We asked Amanda Fairservice for her favourite places near Publicis UK.
Amanda, where is the Best Place to grab a coffee and why?
Good choice of coffee shops on Baker Street – two Starbucks, a Costa and Prêt – all within walking distance
And where is the Best Place to grab a pint/glass of vino? Why?
For some reason, those at Publicis can only make it to two pubs; The Barley Mow (old man’s pub but it does have 2 booths with doors so you’re all closed in and everything!), and the Bok Bar (does a good Thai). There are however, loads of pubs and bars, I just don’t get to see them!
In your opinion, where is the Best Place to have a sit down lunch?
And the Best Place to have a sandwich/wrap?
There are so many, I couldn’t choose!
Top places to shop?
Selfridges is just a hop and skip away, nuff said!
And lastly, what is the Best Place for a big night out?
Purl looks good for a girl’s night out, have yet to try it out though.
