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….

MEATliquor (as the name suggests) is our thing, but we’re not just burgers and booze… Expect beef, halal chicken, veggie, plant-based, dogs, wings, rings and fries. Not forgetting the little people, we've got a kids menu with beef, chicken & plant-based options.

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 MEATliquor garden with plenty of outdoor space, a full bar with Tank Fresh beer as well as plenty of room for big parties with large communal tables and booth seating for parties up to 6 and a separate mezzanine dining area.

Our £10 lunch deal is available weekdays until 3pm.
We’re also very dog friendly.
Close to the O2 Academy Islington, The Garage, Islington Assembly Hall, Angel Shopping centre and Arsenal Emirates Stadium.

Love this place . Amazing service and food as usual was top drawer. Only niggle on half price menu was people weren’t tipping at appropriate levels I quadroued the service to make up for other freeloaders😜

Great food and drinks but could do with lowering the volume on the music slightly as it’s hard to hear the people you are dining with.

music can be too loud to have a proper conversation with the person you’re with so you end up spending the whole night leaning foreward, but staff were lovely and helpful and food was amazing.

Had an early dinner with some work colleagues here just before Xmas. Good, friendly service. Burgers were very tasty and a decent selection. Would visit again if in the area.

Absolutely incredible buffalo wings, and general meaty happiness. Great atmosphere, the staff on the night were a joy. Great selection of drinks, not too overpriced. Great space to be in, fueled us right up before the gig at the O2 down the road. Will be back for sure.

Excellent food, great trendy space but seriously lacking in the service department. It was not a particularly busy night when I visited, plus I had a booking, but was made to wait by the bar as my table was not ready, then left there for ages, when I could see the tables emptying. I had to remind the staff I was there and was eventually moved to a table. There seemed to be more staff standing around chatting, than actually serving. Again, for a quiet night, you would expect top notch service, not half arsed service from hipster kids who are clearly not that interested!

Great place. Booked the one at kings cross but they had technical problems so they had to close so they rang and asked if I wanted to go a different venue. They booked a table at angle and gave a discount for the problem.

Great food as always! Service was slick and fast. Always have a good time when we visit MeatLiquor. This was our first time at N1 and loved the decor and the hidden appearance. Will be back again soon!

Fantastic food. Service not good. Had to wait ages for someone to take our order, then 3 people came all at once! After our food was brought to us, we didn’t see anyone at all - had to walk around to find someone to order more drinks. Burgers were delicious.

Disappointing I’m afraid... food nothing special and we had to send coleslaw back as it had clearly been sitting round for quite a while. Thanks to the server who took it off the bill when we showed him how bad it was. To be honest we should have sent the lot back but was a date night so pretty embarrassing.. won’t be back I’m afraid.

Sides served cold and not replaced until burgers finished. Pickles in burger ordered without. No staff took responsibility for our order and were difficult to catch even though restaurant was half empty
