Herb Lester Associates research, write, print and distribute maps and guides to the world's great cities.
We seek out the well-used and much-loved, and enjoy the extraordinary as well as the everyday. Old bookshops and new coffee shops, park benches and dive bars, hat shops and haberdashers: this is the world according to Herb Lester.
This is our guide to the best places to shop, dance, eat and drink in London, circa 1960-1966.
There are coffee bars, discotheques, boutiques and record shops, some of which have taken on almost mythical status, while others are all but forgotten – there's The Marquee, The Scotch of St James, The Ad Lib, Indica, Foale & Tuffin, Kleptomania, The Plug Hole... 130 entries for the man or woman about town.
