Time Out Love London Awards 2015

That’s right, after inspiring more than 250,000 of you to get passionate about your postcodes last year, the Time Out Love London Awards are back for 2015.

Hurrah - we have been nominated!  Regulars (who have been paying attention) will know that we won this prestigious award in 2014 for best independent shop in N19, and we have proudly displayed our 'trophy' (aka a window sticker) all year!

There has been a little controversy and confusion this year surrounding the nomination phase and the name or our area.  We are big fans of Archway, both it's name and nature, so much so we have branded a whole range of our products, and we vehemently resist the temptation to condone any nonsense of an unnecessary area renaming.  But in terms of postcodes Archway doesn't exist.  We are Upper Holloway as designated by the Post Office almost 100 years ago, and the Time Out Love London Award has taken these post code areas rather than the name of our town centre!  Surely it can only be due to this confusion that there weren't enough venues nominated in the pubs & bars category for Time Out to open it up to the vote?  I think St john's Tavern & Charlotte Despard (both winners last year) can rightfully feel a little miffed!

Rant over........It’s time for you to champion your favourite bits of Upper Holloway that everyone else who lives here knows as Archway.  So click here, have a look at who has been nominated in Upper Holloway & get voting!
