Reverend J W Simpson is one of those cool and kooky little basement bars that has probably bore witness to hundreds, if not thousands, of promising Tinder dates. The former home of a Fitzrovia reverend, a lot of the worn wallpaper, flooring, and kitchen tiling remains in each of the rooms so it has a nostalgic and cosy feel, setting it apart from a lot of other bars in the area. This place also takes their cocktails very seriously, with everything from creative takes on the classics to their excellent ‘drinks with benefits’ menu that are full of ingredients like strawberry balsamic shrubs, açai liqueurs, and other things we don’t really understand but taste great.

Not only is the sushi at Sushi Atelier on Great Portland Street great, it’s also very affordable. Sit at the bar and get the 12-piece omakase.
Mere functions on absolute precision. It might not leave much room for laughs, but the food at this Fitzrovia spot is worth getting organised for.
