“Oasis of residential elegance”

There’s something grand about arriving through an imposing archway and pulling up in an Edwardian courtyard to be greeted by dapper doormen. And to think your journey’s only just beginning. In a former life, this was HQ for an insurance company – now, the handsome hotel goes to great lengths to guarantee your London experience is as memorable as the city itself. Whatever the day’s adventures bring, you’ll be pleased to return to residential elegance – but not before a nightcap at the jazzy Scarfes Bar.

I love Maison Francois for lunch, it is hard not to order multiple appetizers and main course as the choices are tough however you must leave room for the dessert trolley! Then in the evening I head to Louie, the team there are superb and the multi-floored destination means you’ll find the right spot to settle into for the evening.

Whether it be the local pub or the world’s best bar, we have it. If you’re into world-class cocktails, a favourite of mine is Tayer + Elementary – the back moodily lit bar is perfect for savouring the complex cocktails and of course the Sando.

Annabel’s or the Groucho club, two very different venues, it all depends on the mood of the evening – is it Mayfair or Soho? Both are private member clubs that really do come alive in the evening – get your dancing shoes on.

The British Museum is a must, it’s super close to Rosewood London and has a very eclectic line-up of rotating exhibitions. Covent Garden is also revitalised, so quite often I wander over there and explore what is new. From there you can see the re-vamped Royal Opera House or find the coolest little bars and hottest restaurants. If you have time, check out all the new stores, too – especially Petersham nurseries or the fab Tom Ford store.
