Islington

Essex Road

The first bar from Irish duo Aaron Wall and Ciarán Smith. Opened on December 6th 2018.

Modern Irish Hospitality was born here, that warm welcome you should get from any Irish bar around the world paired with the skill and knowledge that seen Homeboy be nominated as one of the best cocktail bars in the world. This clear, warm, inclusive ethos has set them apart across the bar scene.

Homeboy Islington is a cosy intimate space with bags of character from the rows of bottles on the back bar to the exposed brick dotted with art. Warm wood, green leather banquettes, and parquet bar counter all to a soundtrack of hip hop and RnB.

Offering an impressive Cocktail list where we believe there is something for everyone and implore you to try something new. A selection of wines, one of the most impressive Irish whiskey selections in London and known for the best pint of Guinness in London.

Live music every Thursday and Sunday from 8pm and DJs Friday and Saturday from 10pm.

Our dress code is smart casual. For some people, coming to Homeboy is an occasion, something they look forward to and like to dress up for.

No sportswear, meaning jerseys (unless we are showing the rugby) and no tracksuit bottoms.
