The Dolphin pub is at the mid-point between King's Cross/St. Pancras and Euston train stations. If you want a real English pub experience in London, then this is the place to do it. However, just make it a quick one since locals tend to treat strangers with a cold shoulder. There is outside patio if you need a quick breath of fresh air while you enjoy refreshments. There is a pool table, and even Thai curry available to fill your cravings.

The Scala London is one of the hottest entertainment venues in Camden Town.

Whether you want to watch an indie rock concert, or just want to dance the night away with a fashionable crowd, Scala London is the place to visit. Call for event timings and additional information.
The red canopy shading the patio eating area is easy to spot whilst strolling along Hunter Street, and like a moth to light you can't help but be drawn towards it when the hunger pains start to rumble. Furthermore, Sugar Cafe won't let you down at lunchtime with a healthy selection of fresh bread heartily stuffed with a generous helping of fillings. Since Sugar Cafe is slightly off the beaten-tourist track, it's much quieter than most other places nearby, so is an ideal spot to grab a bite eat and enjoy the quiet away from the hustle and bustle of busy London.
Near King’s Cross station yet tucked away from the main thoroughfare, this intimate cocktail bar used to be part of a timber yard. Successful conversion has resulted in a sophisticated yet cozy venue with high ceilings, wooden floors and open brickwork. Service is attentive; the friendly mixologist will make up to 250 different cocktails to order, from Cellar Classics like the Cosmo to Cellar Creations such as Awkward Moment, Quantum of Seduction, and the endlessly popular Jammy Dodger and Cheesecake cocktails. Other beverages include French bottled beer Kasteel Cru and Argentinian beer Quilmes, while wine is selected by the resident expert who is a judge for the International Wine Challenge. It’s an excellent central London choice for discerning drinkers looking to avoid the throng.

Mabel's is a traditional English pub with a lively atmosphere. Famed for its award-winning real ales and warm welcome, it is a popular hang-out with locals and after work drinkers, who pop in to catch up on the latest gossip and the sports on the Sky TV. The gossip is often about Mabel herself, a former owner of the house who died in 1970, but rumor has it she still haunts the premises and operates the dumb-waiter (which was ripped out years ago). It also serves a good variety of traditional pub grub, so if you're looking for a warm and hearty meal and the chance to get the spooks, pop into Mabel's tavern.
