We came here on London Cocktail Week as part of a tour (definitely not a crawl…) of bars in Notting Hill. Trailer Happiness is on the corner of Portobello Road and Elgin Crescent. It’s easy to miss, as the only thing marking its spot is a mannequin in what looks like a shop window.

Maltby Street Market

We love a food market, and Maltby Street Market in Bermondsey is one of our favourites for a foodie date. It’s the kind of place where a couple of drinks or a plate of tapas can easily lead to a whole day of eating, drinking and wandering.
