Eurythmics first met here
This is where Annie Lennox waitressed when Dave Stewart came in.
Location: 83-84 Hampstead High Street, Hampstead, NW3 1RE
Description: This was formerly called Pippin, the first ever vegetarian restaurant in Hampstead. In the sixties and seventies it attracted a creative, artistic clientele such as Bronco John, Peter Cook's homeless chat partner.
Musician, and one-time Joe Strummer collaborator, Pablo Cook managed Pippin in 1981-82.
In mid 1976, a young Annie Lennox took a job as a waitress at Pippins Restaurant and it was here that she would meet her future Eurythmics partner Dave Stewart.
Before Pippin's, it was called Cyrano's. Other frequenters included Peter O'Toole, Marty Feldman and Peter Sellers.
