  • Visitor Information

Formerly known as LA2 before being bought up by the Mean Fiddler Group, this mid-sized music venue has played host to the best in modern music from established songwriters to up-and-coming bands. One of the few venues in central London to host the kind of cheap-and-cheerful indie nights that are the basis of Camden's nightlife, the Mean Fiddler is an enjoyably sweaty venue for moshers and students.
