Lisa Atkins, manager of Mimco boutique on Monmouth Street, shares her tips on the places that make Seven Dials special.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN SEVEN DIALS TO SHOP?
My favourite place in Seven Dials to shop is All Saints on Earlham Street. Influenced by the urban fashion world; it has an originality and uniqueness with great contemporary garments. The sister store further down – Bolongaro Trevor – also provides a great selection of one-off items with a rock & roll edge.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE EATERY OR WATERING HOLE IN SEVEN DIALS?
I unexpectedly come across a great little find while walking around the Covent Garden area with my partner one evening. We noticed a group of people walking down a flight of stairs and overcome with curiosity, we followed them to discover a lovely restaurant called Freud.
WHAT MAKES SEVEN DIALS SPECIAL FOR YOU?
Seven Dials has so much to offer, it's unique and special to everyone for different reasons. I love just walking around the cobbled roads in the evening and soaking up London life. As the streets start to light up and the bustling nightlife begins, Seven Dials builds up a great atmosphere which draws everyone to it.
