Make like the buzzy, arty Notting Hill crowd and saunter down to the eccentrically cool Elgin. Boasting more than a few bold patterns, enormous mirrors and bountiful artworks, this a creatively friendly place indeed. And as a rather bohemian boozer, naturally live music is a major part of its character. Cider, ales, beers and Bloody Marys jostle for attention. It's all rather brilliant really.
