Just opened this week directly opposite the Roundhouse is Selina Camden, a 30-room hotel aimed at nomadic travelers and clued-up locals alike.

It’s the latest outpost from the acclaimed boutique hotel group, who chose Camden Town as the perfect pad for those looking to immerse themselves in the local music and culture scene. And with the year of lockdowns turning everything on its head, that includes those of us looking for a change of scene without travelling too far.

So we’ve teamed up with Selina Camden to offer a prize of a night at the hotel plus dinner for two people. They promise to give you the best available room on the date you choose, which could include the top floor suite complete with panoramic views across the neighbourhood (see pic above).

Your prize also includes a meal for two in the Powerplant restaurant, which also opened this week and is serving an innovative 100% plant-based menu. It’s already causing a stir a big newcomer in the area’s ever-growing range of world-class vegan dining options. Look out for groundbreaking dishes such as the Falafel Waffle (pictured above) with fresh tomato, fermented turnip and mango plus nifty vegetable takes on classics like bibimbap noodle salad or a rich aubergine tartare.
