Fancy a pint of London Underground beer in a London Underground pub to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London Underground?

For a few days next month you will be able to.

Part of the London Design Festival, a “pop-up” bar will be created in the former post office sorting building on New Oxford Street.


The bar will be decorated by a company I recently mentioned who have recreated replica tube station tiles. Furniture will be produced and supplied by British brand Modus and upholstered in a selection of new woven textile designs inspired by moquette seating patterns.

The beverages are being provided by the Camden Town Brewery, who will install a micro-brewery on site and have already produced a range of Metropolitan Line branded bottled beers.

I just hope they splash out and serve the pints in these. even if they have to do a bag search of every person leaving the pub to stop thefts.

The Camden Town Bar will be open from Thur 19th Sept to Sun 22nd Sept.

  • Thurs 10am-8pm
  • Fri 10am-7pm
  • Sat. 10am-6pm
  • Sun 10am-4pm

…there will also be a number of other bars in the building, but who cares about them 😉


Update: Turns out that entry is by ticket only — which is not that obvious on the website. Register for free tickets HERE.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

  1. I hope the guys from I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue record an episode from there, and play Mornington Crescent.

    Oh yes! Several pints of No. 23 please. I doubt that I will be in condensing mode, though.
