The Abbey (124 Kentish Town Road) is actually really pleasant. I say ‘actually’ because nobody I know goes there regularly, although, on the rare occasions when we do, we will inevitably comment on its red-lit, wooden-floored, rather elegant long bar and interior. Its winning card is a very shady secret garden, with hidden treehouse and private heaters.
They need to sort the food out though. It’s not terrible, but you’d never actually go there to eat – scran is always a default option. But there are other pleasures: live music nights and other arts-based events, and a chilled-ish KT crowd.
An art exhibition runs till Dec – We Art Camden.
