Nothing will ever live up to the authentic Rio vibes, but head here for a Brazillian-style opening par-tay on the Friday, an outdoor screen, and some crazy ‘tough mudder’ style games if you’re hardcore like that.

Paddington Central

Before you hop on your train – catch some sporting action here. The theme here is all clean and healthy living, with wholesome food offerings. We say no harm in sneaking in the hipflask though.
