The Coffee Cabin
In the 1950s, tea was still the non-alcoholic drink of choice for most in the UK. In London, however, coffee bars were opening and becoming social centres for young people. Not needing an alcohol license, there was no restriction on opening hours and many featured live music.
Following this trend, soon after the opening of the new Town Centre, The Coffee Cabin opened at the south end of Queensway, on the east side of the street.
