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.

I adore MeatLiquor!!! Thought the brand new setting was fantastic! Thank you to the manager, who allowed my cousin and I to sit outside, and to the waitress who served us! Incredible atmosphere, the food was perfect!

Great evening! Only thing we didn’t rate was the chips. Bit dry and therefore hard to eat. Everything else outstanding.

Been to MeatLiquor several times in the past, at a few branches. This was by far the best food I've had - don't know if the recipes have been tweaked or if the chefs were just on fire but everything was spot on. The burger is usually OK and the sides make a ML trip but this time the burger was great. Onion rings were extra crunchy. Buffalo wings brilliant. Cocktails and beer were on point. Staff were friendly and working really hard, only thing I'd say is I think you need more of them on for the number of customers there - not anything against them they really couldn't have done a better job. Just fantastic, glad to have you back and look forward to coming again

Great to be back again. Can't believe it's still so quiet, so atmosphere a bit flat. Like usual, amazing food, great bloody marys and friendly staff. Dog friendly too Hot tip: the deep fried mac and cheese would be better with the old marinara sauce, which cut through the fatty cheese taste, rather than blue cheese dip, which is overkill.

Food and Service was lovely! Good value for money and the beef burgers were delicious. The ale (not on the drinks menu) was very refreshing and can come in a keg of 3 pints and is good value for money.

It was good, pleasantly suprised at how many sanitising stations there were. Everything was very clear and straightforward! I had the buffalo chicken burger and it was still as delish as ever!

Chicken wings weren't great, chicken was tough and the seasoning was a bit boring, I know it's spicy but heat doesn't make flavour. My burger pattie was good but could of done with some more fun stuff in my burger. Hard shake was delish totes get that again.

Food was great, as always. Not been to the Islington one before, but it was nice. Service was a little slow even though they were not very busy. Would happily revisit.

Probably one of the best looking burger joints I have ever been in. As an ex operations manager for Byron I have been to a few! Food first class, burger cooked pink and to perfection. Great ambience and super cool decor. Service a tad slow but only because it was early and seemed to be just the manager and 1 server. No big deal really. Will highly recommend to all

It had been a slog trying to get across town but the minute my friends walked through the door (?) a knowing nod went round, happy with my choice of burger place and more so once we'd been fed and watered. Pickle backs too, awesome!
