The Districts of Soho, Marylebone (with Fitzrovia) & Mayfair

††††††††††† The coordinates [123 A1] locate the area in the Geographer's AZ London Street Atlas, the small book.That is page 123 and grid A1.This is a big area in London's West End and to make my life easy I did not break the pubs into groups.

 

Soho

Tucked between Oxford St, Charring Cross Road, Shaftesbury Avenue and Regent Street, Soho is the hub of activity all hours of the night.But the pubs still close at 11 PM.

 

Mayfair

Fashionable Mayfair is in stark contrast to its neighbor Soho.Between Regent Street, Park Lane, Oxford St and Piccadilly, it is the fashionable place to be seen.The US Embassy is here at Grosvenor Square.

 

Marylebone & Fitzrovia

North of Oxford Street to Regent's Park and West of Tottenham Court Road and East of Edgware Road.Give or take.

 

The Pubs

 

Admiral Duncan (Scottish-Courage) Soho [140 A9]

54 Old Compton St W1 near Wardour St

Phone 020 7437-5300

Tottenham Court Road or Leicester Square Stations

One cannot miss the paint job out side. I remember being in here during the late 80ís

onlybecause I have a note reminding me. Iím long overdue for my next visit. The pub was

refurbished in 1999. Note: Bombed in 1999 by a man who tried to kill gay men and

women but up and running in January 2000.

 

Angel Tavern (Samuel Smith) Marylebone[139 H6]

Also called the Angel in the Field

37 Thayer St W1 at Marylebone Lane

Phone 020 7486-7763

Bond Street Station

Interior or exterior features architecturally impressive.

This Victorian pub is very decorative. My impression as I sat in this pub was being in an old English Manor house far from the city. Completely surrounded by English Oak and leaded windows to keep the outside distractions out of sight, one should not be in too much of a hurry to drink fast.

 

Argyll Arms (Nicholson's) Soho [139 L8]

18 Argyll St W1 off Oxford St

Phone 020 7734-6117

Oxford Circus Station

††††††††††† The Argyll Arms is an excellent example of type of pub that was popular in the late 1800's through the mid 1900's.It is one pub with a number of bars.The first two rooms you see upon entering are what where called Public Bars.These bars were for the workingman of the day.The room in the rear was the saloon bar.This was a lounge bar for people that were well off.It was a nicer looking room but the price of a pint was a bit more.

 

Audley (Scottish-Courage) Mayfair [145 H1]

41 Mount St W1 at South Audley St

Phone 020 7499-1843

Bond Street Station

Interior or exterior features architecturally impressive.

Take a good look inside and you will see two different bars side by side. One side was a saloon bar and the other the public house. At one time this separated people by class. Food server at one end, fireplace at the other and a beautiful ceiling clock in the middle. Two blocks south from the US Em≠bassy.

 

This splendid Edwardian pub is very comfortable any time of the day and still in pristine condition.Just two blocks south from the US Embassy it's in an upscale part of town.Take a good look inside and you will see two different bars side by side.One side was a lounge bar for the upper crust and the other side was the public house for people like me.People are no longer separated due to their Station in life and you could end up talking to a famous actor.A food server at one end, fireplace at the other and a beautiful ceiling clock in the middle.

Wells St W1 between Oxford St and Eastcastle

Phone 020 7636-0717, Web www.eeriepubco.com

Tottenham Court Road or Oxford Circus Stations, Goodge Street Station

Similar to the Jeckle & Hyde pubs found in New York City. The AZ book does not name the street behind the pub and I forgot it too. But I remember that this was the Hollyrood way back in the 80ís.

Phone 020 7437-0847

This is a larger pub in the middle of the block.It is very nice looking but it is not a pub of yesteryear.None-the-less it should not be passed by if you are one of the younger (under 30) readers.I think that I saw this pub was closed during my January 2000 tour.Let me know if it is open, thank you.

Windows are architecturally impressive.

It has some of the best stained glass you will see in any pub. Look for Sir Edward Hillary and other champions, hence the name. Bring your camera on a sunny day. The best place to stop if shopping on Oxford St. Come back at night also.It will have a different atmosphere about the place.

Phone: 020 7629 4123

Bond St, Piccidilly Circus or Green Park Stations

The ceiling has some very interesting features that are not typically found in London pub architecture. The wood work is decorative and shows how detail was put into building the place. The lunch menu was very good. The pub is one room and not very large but it has a lot of table space for eating. This was an enjoyable visit for me in during my January 2003 tour. Lunch is served Monday through Saturday upstairs from noon to 14.00 and at the bar and at the bar from 11:30 to 21.00.

1 Waverton W1 at Charles St

Green Park Station

A beautiful and tiny pub tucked away at the end of Charles Street. It is away from the tourist routes and is used mostly by the locals and office workers. Open 7 days a week.

Charles Street is in a very quite residential area. The sidewalk near the pub is so narrow one must step out into the street to get around waste bags the night before collection. Reaching for the door brings a sense of stepping back in time. If anything you step into a well-respected pub that radiates warmth. A food service is on the left and a multi-star restaurant is toward the rear. Seating is to the right and a small room is in the rear.

Jan 2003: This is a most unusual pub to say the least and should be on everyoneís pub crawl list. The front windows look like curio cabinets that have a display of china and figures that could rival some museums. Inside is more along with many old photos. The bar on the left as you enter has a huge display of beer bottles built into the bar front. As for the Thai food I had the best squid here. A very popular place.
