Silver Arcade

October 17, 2013

Popped in to look at the newly refurbished Silver Arcade which had its official opening today.  Brought back happy memories of my early days in Leicester, hanging around in the café, second hand bookshops and Poly fashion students’  Enterprise Allowance start-ups.

It’s a lot smarter now although there’s enough of the old features left to make it recognisable – not least the narrow, vertigo-inducing top floor landing.  Not much open in there yet – a couple of posh frock shops and more to our point here, the chocolatier Cocoa Amore which is trading but I think just in soft launch mode right now. Coming soon will be The Atrium restaurant which will apparently be “international tapas and fine dining” and hopefully there will be more food-related stuff.

If you do you go down and have a look, watch out for my friend Charlotte’s shop Eskimo Blue, full of lovely ceramics currently also showcased in her Clarendon Park shop.
