Very Good bar, with nice atmosphere. It has Italian characteristics and fine music too. You should definitely try Bloody Mary and Termini Spritz.

and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
