Christopher Raeburn - Founder of RÆBURN

This week we met with British fashion designer Christopher Raeburn known for ethical integrity in his sustainable fashion brand RAEBURN. The recently opened concept store on Marshall Street represents the label’s responsible initiative to change the way clothes are manufactured, using recycled items such as parachutes to create incredible garments, in short; where daily design meets responsible production. Read on to find out where you'll find him hanging out in Soho. 


The Coach and Horses, Romilly Street

"A proper old school boozer (don't be fooled by the lick of paint on the outside during lockdown), and you never know who will start playing the piano inside. "

Brasserie Zedel (classic), Sherwood Street

"Hard to believe you are in the heart of Piccadilly when you descend the stairs (you could be on a cruise ship from back in the day.)"

Mr. Taro, Brewer Street (everyone loves Taro) 

"Mr. Taro is very much a Soho institution and I've been going since my days at the Royal College of Art." 

Evelyn's Table, Rupert Street

"Named after Faye Dunaway's character in China Town, Evelyn's Table seats only 11 diners at a time and boasts some of the best seafood and modern European food in the capital." 


Star and Garter, Poland Street

"The Star has been a staple in Soho for many years, a beautifully laid out bar with old pub relics dotted about. Great beer and amazing service."

Koya, Frith Street

"Brilliant udon bar, if you can get a seat, otherwise it is very much worth a wait."

Joy King Lau, Leicester Street

"Best dimsum in London and a really authentic experience."

The Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Place London

"A brilliant mix of cult classics, new releases and movie marathons, The Prince Charles is a must visit institution (glow in the dark stars on the ceiling a plus)."
