Green Note
© Ewan Munro

An international line-up of acts at this relaxed Greenwich Village-style hangout for beatniks has included the Coal Porters (the ‘world’s first alt-bluegrass band’) and in summer 2009 the venue staged its third annual Festival of Latin Music. Follow on Twitter for updates. Paintings of folk icons Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan line the walls. Food is vegetarian and organic; daily specials, salads and tapas can be eaten in the café/restaurant area out front, or in the music venue at the back.

Best for music appreciators! Great vibes, great food, great staff, great gigs

Peter C

Tiny but perfectly formed venue. Welcoming to lesser-known artists from UK and rest of the world. Always welcomed with a smile.

Philip M

An intimate venue that really knows its onions when it comes to folk, blues and country music from all over the world.

Deelee D

A wonderfully thriving and vibrant live music venue which hosts a variety of some of Londons quality musicians and bands!

Rachael C

I just adore this venue: intimate, wonderful atmosphere and each gig is amazing and seems so carefully chosen. Great drinks and vegetarian snacks too. I love the fact that only a certain number of people are allowed in, and that the staff encourage you to keep the volume down. I would go every week if I could. It's also reasonably priced too. I just LOVE it!

Green Note has the BEST and most joyous gigs ever in the history of gigs. The staff are friendly and the sound is good; the place is a treasure. Its my favourite venue in London.

Coming up Parkway to Green Note, one enters the intimate space of Green Note, reminding of bars in rural Ireland, with it's wooden floor, small tables, friendly welcome and buzzy atmosphere. Then there is the variety of programming by the management that gives it it's unique position in Camden music venues. Sometimes I wish it was bigger but it's perfectly formed as it is.

Dave P

A tremendous venue and if you think the main room is small, try the very intimate Basement!

Tim H

Quality food and drink. Excellent rota of interesting artistes and a wonderful, welcoming vibe.

Len P

My favourite music venue presenting a wide variety of music genres - americana, roots, folk, blues, jazz, country and bluegrass. Something for every day of the week!! Friendly atmosphere and good selection of wine, beers and vegetarian snacks.

Martin L

I've seen some great acts there and I love the small scale of the place - and the food

Ian M

The Green Note is a special venue. Run by a fantastically enthusiastic team who promote smaller, new, diverse artists. The ambience, food and staff deserve this for what they provide for Londoners!!

Mike L

This is a small but welcoming venue that certainly lets you get up close and personal with the acts. Food is tasty and wholesome with a good selection of drinks.

Sharon M

This venue is intimate, friendly and takes me back to hanging out in Camden at various venues to be up close to our musicians

Gail C

It's got a superb world-class programme of fantastic live artists 7 nights a week, it's friendly, it serves lovely vegetarian food, we love it!

Grace H

Green Note is the most wonderful venue, with lovely staff and amazing owners. Every musical taste is catered for and the atmosphere is both intimate and buzzy. A superb night out whatever you go to see!

Kerena F

Great atmosphere, organic beers and lovely vegetarian food... all this and amazing music! What's not to love?

Alex L

Showcases new and established talent. Treats its artists very fairly and has great cocktails at reasonable prices. Try their Long Island Ice Tea!

Tony M

Intimate and friendly and they have such a diverse range of acts playing beautiful music. And the foods not bad too.


Its no wonder this amazing venue won the "Best Live Music Venue " reader poll via Time Out. With just 30 seats and a total capacity of 65 , its a wonderfully intimate space where the evening is all about the music.

Last night we had the pleasure of seeing there artists live:

Harry Pane - Gravelly, high-energy bluesman with guitar, harmonica and stomp board. What an opener !

Next up came Natalie Shay - a 17 year old award-winning singer-songwriter from London. Something tells me this lady will soon be playing huge venues - but to se her up close and personal was a real treat.

To finish we were treated to the intense soulful melodies of Alex Francis, who played a mean guitar, and spoke of a full band set I would just love to see.  An absolute wow.

The whole evening showed that the live music scene in London is flourishing.

The Green Note is very, very special.

Anna Sofia T

love this place! It's my favourite music venue in London. I'm going there as often as I can. Excellent music plus veg food is an amazing combination! Really intimate atmosphere and unique gig selection. Thanks to be there!

You have to pass a lot of good music venues in Camden to get to the one that I feel is the best. I am not alone in that judgement , as The Green Note was voted best live music venue 2015 by readers of Time Out. I know cos it says so on their events programme.

The place is tiny - probably holds less than 100 , with a small stage but perfect sound. It feels like you have just discovered a secret shrine , where real music fans hang out.

The bar staff are incredibly friendly. I love the tip jar that proclaims. The more you tip the better looking you get. I tipped, my looks did not improve but the bar team flirted in a friendly way.

I went with my son who is studying in London. Naturally he was starving, but the Bombay Potato rolls soon sorted him about - as well as the free pints provided by dad !

Then it was all about the music. Square Roots ( ) produced a wonderful evening, with Virginia Thorn and Dan Evans taking us back to heady days of protest in Greenwich Village and Washington Square.

The whole evening was perfect.

I just don't believe Mondays come any better, and I know music venues in London don't.

Place and performance - 5 stars !
