Great place to see artists up close in a great atmosphere. We dined as well and the food and service was superb, and not overly priced.

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

The tables are arranged on a balcony which semi circles the stage. If you at either end of the stage and sat with your back to it then you may have to twist a bit to see properly. This should not hamper your enjoyment of the... More
