The Hawley Arms

A celebrity hangout and all-round quality pub. Read More


The Hawley Arms has quite the location, sitting just beyond the lock next to Camden market.

This is the pub that Amy Winehouse supposedly came to often when she was alive. Went to check it out with my British friend yesterday and I gotta say it was quite an unfriendly atmosphere. The bar tenders had a "take it or leave it" kind of attitude, people at the bar wouldn't move to allow others in to buy a drink. It was crowded for sure.

Yep I love music and the music history certainly seeps through the walls here and everything on paper tells me I should absolutely love this pub. But I don't. I'm sorry.

Great pub. Been here both day & night. Daytime is chill & they have good pub food. Nighttime is wild & rowdy. The music is good & the people are always interesting but very friendly. And they have a cute garden area. Also if you're an Amy Winehouse fan, you'll definitely have to pop in as this was her fav Camden haunt. more

It was cold the night I went but there's a rooftop terrace upstairs as well. more

I don't know what it is about this place--it's just awesome. Great vibe, great beer selection. Its nothing too special, but darn it, I just like it. No place I'd rather be after a big shopping spree at the Camden Market. more
