I would say NOT a betting shop, Subway, chicken restaurant or estate agent.
There's nowhere (really) to get music, books or clothes.
If i were you, I'd try and poach Dotori from their rubbishy building.
Also, picking a mainly white development next to an 8-track open air railway line and bus station? That's going to get dirty quickly.
Isn't the breakfast club a greasy spoon?
How about a tribute cafe called 'Pushing up Daisies'?
@ unaesthetic - didn't that pub opposite the south entrance to the FP tube foot tunnel used to be your small venue request?
No loud music? So what about quiet music? A venue for ambient music perhaps?
Otherwise, let me also join in the general clamour for the butcher, the baker and the civilised comestible maker.
Proper tapas please. Something like Bar Camino in Kings Cross might work though I don't care for the trendiness, just good Spanish food. A Brindisa would be awesome but doubt enough share that view.
Perhaps a clothes shop - wasn't someone on here looking into starting one? Hold on... perhaps chase Danny up.
I would like:
cinema (like everyman in hampstead or electric in nottinghill - might bring in the crouch end/muswell hill crowd!)
tapas - definitely.
ooh, and having just read about jack's - a decent off-licence (think someone has said this)
For me, one of the main attractions of the area is that it doesn't have the 'main players' in it.
I think that's true of lots of people in the area.
If you could find a way of encouraging genuinely interesting and independent businesses to set up in your property, you'd be creating something unique. Which in the current market, is the only way you'll make your money back.
Think Lambs Conduit Street rather than Upper Street.
