A great little venue/bar. Drinks a bit above average but not too expensive.

I came on a Friday, and thoroughly enjoyed the Indie music which were being played.

Upper Street is full of great places to eat, shop and hang out. If you walk a little further towards Highbury & Islington station, you'll find The Buffalo Bar tucked neatly beside the tube station.

The Buffalo Bar has gained a reputation for being the venue to go to if you want to experience the best of the indie scene. Some of their club nights have been running for years and they attract...more
