Three Blind Mice Bar (closed), Shoreditch (Bar)
“Absolutely brilliant - friendliest bar ever, had a chat with the barman, the owner, the DJ and someone who had just wandered in and asked if they could pull up a chair and join us. Its a little scruffy, the guinness is 7% and the tunes are gooood (bit of reggae, soul)! Now that is what I want from a boozer!”

Picture of ScooterCaffe, Waterloo, London

ScooterCaffe, Waterloo (Bar)
“This is my go-to place when I am trying to show off my London knowledge because no one has ever heard of it but once there love it! The staff always seem like they have stepped out of the 60s, complete with stripy tops and bouffant hair. There is always someone tapping away at a laptop (presumably writing a novel or a short thesis on representations of gender in post-modern chillean literature). Basically its just really cool. Enjoy”
