  • Visitor Information

North London favourite The Embassy obviously has a good way with their staff. It really makes a difference when the bar people seem to be enjoying themselves, and this place positively hums with friendly good vibes. The music swings across a broad spectrum with an emphasis on Urban cuts and Hip Hop, and plenty of recognisable club favourites to get that dance-floor packed. Embassy is a great place.

Best Night: Saturday.
