Legal eagles occupy Chancery Lane, as they have done for centuries, while for many decades, Fleet Street was home to Britain’s top newspaper publishers. Nowadays, there are more lawyers than journos in Fleet Street, and like much of the City district, this is a smart, fast-paced, interesting part of London. You’ll have plenty of choice with restaurants in Chancery Lane, as it, like the rest of the City of London, is home to some very fine places to eat.
The City is a great place to stroll around and take in the sights, so after all that exploring you’ll need a place to rest your weary pins and enjoy some top nosh. For starters, how about Grappolo? Serving modern Italian fare, this restaurant has a warm, cosy ambience. The wine list is great too, featuring a selection of interesting Italian bottles alongside bold international choices.
Now for something completely different. If vintage glamour is your bag, have a peep at Volupté, a traditional supper club with live music, cabaret, and burlesque performances. Mains include great modern European treats like fried scallops with parsley and ginger cream and radicchio salad. For a true vintage experience, try the popular afternoon tea.
