Greater London Pubs: Islington: Buffalo Bar
It could be the appeal of being five metres away from the tube station, or maybe the 'secret society' feeling of descending a bland flight of stairs into a marvellous neon cavern of fairy lights, dimly lit tables and independent press scatered everywhere.
Buffalo Bar is the beating indie heart of N1, with regular nights such as the mutton Club (every first Friday) or Silver Rocket (every third) throwing two fingers up to the glitz and glamour of London's overpriced and overrated club scene and even Camden's sanitized pop-rock nights.
