Marylebone, tucked away behind the often nightmarish Oxford Street, often flies under the radar. Yet visitors to the area will be treated to a charming neighbourhood full of elegantly relaxed vibes and a string of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to explore...

Where To Eat & Drink
Offering a truly authentic taste of Italy in the heart of Marylebone Village, The Italians ethos is to provide customers with the best produce that Italy has to offer. Their produce is made fresh on a daily basis, and the short yet refined menu features highlights such as the bruschetta ‘nduja and burrata, and the porchetta Toscana with truffle mayo. The venue attracts a loyal crowd from the local area, and the buzzing atmosphere combined with the extensive wine list makes this a great location for a light lunch, or Friday evening drinks.
Address: 27B Devonshire Street W1G 6PW
For an evening of sophistication, head to 108 Brasserie. Standing proudly upon the cobbled street of Marylebone Lane, the venue boasts a large alfresco terrace, perfect for sipping a G&T on a late summer’s evening, as well as an impressive main dining area. The menu focuses on modern British cuisine in an elevated environment, and highlights include the whole Dover sole and the selection of black angus grass fed steaks. Fussy patrons stand little chance against the restaurant's extensive and varied menu, and there’s also an impressive cocktail list to boot.

The Coachmakers Arms
From the exterior, The Coachmakers Arms looks not dissimilar to a standard London pub, but don’t let that fool you. If you head down the stairs, you’ll enter a noticeably plush cocktail bar reminiscent of a 1920’s speakeasy. Drinks are created to celebrate the ‘conviviality and kinship of clubhouses the land over’, and include lesser known sips such as the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, and there’s a great range of craft beers available, too. A night here could easily be spent talking away to the knowledgeable bartenders who, if you’re lucky, might just make you your very own, individually tailored cocktail, made specifically to your taste.

Founded in 1990 and housed on an Edwardian premises, Daunt Books is widely recognised as one of London’s most beautiful bookstores. This place does things a little differently to the likes of other book stores in the city, organising their books by country, rather than genre, for a truly unique browsing experience. Whether you’re into fantasy, history or anything (and everything) in between, you’ll surely find something of interest here, as well as interiors that could be something out of a Harry Potter novel.
