Best For Live Music
Roundhouse is hands down an amazing venue with an eclectic mix of world class acts. Live music wise some past performers have been a fantastic range of Folk, Rock, Alternative, Electronic and popular.
They also recently hosed the itunes awards which saw Justin Timberlake. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, Bastille, The Arctic Monkeys and Tinie Tempah all perform.
But don't be put off by the size of the acts Roundhouse is still beautiful and intimate venue.
Best For Theatre
Multiple productions have premièred in the Hampstead Theatre and then transferred to the west end and sometimes theatres worldwide.
Some of the writers in the past who have been nurtured by the Theatre include Brian Friel, Harold Pinter ,Mike Leigh and Sheilagh Stevenson.
Best For Cinema
But the Jewel in the Crown is The Everyman. The Everyman is a luxury art house Cinema(with the occasional popular movie). While you sit in absolute comfort in their gigantic seats(some of the screens have love seats) you have your own waiter and waitress to care for your every need.
There are also regular cultural events from Opera to questions and answers with the directors and writers of some of the presentations.
Best For Special Occasions
Odettes in Primrose Hill is our top choice for special celebrations, its a truly beautiful restaurant in an equally lovely just across from this stunning London Park.
Odette’s Restaurant is set amongst a parade of mid-Victorian shops and cafes just across from the world famous park. It is one of London’s original dining rooms, having opened in 1978. It is still an acclaimed restaurant now owned by Welsh chef Bryn Williams.
Hailing from Denbigh in North Wales, Bryn Williams learnt to appreciate food and its origins from an early age. He would go shooting and fishing with his father and uncle and worked in his local bakery learning the trade; from this point Bryn knew that cooking was integral to his future.
He has worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens in London. In 1997 he began work under Marco Pierre White at The Criterion, went on to work under Michel Roux at Le Gavroche for three years, was senior-sous at The Orrery for four years and then moved to open Galvin at Windows with Chris Galvin, before opening Odette’s for Vince Power in 2006. Bryn is now the Chef Patron of Odette’s, taking over the property in October 2008.
We highly recommend Odettes for a special occasion. There is a truly lovely atmosphere in an equally beautiful setting. The food is melt in your mouth modern British cuisine with only the finest ingredients sourced throughout the British Isles.
Lunch and dinner is served Monday to Sunday in the Odette’s split level dining room, walled garden and outdoor terraced seating area. From January 2014 there will be an additional private dining room and a "chefs table". We are so excited!
