    The White House is without doubt one of my favourites clubs on the London house music scene. Especially from a DJ's point of view: their equipment is impeccable, the sound immaculate though there isn't much lighting to speak of. House music is known to cause bumping elbows, erratic whistling and the getting down of people everywhere, and each time you visit the White House you're assured of a special time.

    The dance floors here have been graced by many of the musically acclaimed, the talented, and the new as different promoters bring different DJs in the genre of house music each week. If you're new to house music, this is the perfect place to come and see it played to its full potential. A good night at the White House doesn't come cheap though: some of their drinks prices could constitute nightclub robbery, including odious wine at £4 a glass and a decent bottle of beer for £6.

    I have been to the White House a few times, well dragged there by friends. I find the place edgy and pretentious, strange and uncomfortable mix!

    It's not my scene and I am sure lots of people love it, it's most certainly not for me.

    Staff pretty much throw the drinks at you with a Grunt and the Door staff are rude.

    The place has always been busy, so don't take my word for it, try it yourself.

    Thx

    I came here recently for a friends party on a Saturday night. I arrived at 9.30 and even thought my name was on the guest list I still had to pay £6 to get in, apparently it's £10 if you are not on the guest list which is a bit pricey. But I never go out in South London so I don't know what to compare it to.

    The bar itself is quite slick and dark, cocktails are delicious, I had the long island ice tea  minus the tequila which was £6.

    The music here is dance basically, it's grand really but It wouldn't be my bar of choice to be honest.

    The White House has a tiny but lovely roof garden and is quite nice, although a bit dead in the day time. At night, it get busier and it is really nice in here. It can get quite crowded and they play a lot of house music. There is also a good sized dance floor and large booths for groups to sit in. On Fridays and Saturday, there's an £8 entrance fee and the crowd here are a mixed of City bankers and laid back Londoners who tend to be a bit artsy.

Specialties

The White House has been the mainstay of Clapham's late night scene for the last five years. Set over three floors with a roof terrace we have seen some great parties and events during that time. D.J.'s such as Xpress 2, Basement Jaax, Tall Paul, Judge Jules, Norman Jay amongst many others have graced the decks at the venue. We also now have live bands appearing on a more regular basis. Open every Friday and Saturday serving great cocktails, champagne and any other drinks you desire. With a members lounge and private dining room, The White House can accommodate a more intimate, relaxed evening as well as a full on party.
