SOHO

Soho, the fashion mecca and epicentre of the swinging sixties has always maintained its own unique identity. During the 00’s ‘cool’ appeared to have moved East, but Soho got its mojo back and regained its crown as London’s coolest district.

Very much the original ‘urban village’ with a very real sense of community, the plethora of fantastic restaurants, fashion boutiques, bars & cafes serve the local creative/media crowd and long-standing loyal residents who give the area its unique buzz.

When is a curry house not a curry house? When its Dishoom of course! We love the groovy interior thats a nod to Carnabys 60s heyday
Barrafina | 54 Frith Street W1D 4SL
Awesome, authentic Spanish tapas from the guys behind Fino. Inspired by the legendary Cal Pepe in Barcelona (one of TB_HQs all time favourite places).

Great food in a relaxed setting, for us Jason Atherton and Paul Hood have got it spot on with SEH, cosy and unpretentious with great service, perfect for Soho
DRINK
Bar Termini | 7 Old Compton Street W1D 5JE
A fantastic Italianite bar with the dream team of cocktail supremo Tony Conigliaro (formerly of the Zetter Townhouse) and coffee king Marco Arrigo (worldwide head quality at Illy) of at the helm, so expect liquid magic...
