When you’re travelling on business it can be frustrating if you spend each and every night staring at the same four walls. Working in London’s Canary Wharf means you’re at the heart of Europe’s financial hub. But you still need a night off every now and then. Here is Clarendon’s advice for the hotspots in the City.
Everyone needs to blow off a little steam from time to time. If you’re relocating to The City and are looking for temporary accommodation in Canary Wharf or you’re working on a contract there then you need to know the best bars and restaurants to try.
Staying in serviced apartments in Canary Wharf you have the benefit of having a home away from home. With a fully fitted kitchen and plenty of living space you can cook meals yourself and don’t have to rely on the expenses account to dine out every night, especially as travel budgets have been squeezed. Yet no one can stay in all the time. You work hard, especially in the City and any stressful job demands downtime.
If you fancy a cocktail then try Davy’s Wine Bar. A two minute walk from Canary Wharf it’s a great destination for a summer evening as the tables and chairs spill out onto the riverside. There is food available all day and it’s the ideal setting to unwind or carry on a conversation from the office. The Parlour is located on Canada Square Park and it’s a popular venue for City workers. An all-day menu, impressive wine list and even low-calorie cocktails it’s a great place to spend an evening or pop in for lunch. For those who want a wine bar that screams elegance then Corney & Barrow is a must-visit. An extensive wine list with comfortable and intimate interiors it’s designed for those who lead busy lives but need to relax.
Serviced apartments in Canary Wharf do allow you to prepare your own meals, but you can give yourself the night off and sample one of the numerous restaurants in the neighbourhood. There are a wide range of cuisines on offer for even the fussiest of eaters in the City. Carluccio’s Italian restaurant is well known for using fresh ingredients and offering a taste of Mediterranean food and drink. A little further afield, from a culinary perspective, is Moshi Moshi which offers conveyor belt sushi in the heart of The City. For those looking for traditional British fayre, Tom’s Kitchen is a new addition to Canary Wharf and from breakfast to dinner sit in an intimate booth and try a range of comfort food classics.
