James Drury

James has lived in London for 10 years, equally split between the south and east of the city. A music, cooking and whiskey geek (ideally at the same time), he is equally at home at 'old man' pubs (where he can get a seat) or dodgy east end warehouses. With a particular passion for the unusual and hidden bits of London, his sense of curiosity has occasionally got him into trouble.
