GO Bars in North West London

Bars in North West London Whether you want to get your alcoholic fix by day or by night north west London as a range of bars to support your drinking habits.

If you were to think of a bar that would capture the essence of a typical Camdenite then the Mac Bar [map] would be it. With all the style of a trendy wine bar but with the relaxed feel of your local, the Mac Bar is a popular drinking den throughout the week. Whether it’s a boozy afternoon or a top night on the town, you should probably have this Camden bar on your list.

The surroundings may be a little grim but Monkey Chews [map] is a great little find. As you approach this Camden pub you may think better of a visit, but once inside you’ll find it cosy but eccentrically decorated, which you’ll probably want to keep going back to. The laid back ambience combined with the comfy chairs and the cheap cocktails make this the place to go to be out, but chilled out.

For drinking the traditional English way you should give The Holly Bush [map] pub a try. Dating back to 1643, this is one of the oldest pubs in London which has managed to avoid being converted into a contemporary drinking den. The low ceilings and collection of small rooms give this place that cosy glow which you tend to crave in winter but in the spring/summer when ‘leafy’ Hampstead comes into its own, you can enjoy alfresco drinking in a picture perfect setting.

However, if you want to avoid those pesky celebrities while you’re enjoying your pint or pina colada, then you may want to go somewhere other than the Sir Richard Steele [map] pub and The Engineer [map]. But if you do you’ll be missing out on two great north west London pubs.

At Belsize Park’s Sir Richard Steele [map] pub, you’ll find a buzzy but relaxed atmosphere and possibly the occasional famous face. The décor is far from contemporary chic but this doesn’t stop the locals from making the most of an evening there with a pint or two.

Gastro pub The Engineer [map] tends to attract people for the gastro rather than the pub, but neither part can be classed as anything less than fine. The décor is classy, the food is top quality and it still manages to inspire the words cosy and cheerful – what more could you want?
