Clubs in Camden
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.
