A tea-serving coffee shop (what? Have you seen the price
of coffee here?) run by Screaming Lord Neville, a beloved
Soho resident and drag queen. Teas come in leaded
(caffeinated) and unleaded (decaf) varieties and there's
rumors of the occasional singing teapot.

Cheap, delicious and racially tolerant, what more could
you ask for? While you're there, try the famous Meltdown
Burrito, fabled to have the power to release endorphins and
remit sins. Your tastebuds should grow back. Probably.

Japanese-elfin fusion cuisine run by a trueblood called Gojira.
Sounds questionable, tastes divine. Sushi comes highly
recommended, just be sure to ask which Borderfish are safe
for human consumption.

user posted imageHARD LUCK CAFE user posted image user posted image user posted image
Located in what used to be a bank, Hard Luck Cafe has great
burgers and soup and low prices with an overall friendly
ambiance that rivals Taco Hell. Watch the outside blackboard
for specials (sometimes random, but always delicious).

Elfin takeout. Bad elfin takeout. It's cheap price is the only
thing going for it. Even so, considering the quality, it's a rip-off.

user posted imageHELL'S KITCHEN user posted image user posted image user posted image
Mood lighting, black furniture, red walls and a staff getup
involving cute little horns and hooves. This is a "high concept"
kind of place where slumming hillfolk and yeppies come to
sample that rough Soho fare. The spicy food and beverages
are excellent, but if you're on a budget or hate Yeppies, this
is not the place to go.

"More Bang for the Buck. More Spell For The Silver." Whether
you're interested, dabble are are a full-fleged wizards, Snappin'
Wizards' is the best place for all your magical gaget,
component and trinket needs. It's next door to Hard Luck Cafe
and across the street from Danceland.

It's not the oldest, most iconic, exclusive or trendy of clubs
and concert venues. But Danceland has a magic all it's own
that makes it one of the most fun places to spend an evening
in Soho. That and they decorate their blacked-over brick walls
with glowing, color-changing fairy dust graffiti, especially
entertaining whilst under the influence.

user posted imageTHE WHEAT SHEAF user posted image user posted image user posted image
A trendy music club where all the top bands and performers
play. If you pick a club by quality of music alone, the Wheat
Sheaf is hands-down the best choice. The club is located just
outside of Blood territory and is especially popular with elves.

user posted imageHOUSE OF THE ONION user posted image
A Trueblood hostel for Highborns down (by choice or by
chance) on their luck. Realm script is accepted and Elvish
is the primary language inside.

user posted imageTHE OBERON HOUSE user posted image user posted image user posted image user posted image
This establishment features young human workers for a
strictly elfin (and wealthy) clientele. Human children are
magically compelled to tell stories and secrets of their lives.
Many clients treat the human children like some kind of
performing animal in a costume. Escapees from the House
are malnourished, haunted and refer to it as "The Bad Place."
Many escapees end up in the Pack or the Bards.
