Each month, popular cultural site the Londonist explores the watering holes of a different part of the capital. And today we’ve teamed up with them to pose one simple question: what’s the best pub in Kentish Town?
The definition of what counts as Kentish Town is up to you. You can of course stray into Tufnell Park, Dartmouth Park, Gospel Oak or Chalk Farm, so long as your choice might reasonably be included on a Kentish Town pub crawl. (By ‘pubs’, we’re using a shorthand — you can also vote for bars.)
So, Pineapple or Southampton? The Grafton or Camden Brewery? Old Eagle or Abbey Tavern? Tapping The Admiral or Fiddler’s Elbow? The Oxford or Lion & Unicorn? O’Reilly’s or Quinn’s? Lord Palmerston or the Star? Aces & Eights or Tufnell Park Tavern? Assembly House or Hoot ‘n’ Annie’s? Bull & Last or the Vine? Junction Tavern or Dartmouth Arms? Torriano or Lord Stanley? Boston Arms or Hideaway? Lord Southampton or the Bluebell? Shebeen or Knowhere Special? Phew. Leave the name of your fave below, or tweet us using the hashtag #bestKTPub.
We’ll tally up the votes across all platforms on Thursday and co-publish the results with the Londonist, who’ll then arrange a pub crawl around the four most popular choices (date to be confirmed). It promises to be nothing short of a riot.
Oh, and you can nominate more than one place. All nominations count as one vote, whether you rank them or not. Likes on Facebook and retweets of someone else’s vote are also counted as new votes.
So, Kentishtowners: what’s your favourite pub in Kentish Town?
