At least according to the Summer Issue of LondonBridge magazine - only bit of post I got this morning!
Laid-back Bermondsey Street is fast becoming one of 'the' places to be seen in London. Some uber-cool shops have opened in-between the bars and bistros, including Terra Plana, Cockfighter and 167 Bermondsey Street.
And there was I thinking that if you weren't seen in Newcomen Street you were nobody.
Don't worry, I'm sure "trendiest" isn't the highest accolade.
Indeed, maybe if you don't live on the trendiest street, it's possible to find cafes, laundrettes, dry cleaners, pubs without over-priced drinks, dentists, doctors and other such useful services. Trendy places are not always places that serve many interests.
well to be truly trendy you need a quality deli that serves breakfast till late at weekends, a wine bar with a lengthy champagne list, a fabulous hairdressers, a groovy bookshop that isnt called borders or books etc, an organic fruit and veg shop that only sells in season local produce and does juices to go, a butcher that sells home made sausages and a florist that looks like a courtyard garden. there would also be 2 gay bars a post office and an art-house cinema. oh and there has to be oddbins
where is this nirvana in se1???
That's it then - I am going to have to move out if SE1 is becoming 'trendy'! Here was me thinking SE1 was about a great social, racial and economic mix with space for everyone, not just the trendy Location, Location set. I'm gutted!
