Soho London: how eating outside could save the West End after lockdown

Al-fresco dining is set to bring back the buzz to London’s famed West End. Pubs, cafes and restaurants will spill out onto the streets over the summer, reviving spending and lifting the city’s spirits. Soho Estate’s John James has led the charge to get the district back up and running, and says he’s delighted Westminster City has heard their calls.

The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick tells us what fans can expect from kick off tonight.
