The Job Centre Opens Tonight

Antic's latest bar, The Job Centre, opens in Deptford this evening.

The team promise "a spacious bar, lounging and dining area on street level and creative events space and private hire room on the upper floor, allowing it to cater for all it’s community needs [not sure that's all the people of Deptford need,  but still...]."

"The Job Centre’s interior is an eclectic mix of vintage d├ęcor and quirky design features inspired by its function as a place that once served the unemployed. It’s friendly charm and diverse weekly live music and events program makes the Job Centre the perfect destination for a market pit-stop coffee, or an after-work cocktail with friends."

They also promised appalling use of apostrophes by the looks of it!

"its" is in the possesive form, so shouldn't have an apostrophe - though it is a very common mistake, and a pretty forgiveable one in my opinion. Especially as other nouns would have the apostrophe in the possesive form. Another quirk of our wonderful grammar.

Yes but if it had been an old abortion clinic, I doubt they'd have called it The Clinic. Again it's so so funny and cute to make fun of poor people. Hilarious

I walked past this evening - it looked a bit 'temporary'. Maybe that's intentional, but the furniture looked like some of the items I see dumped in a skip. Maybe I'm just getting old!

They must address their apostrophe misuse with some urgency. We dont want a return to the dark day's of the 'Brockleys Rock' debacle, now, do we?

The place is huge and has a lot of potential. But it has a distinctly unfinished appearance, quite undecorated. It is as if the builders had temporarily cleared out their gear and would be back next morning to continue work. Antic seem to be a bit fond of these sort of premature openings and there is still quite a lot to do. The place seemed busy enough with a crowd that seemed indifferent to the building site ambiance.

I shall return when the interior decorators have done their magic.

what is in a name? said...

I think they should have retained the name of the Catford Conservative Club.

Sylvan Post in Forest Hill is one of my favs (great roast dinners), all for former municipal buildings converting to bars. Most of the depressing pubs in Deptford smell of a mixture of piss and regret so this one is needed.

Ah OK, I didn't read that, I thought you were talking about "Deptford's"....

So different from the usual standard of Deptford High St boulevardier who can also be summed up concisely:

One word: Vagrant

The font is the message said...

The memories of typographic liberties visited on Brockley by inconsiderate signage are still raw. Hopefully the Deptfordians are made of sterner stuff.

Ireland must be short of old men, they all seem to be in Deprford smoking butt rollies outside pubs.

erm apostrophe on "day's" - really?

I think N'AT is deliberately misspelling and mispunctuating several words as a joke. S/he normally posts as NAT, not N'AT, which is a big clue. Missing out the apostrophe in 'dont' is another.
