Castano Lounge is in Ealing Broadway, looking out onto the High Street, just up from Ealing Studios and leafy – and chestnut-y – Walpole Park. Our fetching blue and nut brown tiled front has lovely big floor to ceiling windows that open right up onto a cosy front terrace. Inside, our space stretches right back to some cosy corners with a quite nutty decor – all exposed concrete and flock wallpaper. And these nut references? Our name means Chestnut in Spanish, in reference to our handsome neighbours in the parks around. Tenuous, but a little better than Broadwano Lounge.
Separate interesting fact: As well as making some of the loveliest British films ever, Ealing Studios also released Shaun of the Dead, and the Spice Girls’ Mama video was shot there.
