From nightlife to food runs, U.K. pop siren Ellie Goulding gushes about London’s top shops
BEST THROAT-CLEARING BREW
Windsor Castle, Kensington, West London, thewindsorcastlekensington.co.uk
"It’s basically an old-man pub. It’s like a museum of the royal family. There’s stu everywhere. All of the walls are covered in photos, and they have an international club for men with handlebar moustaches. I order Guinness. It tastes like a bitter milk shake."
BEST EDM SPOT
Fabric, East London, fabriclondon.com
"It’s really grimy, sweaty and they’ll do continuous garage for hours and hours."
BEST BRITISH FRY-UP
Shoreditch House, East London, shoreditchhouse.com
"Everyone does a good British fry-up in London, but Shoreditch House does a posh one. It’s good quality, local ingredients—sausages, bacon, free-range poached eggs, hash browns, mushrooms, baked beans.
BEST HANGOVER MEAL
Natural Kitchen, London, thenaturalkitchen.com
"I usually get carrot-apple ginger juice. It’s probably not very good on the stomach, but I like the taste. And it makes me feel like I’ve done something good."
