Over the last two years, Tat London and Lines have been discussing creating a pop up together. The idea was to bring two of our great passions, vintage clothing and tat. So here it is, the fruits of our collecting. We will be at the Tat Flat for two days; you can come to browse, say hi and perhaps buy.
There will be food and wine depending on the time!
We know that Shepherds Bush can be a bit out of the way for some, so I thought I'd give some suggestions of great places to eat and things to do in the area.
Lines London will be selling her 'Slava Ukraine' badges will all profits going to the British Red Cross. We will also be collecting on the day for Ukraine.
The Carpenters Arms
One of my favourite pubs in London, the food is delicious, the people are delightful, and the interiors are spot on.
Another excellent venue, hearty food, great atmosphere, and good dog watching.
The Oak W12
Sister restaurant to the Oak in Notting Hill, chic interiors with excellent cocktails. Perfect for Lunch, dinner or an evening apéritif.
Record shop, Bottle Shop & Bar what more could you ask for.
A charming restaurant in the middle of Brooke Green great food and a relaxed ambience.
Excellent for bigger groups. There are long outdoor tables (under heaters) and they serve terrific arancini and tip top grapefruit margaritas.
An absolute winner in my book, I have had some of the favourite meals in my life at Kricket, and I take every opportunity to go!
A hungover favourite of ours, just the perfect Chinese restaurant, low lighting with all the classics done very well.
Designed by Kate Guinness, this cafe is a West London hot spot. I had breakfast there the other day, and it was one of the best I have had for a while. Add it in with a visit to Emery Walker's House. More info below.
This place is very up my street, red, white table cloths with carefully placed flowers and full of pictures, great for a late lunch.
I always find this place an incongruous addition to Shepherds Bush. In the middle of all the hustle and bustle, you have this delightful wine bar: excellent interiors, lovely wine and great sharing plates.
Things To Do
A superb opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, Portobello Market is always worth a visit. If your hop on the Hammersmith & City Line, it will take you around 20mins from Ladbroke Grove to Shepherds Bush market.
Goldhawk Road Fabrics
You have to have nosy around these shops. They have some excellent fabrics, trims and other bits. I spend my life popping in and coming out with a few metres.
If you want to go for a walk along the river, I would suggest booking a spot in the Elder Press cafe and then visiting Emery Walker's House, a monument to the Arts and Crafts movement. Finish off by popping into The Carpenters Arms for a drink.
Not right around the corner from the Tat Flat but a doable distance. Leighton Hosue is one of those places you have to visit. It feels like you are walking into a different world. A real gem in the historic interiors of London.
You gotta poke your head into Chairman & Sons, it's got an excellent range of antiques, sofas, chairs and chandeliers.
Right next door to 'Next Door Records', you have the Bush Hall, which always seems to have something fun going on. On the 19th March, they are holding a Bruce Springsteen night, so an excellent opportunity to dust off your Levis.
One of the shining lights in the makeup of Shepherds Bush, not only does it have a beautiful bar, but there is always something intriguing on. On the 18th & 19th March, they will be performing The Route' step onto the route of Notting Hill Carnival past and present to celebrate Black Joy through live performance, music, dance, and big party vibes. You're invited to join us in honouring our community culture – and be sure to stay for the post-show after-party, complete with DJ and the best vibes.'
Anyway please do come and say hi, we will have a huge amount of stock so will be replenished for Saturday.
