The ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme may have come to a close last month but London’s hospitality scene is coming back stronger than ever. New openings and re-openings are being announced weekly – proving once again that the city and its residents are defiant in the face of adversity.
Hotels, restaurants and bars are thriving across the capital – we take a look at the venues to look forward to for your next outing:
Cha Cha x Sister Jane
Cult favourite restaurant pop up Cha Cha has joined forces with cult favourite fashion brand Sister Jane to produce a Latin American restaurant and bar in Notting Hill that oozes cool. Serving a beautiful combination of Latin American and Mediterranean cuisine devised by the ex Global Exec Chef of Zuma and Sketch, Anthony Garlando, this promises to be the new West London hangout.
The restaurant is set across two floors, with the main bar and dining on the ground floor and a secret garden and fire pit on the lower ground. Those that venture up to the first floor will find treated to a beautifully laid out boutique for Sister Jane and a large rooftop bar area.
Perch yourself at the bar for a Cha Cha Margarita and indulge in a ceviche and braised beef cachaca or join for brunch on the terrace. A perfect way to shake the 2020 blues.

From the team that brought you Sumosan Twiga and Crazy Pizza Monte Carlo comes the funnest new restaurant in the capital. Nestled on a side street in Marylebone, this new CP outpost contains all the hallmarks of the Billionaire Group, buzzing atmosphere, beautiful people and delicious food. Try the truffle pizza and wash it down with an Italian Barolo from the venue’s impressive cellars or a perfectly made vodka martini.
