Chronicles of one girl's journey to London - from conception to eventual migration.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011


Today is my intern's 21st birthday (the fact that I have my own intern still thrills me and will one day probably get its own entry).

After work, we decided to celebrate in Camden, starting at The Cuban in the Stables Market.
To start, if you haven't yet been to the Stables, it is well worth checking out! These were genuine stables once upon a time and now house several bars, restaurants and fetish shops (Cyberdog being a very famous one).

So, The Cuban is usually a pretty sexy place to spend an evening. On a Tuesday, however, not so much...
It was quietish and then only got worse when they turned today's friendly England v Sweden match on FULL BLAST.

We shuffled out quickly and then headed to Proud - I've blogged about Proud before and it's still up there as one of my favorite bars in London. We found out we had to pay to get in though so abandoned that idea and headed to a random pub for £2.50 Jaegerbombs! By now, we'd all decided we were starving but this pub's kitchen was closed so we headed across the Camden Lock to Ice Wharf. It's a bar operated under the famous Wetherspoon's brand, and so had cheap food till late enough.

Camden is a great place to spend a night, and there is something for everyone. Definitely a place worth checking out!

  1. Camden is a great place for night-life. Be sure to try the dim sum at Silk and Spice on Chalk Farm Road, so good, and it's 50% off Monday to Wednesday!

    For a treat Gilgamesh is brilliant and they usually have 50% their set menu which is worth every penny. The restaurant is like entering another world after coming in from the middle of the market.
