From intense training to laidback socialising, gents here’s a round up of the places to see and be seen in, in SW19.
For the workout warrior
“Feel the change” as the personal trainers say at Fit8 – a revolutionary approach to physical health and fitness that delivers a truly personal, affordable and progressive system. Or for a more mellow vibe, practice mindfulness at Good Life Yoga. Hey, 2017 is the year of wellness after all. And if the sun’s out or you’re willing to brave the rain, make the most of Wimbledon Common, offering a variety of terrain for both runners and cyclists (just keep your fixie bikes off our dirt).
For the sartorial gent
You don’t need to cross the capital to dress well. Find a variety of high-end and designer fashion right here in Wimbledon Village. There’s a lot to explore: visit Matches Fashion for seasonal edits, Orlebar Brown for your jet-set holiday and The Wardrobe Wimbledon for exceptional suits.
For the starry-eyed proposer
“YES” she’ll say when presented with a ring from independent jewellers, Michael Platt. Their jewellery is handmade by skilled craftsmen in the onsite workshop. How charming.
For the coffee connoisseur
Be the original thinker, powered by caffeine. One of the best coffees in Wimbledon can be found at Brew café where they use top-quality Arabica beans.
For the boys’ night
Easy-going pubs in the Village tick all the important boxes: great beers, sports screenings and outstanding burgers. You’ll find the best atmosphere at the Dog & Fox, but within strolling distance and worthy of a drink are fellow town-meets-country pubs Rose & Crown, Crooked Billet, Hand in Hand and Fox & Grapes.
For some seriously stylish sipping book a table at The Ivy Café Wimbledon or the newly opened Thai restaurant, Patara which has a sophisticated, exclusive vibe and gives you a flavour as to where the Village is going.
