Bar and events space on Middle Street, just off Surrey Street/Church Street.

The bar operates in the evenings only, while in the daytime the space is intended for use as a cafe. As of July 2016 the owners are currently looking for a new cafe operator to replace the previous one, Buttercream Dreams.

Accessibility: A ramp to get in. Toilets are up a couple of steps.

The premises were previously occupied by Beano's second-hand record shop (see Wikipedia entry and a photo of it in 2009). After Beano's closed, the building spent a short spell as an "undercover market" called Stuff photo; see Retro Chick blog post.

By July 2012 it was a child-friendly cafe and children's indoor playspace called Beanies photo. The playspace moved to a space in the Whitgift Centre around the end of 2014, though the cafe continued to run. By March 2015 there was new signage up for Project B (run by the same people as Beanies).

In February 2016 a vegan cafe called Buttercream Dreams opened in the ground floor space, though the building remained in the hands of Project B as an events company. Buttercream Dreams moved out again in June 2016. As of July 2016 Buttercream Dreams operated as a stall on Surrey Street Market and a cafe in Camden, but both of these outlets closed down in August 2016, with the Buttercream Dreams Facebook page citing the owner's health problems as the reason.
