The Black Heart


Hidden in a Camden back alley, this bar is hard to find, but once there, your heart will change from black to red with joy. The interiror is tricked out in Mexican Day-of-The-Dead decor and the bar has one of the best beer selections not only in Camden but the whole of London! There's also live music, indie, rock and retro DJs and fresh pizza bar snacks.

I love the Black Heart - and have been there for both work and play!

The food is amazing. Kimchi Cult is long gone...more

Everything here is intense. The name is intense. The location, down a back alley with a giant black heart hanging above the door, is intense. The music on the speakers is intense. The insane over-the-top intense poster and pictures that line the walls of skulls and neon crosses...more
