Where to Watch the World Cup in London?
Whether you’re a die-hard football fan or you’re being dragged along kicking and screaming, we have compiled a list of the best venues to watch the action unfold in style. Please click here.
Restaurant News – Galvin Cafe a Vin
Under the same roof as their fine dining restaurant, La Chapelle, but with a separate entrance, Cafe a Vin is open from 8am to 10:30pm and is the ideal venue for a relaxed breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The cafe was recently re-launched as Cafe a Vin to reflect the focus on their wine list in response to the increasing demand for natural and biodynamic wines. With summer upon us, lunch or dinner in the Cafe’s outdoor terrace overlooking Bishops Square or the Cigar Terrace connected to the aperitivo bar, is an excellent idea.
Restaurant News – The Lonsdale
The Lonsdale in Notting Hill, which already has a great reputation for cocktails, will re-launch as a bar and steak house in June. Designed by the internationally recognised interior designers ‘Dtwo’, the 250 capacity venue combines an elegant décor with an extensive cocktail, wine and food menu.
The restaurant, which has a seating capacity of 60, will offer a comprehensive steakhouse menu, sourced from Allens of Mayfair. For further information visit www.thelonsdale.co.uk or to make a reservation please contact us.
