Our Lovely Neighbours

We are very lucky to share our local vicinity with some other excellent independant retailers, cafés and bars, and would highly recommend you visit our particular favourites if you are in the area:

Albion (formally Bin Ends) Wine

To say we frequent this treasure trove of a wine shop is a bit of an understatement. We should probably have shares in it. Specialists in Spanish and other under represented wines, they have a great mix of bottles for under a tenner and the type you have to dust off the label to read.

4th Floor

This hip, yet very friendly hair salon is housed in the most enviable ex-industrial space with an amazing roof terrace. We might squat it if they’re not careful. 4th Floor also have their own range of hair product that's housed in cutting edge packaging designed by North.

A. France

The oldest funeral director in London. They buried Lord Nelson no less, and have a very engaging window display. Located directly opposite Darkroom, we've developed a morbid fascination with the deliveries and daily goings on there…

Ben Pentreath

Based in a beautiful tiny Victorian shopfront on Rugby Street, Ben Pentreath's shop is crammed with a beautifully curated array of interior products and curiosities with an architectural slant. Check out the plaster moulds that Ben's architecture practice specialises in… it's like a miniature Sir John Soanes museum.

Espresso Rooms

The best coffee around — it really is! Queue up with the doctors and nurses of Great Ormond Street Hospital and marvel at how the staff remember everybody's usual coffee request. Get there early to bag one of their well-designed and rather filling sandwiches too.

Folk

Thoughtfully crafted mens and womenswear housed in two seperate, almost adjacent shops [each with a lovely shop fit]. Both shops are run by the nicest staff you could ask for. The Darkroom ladies are invariably wearing Folk shoes, and the Folk ladies are invariably wearing Darkroom jewellery…

Oliver Spencer

One of the stalwarts of Lamb's Conduit Street, with a recently opened 2nd shop, Oliver Spencer makes and sells classic modern clothing. With our eye for a detail, we particularly like his vintage shop fittings and the primary coloured enameled buckles he uses on his belts — an idea we wished we'd thought of!

The Peoples Supermarket

A sustainable supermarket with high social values and a varied and inspiring selection of seasonal produce. Their fruit and vegetable section is particularly well stocked with rare breed tomatoes and fancy things like samphire, without a shocking price tag.

Persphone Books

Persephone Books reprints neglected classics by C20th (mostly women) writers. Each one of their collection of 98 books is intelligent, thought-provoking, beautifully written and comes with a beautiful sleeve design.

Schuller Opticians

We always admire their artistic window displays and their bespoke wrought iron door. Schuller's customers travel from all over London — a pretty good sign!

Vats Wine Bar

We hold this unashamedly dated restaurant dear to our hearts as it feels like somewhere your parents have been eating for most of their lives. With classics such as the 'Beaujolis Breakfast', and a randomly, rather good 'Winston's Jerk Chicken', what's not to love?
