“This week we’re heading to Neal Street’s little sister, Endell Street. At first look it’s a poor companion; sure there’s a few nice trendy shops and cafes and stuff, and also a wonderfully old foliage festooned pub, the Cross Keys.
But what Endell Street is infamous for is the Hospital Club. Set up by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and Dave Stewart, it’s a club whose ethos is to promote all aspects of being creative.
I’ve always liked Endell Street. Mostly for the Cross Keys, but also as a wonderfully quick way to get through Covent Garden without being chuggered to death. Oh, there’s a little public drinking fountain too.”
