Towpath

Towpath

I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

The Baring

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

Ottolenghi

Ottolenghi

Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

Camden Passage

Camden Passage

Vintage and antiques shops, Camden Passage oozes character and quirkiness with great places to have a coffee or dine. Oh so pretty and quaint!

The Free Association

The Free Association

A world class improv comedy theatre tucked away above De Beauvoir Arms pub on Southgate Road. Shows multiple nights a week featuring future and current TV and live comedy performers.

The Camden Head

The Camden Head

A fantastic boozer in the heart of Camden Passage. Sit out in the beer garden watching the locals mooching around the market stalls.

Pho House

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

Newington Green Fruit and Vegetables

Newington Green Fruit and Vegetables

There isn't a vegetable or a piece of fruit that you cannot buy here. Amazing presentation and CHEAP!

The Sampler

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

Tramshed

Tramshed

A Mark Hix restaurant with a huge Damien Hurst cow and chicken on display, created specifically for Tramshed! The menu is simple but very tasty!

The De Beauvoir Deli Co.

The De Beauvoir Deli Co.

This is a fab little deli with homemade cakes, tonnes of local produce and some really great cheese! There's always people sat outside enjoying a sandwich and a coffee...

Clutch

Clutch

An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

Highbury Arts Club

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.

Oval Space

Oval Space

A club based off Hackney Road where international DJs and live acts play regularly. It also has terrace parties in the summer.

Belle époque

Belle époque

Delicious bread and cakes that look too perfect to eat!

Why not explore the nearby areas of De Beauvoir Town, Canonbury, Hoxton, Newington Green, Dalston, Islington, Highbury, Caledonian Road, Shoreditch and Clerkenwell

"The first canned food was patented by a merchant in Hoxton called Peter Durand in 1810. Sadly the invention of the can opener was still fifty years away and they had to be opened by a hammer!"

Alongside all the restaurants and bars that make Upper Street so popular are the architectural gems that add character to the area.

Nick Batten

Canonbury and Islington are renowned for their beautiful Regency architecture that attracts so many of the local residents.
