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.

The Black Heart is in the centre of Camden and took a little time to find as it is nestled up a side street. The place was packed and the lighting/decor are extremely dark. The bar was busy and it's hard to see what's on...More

The bar itself is simple, but well set out, with a good drinks selection and layout. The people seem like a nice crowd and the staff know what they're doing. The gig space itself is a good size, but the stage is quite low, so...More

The best pub in London for reasonably priced pints, great music played loud, live bands upstairs regularly, including many great touring bands. Highly recommend. Long live the Black Heart. Xx

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
