I am a 29 year old interior designer visiting London from Sydney. I am just dashing through and haven't been back to London for a couple of years. Any must sees little bars, restaurants or boutiques that have popped up recently?

If it's shops you are interested in - try www.echochamber.com for a look at new retail - there has been a ton of stuff happpening in London over the past two years.
Carnaby Street is finally happening again - as is Westbourne Grove and Covent Garden is still fun - even Oxford Street and Regent street have some energy.
As for Bars etc - try Milk & Honey on Poland street - for late night member's bar style drinking.
Or pop down to Shoreditch for a good night out.
For a touch of trendy glamour try the Wolsey on Piccadilly - next to the Ritz.
Pizza Pomodoro is a tiny underground pizza parlour in uber posh Beauchamp Place near Harrods - it has been around since the sixties and has seen nearly every celeb in history pass through - nice food, decent prices - I saw Jerry Springer singing Elvis there the other month - it is a well kept secret.
