Decadent hotel located on the High Holborn street. Highly recommend for business travelers who are looking for an authentic cozy experience with class.

Haymarket Hotel

Lovely hotel located in the hear of Soho. This gem offers it's guests gorgeous British comfort from hospitality to entertainment. Eat breakfast in bed or dine at their exquisite restaurant downstairs. Play bowling in the basement. Enjoy drinks on the rooftop terrace. If you come back too late and the main bar is closed, have drinks all night at not one, but two! honesty bars located on either side of the ground floor. Just note what you've mixed and it'll be added to your bill. Honestly fantastic.

Dorset Square Hotel

Most exquisite boutique hotel in London - Dorset Square Hotel has won our hearts over. With the classic Firmdale Hotel hospitality - this London gem welcomes you and makes you feel right at home in the big rainy town. Here one can truly embrace the city by staying in a classic London home repurposed as a boutique hotel. Their breakfast spread is delicious and the restaurant is decorated in a classic Firmdale British style - truly making you feel like you are at home in every way. The staff is super helpful in getting you set up for any excursions and for tourists - all the major attractions are close by.

Cheval Three Quays Residences

Right by the Tower Bridge sits a gorgeous modern hotel with rooms bigger than most London apartments. Each hotel room comes accommodated with a living room, incredible views of the Thames, London Tower Bridge, Shard, and the stylish Coppa Club downstairs. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony and if you stay here, plan some nights to stay in and play board games (as can be found in each hotel room).

Sanderson Hotel

Party hotel in the British capital. Comes highly recommended for visitors to the city who want to go out and go out late. The property has a wonderful bar that gets roped off on weekends, spacious modern rooms with basically no separators to the bathroom, and an adorable Alice-in-Wonderland inspired brunch spot with a garden to boast.

Places to eat

Sketch

Duck & Waffle

The Arts Club

Restaurant Ours

Hutong

Greenberry Cafe

Sketch

@globalnewyorker's top pick for London. Sketch is the ultimate experience with a gorgeous plush pink Wes Anderson-esk brunch spot, a forest-like side eatery, an interesting front bar area which gets rowdy at night, and best of all - the unbelievably wondrous bathroom design.

Duck & Waffle

@globalnewyorker's absolute favorite place in London. A classic for late-night eating, this incredible rooftop restaurant looking over the whole city is open 24/7 and serves incredible dishes with cocktails to pair (if you arrive before they stop serving alcohol each night). Waits for a table can be as long as an hour and restaurant is busy around the clock - so know what you're in for - but all is definitely worth the wait. Order DUCK & WAFFLE from their menu. Hands down the best dish.

The Arts Club

If you are lucky enough to score an invite to this members-only club - you'll have a lovely time. The restaurant serves amazing cuisine and has a beautiful garden in the back for the warmer months. There is also a fun lounge downstairs to definitely checkout post-dinner.

Restaurant Ours

An indoor garden gem with a second story lounge. Food or tables don't come too quick, but the restaurant has a super fun vibe, exposed brick walls, bar carts scattered around the dining room, and a lot of celeb appearances. Enjoy before a great night out.

Hutong

Grand Chinese restaurant located in the Shard - tallest European building. Food is spicy, wholesome, and commercially authentic. For drinks before or after dinner - the Shard also offers a variety of options - so arrive early or plan to stay late.

Greenberry Cafe

Amazing little eatery perfect for brunch a off the main touristic passages. Enjoy it on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and take in the Primrose Hill area as a new discovery of London.

Places to party

Mahiki

Albert's

Maddox Club

Cirque le Soir

Mahiki

Another Mayfair classic with creative cocktails and good conversations. African-styled spot is celeb sightings central, but feels oddly casual with a decent dance floor and loads of Top 40 tunes mixed in with good house music. Enjoy the fun and order a passion fruit Bellini.

Albert's

Members-Only incredible underground club where the British high class comes to party. Enjoy models & bottles the proper way at this London hotspot.

Maddox Club

Classic Mayfair nightclub for the bankers and beyond.

Cirque le Soir

Avant-guarde London club filled with wild performers, Top 40 playlist, and a mixed younger crowd. Come join the circus!

Places to go

Goodwood Revival

Goodwood Revival

Once every year, just a couple hours outside London happens an event so fabulous, it's worth making a trip to the UK just to see! Goodwood Revival is an iconic 3-day mega 50s/60s tribute with an airshow, multiple vintage car races & shows, fashion show, and so much more. From period-specific style to the performers - it is a sight for sore eyes! Highly recommend attending this top world event at least once in your life (if not come back year after year)!
