The name says it all, find the best place in this amazing location, Angel
13 November 2015
As the name may suggest, Angel gives off an almost divine feel when you are there. It has so much to offer, amazing central location, tasteful socialising and beautiful scenery and this area of Islington is part of London’s illustrious history.
Within the boundaries of North London zone 1, Angel takes its name from the Angel Inn that used to dominate the area however it shut just twenty years after the tube station was opened in 1901. In the main shopping area, cast your eyes to the 15 metres by 18 metres across Angel sculpture by Wolfgang Butress which remains the obvious but impressive ode to the area.
A main gem of Angel is Upper Street which has earned the nickname of ‘Supper Street’ due to the many upmarket pubs, cocktail bars and restaurants littered along it. There are so many options to eat and drink here and it is without doubt one of the best areas in London for this and its Londoners flock are here just for that.
For eating, you should make Café La Divina your first stop. The family run Italian restaurant serve hearty food from the home country that it is honestly priced and the locals love it. If you fancy an after dinner drink, head to The Ladybird Bar which serves innovative cocktails in amongst a small but chic interior.
If cocktails aren’t your thing but music is. There are plenty of bars that host live music throughout the week but the pick of the bunch would have to be Round Midnight. This place shows live blues and jazz every night of the week, and the Tuesday jam night frankly is unmissable as it always has a wide range of music being played by random musicians off the street but it is always good.
Myrooms is proud to offer you these comfy warm feeling rooms within this great location. You really can find anything you’d ever need in Angel. If you lived here you rarely would need to leave its famous surroundings and that’s exactly why the locals love it here. And you will too.
