ALL Apprentice viewers instantly recognise the iconic cafe where glum candidates are set to discuss their failure after losing a task.
The scene of many a heated post-task debrief, the grey looking greasy-spoon is forever associated with misery and failure. But on the bright side, you can visit it… here’s how.
The Bridge Cafe is the scene for the Apprentice’s losers’ debrief after unsuccessful tasks Where is The Apprentice losers’ cafe?
Fans of the show may be surprised to hear that these gloomy scenes are actually filmed in two London cafes.
The first, and less used cafe, is La Cabana 2 in Willesden, North-West London.
The second, which is more commonly associated with those famous moments of dread, is The Bridge Cafe, in West Acton, West London.
The full address is Bridge Cafe, Westfields Rd, London W3 0AP.
It’s owned by two chaps Frank and Gerry and is a far cry from the glitz and glamour of the City and Canary Wharf.
The simple spot comes complete with tiled walls and bars on the window.
