A new pintxo bar called Pix will open on Sep 15th on Westbourne Grove – occupying the former Tea Palace site. From what I can see they’ve done a fine job – particularly as the position is a hard one to get right. The decor is dark and cosy with stylish signing : all blackish walls, roughed up/ mismatched/ casual furniture and upside down anglepoise lamps as ceiling lights….v cool. Loving the greyhound / lurcher dog statues too.
Westbourne Grove is going very Euro indeed. Adding to the continental feel is the imminent opening of Les Petites which will join fellow French stores Zadig & Voltaire and Loft in the strip that I call French Alley.
