WC1N

A locals' guide to WC1N

"Move over Shoreditch, King's Cross is rapidly becoming the place to be! Near the City and the West End, there's load of new bars..."

Charles Cutting

"With all the shops and restaurants, sometimes you forget that there are some beautiful residential properties around Charlotte Street."

Charles Cutting

"A rich vein of restaurants and cafes...I love walking down Charlotte Street without a reservation and dropping in to any place that takes my fancy..."

Where do WC1N locals go?

The Zetter Townhouse

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

Bloomsbury Square

A beautiful spot to sit in the sunshine!

Wild & Wood

The best coffee shop in London!

My Old Dutch

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

Exmouth Market

Amazing fresh food for all tastes. Charming, especially at night. A great place to relax in the sun.

Kerbisher & Malt

Sustainable and stylish fish and chips that taste fantastic!

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!

Terroni of Clerkenwell

Terroni's on Clerkenwell Road is a charming traditional Italian café and food store offering all the delights of the old country. There is nothing better than an afternoon cappuccino with a delicious pistachio cream filled cannoli!

Bounce

A great place to enjoy a drink, food and a good game of ping pong in the founding home of table tennis!

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.

Bourne and Hollingsworth

You may have to book really far in advance, but the brunch with bottomless cocktails is definitely worth the wait! Make sure you try the French toast with clotted cream, berries and honey...

The Wilmington

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

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.

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.

Hakkasan

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.
