How much?

Kensal Rise locals waited a long time for The Shop. Sure for those of you in Hackney or Shoreditch the idea of a cocktail bar that sells neat cocktails in milk bottles and serves marmite pork pies might be met with a yawn and a “what, another one?”, but here in the dead centre of yummy mummydom it’s a blessed relief. And they keep coming up with interesting ideas too: London’s only kosher Sunday lunch for starters. The venue also plays host to a range of pop-up installations, gigs and art. Wittily named drinks – Once Loved, Shop Assistant and Size Zero – offer retail therapy with a twist. / Rob Valid
