The Half Moon Pub in Putney, live music venue in South West London - It started as a haven for folkies back in the early 1960s with acts like Ralph McTell and John Martyn gracing the stage, but a quick glance at the Half Moon's walls of fame reveals a rich heritage. The pub saw early performances from the Rolling Stones, U2's first sell-out gig, Kate Bush's debut performance and residences from Elvis Costello and Steve Marriott. It still puts on live music every night.
Besides its astonishing acoustics and an atmosphere which rivals the Vatican, its elegance makes the venue feel like part of the performance. See one of these upcoming performances: http://www.timeout.com/london/music-nightlife/royal-albert-hall
