Colourful, vibrant, electric – Soho is an area bursting with nightlife and eateries yet has a strong community spirit that keeps drawing people to live here.
Its infamous history is hard to ignore, yet over the years it has grown to become a destination that is known for its innovation and creativity.
Your neighbours will more than likely be young professionals, those who work in the City, or in media, but everyone looks out for one another here.
Another draw is its central location – transport links can be found on virtually every corner, which benefits anyone who needs to commute around the city.
As the night draws in, the city comes alive; whether you’re looking for a craft ale or a high end cocktail, Soho offers you it all and more. The Grade II listed pub The French House is iconic in the area and great if you want to simply chat, with their no TV and no mobile phone policy – how refreshing! For something completely different, try Cahoots, a vintage 1940s themed bar on the underground – but make sure you book.
We highly recommend you try the Blue Turtle Trail at Carnaby – each of the pubs, cafes, bars and restaurants on the trail have committed to protect the ocean. When you make Soho your home, you will have plenty of time to work your way around the trail and sample what’s on offer. Located in an 18th century townhouse, our team recommend Mildreds for its vegetarian and vegan menu, or head to Bob Bob Ricard for a luxurious evening indulging in English and Russian classics. Ham Yard Hotel is certainly something different, revolving around a garden within a unique miniature village complete with its own bowling alley, its interior is to be admired.
Soho has a strong artistic presence, with around a fifth of creative industries being housed here, as well as a strong film presence. It’s home to the legendary Ronnie Scott’s, The 100 Club, and G-A-Y, and West End venues such as Queen’s Theatre, Prince Edward Theatre and London Palladium can be found here. For comedy, Soho Theatre has a fantastic and varied programme.
Don’t underestimate what Soho can offer you as a home.
