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, you’re 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 I’ve seen some utterly amazing gigs upstairs. Yeah. Black Heart folks. I love this place.
Great vibe and a great bar. Really upped their gmae recently with more and more taps being added to the rotating lines and more beers in Bottles. Some great gigs too but something for everyone. Definitely the best place to start a night out in Camden.
Stopped by for a pint, ended up with 3. Cool open yet traditional and old. Wooden floors and a horseshoe bar very good bottle selectionadn a great cask and draft selection as well. Did not try the food. Beers were cheaper than that Brash pub up the road and of similar quality. A very good pub that is right near the station.
No signage on the outside that we could see, just a black frontage, looked a bit salubrious, on the inside it is stripped out with wooden furniture and bare floorboards and a bit of a death theme going on, a place for vamires perhaps? However; the trepidation ended there, the welcome from the friendly bloke behind the bar was great, the cask beers were a good selection and well served. Better still, we were then shown the bottled beer list, which although quite pricey, was amazing in its range. This goes straight into our favourite London pubs list, great place.
A rock/metal/alternative music pub and venue in Camden, about 2 mins from the Brewdog bar and 2 mins from tube station. Over the past year the beer selection has gone from strength to strength - with 3 or 4 cask, 10 or so keg, and a good selection of bottles and cans. Breweries featured include lots of interesting Scottish/English micros, plus foreign keg - To Ol, Evil Twin, Ska etc. Always something new on the taps. Bottle/can list regularly changing too - currently has Widmer, Smuttynose, Rogue, Mohawk, Mavericks, Oskar Blues - a list is printed out so you can browse even if it’s hard to see into the fridges. Rock & metal vibe & clientele - great if you like all kinds of alternative music and to find new beers at the same time. Always a real cider available too, and usually a streetfood vendor in residence cooking up something meaty to complement the beer. Can be busy on weekend evenings and if there is a gig on in the upstairs room, but I’ve usually been able to get a seat on most occasions.
