Went in because the hotel desk staff said it was a great place. I agree!

Open mike night was fun, and they get a mix of talent, some good, others (like me) not so good.

Still it is a friendly place, the beer selection is good and even though crowded, still found a good place to sit and watch the show.

Also noted is that there were several groups of young ladies sitting there having a nice...more

If you like pubs that have an eclectic mix of characters who like to get boozed up whilst the DJ spins awesome classic punk/ska/rock tunes on vinyl.

Aside from being small, as many previous reviews have mentioned, Elephant's Head was a standard pub in the Camden area that just didn't happen to charge cover and just did happen to not be so full that they wouldn't let us in. Not exactly the set up for a mind-blowing experience.

It was super crowded though, and we basically spent our time sliding this way and that to stay out of others ways....more
