One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

"The restaurant Granita on Upper Street became well known as the place where Tony Blair and Gordon Brown met to decide who was to become Labour party leader after the death of John Smith in 1994."

I love walking down Upper Street and choosing where to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner - the choice is amazing!

Within touching distance of the West End, yet retaining a vibrant neighbourhood feel, Islington is a smart choice for buyers and tenants.

About Angel

Angel is a district of London, and part of the London Borough of Islington. The Angel was originally an inn near a toll gate on the Great North Road (at what is now the corner of Islington High Street and Pentonville Road). The corner itself was in the parish of Clerkenwell which was part of the Metropolitan Borough of Finsbury until it was merged with the Metropolitan Borough of Islington to form the London Borough of Islington in 1965.
