Cheese toastie in hand (omg yum) we settled down with a few beers from the Routemaster Bus Bar and watched folks swing dance to the music being DJed stay by Soho Radio and revellers decked out in essentially the most STUNNING classic getups stride by.
Starvation and thirst totally sated, we discovered time to take a look at the Dangerous Karma Impala- a charity fundraiser engaging you to graffiti on a automotive, and stopped by the cellular classic cinema for a sneaky screening (which was so comfortable and cosy!).
