"Life is a question and how we live it is our answer". Gary Keller
There might be no place in the world bursting with more cute, trendy, and Instagram-worthy places than London. And thank goodness for that, because we need ‘em! If you are looking for some photo inspiration and how to spend a day in London like an Instagram pro
I’ve culled the masses and brought you a few of the very best of London.
BREAKAST AT HARRY’S
Inspired by its sister restaurant, Harry’s Dolce Vita, Harry’s Bar brings something of a unique blend of traditional Italian dishes and signature weekend brunch.
MEWS OF MAYFAIR
A unique hideaway, tucked away in one of London’s historic courtyards with a choice of different bars situated around the chickiest courtyard. From informal catch ups to private dining, there is a something to tickle most fancies, along with a fair share of quirks.
To find it takes a well-directed pootle down the cobbled backstreets of New Bond Street, but its discovery is a pleasant one.
The outfit lives on both sides of a tiny alleyway, onto which their popular pizza restaurant, Mayfair Pizza Co., spills out onto all year round (cosy up by a heater for a winter bit to eat).
For a more casual dining affair head to the Brasserie, serving up contemporary European and British fare – before night owls can head to the Mews’ subterranean Lounge to dance the night away.
STROLL THROUGH HYDE PARK
Hyde Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks and covers an area of 350 acres, more than enough to hit your daily number of steps!
THE ICONIC DORCHESTER HOTEL
Discover true luxury at The Dorchester Hotel, one of London’s most iconic 5-star hotels even if it’s a few snapshots outside this iconic building. How good are these for your Instagram?!
LAVISH FINE WINE AND SPIRITS ROOMS AT HARRODS
From Claret to Chablis, The new Harrods wine rooms were designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, taking inspiration from 1920s decor, and include a marble patterned floor and limed oak shelving.
In the new fine wines room, wines are categorised by terroir, to help customers explore wines from regions they previously hadn’t considered, according to a statement from Harrods.
There is also an ‘aroma table’ with scents to guide customers through the flavour profiles of different grapes. The ‘aroma tables’ featuring trumpet-like devices that, with the squeeze of a rubber bulb, like an old-fasthioned perfume sprayer, delivers the trademark smells of key noble grape varieties, from Chardonnay to Syrah and Pinot Noir.
BEAUTY OF SPRING BLOSSOM
PRE-DINNER DRINKS AT THE SWANKY SEXY FISH
Swanky, art-filled setting for robata-grilled fish, raw-bar items & more! This place has been designed to shriek: "Look at me!", the look and feel is mid-century glamour and opulence.
This place, as Harrod’s wine rooms, was designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and decorated with art by Damien Hirst, Frank Gehry and Michael Roberts.
If you live London or planning to visit London this place is a must! Sexy Fish is a ludicrous restaurant with a ludicrous name in a ludicrous town!
DINNER AT AQUA KYOTO, HIGH-END JAPANESE WITH A BIT OF RAZZMATAZZ
A sister to Hutong and Aqua Shard over at Renzo Piano’s London Bridge… an innovative and contemporary Japanese restaurant with a stunning ultra-glossy designer roof top terrace in the heart of the west end.
This place is like a tranquil island of booze-laced bliss in the chaos of Central London.
