We’re all about championing the people, communities and businesses that make London such an incredible city. And that’s just one of the reasons why we’ve created this hub dedicated to some of the Black-owned businesses we love, in partnership with Google. In light of lockdown 2.0, it's more essential than ever to continue to support your favourite local businesses, whether that's by ordering online, picking up a takeaway, showing your love for them on social media or leaving a Google review. 

Here you’ll find everything from profiles of business owners and write-ups on our favourite places to a very cool interview with Ashley Walters – the guest editor of our latest mag dedicated to Black-owned businesses. We think you’ll like it.
