Kingly Street just behind Regent street is worth making a detour for. When you have done your big brands shopping spree, coming from Piccadilly Circus, you will find Kingly Street with a third of the number of tourists of the high street. And some lovely shops and restaurants for a nice afternoon.
For shops I can highly recommend ‘OTHER/Shop’ with a good collection for men with brands like Our Legacy, Japan’s bright young Kics Document, Sidian, Ersatz & Vanes, and many more. OTHER/shop womenswear brand staples include Boboutic, Christian Wijnants, Christophe Lemaire, Peter Jensen, and Stephan Schneider. They also hold an own exclusive collection; OTHER. Pass by the shop Dropdead where you can find T-shirts with controversial statements for your collection. And at the end of street Liberty, one of my favourite department stores, will welcome you with a carefully selected range of brands for clothing, cosmetics, interior design and the likes.
Of course you need a break for dinner or lunch and Kingly street has the perfect places for you. Try Cinnamon for great Indian food in a modern environment. For dinner at Cinnamon you might want to give them a call for reservations as it tends to get crowded. Or go to Shoryu and eat the best Japanese ramen in London. Shoryu is located at Kingly Court which is a quaint little court-yard just behind Kingly Street.
And if you have a sweet tooth, don’t forget to pass by Said. This coffee/ lunch bar serves the best chocolate and any desert you can think of with chocolate. The strawberries dipped in warm chocolate are the best and great when dying for an unhealthy snack;-)
