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.

I 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 ( www.folktracks.org ) 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 !
