Myself and a friend visited this bar last night, and admittedly we had both had a lot to drink, but I don’t feel that either of us deserved the treatment we were given by the door staff and the bar manager. She went to the bathroom, after handing me her bank card to buy us both a drink at the bar. I was then asked to leave by the Bar manager, who told me that I was clearly intoxicated and should go home. I tried to explain that I was waiting for a friend who was in the bathroom and that I couldn’t leave without her. A member of the door staff then came over with the bar manager and told me that my friend had already left. I didn’t believe that she would leave without me and tried to explain this to them, the fact that I had her bank card, and also her phone was out of charge so she would have no way of contacting me. They would not allow me to go and check if she was still in the bathroom, and they escorted me out of the bar. I was still adamant that she would not leave, so they proceeded to prove to me that she had left by getting another member of door staff to vouch for the fact he had also seen her leave and walk towards the tube station. It transpired that she hadn’t left, and when she then came back to the bar to find me, the bar manager told her that I had got sick of waiting and had left without her. The reason I am writing this, is not because I think I was completely without fault, I had drunk a few too many drinks, but because I feel that the bar team should have had a duty or care to ensure that we both left the bar safely. Due to the bar team’s corroboration to get me to leave, we were both left intoxicated on our own with no way of contacting each other. My friend also had no way of safely getting home without her bank card. Luckily we both got home safely, but I wanted to draw attention to this because i feel the bar team put us both at risk by conspiring to separate us, purely because they wanted us to leave the bar.

Had a really good night out here, great music - good loud metal, staff were really friendly and there is a good atmosphere, toilets were grim but to fair many previous reviews have said this and its more down to the clientelle than any lack of effort by the people working here, looking forward to coming again when next in Camden

I cannot speak for regular patrons, but as a visitor to Camden, this was exactly what I needed. A place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main stretch, The Black Heart is a great bar and a surprising venue for live shows. As a visitor to the area, I was was in need of a good drink and some music. The folks at The Black Heart were friendly and quick to serve. While relaxing and listening to the music cranking over the speakers, the bartender mentioned that they regularly have live music. Say no more, I will absolutely show up for live local Metal talent. Having been to many venues, the small ones tend to be my favorite (so if you prefer a stadium this is not the place for you). I came back later and loved the space. It is small, intimate, and LOUD. This is precisely what music needs to be and the combination of the great bar and this small venue upstairs is something I am always looking for around where I live. Ah well. Guess I will just have to go back to Camden.

On so many levels I like this pub, it has good music, good beer and good people however the owners are clearly abusing their location and being alternative/metal as an excuse for cheap skating on the place itself in what surpasses even an old school sticky floor mentality. I could easily pass off the ripped seats and sticky tables for charm, However the toilets for me are another level. I have absolutely zero issue that they are unisex, however if you’re going to make that choice you need to keep them in check. I don’t expect to be literally wading through urine trying not to touch the seatless toilet, the floor or anything I didn’t walk in with. I definitely don’t expect the chain of toilet rolls (classy right?!) to run out and random strangers be having to play some wierd version of the crystal maze trying to pass it to each other whilst not touching said urine soaked floor. And this was pretty early on, it only deteriorated from there. I love a scuzzy rock pub, but there is just genuinely no reason for basic amenities to be this bad.
