Outings in Soho: The Neighbourhood Keeps it Exciting!
Where to go in Soho
Soho is a small neighbourhood with an eclectic soul. It has come a long way from its rowdy past but part of its appeal is its history of brothels, unlicensed drinking and gambling dens, and previously scruffy residents! If you peel off the pristine surface, you will find the area’s scandalous past lingers on discreetly. But if you’re looking at properties to rent in Soho for all its modern conveniences, you won’t be disappointed.
The neighbourhood is buzzing with restaurants, theatres, clubs and bars. Fancy Indian biryani? Wardour Street is home to Dum Biryani. For biryani in a different style, head to Darjeeling Express on Carnaby Street. Craving Italian? Grab delicious pizza and antipasti at Soho Joe or a hearty meal of grouse, rabbit and pork agnoli at Pastaio followed by authentic, super fresh gelato in choice of unique flavours at Gelupo on Archer Street.
Where to go in Soho? Want to hit a bar with friends on a Friday evening? Milk & Honey is stylish, cosy and intimate – just the place to relax with a cocktail customized to your unique tastes. Take your partner to Disrepute, whose name belies its glamorous 60s-inspired décor, exotic cocktails and an interesting menu written in the form of short stories with happy endings!
Another reason to check out properties to buy in Soho over other neighbourhoods! You can always enjoy a drink at a quality pub not far from your home. Guinness lovers flock to the Toucan, beer fans can be spotted at De Hems and young office-goers frequent Sun & Thirteen Cantons, complete with leather banquettes and a basement DJ bar. The Tea Room below café Bun House on Greek Street and Opium in Chinatown pay homage to Soho’s speakeasies while Dirty Harry’s classic rock, rambunctious crowd and excellent beers may just cure you of your raging headache!
Soho’s only estate agent, Greater London Properties may have already pointed you to the amazing shopping opportunities in the area. Though Oxford Street is the most recognizable name, Carnaby Street, Kingly Court and Berwick Street have a fabulous selection of independent fashion boutiques. If you don’t feel up to the busy traffic in Oxford Street, Carnaby’s pedestrianised zone delivers a quiet and carefree shopping experience.
Hopefully this gives you a few ideas on where to go in Soho – whether you enjoy bars, pubs or clubs – there is something for everyone!
