We had a fantastic night watching Loose Ends. The food was simple, but tasty and better than I expected. The staff were friendly and efficient especially Katy who was our server, and the manager who checked on us to make sure everything was ok. The view is great from the restaurant area and well worth booking if you want seating... More

Our son purchased tickets to the Jazz cafe for my husbands birthday - we enjoyed Loose Ends in the 80s so it was to be a nostalgic evening. The venue was easy to get to, overground train and northern line, then a 2 minute walk. All staff were very pleasant, especially Kiri who served us for most of the evening... More

I took my big brother to watch Slum Village perform on 27th Aug as a late birthday gift. The customer service was impeccable. From the response I received when enquiring about the tickets online a month earlier, to the young lady who looked after us on the night, I couldn't have asked for a better customer experience! The staff were... More

The toilets had holes in the walls The food was inedible and when the staff picked it up they asked if I wanted something else, my reply was "do you expect me to believe that anything you produce is actually edible? The music was brilliant everything else seriously DIRE! Concerns passed on to environmental health

The new look Jazz Cafe was quite dissapointing, we have been many times before when in the past when the sound had been excellent. We had a table to the side upstairs. but couldn't hear the singers at all, they need semi circular speakers like they used to have. The food was average, not much choice. The waiting staff were...

Went with some friends for the Afri Beats evening. A good night with some great acts and some great music. Excellent service by the waiting staff who we kept busy resupplying us with drinks. Sadly the evening was tainted when we asked to pay the bill. The waitress came over with the bill and the card payment machine and one... More

This was our first visit back to the Jazz Café for music and a meal after the recent refurbishments, and we were very impressed by what has been done. The whole place is now sleek and modern with great ambience and the seating upstairs feels less crowded. There is now an upstairs loo so you don't have to trek all... More

This the third time that I've been to the Jazz Cafe, the first time was more than 20 years ago. It has certainly got spruced up its all very dark & mysterious now so much so it's difficult to find your way to the toilets down some dark stairs. I had the chicken yakitori & Korean beef with pickles using... More

Staying in Camden

Neighborhood Profile
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.
