When you say Highbury to most people, there’s one thing that will immediately spring to their minds. Football. Highbury was the affectionate nickname for the Arsenal football stadium and for many, the name brings back memories of tense matches, good friends, the thrill of victory, the crushing disappointment of defeat, enjoying an evening with an independent Highbury escort, the clacking of plastic seats and plastic cups, good old days standing on the terraces.
Now however, those days are gone and with Arsenal having moved elsewhere, Highbury is finally free to shine again. The nearby Upper Street is famous for providing entertainment throughout the day and night. As a retail destination, it’s been through its fair share of ups and downs. It was particularly popular with Henry VIII and several members of his court but in the 1900’s, the area became rather unfashionable and many of the better residents and shops moved away from the area. Recently, it has enjoyed Islington’s resurgence and become a highly desirable location again, so there’s no shortage of quality shops.The high street brands are mixed with a number of smaller shops that aren’t part of a massive chain. That’s the magic of the area: small businesses can flourish here as long as they provide top notch service be they family owned fudge shops or independent Highbury escorts.
At night, Upper Street is transformed from a retail hotspot to a vibrant. There are nearly 100 bars, pubs and restaurants in the area so you’re sure to find somewhere to suit you. Maybe you want to dance the night away with one of the beautiful London escorts that the area is renowned for. If so, Matt and Matt is one the venues that generally missed by visitors but is beloved by locals. It’s combination of genuinely good dance music- it’s rather fashionable in Islington to play obscure artists just because they’re unknown- and killer cocktails will ensure that you have a great time, just try not to drink too much flavoured vodka or you’ll regret it in the morning!
If that’s not really your thing, then you can take it slow in one of the street’s many superb restaurants. You can never go wrong with a nice romantic meal in Le Mercury, which offers beautifully cooked food for a reasonable price. is also a solid choice. Going out for a meal doesn’t have to be the tame option though as proves. Massively praised by both critics and restaurant goers alike, Ottolenghi combines Mediterranean cuisine with a host of advanced techniques and innovative ideas to give you a dining experience you’ll never forget. It look the part too: the restaurant is set in a stylish pair of rooms that have more in common with a design studio than your typical eatery. It’s the perfect place to wow a young lady, and the experimental dishes will show that you’re in touch with the cutting edge of modern cooking. A little trip to Highbury could be all it takes to demonstrate that you’re a gentleman of class, charm and sophistication.
