Unique Places for Food and Drink in London by Stephs World

Unique Places for Food and Drink in London

This is my second part to my London Diary. This part will discuss the unique places for food and drink in London that I found that Bank Holiday Weekend, and fell in love with. Some of these are going to be places I visit again and again.

If you want to see my other post all about London on a Shoestring: 10 Things To Look Out for in London, please head over there after.

Restaurants

The Piano Works
We pre-booked to visit the Piano Works a few weeks before we went to London after doing the general “cool places to eat in London” google search.
The Piano Works was a £25 booking deposit, but I can say that we had a brilliant night. The menu isn’t extensive and can be a little pricey, but the atmosphere was amazing.
There are 2 pianists/singers on a stage in the middle of the room and they will play what the audience want to hear. One of the songs we requested was Phil Collins – In The Air Tonight and the pianist said he would save that song until the full band come on. Let me tell you, it was AMAZING!

The Breakfast Club
Named after the Cult Classic film, The Breakfast Club was only a walk away from Spitalfields Market and a unique experience. The waitresses were cool, the decorations were cool and they even had a Smeg fridge which is actually a doorway for staff.
The tip is to get to The Breakfast Club early though as the queue can be around the block by 10am.

Markets

Brick Lane Food Stalls (Ely’s Yard & Backyard Market)

Brick Lane is a new up and coming area for London, with it’s very newly created Ely’s Yard. It has little food vans from Pizza-Mexican-American. Very yummy and they even had a pop-up Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream which was giving away free Cookie Dough Ice Cream – yummy yummy!

Spitalfields Market

Spitalfields Market was a great place for food & drink in London. There is anything from Poppies award winning Fish & Chips-Burgers-Snacks. The food was reasonably priced for London and the atmosphere was calm and away from the hustle and bustle of London City even on a Bank Holiday Weekend.

Bars

Bars by Tower Bridge

Overlooking Tower Bridge, you can find a row of bars (heading down to HMS Belfast) fitted with deck chairs. Very relaxing overlooking Tower Bridge. Also, it’s a great place to do some people-watching while people are trying to get that perfect selfie with Tower Bridge in the background.

Euston Tap

This little Victorian Gatehouse was a nice little place to stop by for a quick drink before getting our train back home. It is located a minute walk from Euston Train Station and houses lots of ales, ciders, craft beers and soft drinks. The little seating outside can get quite busy, but we was lucky to find a table to relax after a busy weekend in London.

Ugh we never have good timing with visiting markets due to working during the day and weekends always being busy, but we love them, without a doubt there’s always something for everyone!
