Bermondsey Square, Tower Bridge Road
According to Time Out magazine, If we were giving out awards for cool streets, the gong for funkiest newcomer would be scooped by SE1s Bermondsey Street. When the Bermondsey Square Hotel and Alfies Kitchen open in April 2009 - as the focal point of a complete regeneration of Bermondsey Square - its going to get cooler still. Should I stay, or should I go? You should go and stay.
Definitely. Bermondsey is one of Londons most happening areas, with great galleries, boutiques, bars and restaurants, all within a stones throw of the City, the London Eye, Shakespeares Globe and TATE Modern amongst other attractions.The Bermondsey Square Hotel (or b2 as we call it) is a stylish Bespoke Hotel, with 79 designer bedrooms including a series of loft rooms looking out over the London skyline. The revitalised Square will also feature an independent cinema, antiques market, chic flats and brand new office space.
So, Alfies Kitchen? Whats it all about? Alfies Kitchen is a place to graze, gaze and laze. A bar, bistro, wine shop and deli, serving fresh English dishes. A new addition to Bermondsey's burgeoning reputation as the place to play.
As the 60's legend himself would say, Anyone in the mood for a little Alfie, straight up?
