    Not a huge amount of metal passes through the Barfly but it’s a staple of the toilet club circuit so there’s a fair chance of finding something pretty rocking in here. Read more

    One of my favourite venues in London. Small and intimate. The perfect place to see bands before they get to big.

  • Andrew D.

    What an awful venue for a gig. Cramped, poor sound, tiny and inept bar. A poor imposter of The Underworld

    Nasty place. There are so many options in camden...don't come here

    Carl Barât is organizing weekly events called Jubilee at Barfly. November 11 evening will feature a show by Carl himself with his full band.

    There is a low ceiling upstairs, so beware any guitarists trying to do an 'Angus Young' on their roadie's shoulders!

    Good little venue for seeing some great new bands

    Rob W. · April 1, 2011

    Perfect venue for new music - it's always hot, the toilets are grimey but the sound is spot on. Also home to the new LTD club night, which is fun! Read more

    Sick all over the toilets, plastic cups and slippery floor like an ice rink. Reminds me of uni, but not in a good way!

    Saturday night is ace but careful: bouncers are proper dickheads and the lady at the door will give you the wrong change. Always.

    I love this place! My brother has seen some awesome bands perform here, one being ‘The Audition’. I saw Mike Dignam perform here. Such an awesome place and I love Camden town. So much to see and do :)

    Don't say you're down for a photopass. The male on the door will get irate and say they only have wristbands, not photopasses!
