Ah, we do like a sociable drinkerie in the Rise. The Shop opened to quite a fanfare a couple of weeks ago, as this Twitpic we snapped from the road shows. Where Miro’s wine bar once stood is this much-needed edgy rendezvous for night owls.
And now we’re getting a boutique by way of the boozer to boot. Savvy second-hand peddler the Broken Down Doll arrived yesterday with her hand-picked treasures from London, Paris and beyond. An Irish and Texan sartorialist pair of ladies are behind this very chic way to shop. And you know at Park Life we like to mix thriftshoppy thrills with convivial kicks (Kensal Flea is back on Saturday 19 November if you’re wondering). So, yup, we’ll drink to that.
Broken Down Doll Bar Boutique is at the Shop today and tomorrow, 10am–7pm and then on Saturday, noon until 4pm.
The Shop, 75 Chamberlayne Road NW10 3ND
