EAT

 

La Fromagerie
A delicious brunch spot hidden behind a black wooden door. You'll find yourself in a tiny, Parisienne and super chic mini market.

 

Jin Kichi
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!

 

The Palomar
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.

 

Lyle's
A Michelin starred restaurant, with delicate and innovative cuisine. P.S. Sometimes visiting chefs are invited to cook for the night!

 

DRINK

 

Sketch
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.

 

Soho House
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 - weather dependent, of course!
 
PARTY

 

606 Club
The real place for real jazz!

 

Moth Club
Besides Lulu's, Cuckoo and KOKO's party vibes, we love to go down the rabbit hole here in Hackney.
 
STAY

 

Leman Locke
Newly to Shoreditch, we feel pure love for its clean lines and its color palette.

 

Blakes Hotel
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.

 

The Hoxton
Hipster and cool with distinguished design.

 

EXPERIENCE

 

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.

 

Electric Cinema
The best night out for us is a few 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.
 
SHOP

 

The Conran Shop
For home decor and interior design lovers.

 

Dover Street Market
For fashion (and creativity) lovers.

 

Perfumer H
If you’re feeling fancy this bespoke perfume boutique is the place for you!
