The Longford †
Casual, unpretentious pub with fresh atmosphere and high student frequency. Food is straightforward with stonebaked freshly made pizzas, at restrained prices. Surroundings are unpretentious featuring pastel hues & leather banquettes. In summer the French windows are thrown open to reveal bustling Holloway road – Metro is the perfect hideaway for a break and a cool drink in the air conditioned rooms. Welcoming and reliable.
Located alongside Holloway Road tube station this bar has the advantage of being a prime destination
for locals & commuters and effortlessly brings a fresh new vibe to the area.
Easily recognisable with its smart, coffee coloured front and imposing windows, it attracts students, young professionals and anyone looking for somewhere classy to have a good time.
Once inside, the area is spacious and welcoming, with the central, well-stocked bar stretching along the side of most of the main room. On offer are fine wines, premium spirits and a variety of international guest lagers.
Both rooms are fitted with tastefully urbane furnishings and all walls are decorated in elegant pastel shades.
The front room features the sleek bar, lounging sofas and individual leather, slate & wood details;
in the spacious back room you will find dark wood furniture, an exposed brick fireplace opposite a dramatic red leather sofa and some pleasantly unusual light fittings. Here you can enjoy modern European fusion food and gorgeous, creative sharing platters in contemporary surroundings.
The capacious back area can be hired at weekends for parties, music is kept soft & mellow during the day and turns lively & funky during the course of the evening. DJ equipment & laser systems can be set up on request for any private booking and those later nights.
Metro is the perfect place to sink into sofas, sip, savour & socialise, and proves that creativity & pretentiousness don’t necessarily have to go hand in hand.
