It used to be a prestigious street w tradition and million untold stories of iconic fashionistas , celebrities, poets , writers, artists, politicians and aristocrats ... now featuring low end shopping.

Good shopping as well as great quirky bars. Plenty of places to eat and plenty of choice. Crossing the road can be a bit difficult

not worth the walk unless you are bar hopping, so i walked during the day and most places were closed and the street was pretty dead, so i think it gets better if you are looking to bar hop at night.
