London, England is a special city — It’s a city with many different areas that can appeal to all tastes and interests. SoHo is a trendy area located in central London and is definitely a must see for anyone visiting the city.
London can be a very expensive city both to visit and live in, so finding a good meal for a reasonable price is always a plus. Flat Iron, a steakhouse on one of Soho’s hidden streets, is a “walk-ins only” gem.

From the cozy and lively environment which always sparks the introductions of new friends, to the low prices and small, carefully selected menu, this restaurant is a quirky London gem that most tourists wouldn’t be able to find on a guide to London’s best.
Right next to Flat Iron is the best coffee shop in London, Soho grind. With multiple locations Grind is a London coffee staple, but the Soho Grind has an edge due to its amazing coffee and incredible ambience, this is definitely the kind of coffee shop you want to sit in all day (if you can get a seat) and take Instagram worthy pictures in. If amazing coffee and a caffeine boost isn’t what you’re in the mood for, don’t you worry — they have a basement cocktail bar serving up the perfect drinks.
One of London’s coolest bars is located right in Soho’s Kingly court — Cahoots is an underground bar literally inspired by London’s underground (subway).
