North London watering hotel Boston Music Room began life in 1884 as a community centre. Since then it’s been a cinema, swimming pool, boxing hall and dance venue, surviving two world wars and a fire to become a celebrated music hub. Bands to have performed at the venue (including adjoining sister venue Dome) over the years include Madness, The White Stripes, Blur, U2, Florence & The Machine, and Cradle of Filth. Since re-opening in 2013 after a hiatus of nearly a decade it continues to promote up-and-coming and hot talent coming out of the UK and overseas, from prog-rock and punk to metal and pop-rock.

Absolute dive. It says a lot about a place when you've only entered when you've had to many in the first place.
Ruff locals and guaranteed a fight on a Friday night. Avoid at all costs more
Ok i agree with everybody that this is not the best pub ever but come on!! You can understand from the outside that is a low pub level, don't complain! ;)
The first impression i had from the outside was "maaan, it's closed!"
Instead, we found out was open and we entered. It is a stereotype pub, i am sorry to say that, but in people imaginary a pub is the place where beer iz super cheap, old... more
Great place to watch the football with your dad and catch over a drink. Yes will find old Irish men in there but it is a pub in what used to be an Irish area. Prices are very reasonable. If reviewers don't like working class people I would suggest they go to coffee bar and not a pub. more
