6 More London Place, Tooley Street, London SE1 2DA
Situated just behind the Marks and Spencers on Tooley street is Cafe Amore, an okay little cafe with some good food options.
The menu encompasses all day breakfasts, jacket potato’s and baguettes and there is a wide range of hot and cold drinks on offer.
It is a little tourist trap as there is so little around this area and so whilst in the week it can be busy, weekends are more relaxed.
The staff do need to learn how to take orders, though, as usually the make you wait whilst they do one order at a time but returning customers can colelct cards to redeem every 10th drink or meal free.
31 Cyril Road, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire NG2 5JW
The Monster company sell a large range of movie memorabilia and figurines associated with the world of sci-fi and horror.
Here you’ll be able to find obscure items such as the Corpse Bride can of Soda, bizarre even by Tim Burtons standards, alongside comic books and film props or replicas, which would make the perfect give for any obsessives out there. The store is large, the manager extremely helpful and they have a good website for those that live miles away but like what they see.
One for the nerds or fanatical film fans this one.
18 Greek Street, Soho, London W1D 4DS
Visited this bar recently for a friends birthday and was quite suprised at how good it was, having walked past it on many occasions.
First thing you notice is the lovely interior, all deep red walls and moody lighting with some brilliant manga-esque/gorillaz type artwork adorning the walls.
The bar itself is well stocked and not too expensive and we were also offered table service which is always nice. some members of the group ordered food which they said was great though I stuck to the cocktails which were definately good.
Enjoyable bar, especially in large groups or for special occasions as I couldn’t imagine going there with less that 4 people.
148 Queen Victoria Street, Blackfriars, London EC4V 4BY
It’s not unusual for some City bars to become barren of customers after a certain time or for them to just close early, so this little bar that is always busy is obviously doing something right.
The bar is clean, spacious and the overall design is modern. The choice of draught beers are good and they also have good range of spirits and shots which makes the place perfect to come to with friends to have a good old drinking session.
Staffwise, they are very friendly and attentive and the service is quick which is always appreciated.
234 Tottenham Court Road, London W1T 7QJ
I’m not a fan of the traditional, old man type of pub and would always prefer something more modern or contempory. Saying that, this Fullers pub on one of the longest roads in London is a good safe place to go if you work in the area and maybe want to have a working lunch or post work drinks.
The menu may be uninspiring but the range of pies on offer is quite good and you’ll certainly find something to please everyone, though portions could be better and less bland overall.
The bar can get very busy on match days so I, as a non-football fan, tend to avoid these though I’m sure the sporting amongst you may enjoy downing some of their own brand ales whilst shouting at a screen. Drinkswise there’s a good selection of ales and beer and your usual spirits.
An unexciting but safe bar for wweary shoppers of sports fans.
21-23 Earlham Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9LL
Good little store promoting one of the better mid-priced designer brands out there.
Not the largest of stores so it tries to squeeze in both mens and womens fashion onto one small level which they overcome by not really having much choice.
Personally i love the jeans here, can always find a good pair without having to break the bank.
The shirts for men seem to fit the stockier, smaller guys more than us tall lanky ones and not being a tranvestite I couldn’t tell you about the womens section so…
6 Corbet Street, Spitalfields, London E1 6NN
The Mother store of this popular designer brand is quite frankly wonderful. For the uninitiated this is one of the fastest growing brands whose products are fantastic, fropm cool t-shirts and tops to funky shoes, belts and wallets.
Obviously being the head office it gets all the designs before the other stores, some exclusively so it is still worth the trip even if it’s a bit further east than you may normally go.
The store itself is massive and caters for both men and women with lots for the fashionable amongst you to get worked up over. Considering the size of the building they could possibly do with more staff but those they have are certainly polite and suitably cool enough to make you want to wear the same brand.
It slots in wonderfully with the area and draws from the trendy nearby Hoxton Crowds and astutely dressed students.
57-59 Long Acre Road, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9JL
This wonderful brand of designer clothes sets up shop in the heart of Covent Garden. Whilst not as big as the mother store in Spitalfields this is a great shop which looks fantastic and displays the clothes and products extremely well.
Ground floor is reserved for women whilst the guys have to go downstairs; both floors are spacious and airy. The range of products extends to all areas, from funky, macabre
t-shirts to accessories, in particular the brilliant wallets. Everything they sell screams quality and whilst the shop isn’t cheap you genuinely get what you pay for.
Good, polite service by the funky looking staff seals off the pleasant shopping experience which other stores nearby could well take note of.
5 Earlham Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9LL
One of the smaller branches of this wonderful brand which has nowhere near the range of clothes or products as it’s sister branch which is about 5 minutes away.
Saying that the quality of both the mens and womens fashion is second to none and whilst not cheap certainly not as expensive as other brands.
One of those that is great to pop into if you find yourself passing but otherwise head to Long Acre Road where a greater selection is available.
5 Shorts Gardens, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9AP
G-Star truly make the best jeans around at the moment in my eyes. They have many different styles all brilliantly made and not just aimed at the skinny-legged brigade which currently makes a change.
This flagship store also has many beautifully made bags and jackets. The store itself is spacious and well-staffed and makes for a pleasant shopping experience which is a must considering that a decent pair of jeans may set you back £100.
