This enclave of well kept shops gathers independent labels, a florist's, flagship stores, international brands and boutique shops in one easy-to-navigate space. The shops line up next to each other in an open space bordered by Long Acre, Upper St Martin's Lane and Mercer Street. Shops include & Other Stories, COS, Pretty Ballerinas, The White Company and a massive three-storey Jack Wills as well as florist's The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers. The centre-piece is a spacious open courtyard with some greenery and scope for al fresco summer dining. Eating and drinking options include Indian cuisine at Dishoom , steakhouse Hawksmoor , Italian wine and cocktail bar Dalla Terra and t he excellent café/deli combo Bill's . Around the corner, on Mercer Walk, you'll find more food options at Maison Bab and Temper . Back at The Yards t here's also spa and massage specialist Relax and the Crazy Bear Members' Club (famed for its coconut mojitos).
