cafes and terribly ironic bars towards Peckham Rye, it is far from "hip" (assuming i have the meaning of the word correct).

    The link is hardly the over-hyped estate agent bollocks written no doubt almost daily about vibrant and edgy SW2/9. Just regular estate agent guff you would expect from such a source.

    Why on earth did you bother to post this? We don't spend much time on this thread going 'there goes the neighbourhood'. Save it for the Brixton forum please guv.

    There's really no point in you (or the mysterious 'we' you refer to) having a go at me here.

    Camberwell doesn't need your sympathy for generic estate tosh.

    Does anyone get their hair cut at Alberto's, the old fashioned barber on the Green? It has Sophia Loren on the shutters. The lovely Italian guy who ran it (Alberto) died recently (aged 87!) but the shop will continue apparently. He owned the building since the 1960s and made more from renting the flats above than he ever did cutting hair.

    More 'consultations' on the shopping centre redevelopment.
    Thursday 27th, 2pm-7pm, and Saturday 29th, 10am-2pm. Unit 6, Butterfly Walk.

    They've made a few changes to the plan - I will attach a photo of their model. For perspective, the road on the left is Denmark Hill. The main differences I noticed are that the central 10 story tower has been taken away and that Morrisons will be retained as-is and will stay open through construction. Also, the cinema is now planned to be built on top of Morrisons.

    They're everywhere now. Brixton and Herne Hill also have the same old-BR style artwork.

    Makes the 'hood easily Instagrammable and provides an 'iconic' image for the estate agents. They'll be painting road names on bridges next.

    Yeah I've seen some blather about how it's very representative of Camberwell's colour and character and I bet they say that in every neighbourhood. It's nice but not as good as the things that appear as part of the Arts Festival. My faves were on the post office (demolished) and the pink parking meter.
