Hi Guys, here’s another pub in Camden. It’s quite a unique place, and you can meet lots of very, very interesting people here. Check it out and let me know what you think:
The Devonshire Arms
33 Kentish Town Rd.
The Devonshire Arms is the perfect pub to meet Goth/Cyberpunk types of people. The sign on the door says ‘strict dress code only’ and they mean it – any colour you like so long as it’s black! Do not wear a suit in here unless it’s part of your ‘dark’ look. It’s a great place to meet up with your friends and get down to some serious drinking before heading off to The Electric Ballroom (next week’s post). I don’t think this is the type of place you would bring your mother to, unless you’re in the Addams family.
I found this pub years ago when my friend, Julio and I were wandering around Camden. It looked like an interesting place. In fact, it looked so interesting that when we were refused entry, we returned home, changed into dark clothes and came back. To be honest, it was one of the best ‘spontaneous’ nights of my life.
Julio and I were introduced to a red-coloured beer that night. I don’t remember the name of it, or how it’s made, and I’m too scared to ask for it again. If you ever have to chance to visit the place, just ask the barman for it and let me know.
