Side Hustle


Now Open

Side Hustle, a stylish classic British pub, is coming to Covent Garden. But this ain't any old boozer. Located within a Grade II-listed former magistrates' court, where Oscar Wilde and Emmeline Pankhurst once stood trial, the watering hole is just one of the many food and drink offerings available at the internationally-acclaimed NoMad London.

Having gained fame in New York, LA and Los Angeles, the boutique hotel is now setting up shop in our city and promises to be just as popular with diners, imbibers, and guests alike. Not only does it boast a number of original architectural features, but the place houses an on-site museum showcasing the history of the building through a number of rotating exhibitions. 

Side Hustle offers guests a laid-back atmosphere with dark wooden furnishings, rich hues and comfy booths to relax on. In the kitchen, you'll find Ashley Abodeely cooking up a storm. As the former executive sous chef at NoMad's capital, she is putting her own take on traditional dishes. And to drink? Expect a number of potent cocktails made using Europe's best agave-based spirits, shaken by award-winning mixologists. Alongside the punter palace, there's also a stunning atrium restaurant with foliage and seasonal cocktails, as well as Common Decency, a sleek basement bar and the Library, an exclusive drinking lounge for those staying.
