The new issue includes a rundown of the best longstanding local eateries you may have forgotten about in your race to Caravan or Grain Store (both excellent choices too, of course). Elsewhere MOBO nominated rapper Ghetts reveals his favourite venues in London, we meet hip streetfood vendors Club Mexicana, and uncover the sometimes shocking history of Housmans alternative bookshop.
Don’t understand the name? Simple: it symbolises both the area’s industrious past (there were once 23 of the magnificent Victorian structures) and its future, now that the iconic Gasholder No.8 is back in place. Even better, it’s set to be a forthcoming arts venue and park.
Meanwhile, flip the issue over for our other north London title, Kentishtowner. This month it’s a whopper of an Archway special. Check out the specially-commissioned front cover artwork by Franck Allais, meet a load of “Archwegians”, and soak up a five page guide that reveals the best cafes, pubs, eateries, shops and other attractions.
Archway-phobe? Fear not, as there are the usual exciting regular features: we revisit underrated local institution the Kentish Canteen, author Joanna Briscoe meets the owners of Dartmouth Park’s charming Truffles Deli, and our columnist Sarah Park delves into the perils of dating older guys.
The joint issue of Gasholder/Kentishtowner is now available FREE at 100+ key pubs, bars, shops and cafes in eight London postcodes: N1, WC1, N1C, NW1, N7, NW5, N19, and NW3 and WC1 (see map and list below).
