I love this bar. It definitley doesnt have a buzzing atmosphere though. It is small, dark, and moody, and chic. I normally come here for the not-very-cheap but very strong cocktails. Its impossible to have 2 and not feel tipsy. Its also open til about 2am on weeknights. Pretty late for upper street. The doormen are normally friendly, the bar staff average.

Cool little bar in Angel. It’s small but has a cool atmosphere. They serve these giant cocktails which are a lot of fun and pretty tasty. You can get a couple for the table, chill and share.

This bar is great, ended up here on a Friday night, it is pretty small so if you are going with a few people make sure you reserve yourself a table. The music was fantastic, this is the only bar that I have found that plays non mainstream hip hop and mixes it up. Great if you don’t want a heavy night but still want to have fun. The decor is trendy and it can get packed, so get there early 🙂

This is a cool cool bar but it really doesn’t have the wild pack-out vibe that other places do on Upper Street, Slim Jims etc. But for a good hip lounge area – it’s a great place for your extracurricular activities. It does have real cool decor – reminds me of places I’ve been on Miami’s South Beach – yet nowhere near as wild. We walked in with a group of about 15 and they immediately turned the music on & loud. We got the real big square white leather table in the back left corner and it was like a little VIP room – which was cool because our group was getting pretty rowdy. Finally – I like any place that has Asahi on draft – its a great beer and I do not mind paying £4 for a pint of Japan’s finest.

I think it’s absolutely hilarious that I am the Duchess of the Ladybird right now, but let’s go with it okay? I’ve been to the Ladybird twice, both late in the night. The first time, I was dissuaded from ordering a drink by the minimal selection of on draught drinks. I can understand the Ladybird kind of dissolves into a dance place as the night wears on (I learned this on my second visit), but when you come to have a drink and relax and chat, it’s a bit disappointing to be faced with only bottles. On my second visit, I was much more pleased, and found that the DJ was quite good. I again didn’t order a drink, though tried plenty of others during my time. It’s certainly a good place in Islington to go in the night if you want to have a drink and a dance, and don’t want it to be too crazy. Ladybird can get crazy, but not that crazy, and that’s what I like about it.
