We are visiting London during the London summer and we will have our 11 year old son and 9 month old baby with us.
As I used to live in London we have arranged an evening to catch up with friends and said we will confirm a venue in Central London (ideally somewhere around Oxford Circus, Bond Street, Regent Street, Picadilly Circus, Soho or West End so it is easy for everyone to get to).
The get together is for drinks not dinner so we don't want a restaurant but rather a bar/pub that has a nice atmosphere and is easy to talk in and hopefully also has some bar snacks/tapas that people can order if they get peckish.
As we will have our children with us we need it to be somewhere that is ok with children being there. Most of our friends don't have children though so we don't want somewhere that is just a very kids oriented venue - e.g. Planet Hollywood or Rainforest Cafe, rather we would like somewhere that is more trendy.
What suggestions do people have?
Thanks in advance!
