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.

Good beer selection. The pub, like all London/Camden haunts, is bound to be screaming loud, even at 3 in the afternoon. The toilets, while unisex, were clean enough. The bartender assured me the wifi was up &,running but I couldn't connect no matter how hard I tried & she didn't seem to care. I liked it all right. I would go back. more

I *love* the Black Heart. I think it's my favourite pub in London. It's nicely hidden away in the alley, with barely even a sign out front. Perfect for keeping the tourists away! It's dark and cosy and no TV screens. The music is amazing, the art and decor is really interesting. I love it.

There's always an epic choice of beer available and whilst the specials aren't cheap, they are worth it... more

Popped in for a gig and it was very Camden but had a bit of new-ness about it that didn't make it too authentic, but more hipster. But maybe it is trying to be mix of both which is fine by me to be honest.

Gig was good out back. Very much like the Camden gig bars which are small and intimate. more

Great selection of beer.

Rock bar. Black decor. Loud music.

If you're up for the vibe it really hits the spot. But it might not be for you, that's ok, it's camden, go somewhere else.

Has a good vibe. Loud and chilled.

They used to do some great food. They don't anymore (at the writing of this review), which is a shame. more
