Earl Haig Hall – General Goughs Speakeasy

If you are looking for a room with a bit of character in Crouch End, then General Goughs Speakeasy could be exactly what you are looking for. Truly a blank canvas but with a charm of it’s own, the room can hold up to 120 for wedding receptions, comedy nights, parties, theater or pretty much anything else! With it’s own bar and entrance you have the ability to be totally private and yet still part of one of Crouch Ends most popular venues – the Earl Haig Hall.
