A Writers Story

Friday, 25 November 2016

As you know I am a keen writer, but what you don't know is that I don't like to write at home. (Interesting fact I know).

But at home I have many distractions, whether it's my TV, having to clean or Lego Dimensions so I tend to go out to write and here are my two favourite places to do so.

Picturehouse Central - Members Bar

With a glorious view down Piccadilly and Haymarket, the Members bar is the perfect location to write and work with a bit of exclusivity. A membership to access the bar with roof terrace as well is £75 for the year, but you do get four free cinema tickets on top and if you save them for exclusive events you can make your money back quickly.

The atmosphere in this bar is light and quiet, a perfect place to work with film inspiration everywhere. I tend to write with a beer (it loosens up the brain) and here it's a reasonable £4.32 for a pint of Estrella due to a 10% discount with membership.

BFI - Benugo Bar & Kitchen

Round the back of the BFI Southbank and through the string curtains is the dimly lit, jazz scored Benugo Bar. Here you will notice everyone is on a Macbook typing away and the atmosphere is very creative. The jazz music helps you relax and the dim lights help you focus. A BFI membership will get you 10% off soft drinks at the bar, but note that if you order from your seat there is a service charge on top of your order.

A beer of Heineken here will set you back £4.80 here as there is no discount on alcohol. A BFI membership however, does get you early access to the London Film Festival and money off in the shop. So at £45 for the year it's well worth it for film fans.

Both BFI and Picturehouse memberships make great unique christmas presents for the creative friend, family or partner. Click on the images below to buy yours now.

I am currently writing my way through a play, a feature film, a self help book and a new fantasy trilogy and enjoy both these places very much. 

If you see me around don't forget to say hi.

Until next week.
