It was really hard, but I finally found it!! You know that I am organizing a great artful guide from Buenos Aires (please, keep checking for more tips _ Coming soon: Recoleta and Where to stay in BsAs). Here is a GREAT tip for who is travelling to or living in London! The blog is called Great Little Place and it gives incredible tips of unknown bars, restaurants, cultural places, so on. You should check it!
Lounge Lover, No. 1 Whitby Street, Shoreditch, E1 6JU
Minimalist this is not. It’s a miscellany of weird and wonderful objects of all shapes and sizes. But let’s cut to the chase: decadent cocktails in decadent surroundings. Not cheap, but truly immense.
Three Blind Mice, 5 Ravey Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 4QW
Round the corner from Book Club, this cosy basement bar is a self-proclaimed ‘unique little den of iniquity’. Incense burning from the air con vents. Peeling posters from the world over. Shabby seats. Chic this place is not. Beer is not this bar’s forte either unless you’re after a can of Red Stripe. However, it does serve up a devilish selection of spirits and is a charming little treasure. It’s so good in fact that we’re going to host our own event here on 8th July so watch this space.
Doodle Bar, 33 Parkgate Road, Battersea, SW11 4NP
This place is white. But with scribbling, doodles and drawings all over the walls. Like playschool but for kidults. There’s a lovely outside area with table tennis, patio heaters and a little balcony overlooking a dock by the Thames. It’s an events-only café though so it’s not open all the time. Call them up beforehand to make sure it’s open before you mosey on down: 0207 502 8167.
One last plea before you go, please help out a Camberwell community project by joining their facebook group. They need your help to create a cultural/arts centre in the area: http://bit.ly/aZ6Wi0.
I know that this is not totally an art topic, but it is a cultural topic that I thought you guys could enjoy!
