Your guide to the best, independent fun!

Andi Oliver and Seb Holmes

The Local Buyers Club is fast becoming a go-to guide for those seeking dining and shopping experiences with more character, flavour, ethics and fun.

We just celebrated our first birthday and, as we looked through the massive list of wonderful businesses offering discounts to our members, we felt an enormous surge of happiness.

Whether you live in North or East London or are planning a visit, we dedicate our time to finding and promoting the best local and independent businesses – helping them compete against the big chains and making sure your experiences are high-quality and unique.

Two of the restaurants on our card are run by celebrity chefs Andi Oliver and Seb Holmes, who have each created their debut restaurants in this neighbourhood (Andi’s in Stoke Newington and Farang in Highbury Barn).

We offer discounts at the amazing Salut in Essex Road (rated among Time Out's top 50 London restaurants), WOLF (a neighbourhood Italian in Stoke Newington serving incredible food) and at Vivo in Upper Street (which has Islington’s coolest roof terrace).
