Bar & Restaurant
The Village Retail Space is one of the modern boutiques lining Ham Yard Village’s entrance. The floor-to-ceiling window front and stylish simplistic interior make it the perfect blank canvas for any retail brand to make the space their own and showcase their brand IRL. What’s more, there are already dressing rooms in the back fitted out for you, so a fashion brand could certainly make themselves comfortable here. Prepare yourself for major footfall as you’ll be on one of Soho’s well-known through routes to Piccadilly Circus station - what more could you want?
Although you’ll attract Soho’s usual crowd of eclectic creatives, you’ll also have shoppers from afar passing by to explore its hand-picked collection of shops, restaurants and bars that make up this courtyard. One of the many things visitors say about Ham Yard Village is that ‘it doesn't feel like Soho’. This chic enclave – in the middle of one of London’s busiest neighbourhoods – acts as a portal to village life for shoppers and guests from the adjoined hotel.
Bloomsbury Flowers, Jac + Jack, Caramel and Press Juice will all be your neighbours here in the village. Ham Yard Village connects Great Windmill Street and Denman Street, and is 2 minutes from Piccadilly Circus. Moments from the exclusive streets of nearby Mayfair.

Please inform the hotel Concierge if you are holding an evening event during your occupation. There is an absolute restriction that guests of any event are contained within the retail space itself and not in any external areas – guests are not permitted to congregate outside the unit at any time – this is a licensing restriction imposed by the local authority. The landlords reserves the right to close any event taking place where this restriction is not adhered to.
Music - Occupiers may play their own music within their stores should they wish but at all times any music played must not be audible outside the space.
Branding and advertising signs - Vinyls of a pre-agreed and approved design may be placed on the inside only of the shop windows and removed and the glazing cleaned at departure. Signs advertising ‘Sale’ or ‘Discounts’ visible from outside the store are strictly prohibited.

Whilst the system covers the entire development each unit has its own set of controls within the store which can be adjusted accordingly. There is also a hot air door curtain above each entrance door enabling entrance doors to be left open in a welcoming fashion during trading hours but mostly preventing heat from the unit to escape - again this system has its own controls within the unit.
