Charlotte Street, Goodge Street and the surrounding streets provide a smorgasbord of great eats, pubs and cafes.
The Charlotte Street Hotel is a great spot for brunch or afternoon tea and has one of the most charming cocktail bars in London.
The Riding House Cafe is fantastic, with secluded areas for private dining or a grand candelabra-lit communal dining table for those bigger events. Not hungry? Just pay a visit to the buzzing bar, enjoy the drinks and soak up the ambience. From Sunday roasts to fancy cocktail evenings, it has everything and is a great spot to hunker down and watch the people of Fitzrovia pass by.
Berners Tavern, inside the London Edition Hotel, is a sight and experience to behold. The welcome, the service and the ambience do not disappoint and the food is just wonderful. Have a quick look online if you’re not sure – how can you resist that dining room?
The Palms of Goa is a gorgeous slice of India in Fitzrovia, offering tasty, authentic south Indian food at fantastic prices. The fish & non-veg thalis are a stand-out, and the many pubs and bars surrounding the restaurant are perfect to build up a good appetite beforehand.
Fancy a cup of coffee in a toilet? Of course you do. The Attendant Coffee Bar is a renovated Victorian gentleman’s toilet. It’s very chic, very cool, and whilst enjoying your breakfast and savouring the good coffee you can spend your time wondering which famous Fitzrovia artists used to come in here and… well, you get the picture.
You know those moments where you really fancy enjoying a hot dog alongside a glass of deliciously chilled champagne? You do? Well, Bubbledogs is here for you. Combining gourmet hot dogs with great bubbles, prepare to be sucked in by this wholly original and very fun eatery.
The Fitzroy Tavern pub. This is where it all started in 1887. Pull up a bar stool and raise a glass or two to Dylan Thomas and George Orwell.
