About
An independent music venue showcasing large line-ups in an intimate, laid back, lounge like setting with dance-floor, drinks & a super VOID sound system! The Silver Bullet is an independent music venue located outside Finsbury Park station. We showcase large line-ups in an intimate, laid back, lounge like setting thats packed with a super PHAT sound system, dane-floor and a wicked selection of drinks. Open 7 days a week & until 3.30am from Wed-Sat. Having survived our former 'pop-up' incarnation thanks to a timely lease extension, The Silver Bullet retains its initial successful philosophy of providing a great mix of the best underground music genres, with a consistent high quality of acts, across all live bands & DJs that perform at the venue. Since opening in May 2010, we've seen amazing live performances from the likes of John Newman, TEED, Jeru The Damaja, The Mad Professor, The Cuban Brothers, Lords Of The Underground, James Yuill, Funkdoobiest, Slow Club and James Walsh, together with storming DJ sets from Rudimental, Congo Natty, DJ Derek, Don Letts, Maccabees, The Herbaliser, Mystery Jets, Mat Horne, Eddy Temple-Morris, Loose Cannons and Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz founder).

Silver Bullet history
Jan 2020
My grandfather used to run the Silver Bullet in the late 1960s/ early 1970s until his retirement. He didn't tolerate any nonsense from customers & refused to have either the Beatles or the Rolling Stones playing on the jukebox. He gave the records to us instead!!

Monday's and Tuesday are good nights if you like your music. Definitely worth catching a gig here if you're in the area. Nice jazz sessions.

Something fun everyday of the week!
Jan 2016 • Friends
One of the first things that struck me about this gem of a bar was the juxtaposition of its location (directly opposite Finsbury park station) and the size and feel of it. The venue feels like a throw back to an age of dive bar music venues known for being intimate and full of energy. The bar ticks those boxes, and coupled with the variety of people from all over the world and variety of music on display at any given day of the week, it is a testament to the bar and the staff that the vibe remains the same! Would definitely recommend it! (and usually do...)

Amazing Jazz jam and Rock nights in London!
Jan 2016 • Friends
I ended up in this special venue called Silver Bullet and since then I totally fell in love with the atmosphere and the good live music. Every sunday there's a great and funny rock night where awesome artists play such an excellent music! When you're looking for some relaxing and dreamy time instead, tuesdays are the perfect days in which you can chilling out with a good glass of red wine while the great jazz house band is playing. It's also open all the week till late, so I heartily recommend this place as it's one of my favourite!

Great music, great staff and a killer blues jam
Dec 2015 • Friends
Been going to this little gem of a bar for years, thought I'd finally write a review. The Silver Bullet is my favourite bar in London. It has some great live music, backed up by a killer soundsystem that never fails to impress on the heavier nights. The Monday night blues jam is particularly good. The venue itself is a perfect size, small enough that you can always see the stage but big enough to get lost in the crowd. The bar staff are always smiley and chatty and the drinks are very reasonable, especially considering it's the only place in the area open late all week. Couldn't recommend this place more!

Lovely venue, great gigs and the BEST jazz jam
Dec 2015 • Friends
Such a great little venue! Awesome sound system and fun, relaxed atmosphere!

Excellent selection of live bands, DJ's and jam sessions every week, my personal favorite being the Jazz jam on a Tuesday! Sunday Rock and Monday Blues nights are also a guaranteed good time.

Really recommend checking this place out if you're passing. And also they're open LATE every night and always something going on if you're not quite ready to go home!
