1. Turning the pub into my social-meeting hub
The pub is a quintessentially British thing, and in London pubs are as frequent as Starbucks in New York. They are open throughout the day and have all sorts of things to keep your attention. I’ve always been much more of a café person, but since making London my base I have spent way too many hours in the pub — I tend to end up here no matter the occasion or the day of the week. For dinner, snacks, pints, drinks, coffee, crumbles with custard, to play board games, watch the Premier League, sit outside, take a quiz, for birthday parties, leaving drinks and for after works and Sunday roasts, you will find me and every other Londoner at the pub around the corner.
