The pulsating vibe of Soho today makes it hard to believe that this area was once the favourite hunting ground for the monarchy back in the 16th Century. The Duke of Monmouth is said to have coined the hunting cry of ‘So-Ho!’ when spying smaller prey, the usual ‘Tally-Ho’ was the cry when deer or larger prey was spotted. Green Park was part of this extensive area and retains its openness to this day. Today the only hunting taking place is ‘head-hunting’ for top media executives given that this area has become the beating heart of London’s creative side. Independent film companies, advertising firms, PR agencies and digital media companies have all found their perfect bohemian space here amongst the quirky bars, restaurants and shops. Unlike much of commercial London, Soho remains a vibrant and energetic area both day and night and does not tend to follow the same commuting patterns of other places in the city. This is why Soho is ideal for enjoying a date with our Soho escorts at Boss London escort agency as there is always somewhere open with plenty of action no matter the time of day or night.
The transition from woodland to workplace has taken the area through many different phases and influences but always Soho has been infused with a bohemian, artistic vibe. Heavily influenced by the first French settlers, Soho became known as the French Quarter. Soon Greek immigrants (hence Greek Street) joined them and an array of theatres, music halls, brothels and taverns opened which earned it a less than desirable reputation. A preference for beer and gin actually saved many people’s lives when the area became the centre of a Cholera outbreak in 1854 although given the squalor, surviving was of little consolation! The John Snow pub in Soho is named after the doctor who proved Cholera came from the water rather than the air which makes it a great place to enjoy a lunchtime tryst with our beautiful Soho escorts.
Music has always featured heavily in Soho. The café de Paris and the Hippodrome were the first places to feature jazz music in the early 20th century so this was the obvious location for the famous Ronnie Scott jazz club a few years later. Wardour Street was the place to go to see the likes of David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones although you did not need to go to a concert as they would often enjoy a break from recording by spending time in the numerous bars and cafes in Denmark Street. Today there is still the chance to see a famous face in the area however when you have booked your date with our escorts in Soho you are unlikely to be bothered about looking at anyone else!
Despite the area being a hive of activity, it retains an almost village feel. There are no skyscrapers or characterless shopping malls but plenty of individual, privately owned shops, cafes and bars which all have pavement tables, ideal for watching the world go by. On a sunny day most people pile into Soho square to enjoy the weather so why not enjoy a picnic in the sun with our Soho escorts before finding somewhere more private to fully appreciate the delights of your date. Call our London escort agency and make a date with our Escorts Soho for a fun filled day in this part of vibrant London.
