Unusual Eateries

You're in for a Treat

If you don't fancy clawing your way through the city to find a decent cafe, book in at Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium (152-154 Bethnal Green Rd, Shoreditch, E2 6DG). The UK's first cat cafe opened a couple of years ago and has been a successful little pad ever since. Moggies are free to roam round the cafe (they don't have access to the kitchen, though). Bookings are essential. Another unusual cafe in London is Draughts London (337 Acton Mews, Hackney, E8 4EA) which takes gaming to a whole new level. They have more than 600 board games for you to challenge your GlobeGo host to while you relax in the chilled out atmosphere. You're guaranteed bad service and appalling jokes at Faulty Towers' Dining Experience (Amba Hotel Charing Cross, The Torquay Suite Theatre, Strand, WC2N 5HX), it's all part of the night. Based on Britain's best loved 1970s TV series, Fawlty Towers, you'll be part of the hotel's guests (who the manager has absolute contempt for) as you feast on a three-course meal. Actors play the roles of the main characters and get everyone involved. Bookings only. Book online. Dine in the Dark (30-31 Clerkenwell Green, Clerkenwell, London) is another popular yet unusual restaurant in London, set completely in the dark. You're served by staff who are visually impaired and the entire experience is designed to give you a different perspective. While it is a great night out (you won't know what you're eating until after you've had it), it is expensive, so be prepared. Book online.
