We love Bar Italia for its 24hour chic and retro style. Famous for late night expresso and morning cappuccino. The best of Soho and a must for every visitor to experience this historic cafe bar.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
