    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.
