If you're after a mixture of underground sounds and a lounge space where you can actually hear what your mates are saying, you can't do much better than 'The Lex'. With an unashamedly American retro feel running through the decor (wooden floor, plump Chesterfield sofas and mismatched chairs, swagged red curtains) and the bar, which boasts a selection of over 40 whiskies and numerous US bottled specialty beers, it's a good place to both hear live music of an alternative variety (upstairs) and hang out (street level) until late. Further diversity is offered by regular club nights, a weekly pub quiz (conducted by Rough Trade), swing dance classes and a rock 'n' roll bingo night.

Just a 5 minute walk from Angel Tube, you'll find this pub/music venue hybrid... and it's awesome. The Lexington pulls in some great bands in the intimate venue upstairs. It's slightly reminiscent of student union bars, but in the best possible way. On Friday and Saturday nights they play fun Northern Soul music downstairs in the bar where it gets more rammed than a tin of sardines.

Really good range of gigs here. The pub quiz on a Monday is a toughie but a fun night out.
