Northern Line Bars

Now we aren't going to say that the very best London bars are located on the Northern Line, but we are going to strongly imply it. Sure, things can get pretty ugly at peak times, but this oft-criticised route stops at some of the most fashionable places in the capital, and Stockwell. Read on to check out our list of the best Northern Line bars in London.

The Charles Holden

17 user reviews 4

Getting the Northern Line and want a quick pitstop? The Charles Holden in South London is a great place to head to if you're looking to catch the big game or have a cosy little date night in its beer garden. Plus their food selection is top-notch – think burgers and juicy steaks.

The Oxford Tavern

10 user reviews 5

Perfectly placed between the station and the O2 Kentish Forum, The Oxford Tavern is more than just a local's pub. Offering an impressive array of craft beer from local, regional and international creators, it's a must for any beer-lovers exploring the Northern Line.  

Venn St. Records

208 user reviews 4


Located in the heart of Clapham Common, Venn Street Records brings an alternative twist to your night out. This vinyl-clad, rock 'n' roll drinkers den is where regular live acts take the stage and the bar team knock-up cocktails like the aptly named AC/Daquiri. Seek out the statement neon sign and head inside for happy hour discounts and a cheap yet fun date night.

Lost & Found

62 user reviews 5

Found yourself knocking about Balham with some spare time to kill? Well thank goodness, as now you can shimmy on over to Lost & Found to see to a few of their inventive mixed drinks. A Red Haired Mojito and a Candy Bar are must tries, and definitely try the sharing Alice in Wonderland if you're in a group of between 3 and 5pm.

Camden London

1 user review 1

Located a stone's throw from Mornington Crescent station, Camden London is an easy-to-find watering hole for the city's thirsty folk. Pop by this opulent haven of all things grandeur for a night relishing in a load of swish sips and thumping DJs.

Looking for a quick spot to pop into? We've got you covered at Pinch. Head to the cocktail bar and get the chance to sample on Mediterranean-inspired plates from charcuterie boards to halloumi fries and yummy padron peppers.
