Spot the purple clock!

Join us on a journey through St Christopher’s Place, the home of the Les 100 Ciels flagship store. Tucked away from the crowds of Oxford Street, you find an eclectic collection of independent boutiques, bars and restaurants. With its pedestrianised streets and unique charm, St. Christopher’s Place is perfect for shopping and dining in true cosmopolitan style.

We cannot help but stop by each shop window on the way to our store and be amazed by the beauty of the street itself. Located just behind Bond Street, you can explore the picturesque pedestrianised streets, where Victorian charm sits in harmony with contemporary style.

Here are a few of our favourite spots you will find:

Hoppers in St Christopher’s Place is a large restaurant with two floors, outdoor dining and private dining vaults, dishing up its renowned menu inspired by Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu. The St. Christopher’s Place menu is centred around Hoppers’ namesake dish, a bowl shaped pancake made from fermented rice batter and coconut milk, and the dosa, made from a fermented batter of ground rice and lentils.

 

Bone Daddies

In a friendly rock’n’roll environment, this ramen bar brings a dose of Japanese cool to the thriving St Christopher’s Place community. The menu features dishes developed by Ross Shonhan and group executive chef, Tom Moxon, including a Kushiyaki section offering skewers of different meats and vegetables, marinated in kimchee butter and sweet chilli ponzu, slow-cooked until succulent and tender over a robata grill. There are also a selection of wok dishes exclusive to the restaurant, which sit alongside the already much-loved Bone Daddies’ signature Ramen dishes.
