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!

An amazing restaurant for crab and steak. A very cool place where everyone sits on long tables, but don't eat beforehand as it leaves you very full!

Did you know?
"In 1814, a rumour circulated of a young rich heiress with a human body and a head of a pig, who lived near Manchester Square.

One even attempted to place an advert in the Times offering a proposal of marriage!"
