East Dulwich Branch Update

TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS AND REGRET THAT ROCK STEADY RUM LOUNGE DULWICH WILL CLOSE ITS DOORS ON THE 26TH JANUARY 2020 THE PAST 3 YEARS HAVE BEEN CHALLENGING, INCREASING COSTS AND REDUCED FOOTFALL COMBINED HAVE CREATED DIFFICULT TRADING CONDITIONS.


THE DECISION TO CLOSE WILL END 26.5 YEARS OF TRADING ON THIS SITE IN EAST DULWICH.

Pretty sure it was 1991 or 2?


It was just after I moved to East Dulwich.


Very sad to see it go, but I never really understood why it was changed to a rum lounge.


I liked it best in its original incarnation, with several separate quirky little rooms.

The term gentrification emerged in 1960s London when a German-British sociologist and city planner, Ruth Glass, described the displacement of the poor in London as upper-class people moved in to refurbish houses in previously working-class areas


The term Gentrification dates back to the 14th Century

The Old French word genterise, "of gentle birth" (14th century) and "people of gentle birth" (16th century).


A form of Social Cleansing.

I agree, Sue. Complete with exposed lath and plaster! Became a bit too 'clean and shiny' after the first refurb.

    • Toyota RAV4 Dark Blue, reg. RK20YTW stolen from my drive.  Might have been dumped locally for a few days in case it could be tracked.  If anyone sees it, please contact the police on 101 and post a message here. Thank you.
    • Looking for a white kallax unit 2 x 4 if anyone is getting rid of one. Thanks. 
    • As it isn't law yet to microchip a cat (becomes law in June this year) then whisking off a cat with no microchip to get neutered and rehomed may well be taking someone's pet.  There was a proposal on here recently to "rescue" big ginger who looks in a bad way but actually has a living home and is being well cared for.  So before whipping him off to whip them off, make 100% sure he is a stray. 
    • I am curious dulwich dweller, as someone who claims to regularly use a bus you seem to be arguing for their reduction based on the fact that we aren't packing them in like cattle. Maybe that's the issue, covid has made people reluctant to use packed buses and by reducing them so they are fuller, some would say over full, then it both becomes harder to find space and discourages people from using them. 🤔  Whilst an empty bus is seen inefficient financially by some, it may well encourage more people to use it as they'll don't feel like cattle going for slaughter.  Or do you think that we need the Japanese pushers to pack more people into buses. ?
