Aces & Eights, Tufnell Park

Aces & Eights, Tufnell Park

Maybe it’s the sticky-carpeted, badly-lit clubs and pubs we frequented as youngsters, but, there’s something ever so appealing about the classic American dive bar that – like it or not – gets us somewhat excited. Now north London’s Tufnell Park may not be the gritty streets of New York’s Lower East Side, but with nearby Camden, there’s probably more than a passing local interest in the rock and roll vibes that brothers Niall and Patrick Donnelly are hoping to deliver with their newly opened, and decidedly authentic, 160 capacity saloon bar and live music venue. With cut outs of glamour models and pin-up girls dotted between the obligatory tour posters, Aces & Eights‘ grungey interiors are the perfect antidote to anyone tiring of the staid interiors that the masses of paint-by-numbers chains mercilessly ply up and down the country. Authentic, perfectly executed and a welcome breath of fresh air, the Donnelly brothers’ latest is an ace in our book…
