Bethnal Green's Working Men's Club is ace. We can give you all the 'we were there before everyone caught onto it' spiel, but well we were, and anyway how can anyone refuse to love a place where the bar staff don't really seem to know how much to charge for drinks leaving them getting progressively cheaper as the night goes on.
This Sunday, Londonist favourite and recent iTunes celebrity Rod Thomas celebrates the success of his new single Good Coat by performing at the WMC at a daytime event gloriously named Take A Load Of Fanny.
With free entry, the afternoon promises a selection of short films from the East End Film Festival alongside Rod's performance and describes itself as:
an alternative to bars and cafes on your Sunday-day. We will have Short Films, good music, live performance, massage, board games, piano, fresh juices, tea and coffee, sushi & saki, bloody marys, bar, love and good times. Its free to enter and once through the doors all dreams will come true.
Bloody marvellous! You can find the Working Men's Club on Pollock Row just off Bethnal Green Road. Rod is on at 2.30 but the day itself runs from 12 til 7pm.
