Hari Mountford

Hari is a PhD student, splitting her time between writing for Londonist, reading in libraries, typing away in cafes and exploring the city. Living in Covent Garden, art, culture and theatre is high up on her to-do list, as is commenting on the various bits of London that excite or annoy her. She has a particular soft spot for coffee and cocktails, and is a walking database of the best places to get said beverages. Pubs and bars that are hidden gems, independent cafes and bookshops off the beaten track are a source of constant fascination for this forever-student in search of the real London.
