The Blues Kitchen Camden

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This lively, contemporary bar-diner on the main Camden drag celebrates American musical heritage in song (live shows, DJs, free harmonica lessons), spirits and sustenance.

The food is all-American in spirit and substance, with barbecue and burgers featuring prominently. Though you can, if you insist, order a 'superfood salad.' 

There are around 50 bourbons in a variety of categories, some used as bases for cocktails. Rarer types (Blanton’s Gold, Sazerac 18-Year-Old Rye, Woodford Reserve 1838 Sweet Mash) go for a tenner or more, but otherwise you’ll be paying £3.50 to £6. ‘America’s native spirit’ is how Kentucky bourbon is described, with Ancient Age and Evan Williams typical examples; Tennessee, ‘the first cousin of Kentucky’, is honoured with a full suit of Jack Daniel’s labels. 


The Blues Kitchen Camden says
Serving up hearty Texan BBQ and blues music, The Blues Kitchen brings a touch of Southern soul to Camden High Street. Vintage concert posters, light fixtures made from gramophones and luxury leather style booths - not to mention the knowledge that music icons including Seasick Steve, Gary Clark Jr, Pete Doherty, Vintage Trouble and The Strypes have played here - make The Blues Kitchen feel like its been here forever. Highlights on the menu include 16-hour slow smoked beef ribs and the best buffalo wings in town.
