You can now sit down inside and eat at your favourite restaurants, bars and cafés.
Carnaby and Soho are open and welcoming you back inside to their four walls of a cosy atmosphere. So forget trying to huddle underneath those outdoor heaters and enjoy the cosy indoor dining experience you've all been waiting for at London’s most iconic destinations for dining, drinking and shopping.
With an ample amount of indoor spots to enjoy, Carnaby’s iconic Kingly Court is the go-to place to enjoy a wide variety of cuisines; the three-storey covered courtyard houses over 20 restaurants, bars and café’s with outdoor heaters, perfect for all weather.
Imad’s Syrian Kitchen opens its doors on the second floor of Kingly Court, in their new permanent home. Book a table to enjoy a taste of Imad’s home of Syria. On the menu is a selection of Imad’s well-known mezze dishes.
Carnaby’s very own underground themed bar Cahoots invites scoundrels back for a taste of their innovative cocktails and snacks taking visitors back to the 1940s. Book the new ‘Tipples and Treats’ experience and enjoy two cocktails and a piece of cake exclusively on Mondays.
Kolamba’s Sri Lankan home-style dishes are perfect for a lunch-time treat and great for sharing. The Ceylon Chicken Curry is punchy and tangy and must be accompanied by a fluffy portion of basmati rice and a pol roti.
Dedicated to cooking the freshest and crispest dumplings, Ugly Dumpling is a firm favourite. Join them indoors (or alfresco still!) for a taste of their limited edition Lamb and Harissa dumplings with a side of sweet fried tempura aubergine. Don’t miss their lunchtime deal including a portion of noodles and your choice of five dumplings.
Polpo has reopened its doors and offers infamous Venetian inspired small plates. They reopen with some mouthwatering new dishes on the menu such as the Sardines with salsa verde and the artichoke, ricotta and mint pizzetta.
For wine lovers, visit Antidote’s intimate Newburgh Street wine bar, the trailblazers in the natural wine movement have been dedicated to celebrating organic, low intervention and biodynamic wines. A new addition, they have just welcomed a selection of the Cosmic Cellar wines to their shelves.
Don't forget, if grabbing a spot indoors is out of reach, outdoor dining continues in both Carnaby and Soho thanks to the 30 brightly coloured tables set up on Carnaby Street, Newburgh Street and Ganton Street for communal dining every day of the week. There are over 200 seats to enjoy from 11am to 10pm, where shoppers can enjoy a takeaway meal without a booking. This flexible, accessible dining culture captures the spirit of Soho and Carnaby: grab a take-away from wherever you fancy and gather with up to 6 friends for that long-awaited reunion.
