Picture of Grand Union Camden, Camden, London

Grand Union Camden, Camden (Bar / Restaurant / Club)
“Having recently moved to Camden a work colleague recommended I try the Grand Union for a few drinks with friends on a Thursday evening. We only intended to have a bottle of wine between the three of us and then move on somewhere else but we ended up there until closing time! Having sat down with a bottle of the house white, which was really great for just over a tenner we watched loads of their burgers get taken past us and decided we couldn’t resist trying one. Spoilt for choice we decided to order a different one each so we ended up with a smoked chilli, a greek lamb and a cheese and bacon. The only downside was that we all lost complete respect for one anothers table manners whilst eating but this was quickly rescued by the satisfaction that comes after eating a grand union burger! Unlike many bars in Camden where the cocktail list is either non-existent or intimidatingly long and complex the list here is a small selection of classics with a few house specialities thrown in for good measure. The ginger aussie behind the bar was helpful and pointed out the Bramble, the Gin Garden (which sounds so weird but is actually awesome) and the Old Fashioned (scary amounts of alcohol considering how easy to drink and tasty this is!) Not being cocktail connoisseurs we were glad of his advice and he turned out to be spot on.”
