Where do Piccadilly Circus locals go?

Kingly Court

A variety of restaurants for every occasion and budget, which are centred round a covered courtyard.

MASH

This American steak house serves delicious high-quality food with a Danish twist. The Art Deco interiors are really cool too!

Savile Row

The best tailors in Europe. Bespoke or off the rail, there's something for everyone's budget.

The Crobar

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

Bó Drake

Bó Drake has a relaxed, Soho vibe serving a fantastic selection of small plates and sharing dishes of modern Asian cuisine. The impressive cocktails alone are a reason to go. Look out for their seasonally themed drinks available during Bó Drake Late every Friday and Saturday night too!

The Gallery, Sketch

A stylish spot for afternoon tea, but be sure to check out the toilets that are shaped like eggs!

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...

Archer Street

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

Rosa's Thai Cafe

Freshly made dishes with lots of taste - great for sharing and reasonably priced wine too.

Pizza Pilgrims

As well as an intimate, homely atmosphere, the pizzas are delicious and very very affordable, starting at only £5!

easyGym

A hidden gem gym at the top of the Plaza Shopping Centre. It's been the setting for a few famous ITV film shoots and has an excellent double gym class session on a Sunday morning!

Said

The most dreamy place for a late night hot chocolate...

St James's Square

Beautifully maintained, this garden square is a real retreat from the hustle and bustle of central London - it's amazing how quiet it is!

The Royal Academy of Arts

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

The Parlour, Sketch

Posh breakfast and striking, artist-designed dining rooms - perfect for a special occasion...

"In 1814, there was an explosion at the Horse Shoe Brewery on the corner of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road. A seven metre high vat of beer exploded causing a blast that could be heard five miles away, smashing through other vats and creating a sea of 1.25 million litres of beer. It was so bad that eight people drowned."
