Camden Assembly

Formerly The Barfly, this corner venue has been a Camden institution for years, welcoming Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand and Bombay Bicycle Club among the many bands who’ve played early London gigs here. It was a popular hangout during the Britpop and grunge years, doubtless due to its loud, post-band DJ sets and late licence. It’s recently been taken over by The Columbo Group and relaunched as the Camden Assembly.

Great, intimate venue for concerts. The decor of the stage with red bubble lights is great too. They put on interesting acts, such as Nordoff Robins series that is happening in December for charity. The only thing is that it is quite stuffy in the venue so beware of this.

I saw Lucy Rose live in the Barfly earlier this year and the venue was absolutely on point for her music. An intimate space, which couldn't have fitted Lucy Rose's vibe any better! I've never heard of anyone else talk of the Barfly, even though I imagine any Londoner has walked right past its door hundreds of times!

Some say Barfly should be my nickname. That's just unfair. However I would not mind being named after this GREAT Camden hideout. Unremarkable pub downstairs, awesome music room upstairs. In the last year I have seen two amazing acts here and a few that don't quite live up to that billing. Blackberry Smoke - over from the USA were outstanding. A real raw Lynard Skynard sounding dirty down south outfit that should break through to the big time any day now. The second (pictured) was Jeannine Barry who I had seen at Borderline and C2C. She nailed it at Barfly. Check her out on http://www.jeanninebarry.com . Looking forward to my next visit to Barfly.
