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.
Our comfy booths in our ground floor bar provide the perfect spot to spend birthdays, leaving dos, engagement parties or simply to sip on cocktails until the wee hours after work.
The Camden Assembly is also home to Lucky Chip who serve seven days a week, from 5pm during the week and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Every Saturday we’ll be running right through ’til the early hours fuelled by turn up tunes, party hip-hop and R 'n' B classics for only £5.

It sounds awesomely legendary,even though I've never ever been there,I eagerly look forward to the ascension,indeed...
Some say Barfly should be my nickname. That's just unfair. However I would not mind being named after this GREAT Camden hideout. Unremarkable pub downstairs, awesome music room upstairs. In the last year I have seen two amazing acts here and a few that don't quite live up to that billing. Blackberry Smoke - over from the USA were outstanding. A real raw Lynard Skynard sounding dirty down south outfit that should break through to the big time any day now. The second (pictured) was Jeannine Barry who I had seen at Borderline and C2C. She nailed it at Barfly. Check her out on http://www.jeanninebarry.com . Looking forward to my next visit to Barfly.
