Camden Borough is a dedicated participant in the European Blue Badge Scheme. As long as you display your badge and clock correctly, you can park in any shared use bay in the borough free of charge. This applies to all badge holders, not just borough residents.
There is, however, a limited number of Disabled Use bays in the borough, which any Blue Badge holder can park in.
The Barfly welcome Deaf and ambulatory disabled customers and will do all that we can to ensure that access requirements are met.
Access Information for Deaf and ambulatory disabled customers.
In our commitment to make the Venue accessible, we will provide those ticket holders that require full time assistance with a free ticket for a personal assistant for access to the designated area(s). To take advantage of this scheme, please specify when you contact the venue. You will be required to provide copies of recent (2011) DLA letters that show what your current level of care allowance is. We appreciate that some people may require assistance but not receive DLA, please contact us to discuss your access requirements. When you buy a ticket for a performance at the Barfly through any outlet you automatically qualify for this scheme, you will receive a confirmation email which you must present on arrival at the event.
We do ask that only those people that would be unable to attend an event without the full time assistance of someone query through this scheme. The scheme is only available to ticket holders. Please note age restrictions may vary and Club Nights are strictly Over 18s only.
Each request will be looked at individually. The scheme is run on a first come first served basis up to the capacity of the venue's designated area(s).
The Barfly does not send out free tickets in advance: they are issued at the event.
On the evening of an event, we advise Deaf and ambulatory disabled customers to arrive at the Venue 15 minutes prior to the doors opening. When you arrive, staff will be available to assist you if required. Please ask the bar staff to contact a manager upon early arrival.
The property does not have an adapted welfare facility available.
