The TroubadourKensington's original boho coffee house. Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon played here back in the 60s. Of course, Kensington has changed a great deal over the last 40 years and so has the Troubadour. These days you're unlikely to see a penniless poet in a threadbare suit, or a struggling musician in there, but it still attracts a boho chic crowd drawn by the thoroughly atmospheric ambiance. Bands huddle together on the tiny podium in the basement, as the arty crowd squeeze in round the tables and into the standing room. The roster of bands strum through an eclectic range of genres from soul and singer-songwriters, to blues and country, as well as the standard indie schedule and some more off-beat cabaret and poetry nights. But it's not just a music venue - upstairs there's a charming petite Gallic café decorated with large mirrors, stained glass, rustic wooden furniture and all sorts of coffee pots and antique instruments. It's a great place for a coffee or a bite to eat. Not to mention the delightfully sylvan garden and the upstairs art gallery.
