Central - 9/10 - The Vintage Guide To London
Entering Soho’s Secret Tea Room above the famous Coach & Horses pub is like stepping into a timecapsule from the Thirties.
Kettner’s is a must-visit in Soho, one of the oldest restaurants in London and steeped in old-school French charm.
Every 3rd Friday of the month, Tomas McGrath and Ethan Saunders are bringing a night of Sixties sound to Euston. Their Pork & Beans club night features guest DJs playing late Sixties soul and a bit of Northern/Crossover/Funk in the bar area with Tomas and Ethan playing their favourite club soul and mod jazz in the basement.
Drink, Shop & Do is a design shop and café bar just around the corner from King’s Cross station selling products from emerging designers alongside vintage furniture and home wares.
If you want to learn authentic Forties Lindy Hop – or Jitterbug as the dance is called in America – head to Swing Cats Corner. The dance club takes place every Tuesday and Thursday and boasts plenty of hot Swing, Jumpin’ Jive and Rhythm & Blues music and dancing until late.
