Wondering where to eat authentic texan BBQ whilst enjoying some rare vintage Bourbon, served with a side of swinging live music in the very heart of Camden? Well look no further, The Camden Watch Co has found and sampled the best place for you - The Blues Kitchen Camden.
Since 2009, when The Blues Kitchen first opened its doors in Camden, it has been London’s home for Rhythm and Blues, and although you may go there for the live music (which is on seven nights a week by the way), it’s the good food, the great drinks and the inviting atmosphere that will keep you there. So we decided to finally do an actual review of this seriously cool Camden venue, to give you a little insight into one of the best places to go out in Camden.
Entering the Blues Kitchen in Camden, feels like being transported to the Deep South: big leather dining booths, a long bar showcasing over 50 rare Bourbons and whiskies, a stage for live music, all lit up with quirky design details like the extraordinary light fixtures made out of gramophones.This old school yet contemporary bar-diner not only charms you with its looks, but truly warms your heart with its southern soul.
The Blues Kitchen Camden has welcomed and welcomes still some of the world’s leading artist! From The Stripes, to Big Joe Louis, without forgetting Pete Doherty, the venue always makes sure you’ll have the best night in Camden. Moreover, they organise some of the best events in London, like the Brass Roots Summer Takeover this Friday, confirming that you can never get tired of the Blues Kitchen.

One thing is certain, if you want to dine at The Blues Kitchen Camden, then you better come hungry. With a generous selection of food, from starters to main, to sharing plates and desserts, it is by far one of the best places to eat in Camden. From its renowned Saint Louis pork ribs, which are slow cooked for 8 hours, to some of the best Buffalo Wings in town, and of course its ‘chicken fried’ cauliflower for the vegies, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better place that offers quality food at affordable prices.
And if that’s not enough, every month The Blues Kitchen Camden hones all its creativity into one burger - the Burger of the Month. July welcomed the Hound Dog Heart Attack, which was an explosion of peanut butter, fried banana and steak. This month, it’s the turn of the Cheese Louise, the perfect fusion between a cheese toasty and a burger. Sound strange? Well, you’ll just have to try it for yourself before September.
We could head to the Blues Kitchen any day of the week, but our favourite day is without a doubt Monday, for Rib Night. If there’s a better way to spend a Monday than eating enormous pork and beef ribs for only £10 then we haven’t found it. (And we should know, when we first launched with a pop-up on Camden High Street back in 2014, we went to rib night every week, our treat for working every day non-stop). And don’t worry if you are not ready to fill your belly, the bar offers an amazing selection of bourbons, whiskies and milkshakes to boot. Don’t be late for Happy Hour!

Back in late 2016, we launched what our first ever Limited Edition watch. Based on Tom Sayers, a champion bare-knuckle boxer from Camden, it was a steel No.88 with a black dial limited to 200 pieces, and we loved it.
Produced in four batches of 50, each batch sold out fast, and ever since we have received emails and messages asking us if by any chance we've held any back (we haven't), or even if it was possible buy our very own edition (it isn't).
