Where do WC1H locals go?

Bloomsbury Bowling

If you ever want an alternative night out in central London, then this is the place to go. Bowling, karaoke and a club, all in one.

Bloomsbury Square

A beautiful spot to sit in the sunshine!

The Zetter Townhouse

Amazing cocktails - especially the Twinkles recommended by the waiter - impressive service, great atmosphere and a quirky, eccentric interior.

Crazy Bear Fitzrovia

A really cool bar with a great atmosphere for stylish cocktails. It's certainly one to impress friends or a date! They also do Japanese food in the restaurant.

DoubleTree by Hilton

Great for family or group dinners. Looks very classy and the food is delicious. Voucher deals are always available. If you think you can't afford the Hilton, think again!

Bobo Social

Quirky small plates, an amazing concept and an atmosphere to match. Go with friends and try a new experimental food experience...

Fraq's Lobster Shack

Amazing lobster rolls and an even better location in a buzzing area just off Charlotte Street.

My Old Dutch

The best place for pancakes on Shrove Tuesday - or any day of the year for that matter!


I love this Cantonese restaurant - the food is delicious and the cocktails are super tasty! The service is also amazing and they definitely go the extra mile to make sure you have a great experience.

The Wilmington

Just down the road from Sadler's Wells Theatre, this exceptional gastro pub is packed before a show - and rightly so.

Wild & Wood

The best coffee shop in London!

Holborn Grind

The coolest coffee shop and cocktail bar in town! It's just a stones throw from Holborn Underground Station and serves proper coffee.

The Hoxton Holborn

There is nothing better than The Hoxton's full English breakfast and a latte from Holborn Grind - these places are next to each other too.

Kerbisher & Malt

Sustainable and stylish fish and chips that taste fantastic!


They do amazing salads that fill you up, while still feeling nice and healthy. And their cold-pressed juices are superb...

"If you look carefully at the four handmaidens supporting the alcove at St Pancras Church, one can observe that they are strangely out of proportion. This is because they were delivered 12 inches too tall, and the stonemasons reduced their size by removing it from their midriff!"
