Fantastic range of music at a proper old school, music venue with the character to bring the best out of the artist and audience. This is where Madness got started and on the right night you may just see an emerging star act. The pub...More

Great proper pub that Madness played in when they first started. A tiny 150 capacity but they have had great punk related gigs including Spizz and Sylvain Sylvain. Drinks were £5 a pint.

I lived in Camden for about 9 months, and would regularly go into the Dublin Castle on a Friday/Saturday. It's a great bar, with reasonably priced drinks and a good atmosphere. The best feature is the live music area at the back. There are always...More

I’d not been here for years but little seemed to have changed. It was busy with small and large groups, eating, drinking, smoking (yes, how refreshing), and just hanging out. Finding table space can be difficult but a table number is needed when ordering food....More

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
