Pre dinner drinksK West Hotel’s Studio Bar 

K West Hotel’s Studio bar is a great destination for a pre-dinner cocktail or two ahead of a Shepherds Bush date night. It’s got glitz and it’s got glamour, with a stunning black granite bar illuminated by two very impressive drop-column chandeliers. The place to head for maximum sophistication!

Where to eat: Shikumen

Shikumen was a doubling of bets when it first opened it doors in the Dorsett Hotel, just six weeks after debuting their first restaurant in Ealing’s Xanadu Hotel. Named after a Shanghainese East-meets-West style, Shikumen seeks embrace the refinement of the 17th century fusion period. We’ve heard that the Dim Sum is the best in London, but that the Peking duck is equally as exquisite, needing exactly 45 minutes of intricate preparation for its two servings!
