Where to eat

Westfield also boasts an impressive range of eateries, such as Gourmet Burger Kitchen (which in our opinion does the best burgers in the world), Nando's, Bamboo Basket, Del'Aziz, Fire & Stone, Bill’s, The Real Greek, Wagamama & loads more. uk.westfield.com/london

Away from Westfiled, there's a good selection of places to eat and drink nearby. Here's some we recommend:

• Al Forno (Italian) - Shop 3/4 Romney Court, Shepherds Bush Green, W12 8PY - 020 8746 1433

Authentic Italian restaurant with a beautiful setting. Gorgeous food and friendly staff. Perfect pre-gig stop off!

• Tatra Restaurant (Polish) - 24 Goldhawk Road, W12 8DH -

020 8749 8193

Highly regarded Polish restaurant. Watch out for those vodka shots though...

O2 Empire customers receive 3 courses from the a la carte menu for £15 upon showing their ticket for that evenings show.

• Aroma (Oriental) - First Floor West 12 Shopping Centre (Opposite Shepherds Bush Central Line Station) - 020 8746 7625

All you can eat buffet with a selection of 85 dishes for dinner including Popular South East and Asian dishes, Sushi, Teppanyaki and homemade desserts.

• Liz Café - 7 Goldhawk Road, London W12 8QQ - 07984 660358

Family run business serving fresh home-cooked pastas, sandwiches and salads. They also have a selection of home-made cakes to accompany our great coffee and teas.

There's a wealth of pubs and bars in the vicinity too. The following all serve food and are only short hop from the venue:

• The Sindercombe Social - 2 Goldhawk Road, W12 8QD

Our lovely new next door neighbours.Pop up diner every day until 10pm. 2-4-1 burgers on Tuesdays and a roast on Sunday - can't go wrong!

• The Defector's Weld - 170 Uxbridge Road, W12 8AA

According to Time Out, “You won't find a pub much better than this west of Soho”. And frankly it's hard to disagree.

• The Green - 172-174 Uxbridge Road, W12 7JP (neighbor across the street to The Defector's Weld!)

A modern bar with big windows- just perfect for people watching...

Needless to say, we have McDonalds and KFC. There's also a Wetherspoons (in the West 12 shopping centre opposite central line station).

Where to stay

We have a lot of nice hotels in the area, so if you are coming from outside of London or even abroad or just want to have a big night out with some drinks, why not stay in one of them.

The Dorsett, Hotel Ibis & K West Hotel & Spa are some of the better known hotels, but there is also some lovely rooms in the few independent hotels nearby such as the Grantly Hotel (50-51 Shepherd's Bush Green, London W12 8PS - 020 8743 4345)

*************************************************************************

What else is there to do in the area

Firstly, the Westfield Shopping Centre is literally a few minutes away. If you have some time to spare before doors open, we recommend a shopping spree (although don't go too crazy, you've got to carry those bags all night!)

There is also other theatres and music venues in the area, we recommend:

• Bush Theatre - 7 Uxbridge Road, London W12 8LJ - 020 8743 5050

  • 'Saw' Steve Hillage here on 8th June 2019. Great concert but we were at the back of the auditorium and couldn't get onto the raised areas for love nor money. And sadly the 6 foot plus brigade were out...  more »
  • Fantastic evening with The Steve HIllage Band (Gong in fact) featuring Steve and Miquette Giraudy. We drove and parked in the street immediately behind the theatre - it was then a two minute walk past...  more »

  • Came here for the 1st time to see artist/rapper "noname". I was greeted by friendly security who checked my bag before going into the venue. The area had atmosphere felt very in control the sound, scene and lighting was good. The crowd was well behaved. The crowd staff offered cups of water before the main act came on stage which I thought was considerate even though I didn't feel hot because the venue was well ventilated. I enjoyed my time at the O2. and loved the decor it was clean inside and didn't have a beer smell. I recommend this place for an intimate gig. Only disappointment the act on stage could of been longer although there was an encore which was a delight to the crowd.
  • Very good music and entertainment venue. We saw Bill Bailey live here. Was an exceptional show fairly priced. Well organised event facility. Staff are experts in their field. Drinks a little pricey. Well worth seeing a band or show here.
