Local Insight & Information About Liverpool Street
Largely considered as one of the boarders of The City, there is so much going on around Liverpool Street, providing a different experience each day of the week. Iconic landmarks, unique attractions, quirky bars and restaurants as well as some extremely high quality office space, this area has your work, pleasure and hosting needs covered. Plenty of new complexes and piazza style landscapes have been developed here in recent years making it one of the best areas for both commercial and residential properties and its accompanying entertainment within The City. Liverpool Street is fun, impressive, modern and unique with a great energy from day to night.
Places to find a good meal and nice drink are very common in the Liverpool Street area and they vary greatly, from the stunning skyscraper locations, to the secret speakeasy style bars such as The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town.
Heron Tower (The Salesforce Tower) is a spectacular 296 m tall and at the top sits the stunning Duck and Waffle restaurant. When walking into this immense building you are greeted with a triple height reception area and breath-taking panoramic views across the city develop the further up the tower you go. The ground floor is home to one of this office building’s wonderful food amenities whilst the top floor offers a choice of two beautiful restaurants. Duck and Waffle offers a menu of traditional British cuisine with a playful twist which incorporates a wonderful European influence. Dishes are served for both sharing and sampling accompanied by a large choice of cocktails for which the rule book has been completely thrown out of the window. Open 24/7, this location has a vibrant and ever changing atmosphere providing the perfect bite or drink no matter whether it be at breakfast, lunch, dinner or beyond.
The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town on the other hand, is a secret bar hidden within The Breakfast Club café. To the ignorant, the café is the same as any other but to those in the know the inconspicuous Smeg fridge hides a secret of fun and amusement. All that is required to enter is a request to see the mayor and the fridge door discretely opens allowing the merriment to commence. The bar contains a large collection of cocktails with great music and plenty of nibbles; their only rule in order to conceal the secret is that you must never exit via the fridge door.
