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...More

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...More

Pub has nice metal atmosphere, concert was great although a little bit too loud for the small space. The only thing I didn't like was the very stinky toilets so prepare to take some desinfectant with you. In general was great night.

I rarely write reviews but I visited with a group of fiends on Friday and had to write about the experience. We went to see a friend’s band in the upstairs venue. The bar itself is alright, decent drinks selection and we didn’t have a...More

Went to see a great upcoming US band Thunderpussy. The venue seemed promising at first with nice laid back rock pub style downstairs, good music and reasonable variety of beers, etc. But the upstairs venue for bands was dreadful, small narrow room, low ceiling and...More

If this pub was nearer home it would be my regular, plays good music with a live venue upstairs. Great range of beers and cider the only downside it can take a while to get served but this seems the norm in London these days.

Great bar with excellent selection of beers on tap. The upstairs is great for gigs! Nice decor. Doorman could do with a talking to. They confiscated a sealed bottle of water for safety reasons! Get a grip!

Rock club and venue with some attitude. Camden deserves a quality rock bar and I’d say this qualifies, the upstairs venue is smaller than expected but it all adds to the intensity right? This place packs a punch.

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

After 6.30/7pm there's parking off most of the nearby streets. Apart from that there are parking meters but the are expensive. Depends what time you need to be there
