We visited the place as soon as it opened last year and felt service was still slow and not up to the mark. However, it takes time for a new hotel to settle and now it is definitely one of my favourite places in Mayfair. Understated, hidden and not overpriced - this bar is excellent [...]
Tea at The Promenade
The best thing about being in The Promenade and having a cup of tea there is the leisure that is attached to it. You have all the time in the world (or it makes you feel like you do) and you feel cut off from the outside reality. Above all the Dorchester Blend tea is [...]

2nd Floor, Selfridges
Its been a while since I have written about a new coffee discovery in London but that is because I hadn't stumbled over one yet.

Fratelli is taking over London!
My affair with Fratelli started in university when I was in 2nd year and we discovered the new Cafe Fratelli that had opened right next to The Waldorf Hilton close to The LSE. 3 years down the line, there seems to be one in every corner of London. Sloane Square, Bond Street, Berkeley Square and it [...]
