About Us

What is a Londoner?

Right, let’s resolve this once and for all as there is a lot of confusion about what a Londoner actually is.  Do you have to live in Zones 1-3?  Own an Oyster card?  Taken a fall off a Boris Bike?  Be blissfully ignorant of anywhere north of Watford Gap?

Well, here at ImALondoner.com, we’ve decided that a Londoner is anyone that lives, works, or plays within the confines of the M25.  If you disagree with our definition, get in touch via Twitter!

So now that’s settled, what’s ImALondoner.com all about?

Our mission is to become the number one source for Londoners looking for an incredible day out.

Created for Londoners by Londoners, ImALondoner.com is dedicated to helping fellow city dwellers find unique socialising opportunities, new openings, and reviews of bars and restaurants of all shapes and sizes.  And we’ve even included a handy event calendar so you can plan your week accordingly.  We pride ourselves on giving honest feedback and have visited EVERY venue we’ve reviewed.

Why don’t you have any bad reviews?

Our philosophy is that we only feature what’s hot in London.  We’re here is promote the best our great city has to offer, not to trash the bad places.  If we visit somewhere truly awful, we won’t write about it.
