NW10: The PD Guide to Kensal Green

4th November 2016.
by Sarah.

E1? Please. We’ve spent enough time in Shoreditch to know that half of the lurkers are really City guys who’ve just taken their ties off. We looked further afield to find a slayin’ location for our winter campaign, All Layer Player, and landed up in Kensal Green. Wanna know why NW10 slays? Bae, just let us take you on a tour…

Kensal Green: Where to Go

The Bakerloo line isn’t just a post-DSTRKT mistake, take the tube north and get off at Kensal Green to try something a lil new. And, dare we say it, we might just have a new fave part of London town.

Cable Co.

Where you at? Bridge House, Chamberlayne Rd, NW10 3NR

But first, coffee. Let’s start things the caffeinated way at Cable Co., who serve up a slayin’ flat white. With small plates and snacks a plenty, there’s no better way to start your day.

The Shop NW10

Where you at? 75 Chamberlayne Rd, London NW10 3ND

“Just popping down the shop” takes on a whole new meaning when you get north of Ladbroke Grove. Head to The Shop NW10 for a lil somethin’ somethin’ on a thirsty Thursday. Their cocktail menu gives you all the post-work feels, and we’re more than obsessed with the “Shop Credit” which is all kinds of vodka, elderflower and prosecco great.They also have plenty of pop up food stalls, from tacos to ribs, keep an eye on what’s going on to know what you’ll be snackin’ on.

Where you at? 64-66 Chamberlayne Road, NW10 3JJ

Good. Pub. Food. We always love a lil bit of pub grub, so it’s no surprise that we accidentally (on purpose) fell into Whippet Inn on Chamberlayne Road. If we could eat that Sunday Roast all day errday we’d be more than happy to start peeling the potatoes now.

When Symmetry Breakfast approves, you know you’re onto a brunch made in heaven. Obvs, it doesn’t just stop at breakfast, Parlour serve food to Kensal Green throughout the day, and we’re pretty taken with their sharing menu. Any menu that includes a toasted marshmallow wagon wheel is gonna make its way onto our favourites list without too much trouble.

Lexi Cinema

Where you at? 64-66 Chamberlayne Road, NW10 3JJ

Love me? Go on then. Less needy than your ex, the Lexi Cinema is gonna give you plenty of reasons to love it, and spend a small fortune on popcorn. They show smaller more indie films, and there are plenty of events ready for you to book into and get yo’ culture on. PS, don’t forget to look up at the installations on the ceiling when you get there.

Where you at? 19 Kilburn Ln, London W10 4AE

Okay, okay, we know this isn’t NW10, but how could we resist? Another Sunday Roast fiend, we’re obsessed with everything about this pub from its decor to its killer food. You can reserve areas for functions, and we’ve been to some pretty good birthday parties here before.
