Have visited this place multiple times to do some afternoon shopping and am always amazed by the lovely stock of drinks and cakes at the bar, amazing service and the beautiful clothes. Have also really enjoyed the comedy night here too on the last night of the month. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for an eccentric, unique night/afternoon out.

Posted: Wed Jun 6 2012
Although this vintage treasure trove for retro finds has been around for four years, it’s still lies undiscovered by many. Perhaps they’ve missed it because it resides on a street crammed with bars rather than boutiques. So it makes sense that owner Hannah Turner Voakes has recently been granted a license for an in-shop bar from which she serves delicious iced coffees, Belgian beers and other tantalising boozy beverages. The spacious shop offers women’s and men’s clothing and accessories from the ‘20s to the ‘80s. There’s a particularly good selection of flowery summer dresses at £30, and a fair range of shoes, handbags and gloves displayed on mismatched, kitsch sofas, chairs and tables. On Saturdays, the boutique runs a cheap alteration service, vintage make-up and hair styling in store. By night the shop window becomes a stage, with regular events featuring bands, DJs and dancers.
