Crossley Street

There's great comfort to be had in knowing places like Crossley Steet still exist, with the venerable Pellegrini's a timeless tenant and in every other niche reliable occupants to ply everything from bespoke shirts to vintage curios.


Orientate yourself over an espresso from Pellegrini's with a watermelon granita chaser. If you can see Paperback Books opposite, you're in the right place.


A rare treat for shoppers is that both sexes are catered for on Crossley Street. Fancy fellas can Collar Charles Edward, Master Shirtmaker or C. Maimone Tailor for some tailored threads, and get a no-nonsense short back n' sides from Windsor Hair Salon. Ladies can browse designer dresses at Blonde Venus, drool over jewellery at Gallery Funaki and dive into De Mille to get lost among Art Deco lamps, antique toys, sixties figurines and bakelite.


Now you're probably ready for a classic cocktail prepared by an approachable bartender. Squeeze into Romeo Lane, greet the neighbour whose knee you're practically perching on and choose something from the snacks menu. Now you'll need to decide if you're in the mood for award-winning fine dining, wholesome pasta or modern Asian street food, dripping with style.
