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.

Think I've definitely found my favourite pub in London. Its in Camden, but a bit hidden away which is cool...they have the flowers like,e you get at a funeral saying 'dad' or whatever but with 'black heart' on the wall which is very striking.

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

I don't often go to Camden, which I would like to be the first to admit is a bit silly. After all, Camden feels distinctly like home, yet clearly English, which is probably why it resonates with all of me, including the American citizenship and the Anglophile heart. That all said, as part of an impromptu let's-do-Camden-tonight, the Black Heart was absolutely my favorite spot along the way,...more
