By no means your average watering hole; the Effra defies most attempts at description or classification. From the outside it looks like a shabby South London boozer, and inside it has much the same feel. It was for places like these that the phrase "je ne sais quoi" was invented: whatever it is, it's got it in droves. There's live music (usually jazz or reggae) nearly every night, which is rare in any pub, especially a low-key affair off the main thoroughfare like the Effra. The clientele is a bizarre blend of locals, eccentrics, and new-age muso types. The kitchen serves up a thought-provoking selection of Jamaican staples including jerk chicken and curried goat.
