Camden Beer Hall is a new summer hangout for beer fanatics.
As proud residents of Camden Town ourselves, Secret London is always keen to see new arrivals in the area. And though we’re being treated to an NYC-style Highline and a luxe new pub for Camden Market, we’re also extremely excited by the news of the new Camden Beer Hall, a Bavarian-style beer house that’s been brought to life by the team at Camden Town Brewery. It has just opened to the public, and you can bet big that we’ll be amongst the first ones down there for a pint!
Camden Beer Hall is billed as a “beer and food venue dedicated to all things fresh”. That means freshly-pulled pints, and fresh, seasonally-inspired cooking from chef Theo Randall, who has designed the food menu for the new place. This leads to an interesting confluence of cuisines, as Randall’s love of Italian cooking meets the dishes of a traditional Bavarian beer hall. Reckon we’ll see a bratwurst pizza at some point?
The site’s food offering includes a ‘Slice Bar’, serving pizza with a ‘Camden twist’. What might that mean, you ask? This rosemary and sea salt infused focaccia with grilled aubergine, porchetta, spicy nduja, and creamy scarmorza cheese on top is only one of the delicious options you can indulge in at the Camden Beer Hall.
The venue is located at the original Camden Town Brewery site, in the railway arches beneath Kentish Town West station. Creating the Camden Beer Hall required a complete overhaul of the original brewery bar, with the team drawing inspiration from the Bavarian drinking halls they visited when attempting to create their now-ubiquitous Hells Lager. This also led to a threefold increase in space both inside and out, allowing them to pack even more beer-hungry punters in for a round.
Visitors can enjoy beers fresh from the tank, and there are twenty taps on the bar. Everything from the brewery’s core range is represented here, whilst they also pour pints from their innovative Arch 55 series and other exclusive small batch beers that won’t be found anywhere else in London.
You’ll also be able to join an immersive Camden Beer Hall brewery tour, which will teach you all about how Camden Town Brewery creates their famed beers, and ends with a beer tasting session.
Oh, and merch! Speaking as someone who absolutely lives for merch, I’m particularly excited by the in-house merchandise shop, filled with t-shirts, tote bags, exclusive Beer Hall merch, and – naturally – more beers.
Camden Beer Hall is now open for drinking sessions and tours from, and adds another excellent option to what’s shaping up to be an unforgettable summer!
Find it at Wilkin Street Mews, NW5 3NN. Nearest station is Kentish Town West.
