On a back lane close to BrewDog & Camden Town Underground Station. Black on the outside, dark inside. A hard rock bar with 3 local cask ales available. Hard rock music played & 20% discount for CAMRA members. Satisfactory service. Worth stopping off at on the way to BrewDog.

From the outside I didnt even notice there was a pub. Let alone that they have a decent selection of beers. Several good beers on tap and a whole range of great bottles like Stone and some de Molen. Bar is like a hardrock-cafe with loads of 70s and 80s hardrock and glamrock. Actually, I didnt look at ratebeer before I entered, so was pleasantly surprised and had a great time! :-)

Oh yes. This is my kind of piped music. The Black Heart tries too hard to be trendy, itís a bit grungy, but my dear Lord the beer. 7 craft keg (9 if you count Camden Pale and Ink) and one cask compliments a fairly massive bottle selection. On my visit there were draft beers by Siren, Wild Weather and Harbour among others. Worth a visit for sure.

Dark, metal pub. Interesting bottle selection, along with about 15 taps (including 4 or 5 cask). Most british craft beers. Also a gig venue, where some former Motley Crue member was solo playing. Interesting and enjoyable if you are into hard-rock, metal.

A dark pub tucked away in the alley near the Brewdog entrance. Started out fairly well this place, always a good atmosphere here. Unfortunately the last 3 visits have seen this place decline. Service is generally slow, no fault of the staff - they are run of their feet. Just not enough of them, The cask beers have been in poor condition and I have seen a couple of punters return beers and have been tempted to do myself. They need to forget their brand image for awhile here, hire more staff and sort out the cask conditioning. Canít see me bothering to go back until they do.

A dark and dingy/grungy, yet typically Camdenesque place. Blaring heavy rock in over the speakers. I donít mind the music but I find the scene a little weird. Good bottle selection from local goodies to stuff like Stone, Westbrook and Oskar Blues. None of their Brewdog neighbour at all and fair enough. Service was slow but efficient. Wouldnít say the bloke was very friendly, possibly having a bad day.... A good selection but you can find selections like this throughout London with better service and tap range quite easily

A dark, atmospheric, gothic-type pub with metal blaring. My kind of place. Or used to. Canít say I enjoyed it much though perhaps the lack of local stuff and the poor choice of beer is what made it not so pleasant. Service was patient though a bit unfriendly since I didnít like what they offered or what I sampled. A bit on the pricey side.

Good pub in Camden with many local beers available. 4 casks and 6 or so taps. Friend service and free wifi.

Popped in here to try Camden town beers when visiting brewdog last December. Pleased to find a good selection of cask too, tasty pizzas and good music. Got chatting with an Italian music journalist and great staff too trying their best to match peoples taste preferences to beers.

Ok. First things first. You are not going to find much in the way of new scoops here. However, what you can be sure of is a bloody good selection of Scandinavian and American with a good lick of English and basically more than enough to keep you happy. This is one for those in the know. Honestly, youíre guaranteed a good night out here. I personally have bought some of the worlds beer elite here for Friday and Saturday night madness and the place has never let me down. Rock n Roll as fook all round. Josh really knows his stuff and everything is put together really well.
You want a quiet night, go somewhere else. You want quality music, great atmosphere and a small but superbly put together beer list. Come here. No joke, the Black Heart rocks.
Oh did I mention that Iíve seen some utterly amazing gigs upstairs. Yeah. Black Heart folks. I love this place.
