Where do W1D locals go?

Rosa's Thai Cafe

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

Archer Street

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

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Based on Forest Gump, this lovely shrimp restaurant from the USA has opened its first restaurant in London! Amazing food and the restaurant is decked out just like you're on the film - it has its own gift shop too!

East Street

Quick and tasty Pan Asian food just off Oxford Street.

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 Crobar

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

Pizza Pilgrims

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

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!

World famous Omelette Arnold Bennett!

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

A beautiful spot to sit in the sunshine!
