The best free music in London?
Pretty much every Thursday night at the River Bar on Tower Bridge Road you can see Allen Beechey's Bright Stars of Jazz, a fantastic jazz/swing band, playing classic tracks from the first half of the last century. Went along last week, and they were as good as ever. They normally start at about 8.30, and play until closing time with half an hour's break. The River Bar does decent pub grub, so you can easily make an evening of it. Really uplifting.
