    rocking on the bellend road tonight - a couple of parties on the go. Went to a handful of pubs on a night out during the week- the place is full of pubs and bars now- mostly decent- a big change from the nighttime Rye Lane ghostown of last century

    Yeah,there were a lot of people out last night/early this morning, was there a particularly big thing on last night at Bussey? There were three guys having particular difficulty getting home about 5am, looked like it'd been a good one. :D

    That I don't know. Antic have got two pubs in Peckham, with the one in Rye Lane having the hipster-luring moniker of John The Unicorn.

    The Hope is (apparently) their first self-built pub and it's a really nice space although in need of a bit of promotion (which is probably why they've booked me!).

    Sorry to bring the mood down but the inevitable battering ram of gentrification Foxton's is coming to the large double shop opposite the Tesco's on Rye Lane and there is now a branch of Honest Burger's in Blenheim Grove.

    Isn't foxtons going in the former furniture shop at the corner of highshore road? Or did that application get canned in the end?

    Am going on the Foxton's notice on the outside of the old Workplace or whatever they called those fake private work training centres that is opposite the Tescos.

    What was Trio on Bellenden Road is going to become 'The Beautiful Pizza Boy', it seems, looks like it's nearly done as I passed today. The hairdresser's next to Refreshment Rooms is just being shopfitted to become a store/bar for Ali Baba juice, which was in a stall over behind the railway arches next to the kebab place.
