Here’s a fact for you: it’s impossible for a shopping district that’s born out of what was once a Victorian coal depot to be anything other than ultra cool and trendy. Worlds away from your standard Westfield (much as we love the multiplex), the list of stores, bars and restaurants in Coal Drops Yard is pretty alternative. Of the shops, some, you may know - Aesop, Cos, Paul Smith - but most will be completely new (and also your new obsession), such as LA label Twiin and mensware bouqitue Universal Works. On the food and drink front you’ll find a new outpost for the trusty tapas restaurant Barrafina nestled among edgy new eateries and concept bars. Check out El Pastor for tacos and Bodega Rita's for deli food inspired by the corner stores of NYC.
