Where do Central London locals go?

Archer Street

I love this cocktail bar! It has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to take a date.

Jamie's Italian

Just off Piccadilly Circus, this Jamie's Italian is set within a converted pub and has a terrace too that is lovely on a summer's evening. The fresh pastas and cocktails are very tasty!

The Audley

A great after work boozer. Some of its original features have been retained throughout the years, which give it an authentic pub feel.

Bageriet

A Swedish bakery selling the best cinnamon rolls in town!

Cecconi's

Without a shadow of a doubt, the best breakfast in London. A celeb hangout, you may be sat alongside Bernie and Tamara Ecclestone, Bill Nighy and Kylie Minogue.

Bellaria

This rustic Italian restaurant and wine bar has a cosy atmosphere. It's a great place for a family get together or an intimate date.

Grosvenor Square

Grosvenor Square on a balmy evening beats Hyde Park!

Inn the Park

A fantastic place to watch the world go by, with an outdoor terrace to enjoy sunny days and stunning views of Whitehall and Buckingham Palace.

Bonnie Gull

Best seafood in town on the Fitzrovia coastline... Let the smell draw you in!

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.

Choccywoccydoodah

Just off Carnaby Street, this shop is like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for grown up's! All of the chocolates are hand made by the team and don't just look good, they taste amazing too...

The Royal Academy of Arts

A world-renowned gallery with leading exhibitions such as this one from the defiant Ai Weiwei!

Mayfair Pizza Company

A hidden gem on a cobbled street in Mayfair. Simple bistro-style Italian food, a wood-fired pizza oven and really affordable for the Mayfair area.

The Crobar

Happy hour 4-9pm every day, which makes this place super cheap and cheerful for central London!

"In 1997 Rick Buckley created a number of moulds of his nose and put them up around London. Setting them beneath CCTV cameras, Buckley was mocking the controversial use of video surveillance and the ones that are still intact have become known as the Seven Noses of Soho."
