Where Molly Goddard Hangs Out In London


Where does a girl in ruffles, gingham and tulle go? Anywhere she wants to, of course.

SPACE designer Molly Goddard is one of the biggest names in London right now-in no small part because she's helped define a look that's part party girl, part everyday sport-romance, and part remembered fever dream from your very first ballet class. But the bottom line is that you can take anything from her spring collection, add a sneaker and a tee-shirt, and you're good for a night of soccer matches, sushi rolls, or late night club tunes.

If you'd ever like to try any of the above in the designer's hometown-well, now you can. Just let Molly and her boyfriend and business partner Tom Shickle tell you where to go.

Lisboa, Golbourne Road
"Where we live is a big Spanish and Portugese community, and this is a Portugese bakery and cafe thats been around for decades. You have to try the natas, custard tarts, with a strong coffee in a cup. Depending on what time of year it is they'll have different things but if you're lucky, ask for the sonhos (basically fried dough, pronounced son-yos) with sugar and cinnamon."

Sporting Club de Londres, Westbourne Park
"This is a mad Portugese social club/restaurant, go on a Sunday afternoon where you'll get served questionable food but the atmosphere is incredible, with bingo and club singers. Our friend Lotte puts on parties there that are really fun."

This is a sushi place that has spawned a few brothers and sisters across london recently but this one remains the smallest and realest. Good prices and really fresh! We have never been and not bumped into someone or someones mum we know, my old primary school is at the end of the road.

French House, Dean Street
Fantastic pub in Soho run by Lesley the fantastic landlady who has become a friend and comes to our shows. Always full even on a weekday afternoon with the strangest, most beautiful soho locals who've been regulars forever.

Another Soho bar thats open really late. Quite hard to find tucked away in a basement but once you're in you won't leave until the next day.

Thai in the basement of the We were walking around a few weeks ago and had a drink in this pub on the edge of an estate just off the edgware road. The pub was full of people who'd finished work, builders and businessmen and downstairs had been taken over by a thai family, the most incredible Thai food we've ever had but INSANELY spicy. Heron Pub, Edgware Road
