Cottons: This Caribbean Restaurant is found on Chalk Farm Road in Camden and is the best place to head if you want an all round drink and food experience. The venues owner Ian Burrell is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable men about the spirit in the UK and so you can guarantee that all of their meals will compliment your tipple perfectly.
