This shop-cum-gaming space comes from Fnatic, a leading esports organisation with professional teams competing in video games competitions across the world. Confused? Well, attempting to turn esports a bit more mainstream is one of the reasons why they've set up Bunkr. You can purchase branded merchandise (from clothing to computer hardware), games set up for visitors to play and there's a virtual reality system in store too, plus presumably loads of info on the brand and what they're up to. You can also hire the whole place out for private events, whereby they'll open up the on-site bar for you and your group.
Venue says: “We are London's first ever esports concept store! Come over and shop, hang out, game, use virtual reality and discover esports!”
Fancy dress shops
Halloween, New Year, or just popping out to one of the clubs in London, social occasions are at least twice as fun when there's fancy dress involved. Cast off your going out uniform and switch it for, say, a 1920s flapper dress. Or perhaps an Elizabethan doublet. In these top-notch fancy dress shops you can give yourself a giant wound, try on terrifying masks, and get involved in full character outfits. Choosing your ideal alter-ego will be the only dilemma... RECOMMENDED: Read our full Halloween in London guide if you're looking for a spooky outfit
