Where do Arsenal locals go?

Emirates Stadium

There is only one team in North London! A good day out....

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

Franks Canteen

Delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch with a changeable menu.

Garufa

Forget The Hawksmoor. This Argentinian steak restaurant serves amazing meat and has a very cosy ambience.

Highbury Arts Club

Amazing place, so small that you may miss it if it isn't recommended! A family run business close to Highbury Barn, perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. They have now started doing jazz nights on a Thursday too.

The Highbury Barn

One of the most succulent chicken roasts you'll ever taste in a pub, with all of their meats supplied from the organic butcher just across the road.

Godfrey's

This butchers sells award-winning meat. Simples.

Girasole

A fantastic addition to the area, I love this Italian deli and café because of its tasty food and personable service.

Park Theatre

Locals of Finsbury Park and Stroud Green are very proud to have this new theatre in the area. It opened in 2013 and has very varied performances. It's right behind Finsbury Park Station.

Rowans Tenpin Bowl

This is a legendary late-night hotspot in Finsbury Park. It is open until 2:30am Friday and Saturday and has karaoke too.

Out of the Attic

A fab place for vintage finds and antiques, the stock is often spilling out onto the pavements.

The Arsenal

Perfect stop for any Arsenal fan! Underneath the railway lines at Finsbury Park, it is open all of the time, not just match days.

Street N4

Burgers, hot dogs and burritos with cocktails and beer!

My Cottage Café

Tiny little family run café with delicious Lebanese food - it's a real surprise!

  1. About Arsenal

    Arsenal is a quiet residential area located in Highbury, north-central London. Arsenal tube station is on the Piccadilly Line in Zone 2 between Holloway Road and Finsbury Park. Originally known as Gillespie Road, it was renamed in 1932 after Arsenal Football Club, who at the time played at the nearby Arsenal Stadium. It is the only Tube station named directly after a football club. The station is located in a residential area, away from any main roads, and is considerably less busy than other stations on the same stretch of line.
