About MEATliquor N1

MEATliquor started as a burger van (the MEATwagon) in a Peckham industrial estate carpark back in 2010. After its theft came #meateasy, a 3 month pop-up restaurant above an abandoned pub in New Cross, which opened in January 2011. The first permanent MEATliquor site (MEATliquor W1) opened 11/11/11 and the rest was history….

MEAT and liquor (as the name suggests) are our thing, but we’re not just burgers and booze… Expect MEAT (beef, chicken, veggie, vegan), dogs, wings and rings and fries for carnivores, omnivores & herbivores. The bar offers plenty of classic cocktails with a healthy measure of our signature cocktails, craft beers, sodas and shakes thrown in too.

We’re located on Upper Street smack bang in the middle of Angel and Highbury & Islington stations in an old Citroen garage. We’ve got the only MEATliquor garden with plenty of outdoor space, a full bar with Meantime Tank Fresh lager as well as a restaurant, table football and photo booth. Our £10 lunch deal is available weekdays until 5pm. Celebrating something big? Parties are our business. Hit us up for group bookings, whatever the size. We’re also very dog friendly.
Close to the O2 Academy Islington, The Garage, Islington Assembly Hall, Angel Shopping centre and Arsenal Emirates Stadium.

cocktails disappointing was also suggested to try one of the £30 ones which was just full of ice. The food was ok but the battered items were very greasy ..chicken monkey fingers would be better of breaded. small amount of chicken covered by thick batter

Wings and burgers were decent if not great. Atmosphere, decor and style trying too hard to be different. E.g. beer served in 2/3 pints poured from 2 or 3 pint growlers. Burgers were all served up for the group on a tray then we then had to pick them up and move them onto empty tin plates. Odd for the sake of it? Also Fries/Sides are not included with the mains which came as a surprise - this could/should have been mentioned when we ordered as I would have added extras. In the end, I left hungry and somewhat baffled.

Great night out.. Great Food. Only complaint was it was very warm in the restaurant! Possibly not the place to bring children because of the language that people had written on the walls in our booth?! Which is a shame because the food is so good.

We came as a group of 8, the service was slow 2nd time we have been an exceeded our lunch hour. Yesterday was very cold in there. The food is great but it is far to slow in service, I will not be booking again as it is neither a cheap lunch or quick enough in service.

Burgers were overdone. Unusual, they're usually very good. Service was very slow for drinks. Still nice and enjoyable, just not up to usual standards.

Service was awful. There was not a single thing, drinks, starters, mains, water, bill, that I didn’t have to track down a waiter for myself. Guy on the bar was good to be fair. Should have taken the 10% off for tip, but that would have probably taken 20 mins to be worked out given how slow everything else was.

Some parts of the meal were left on the pass for a long time before the rest was ready and served, so was cold a dry when it arrived.

great evening. we absolutely loved it. cocktails great, burgers out of this world. if I could pick on one thing- it would have been nice if the blue cheese on the fries were more melted. other than that, these burgers are top 5 in london for sure.

Getting a little nervous that the MEATliquor group is expanding a little too quickly and losing its edge, but the Upper Street branch is doing pretty well to keep up the cool image of its King's Cross and Hoxton siblings...

The food was delicious. We went on the 50% off food day during the hippie hour so we ended up with £53 off our food. The chilli cheese fries are the highlight. Best cocktail is Space gin smash
