Culture, art and a thriving restaurant and bar scene make Islington and its more tranquil neighbour Barnsbury a real north London hotspot. With Sadler’s Wells, The Almeida and the Little Angel Theatres on its doorstep, Islington is a popular destination for performance art whilst The Angel Centre plays host to a variety of events. Camden Passage is a real treat for antique and vintage fans whilst high street retailers are just a short stroll away. If its restaurants and bars you are looking for in Islington, look no further than Upper Street, the focal point of the area. Recently nicknamed Supper Street due to its high volume of places to eat, expect to find a restaurant for most tastes along here. The more residential streets of Barnsbury offer a more peaceful setting for eating out providing the perfect contrast to buzzing Islington.
