A Selection Of The Finest Pubs, Bars And Restaurants In N19
Whether you’re looking for a swanky cocktail bar, down-to-earth gastro pub or a delicious meal out, Tufnell Park has everything you need for a great night out.
Surrounded by famous trendy hotspots such as Hampstead, Islington and Camden, it’s easy to see why Tufnell Park gets forgotten about when it comes to planning a great night out. Yet, those in the know stay on the doorstep and spend their evenings in the many gastropubs, cocktail bars and live venues that N19 has to offer. Here are 10 compelling reasons why you should join them.
Listen To Live Music At The Dome
For an evening of live music, head to the Dome to listen to newcomers on the London band circuit. Previous acts include the likes of Nirvana and Jamie T. Dome is hosting its 4th annual Raw Power Festival in 2017 which will feature acts from the psychedelia, heaviosity and electric innovation worlds.
Night Out In A Former Loo
Within walking distance of Tufnell Park tube station is the ‘Ladies and Gentleman’ cocktail bar. Once a Victorian public lavatory, this has been transformed into rather a swanky establishment that uses locally sourced ingredients and syrups made from Kentish Town honey – delicious!
Spend Summer In A Beer Garden
If you’re looking for somewhere to pick up a tan while supping on your favourite pint or glass of Chardonnay, then the Junction Tavern on Fortess Road is just the place to be. When the nights draw in, you might instead enjoy the ample conservatory which is nicely lit in the evenings.
Good Ole’ Fashioned Rock n Roll
If you fancy a night out enjoying some authentic rock music, then wander down to Aces and Eights on Fortess Road. Feeling a bit peckish on your night out? Not a problem – this joint is famous for its pizzas.
Celebrating St Patrick’s Day
You can celebrate St Patrick’s Day at any time of the year if you go to Boston Arms on a Saturday night. Located opposite Tufnell Park tube, you can expect Guinness and Murphy’s on tap and some energetic Irish music.
Curry On The Party
If you’ve ever felt hungry after a couple of jars, why not grab your mates and head to The Spice on Fortess Road for a delectable curry feast. Those that love their spices will devour the speciality dish Chicken Tikka Morissa – barbecued meat cooked in a green chilli, garlic and spicy sauce.
If you’re looking for a chic gem of a place that only the locals know about, then go to the Hideaway bar on Junction Road where an expert mixologist creates breath-taking cocktails. The late licence till 2am on Fridays and Saturdays keeps the party going till the early hours.
Satisfy That Sweet Tooth
For those who have sugary cravings on a night out, visit Tufnell Park Tavern and order one of their delicious puddings. Choose from treats such as Vanilla Cheesecake, Bread and Butter pudding with red currant compote or homemade dulche de leche ice cream.
Cosy Up In A Traditional Boozer
If you prefer an evening spent in pleasant company around a log fire then the Lord Palmerston on Dartmouth Park Hill is the place for you. This traditional Victorian pub might surprise you though – don’t be surprised if they’re holding a life drawing class or hosting a pop-up gallery on your next visit.
CAMRA recently named ‘The Pineapple’ its North London pub of the year in 2015. Off the beaten track, this local boozer serves Thai food and serves lots of real ales to suit the connoisseur. Based on Leverton Street you’ll have to go looking for it, but you won’t be disappointed when you get there.
If by now you’ve realised that Tufnell Park is the place to be, don’t just settle for a night out – why not get in on the action and consider moving there? Visit Tufnell Park letting agents today to find out more about the area.
