Having spent the last 11 years living and breathing only in SE1 ... I am meeting best friend (from out of town) around Oxford Circus tonight and need to impress her with a cool bar or two plus a cheapish but yummy place to eat ...

I know you won't let me down!

(And Ivanhoe, if you are still running your scooter taxi company, I'll need collecting at approx 11.30)

Sorry Julie. Need to pass my test first. Got a retest booked for next Friday, so any time after that (if I pass).

I could help you with directions to Oxford St though?

[hope you have a nice evening. sorry I've got no sensible suggestions]

...if you press it, they will come.

How about Circus on Golden Square? Cool bar with cocktails a plenty and a restaurant which doesn't break the bank.

Oooh I was at Circus on Tuesday night at a party in the basement, and as I was leaving there was a terrible smell of burning and next thing everyone was evacuated and fire engines turned up. Apparently something went wrong with the lights....

Apart from that though its a really nice bar, although I've never eaten in the restaurant.

Atlantic Bar & Grill, Glasshouse St. It's just brilliant.

How about cool-ish bar and not-too-expensive place to eat rolled into one ?

Matchbar on Margaret Street or Marketplace on [guess where] Market Place (off Great Castle Street).

Matchbar is cocktails and big bowls of [imho] really nice food to share and Market Place is more vodka mixers and South American bites like boccatas.

I have no connection etc etc...

for drinks - what about milk and honey on poland st - you need to book though look on their website at and for eating you can't beat mildred's on lexington st for cheap and delicious. It's veggie, but not too super healthy, they have lots of choice of very yummmy and filling food, nice organic wine and beers and unlike milk and honey, you can't book, but the wait isn't normally too long.

There's also bodeans, an deep south style barbeque place on poland st which is fun and cheap.

I'd also recommend market place for drinking, but on a day like today it will be packed to the gills with local suits...round the corner on little portland st is the social (good for drinking) and next to that is a sausage place called stanley(i think) also cheap and good food.

Have fun

I agree with Hat, Milk and Honey is very nice, strongly recommended!
