Opened in 1968, The Chelsea Drugstore was a sleek modern glass and aluminium fronted building on the northwest corner of Royal Avenue and the Kings Road, in west London. Modelled on Le Drugstore on Boulevard St Germain in Paris, the Chelsea Drugstore was arranged over three floors and on most days remained open for up to 16 hours. Inside customers would find bars, a chemist, newsstands, record stores and other concessions. A popular service was the 'flying squad' delivery option run by the store. Those who used this service would have their purchases delivered by hand by young ladies adorned in purple catsuits arriving on flashy motorcycles.In popular cultureThe store is notably mentioned in The Rolling Stones song "You Can't Always Get What You Want". Chelsea Drugstore is also the title of a 2012 EP by UK band The Jetsonics as well as it being a film location in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. The store became a wine bar and then a McDonald's. Both pub and retail shops below were open until the late 1980s.
Built in 1840 and formerly known as The Queens Head Hotel, this historic pub has been at the centre of the community for 175 years.
The Queens head has always attracted a Bohemian crowd with its unique atmosphere and alternative entertainment at weekends. In the '60s, when Chelsea was "swinging", the pub was a magnet for local fashion and art personalities. Quentin Crisp drank here in the '70s and going back even further, it's rumoured that Oscar Wilde was a patron in the late 1880s! In his autobiography, national treasure Stephen Fry describes the place as a "very Chelsea gay pub".
The BBC's war correspondent John Simpson's great-great-grandfather was the landlord here in 1871; he dropped dead behind the bar after mistakenly drinking poison in the form of line-cleaning fluid. It's rumoured that his spirit continues to frequent the snug to this day...
The Queens is also known as a haven for local workers, residents and shoppers - a warm, comfortable and friendly place where people from all walks of life can have a welcome drink and a delicious bite to eat; an oasis of calm just seconds away from Chelsea's famous King's Road.
The Drayton Arms is an eclectic mix of trusty local pub and stylish South Kensington nightspot.

When it comes to pubs in South Kensington, The Drayton Arms can't be surpassed for its encyclopaedic drinks range, fresh, seasonal food and offbeat charm. In fact, we think it's among the best places to eat and drink in London. Come and lay claim to one of our cosy corners or, in summer, soak up the atmosphere in our gorgeous beer garden.

Hidden away in a sleepy enclave of Chelsea, Nam Long's fine oriental cuisine and lavish cocktails have been serving London's finest since 1987. The establishment has a storied history, yet has maintained its original charm through the decades. The French colonial Indochine influence and the eclectic artwork adorning the walls gives Nam Long a distinctive atmosphere and ambience, a place like no other.
The Fox and Hounds is a cosy and inviting 19th century pub tucked away behind Sloane Square and the Kings Road.
Built in 1860 as a working mans pub for the staff of the Grosvenor estate, the pub originally operated as ales only. It was in-fact the last London Pub to operate as such until in 1996, a spirit license was at long last acquired.
You'll find plenty of fox themed memorabilia on the walls and three big hounds even live upstairs! The pub is also close to Chelsea Royal Hospital, so expect to see the traditional Chelsea pensioner propping up the bar and doing a crossword during the day!
The Fox has the widest possible clientele and it is not at all odd to see the odd celebrity having a well deserved pint after a show at the Royal Court Theatre.
Customers can enjoy fine cask ales, distinctive international lagers and a good selection of wines.
The pub is dog friendly so feel free to bring your four legged family members along too!
