A pleasant ten-minute walk past an array of bars clustered around the bridge, this first-floor boathouse-like venue above Caffe Crema makes great use of its location. It’s occasionally hired for private parties but when it’s open to all, you can gaze over the twinkling lights around the lock and the bobbing barges as you sip your Erdinger.
If it’s too nippy, the interior is long and artily loft-like, and fairly relaxed – at least compared to the glug-’em-quick vibe on the main drag. Bottled beers, everyone’s favourite Belgians, are preferable to standard tap lagers; cocktails are at prices just high enough to keep out spiky-haired young backpackers.
There’s food, but most are happy to sit around and gaze; or, when DJs amp up the atmosphere at weekends, to take to the floor.

Love this bar, it's the best bar in Camden and the surrounding area. Been here several times and it's a superb place to hangout in the day or night for food, drinks and late night partying - there's always something fun going on! The bar staff are very friendly and the outdoor terrace is a great spot to chill with friends on a sunny day!
Great DJs on the weekend but never disappoints in the week either. Best place in Camden for food and drinks if you want to sit outside! Would also recommend Cafe Chula downstairs, their margaritas are the best
Me and my housemates "go to place" on a Friday nightt. What's great about Lockside is that it offers everything you'd want after a long week at work, but in one place. The terass is great for an outdoor after work (if you're into cocktails like myself, most of the ones on the menu are great), we usually end up ordering food after a few hours (burgers are awesome) and since Lockside turns into a proper club in the later evening we often end up staying late. Usually gets quite packed but bouncers are good and makes sure it never gets too much.
I had a big party with friends at Lockside Lounge and everything was perfect. The food was amazing, super friendly staff, great view of the canal and DJ was rocking the place! We had so much fun that I recommend the place for all my friends!
Love this place! I've been there on a saturday night and me and my friends had lots of fun! Great vibe!
Awesome bar! was there last weekend and had one the best night out in LDN in ages! Music is banging and staff are hot and Crazy!!! definitely recommend this bar
