Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This big bar rocks an urban bordello and burlesque look with its ruby-red ceiling, tassel lampshades and candelabras, with a solid Wild West saloon-style bar top on which to lean, and the separate ‘Satan’s Circus’ mini-club with dancefloor. But the whole thing kind of works. Sort of.

The cocktail list is classic and concise, with mai tais, margaritas and martinis all at £7, while wines are confined to half a dozen reds and whites. The great draughts include wheat beers and lager from Bavaria, a Canadian IPA, a couple of cask ales and a trio of fine brews from Camden Town Brewery; bottles cover a similar geographical spread.

Smaller dishes include ploughman-esque ‘pincho’ dishes such as pickles and pork pies, while larger plates take in butternut and pea risotto, venison pie or mussels and chips. The £5.50 ‘Workers Lunch’ (noon-4pm) includes a half of Camden beer; brunches are big on Saturday; and on Sunday, it’s roast o’clock.
