MADMAP’s INSIDER GUIDE
Enthusiastic gypsies and collectors of "WOW", Agnese and Paola are the duo behind Mad Map, an online magazine that collects travel tips and interviews, seeking (and revealing) unique gems around the world. As tireless travelers themselves, Agnese and Paola bring DATS to London, uncovering the edgiest streets and recommending their favorite spots!
A delicious brunch spot hidden behind a black wooden door. You'll find yourself in a tiny, Parisienne and super chic mini market.
Come here for a real Japanese experience made of sushi and yakitori (skewers).
Hidden Mexican (Bodega Negra)
You’ll think you've entered a common sexy shop in Soho, but you'll end up eating tacos y ceviche while drinking margaritas!
An intimate place characterized by blue leather and dark wooden interiors. It serves a unique cuisine from Jerusalem influenced by the South of Spain, North Africa and Levant.
A Michelin starred restaurant, with delicate and innovative cuisine. P.S. Sometimes visiting chefs are invited to cook for a night!
Even if it's too obvious, it remains one of the you-can’t-miss spots in London for its unique toilets, interior design and cocktails.
All the Soho Houses around the world are just wow, but they are members-only. Our favorite is the one in Shoreditch, with its pool and rooftop.
Chiltern Fire House
Posh, cool and contemporary. It has that LA flair that comes from the celebrity spotting!
Experimental Cocktail Club Chinatown
3 sensual and sexy floors in Chinatown with a DJ playing, chandeliers and cool wallpaper.
H. R. Higgings
Appointed by Her Royal Highness (aka Queen Elizabeth II), it's a real gem where you can try unique coffee and tea. Tell the experts how you feel like today and they’ll get your tea/coffee ready - also depending from the weather!
The real place for the real jazz!
Besides Lulu's, Cuckoo and KOKO's party vibes, we love to go down the rabbit hole here in Hackney.
Newly opened in Shoreditch, we feel pure love for its clean lines and its color palette.
A classic in London. Chic and English, it embraces the London charm.
Artist Residence London
10 rooms that make you feel at home thanks to the rustic, and well-curated interior design.
Hipster and cool with distinguished design.
The Wallace Collection
One of the finest collections of art in a sumptuous palace. Don't miss the afternoon tea here, it’s as nice as the one you have at the Brown's Hotel.
The best night out combo is drinks at the Electric House - members only - and a movie at the Electric cinema (you’ll get to watch the movie on a huge bed)!
The Petersham Nurseries
Go to Richmond, explore the park, bike along the canal and have lunch in this enchanted place with greenhouses, flowers and romantic table settings.
Columbia road Flower Market
Sunday mornings are made for brunch at Bistrotheque and long walks down Columbia road. Get flowers and coffee on the go because next stop is Brick Lane, the kingdom of vintage.
The Conran Shop
For home decor and interior design lovers.
Dover Street Market
For fashion (and creativity) lovers.
If you’re feeling fancy this bespoke perfume boutique is the place for you!
