MY GAP YEAR 2007/8THE EMBASSY
I am on my second from last shift at work today, and it doesn’t feels as weird as I thought it was going to be, I don’t think the penny has dropped that I’m not returning back to work for another year.
I have also left the infamous Embassy for good. Over the past 6 years The Embassy has been a great house and somewhere I’ve called home in London. Set in Kensal Green
Over the years it had a reputation at the BBC for being a party house, a house of carnage. When word got out about the after show parties we threw I really did have people come up to me asking if they could come round, hang out and see what the fuss was about. I’m sure the Embassy will be talked about for years in the hallways of the BBC, and I’m sure one day it will have one of those blue plaque you see on the front of houses all over London that had famous people living there.
When I come back in a year i’d love to move back to the Kensal Green but i’m not sure it will be the same, Kensal Green is a great place to live and has got so much better in the last couple of years (Minus the stabbing and shootings which seems to be escalating everyday). The pub and bar scene has exploded in recent years and that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?
The Masons Arms – One of the best pubs in North London.
The Lodge – Boast the only Balearic garden in NW10.
Paradise Bar – Sunday Roasts rock there.
William IV – Great beer garden.
We had a lot of people staying in the Embassy over the years and I can safely say i have made some great friends over the years.
A massive thanks to all the people who came round over the years and made the Embassy what is was……. A crack den without the crack.
THE EMBASSY: 2001 – 2007
