Location & getting there
With its rows of bars, restaurants and shops, Angel is a vibrant area located within the London borough of Islington. The underground Angel station can be reached via the Bank branch of the Northern line and it is within fare zone 1. King’s Cross St Pancras, Old Street and Highbury & Islington underground stations are all within a 20-minute walk from Angel, so if you don’t mind a stroll, it’s easy to reach any underground line that you need. Nowadays Angel is a fairly affluent area, its array of entertainment venues mostly catering for the young and hip. If Islington in general is popular with families, Angel is where people let their hair down. So whether Sunday brunches or Friday night shenanigans are your thing, you’re in the right place.
Gay massage in Angel
If you are looking for gay massage in Angel, you might need to travel a little bit. None of our masseurs currently reside in the area (but if this changes, we’ll update this page!) Luis would be the closest one if travelling by underground, as he is based only two stops away in Russell Square. Then there is William in Baker Street and Jordan & Danny in Marble Arch. Of course, you can always book an outcall and have your masseur visit you at your home or hotel. Please note that outcalls cost an extra £30 to factor in the travelling time and the cost of the cab.
Things to do near Angel
See a play
I’m a big fan of the Almeida theatre in Angel. It’s small, intimate, and puts on high quality productions. Famous names like Kevin Spacey and Juliette Binoche have performed here, and plays that succeed here often get transferred to the West End, so it’s a good opportunity to see some top work in intimate surroundings. This theatre has seen such unforgettable productions as Peter Brook’s Midsummer Night’s Dream (wish I was there to see it!), but even nowadays it does deliver. Don’t snub the matinees, either – there’s something joyful in sipping wine spritz in the spring sun as you wait for the second act to start.
Enjoy some French delicacies
There are many restaurants and shops in Angel, so there’s something for any palate and budget. However, one you should definitely try is Le Coq Epicer. It’s a small deli selling authentic French produce that will charm everyone: whether you are a cheese enthusiast, a wine expert or just after some delicious and beautifully packaged pâté de anything. Visiting on a warm summer’s day? Sit at the little table outside and enjoy some fresh oysters (fishmonger across the street!) with wine at a very reasonable price. Ah, magnifique!
Have a pint and a laugh
If your plans are very last minute, you could do worse than catch some comedy at Camden Head (careful not to get mixed up – there’s more than one pub with that name in London!). It gets very packed, but there’s open mic comedy on the second floor of the pub every night of the week. Some big names have performed here, and the nights attract a nice variety of performers. You’ll hear those you’ll love and those you’ll hate, but you are unlikely to be bored. Fridays and Saturdays are the nights when professional comedians fill the venue, but the new acts over the week are also good to watch. Furthermore, the Camden Head is also a beautiful English pub, so just dropping in for a pint of ale is a delightful experience.
