Jamm, the latest addition to Brixton's burgeoning club scene, officially opened for business on Friday February 18 with a party staged by internationally renowned South London duo Basement Jaxx.
From the days of the old White Horse staging punk gigs by The Clash to its more recent incarnation as a successful salsa club, the venue has always enjoyed a special place in the heart of Brixton.

As well as top music names, the venue's proved its versatility by providing a platform for all manner of other cultural events too, from Egyptian belly dancing to Arts Council-funded exhibitions, and consciousness-raising events for a plethora of pressure groups from charity fundraisers to political meetings.
Jamm can easily cater for over 500 people, approximately 250 in each of it’s rooms.
As well as a car park the venue also boasts a huge decked outside area at the front where another 200 people can chill out.
The club is equipped with a state of the art Martin Waverfront sound system and lighting rig to cope with the most demanding of live acts as well as everything bang up to date with all that the DJ culture demands.
