How is the royal wedding likely to influence business for bars and eateries in central London?
Bridget Walsh, owner of the Harp, the recent winner of the CAMRA National Pub of the Year, says bank holidays are bad for her business in general. Her pub relies on office workers who go there for lunch or drinks after their daily hours.
For Notes music and coffee it’s an entirely different story. Its co-director Robert Robinson says they will have a great day, with a holiday atmosphere that is good for business. He hopes that the tourists will eat and drink in his café and buy the music they have on offer.
Both venues are located near Trafalgar Square, which is near the route of the procession for the April 29 royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
