The first restaurant at 38 Parkway was opened in the 1950s , known as George and Nicky’s. In 2001, the restaurant changed hands and building work began to convert the premises and make them suitable for a tapas bar.
The building work included extending the existing eating area and making it possible to accommodate up to 100 people per sitting and increase the natural light provided by the glass roof at the back of the restaurant.
The restaurant re-opened in January 2002 with the new name Jamon Jamon, and it soon became a popular venue for people living and working in the Camden area. Our Soho location is spread over two floors and although we are slightly off the main road, the entrance is 10 yards away from Charing Cross road, close enough to the main road but away from the noise of passing traffic. The restaurant itself is good size, bright and pleasant to eat in. The design is clean and minimal, reflecting our Camden site using traditional materials, wooden floors, stone washed walls and Spanish tiles borders, with metal Jamon Jamon signs protruding from the walls. Over the years, we have found that the best form of advertising is word of mouth recommendation, and over half of our first time customers visit Jamon Jamon because of a personal recommendation. Not only do people visit us because of a personal recommendation, but they keep on coming back, and in a recent survey, over a third of our customers have visited Jamon Jamon more than three times. Here are some of the things they said about us:
