One of the favorite bookshops in New York, McNally Jackson offers great books in within art, design and culture that you won't usually find at your local Barnes and Nobles. With a cosy cafe in the shop, its a great place pass some time. Don't forget to check out the lower floor when you're there.

Very cozy place with lots of locals who come for brunch. They also have the best brownie in London, gluten free options, and a nice and friendly staff. Only 5 minutes walk from the Finsbury park station.

This place made it to the Top 100 places in the world to visit before you die. There is amazing interior and the best cocktails you can ever taste. There are only candles to light the place and floor is covered by a carpet. It is very stylish and cosy place for a drink. I like to go there for the calm atmosphere to enjoy my drink. Even though you might expect high prices in such a place, it is still very budget friendly - actually almost everything in Prague is :)

A tiny, cosy bar where the walls are covered by whiskey labels and true gentlemen rule the bar. With more than 100 whiskeys on the menu, there is more than you can count or taste. Luckily they offer great tasters, combining new whiskeys and old and vintage ones. And yes, they also have beer!

You'll feel like you've stepped in to an old East German living room. Truly cosy and friendly, and the cocktail list is astounding. A lovely chilled atmosphere with gorgeous decor and old music playing on their record player.
