To give you an understanding of Slim Jim’s, let us just tell you that someone once invited us on a date here, we declined, and never ever saw them again. That’s because the ceiling of this rock ‘n’ roll dive bar is covered in discarded bras and the music is very loud, so whilst it might not scream ‘intimate date night’, Slim Jim’s is perfect for when you’re looking to get sensationally drunk on a weeknight. Not only does their 5pm to 8pm weeknight happy hour include a range of strong cocktails, you can also get four bottles of beer for £12 or a pint for under four quid. Oh, you can also order double house spirits for a casual £1.50. See, all your sensationally drunk needs covered.

Black Axe Mangal on Highbury Corner isn’t a typical restaurant. It’s loud, it’s fun, and it’s a little bit weird. And the delicious food is the same.
The Lord Clyde
Lord Clyde is an Islington pub popular with locals. The specialty here is gin, and you should also come for a Sunday roast.
For one of the best breakfasts/brunches in Islington, head to Sunday. The eggs benedict is worth the long queue.
