Last year, we moved to the lovely South Molton Street and ever since, we have been busy exploring the shops and eateries in our new area and we have found some gems! The street is as central in London as any one person could get and is very convenient to get to as it runs diagonally from Bond Street tube station straight into Mayfair. Being a stone’s throw away from the bustle of Oxford Street’s shopping mecca you are very close to all the action, and so it is surprising and refreshing that the street has a laid-back and relaxed feel to it. The street is wide and pedestrianised and lined with a mix of independent businesses with lots of surprises for all. Read on to discover what we have found so far in our forays down our street.
After leaving the bustle of Oxford street, you may be in need of a sit down for a coffee and pastry, and Caffe Concerto is just the place for a rest either sitting on the terrace or watching passersby from the comforts of the cosy interior. There is a nice buzz to the place and a large menu to choose from including delicious, vegan options. After recharging your batteries perhaps you will be ready for a wander around the shops on South Molton and where better to start than Space NK Apothecary. With all your much coveted beauty products available and a lot more to discover, there is nothing quite like a visit to this place. You can book in for a private consultation to really tailor your beauty regime to your own needs.
Feeling in need of a little sparkle? Cross the pedestrianised street to no 14 and stop in at hugely popular jewellery brand, Monica Vinander to treat yourself to something special from their latest collection or if you’re looking for a present, take advantage of their complimentary engraving service in store. A warning though, a visit here can leave you truly hooked on their beautiful range. After this, why not nip into Happy Socks, which have such an array of colourful socks that the store itself gives off a bright and joyful energy while still seeming really hip and trendy. We have popped into this store and purchased a few pairs already to add a fun touch to our ankles and it really lifts the spirits on these cold, winter days. Definitely worth a browse!
If you are in need of a little grooming, head over to Sassoon and get a a haircut in this legendary hair salon founded by Vidal Sassoon in the 60s. The team here are highly experienced and you can have a cut or colour and leave in style! Why don’t you top off your new pretty locks with a visit to Prima Lashes and get some enviable falsies at their store. Experts in eyelash extensions, this store is always booming with clientele so we’ll definitely be booking in to try them out.
We’ll check back in and update you with more locations as we try them! Let us know if you have any suggestions for places to go on the street. If you are in the neighbourhood, do come in and say hello, our new store, Les 100 Ciels is located at No 20 South Molton Street- we’d love to introduce you to our collection of soft cashmere clothing and lots more to try. Happy exploring!
