Small, intimate venue, good bar service and welcoming atmosphere. I guess that can vary on which act is on but for the night we were there it was great fun. We stayed at stage level, again depending on the act perhaps dining upstairs would be a consideration but otherwise completely happy with being close to the bar, close to the... More

SoulNation .. First Friday of every month is awesome!! Great DJ residency by Trevor Nelson and Hanif Boogie.. You can't stop dancing.. The tunes just keep coming. The crowd is mixed... all ages etc and there is always a really cool vibe. Bar service is good and reasonable (be aware all drinks are served in plastic).

My wife and I visited the Jazz Cafe last night as guest's. We have been to the venue half a dozen times previously over the last two years, so knew what to expect. We had a table for two (No. 16) which had the BEST view of the band (Showaddywaddy). We arrived at 8:15pm to the venue which was already... More

Music was good and there was a great drinks promotion on but the place is seriously dingy and don't go to the loos in the basement, its a pukefest.

Neighborhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
