When it comes to dining, Islington can be a little overwhelming. With its multitude of Italian, French, Argentinean, Japanese and even American diners, there is an extremely wide choice. Within the hotel however, there is an excellent restaurant, based upon an Asian styled tapas bar, which serves specialty teas, coffees, liqueurs and light meals. This is the perfect place to relax with an afternoon snack or light evening meal before heading out into the city to indulge a little further. It’s also a great place to meet people and get the lowdown on the area, as many Islington residents like to visit the restaurant in the early evening.
Islington is also well known for its vibrant nightlife, and in keeping with the tradition, Tommy Miah’s has recently launched its Music and Dining Club. The aim of this is to raise money for various UK and overseas charities by hosting a series of gastro-musical events at the hotel. The celebrity chef has been involved in charity work for the past 20 years and recent cultural events at the hotel have included everything from Japanese to Indian-inspired food and music. The events usually begin with a selection of canapés, a musical recital and are followed by dinner in the hotel’s restaurant.
