Where do Moorgate locals go?


Quirky interiors and crazy cocktails, this restaurant-cum-club is great for a number of different occasions.

The Barbican Exhibition Centre

A quirky but intimate spot for live plays and music events. Home of London Symphony Orchestra!

Duck & Waffle

This restaurant in The Heron is a great way to start the day and there's not a bad view either... Breakfast is a must!!

Flat Iron

Best steak restaurant around. So tasty and very reasonably priced!

Ozone Coffee Roasters

Proper coffee in warehouse-style surroundings and food too, served from breakfast through to dinner.

The Royal Exchange

A great place to pick up jewellery for a loved one while having lunch or afternoon tea.

Finsbury Avenue Square Market

Every other Tuesday there is a wonderful artisan market with everything from cheese and wine stalls, haggis toasties and Japanese food, to the more standard but delicious cakes, cookies and doughnuts!

St Paul's Cathedral

One of London's most famous landmarks with a beautiful, ornate interior and regular tours.

Sports Bar & Grill, Farringdon

Every sport on multiple wide screens and great burgers. The champagne cocktails are to die for!

Look Mum No Hands

A great concept for anyone who loves cycling. Full-time mechanics working upstairs that can help with flat tyres and answer any questions about bikes, as well as a great outdoor area to sit and bask in the sun with a coffee and food.


The most sophistication you can find between two kebab shops on a roundabout. A speakeasy-style cocktail bar underneath the adjacent shops, serving the best cocktail creations in town.

The Breakfast Club

Fantastic breakfast dishes served throughout the day, but be warned, it gets very busy at the weekend, so expect to queue.

Sushi Samba

Busy but buzzing and the cocktails are amazing. If you want to try sushi for the first time, no better place. Delicious!

The Folly

The Folly at Monument is like a Secret Garden! Perfect for weekend brunches, lazy lunches or catch ups after work - whatever the occasion, the Folly can do it!


A Mark Hix restaurant with a huge Damien Hurst cow and chicken on display, created specifically for Tramshed! The menu is simple but very tasty!
