Karamel reopening


Karamel will officially reopen at 4 pm on 24 June 2021.

Before that we have a series of pop-up events for limited audience…  

We have been away far too long. Tom and Jason cannot wait to welcome back…
We reopen in June with a full bar, the craft beers and vegan wines you love, great music and spoken word events, but a limited food offer. Over the summer we will build up to a full food service, with your old favourites and a new focus on thalis and an exciting range of vegan Indian dishes.

Opening Hours …

            Wednesday and Sunday         11:30am –  8pm

            Thursday to Saturday              11:30am – 11pm


We have a very exciting opening programme

Thursdays and Saturday world music / jazz

Friday nights are spoken word events

Wednesday nights is our networking night – if you want to set up a networking event – let us know.

We will also be relaunching Karamel Kids, our early years arts sessions, to reflect the diversity of our beloved Wood Green.

This was made possible with support from a DCMS/Arts Council Cultural Recovery Grant.

Safety first

We have been busy making improvements to the building. We always put your safety and welfare first. This has meant we have:

  • Introduced an air filtration & circulation system
  • Introduced a new lobby to reduce heat loss and create a one-way system
  • Improved the heating system
  • Renovated the gent’s toilets (sorry ladies you are next – as soon as funds allow)
  • Greater space between tables
  • Social distancing is observed
  • Masks are worn when not at the table
  • We require that staff take regularly Covid-tests
  • Regular deep-cleans using fogging technology

This was made possible by the lottery.
