Bar Termini Stories Episode 1 - Aperitivi in Soho

Around the time of World War II, London saw an influx of Italian immigrants, many of which opened their own businesses. Soho became home to many new Italian restaurants, bars and delicatessens, some of which still exist today.

Since opening Bar Termini, many faces, new and old have bought us interesting stories. We began to look into the history of our neighbourhood, particularly between 1930s -1970s. We were surprised to find a whole host of characters with stories to tell.

In this short series, we meet Elena Salvoni, John Billiet and Teresa Arrigo, who kindly share their memories of the time they spent in Soho.
