This is an interior design studio on the one hand, and a shop that stocks bespoke and curated designs on the other. Think copper lighting, rounded mirrors, prints, and crockery, too.

Cassina is known for its expertly crafted classics designed by maestri such as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Gerrit Rietveld, and Charlotte Perriand.

All African charm and served all day.  Think pastries, coffees, and
breakfasts that  become drinks as the sun goes down. The décor is rustic
and charming and it’s open early for pre-work flat whites.

Well-recognised and well-lit are two terms that characterise Flos. The successful industrial designers at Flos have won numerous awards and accolades. Their outdoor, sculptural, and feature lighting encompasses the
sophisticated nature associated with Italian furniture brands.

If you haven’t tasted a BGR burger, prepare to be transported to the good ol’ USA courtesy of Josh Cherry and Jed Goldstein. Diners get to choose a single
or a double patty, with cheese or without. We’d recommend including “The Works” (the toppings), for a complete BGR experience. The burgers are best
eaten directly off the grill, and the fries are completely moreish. This boutique American-style burger joint used to be located in the petrol station under the
Trumpet, and has now moved to the mile.
