Our Hidden Gems:

Everyone knows about the world famous Camden market, but we wanted to give you two of our favourite lesser known places to head during your stay:


  1. Jazz Cafe: Located in the heart of Camden, the Jazz Cafe is an intimate music venue that hosts an array of live performances, ranging from jazz and soul to funk and world music. Catch a show and experience the soulful rhythms and electrifying performances in this legendary venue.
  2. Little Venice: Tucked away in the southern part of Camden, Little Venice is a hidden gem that offers a peaceful escape from the city's hustle and bustle. This picturesque area features canals lined with narrowboats, charming waterside cafes, and beautiful tree-lined pathways. 


Our Foodie Recommendations:

We can't expect you to eat with us in Belushi's every night, so we’ve added in a couple of local restaurants we personally recommend. 


  1. Mildred's: A popular vegetarian and vegan restaurant that offers a creative and flavourful menu. From hearty burgers to innovative salads, Mildred's provides delicious plant-based options that cater to various dietary preferences.
  2. The Cheese Bar: Located in Camden Stables Market, The Cheese Bar is a paradise for cheese lovers. Indulge in a wide variety of mouthwatering cheese-based dishes, from classic grilled cheese sandwiches to gourmet cheeseboards, accompanied by fine wines and craft beers.
  3. 🍃Plant Option - Mildred's: This well-known vegetarian and vegan restaurant with a location in Camden. They offer a diverse menu of vegan and vegetarian dishes, including burgers, curries, and salads.


Our Local Pub/Bar Recommendations:

As long as you start and end the night with us we won’t be too picky about where you end up in the middle. 


  1. The Black Heart: A rock and metal pub with a lively atmosphere and regular live music performances. Enjoy a pint of beer while immersing yourself in the energetic rock music ambiance.
  2. The Hawley Arms: A historic pub frequented by musicians and celebrities - so keep your eyes peeled. The Hawley Arms offers a unique blend of traditional charm and contemporary style.
