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.

Camden Assembly says
Camden’s favourite boozer. Open all week for beers, burgers and good times!

Split into two floors; all are welcome at Camden Assembly- whether you're visiting us for a gig or club night upstairs or looking to grab a pint and a burger in our great ground floor bar. We keep most tables for walk-ins but can take large group bookings, too.

We can host all kinds of parties here – come and celebrate with us. Our comfy booths provide the perfect spot to spend birthdays, leaving dos, engagement parties or simply to sip on cocktails until the wee hours.

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.

A nicely small place to see a band -- so small that the band have to squeeze past the audience on the way to the exit, and then back through for the encore. Not great for claustrophobic people, though.

Great, intimate venue for concerts. The decor of the stage with red bubble lights is great too. They put on interesting acts, such as Nordoff Robins series that is happening in December for charity. The only thing is that it is quite stuffy in the venue so beware of this.

I saw Lucy Rose live in the Barfly earlier this year and the venue was absolutely on point for her music. An intimate space, which couldn't have fitted Lucy Rose's vibe any better! I've never heard of anyone else talk of the Barfly, even though I imagine any Londoner has walked right past its door hundreds of times!

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.
