Crouch End Bars
Whilst the leafy area of Crouch End is well regarded for its wealth of family-friendly gastro pubs, there's also some great late-night bars for North Londoners who fancy a more raucous night out without the kids. From dimly-lit cocktails bars to rock 'n' roll steakhouses and funky DJ bars, here's just a few of the best bars in Crouch End.
In the summer months, St James Restaurant and Bar throws its doors and windows open to create an airy and inviting oasis smack bang in the middle of Crouch End. With its white leather stools and black, marble bar it's the ideal sleek setting for sharing a bottle of wine from their impressive selection. In the winter, you can comfort yourself with a meal from their seasonal and European-inspired menu of hearty food.
Whilst it might look unassuming from the outside, step into Cafe Loco to experience the vibrant cocktail bar and club which serves up tasty drinks and banging tunes every day of the week. If you're a cocktail fan you won't be disappointed with their extensive range prepared by their professional cocktail bartenders. Their resident DJs play the freshest club, dance and and old school hits to keep you up and dancing all night.
Head inside the iconic Ally Pally for seasonal and freshly cooked pub grub, a great wine selection and a chilled atmosphere at the Alexandra Palace Bar and Kitchen. The fact that the bar has been host to many film and photo shoots is only testament to the unique decor within the beautiful Palm Court. Head there with family for a Sunday Roast or with friends to chill with a glass of wine in the outdoor area looking out over the stunning views of London.
With its 70's retro chic decor, hearty American food and quirky cocktail list, you can bet that a night out at MonkeyNuts is just as much crazy fun as its name would suggest. Pick from their fruity cocktail list or wine menu that is helpfully divided into Cheap, Decent and Excellent! You can head in just for a drink but seeing the sticky beef ribs and chilli dogs whizzing out of the kitchen might just make you reconsider.
Fruity cocktails, party classics and friendly bar staff all add up to one cracking night out at the Moors Bar in Crouch End. Offering up an eclectic schedule of film nights, live music and parties, you can be sure that a visit will never be boring. With its comfy furnishings and fun and friendly vibe, it's the ideal venue to hit if you're new to the area and fancy a carefree and unpretentious night out.
The vintage jukebox playing rock 'n' roll hits should give away the old school, chilled vibes of live music venue, The Boogaloo. It's previously been graced by some of the UK's biggest stars, such as Coldplay and Pete Doherty, and you can expect a few more up-and-coming rocker types to be chilling in the cool venue for a few drinks. Head there soon if you share their passions for all things retro and arty!
Great cocktail happy hours and lively DJ nights make Whisperz one of the best Crouch End bars to hit if you're looking to let off some steam after a long day at work. Tuck into their antipasti platters before turning your attention to their great cocktail and wine menus. Ever Friday and Saturday, live DJs hit the dance floor to bring you the best in RnB, Soul, Hip Hop and Funk. They also hold regular salsa, comedy and open mic nights too!
For a drink in Crouch End with an added something extra, head to Downstairs At The King's Head to enjoy amazing comedy and live music. Grab a tipple from their well-stocked bar and get ready for your funny bone to be well and truly tickled.
This low-key cocktail bar attracts a clientele as eccentric as its vintage armchairs, Buddha bust and mosaic-filled decor. Older suited and booted locals and trendy youngsters mingle in the buzzing house party vibes whilst sipping on Kiss the Sky's signature cocktails. There's even a ping pong table if you fancy your night out a little less lazy.
