What the hell do I do in London?

Need advice - will be there for a week in January for work.

Looking for bars, restaurants and the such. Staying next to Hyde Park.

I rate Hoxton, Soho and Camden the best areas for a pub crawl (in order of preference). Plenty of good eateries there too.

'Chasing Bono', based on McCormicks book is still on in first half of January https://sohotheatre.com/shows/chasing-bono/

Dim Sum in London is soooo much better than NYC, Headache. It's been a few years, but Royal China in Baker Street was delicious.

In seriousness, the two pubs that friends took me to last time I was in London that I enjoyed the most were the Ship and Shovell in Charing Cross and the Dove in Hammersmith.

My travels tend to revolve around food and drink, so.

Thanks all!

Ax, too, even though he's scared to get on a plane and fight.

Wrong country again, friggin' Headacher.

Bet you can find a tour about him in London though.
