Yuri, avoid by all means the restaurants around Leicester Square! Although there are lots of theaters around there. Some great eats in the Soho area. Mezzonine, for example, is trendy and hip (at least 2 years ago).
Mezzo on Wardour st. will convince you that modern British cuisine is not an oxymoron! It's on two floors and has a huge open kitchen. It has three bars as well. This I highly recommend. It can be noisy though...
Veeraswamy on Regent St. (Mayfair) has great Indian. Bam-Bou has incredible French-Vietnamese fare. That one I enjoyed a lot.
As for a jazz club, I've been only to 100 Club on Oxford. The musicians were Americans when I was there.
Going to theater wouldn't be bad either but that might bore your clients...
And if you're on an expense account, you should definitely try any of the Conran restaurants. I've been only to Cantina del Ponte (near the Tower Bridge, Italian cuisine, with a great view), Le Pont de la Tour, and Zinc Bar & Grill (informal and funky).
Pharmacy on Notting Hill Gate lives up to its name. Pan-European cuisine served in place that looks like a drugstore downstairs.
Have fun in Londinium!

| welcome to london! || Dec 2, 2003 |
it depends where in london you'll be staying, but the following site should be useful anyways, as you can just enter the post code and find the nearest what-ever-you-need ...
russian restaurants and other related information are listed here:
i've only been to 'nikita' in earls court as it's not far from me, and the one in richmond where i used to live before. the one in richmond with balalaika above the front door was not bad, but richmond is on the outskirts of london, mind you.
http://www.visitlondon.com/ - is keyword searchable, as is - http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/
and then there is always
i could also recommend some nite clubs / venues, but i have this sneaking suspicion that we have very different tastes
hope you find something that suits you and your clients. enjoy!
