This unusual mash-up of influences describes itself rather mysteriously as a “lifestyle space”. It takes the form of a restaurant serving traditional Korean food, a cafe/bakery offering fresh coffee and pastries, and a 1950s-inspired hair salon all wrapped into one. The concept is an experiment by stylist and director Ki Lee, who has since expanded the hairdressing business to a small chain, but the cafe keeps evolving too and is well worth a visit.
Offering an unusual concept, this Russian cafe provides unlimited cups of tea as well as biscuits for customers no matter how long they stay – you just pay for the time you’re there. The fee is only a few pence per minute so you can pay hardly anything for a quick drink, and even if you stay for an hour or two you’re only spending a few pounds.
