The essential edit of the 550+ hottest spots to eat, drink, shop, sleep, and hang out in London this spring & summer.
Written by a London-based team, the guide has a special focus on emerging local designers, independent boutiques, small neighborhood bars and fresh new restaurants that no other guide knows about yet.
Unique on the market, it is updated twice a year, so is at least a season ahead of the rest.
The guide features:
>A chapter analysing news & trends of the season.
New ‘hangouts’ from our in-the-know London friends: Petra Barran, founder of the itinerant street food market KERB; Rhonda Drakeford co-director of one of London’s edgiest shops, Darkroom; David Michon former managing editor of Monocle magazine and now on the team of Monocle’s sister company, Winkreative; and Justin Westover freelance photographer and creative director of Byronesque.
>A new bunch of must-see events for this period: exhibitions, gigs, club nights, festivals…
>A selection of the best hotels and other accommodation, from budget to 5-star luxury.
> ‘To Listen To’, a selection of recently released CDs from UK bands, to get you in the mood.
>A section dedicated to getting around: transport to and from and within London.
>A directory to everything from doctors and dentists, opening hours, to dry cleaners, tattoo parlours, beauticians and babysitters.
>Two useful indexes (alphabetical, by ‘tag’).
>Our unique ‘tagging’ system makes finding what you’re looking for super easy: for example ‘budget’, ‘open late’, ‘vegetarian’, ‘vintage’, or ‘wi-fi’…
>Space for your own notes.
