Maison Berthaux tea rooms in Soho

This week I visited one of my friends from the Sing 2 Beat Breast Cancer choir, Diana Matheou, who has lived in Soho since the 1970s. I wanted to interview her about “Les Cousins” folk music club, in Greek Street, which she and her husband used to run in the 60s and 70s, as well as getting the low-down on Soho for another of my “London Cameos” videos.

Soho is a strange mixture of seedy private clubs and red lights, cosy pubs, world-class music venues, specialist coffee shops, patisseries and tearooms – all with an enticing bohemian village atmosphere. We barely touched the surface during this visit – so I shall be back again soon!
