Our favorite places to stay, eat, see, and be seen across the pond. 


Where to stay

The Zetter Townhouse

My new home away from home in London, The Zetter Townhouse is a quirky and unique hospitality experience that can't be missed. The townhouse is unassuming and unpretentious - almost like you've wandered into an old ancestors home that hasn't changed for years. With dark, elegant, and inviting decor, the hotel compares to a rare, undiscovered gem in every way.

The boutique hotel chain has three locations in London, Marylebone and two in Clerkenwell. Book your stay through Mr & Mrs. Smith here.

Where to eat

Mae Deli

21 Seymour Place, 9am-9pm


Ivy Soho Brasserie

The recently opened outpost in Central London is the perfect place for a mid-show power lunch. Get their arancini - trust us.

Sexy Fish

Asian-fusion food with a twist (and a glamorous crowd), Sexy Fish is sprawling with incredible art installations and a raw food bar to satisfy any sushi cravings.

Berkeley Square House, 12pm-2am



Famously known for being one of the most Insta-friendly restaurants in London, Sketch is more than just a restaurant. Grab an afternoon tea in the all-pink Gallery or have lunch in the forest at the Glade.

9 Conduit Street open from 10am-2am




Brown and Rosie

From a colorful acai bowl to artisanal coffee, Brown and Rosie is a local favorite will make you you'll feel right at home. Their seasonal menu boasts avocado toast, homemade pastries, and smoothies that are perfect for days on-the-go.

Where to drink

Chiltern Firehouse 

Timeless and glamorous, the Chiltern Firehouse is the first to sell out come fashion week and the place to be seen after hours.

1 Chiltern Street, open all day


The ultra-elusive members only clubhouse is known as London’s hottest nightclub, if you can get in, for a fun night of drinking and dancing.

44 Berkeley Square, 8pm-3am


Mnky Hse

Come for the food, stay for the party. The South American fusion spot  only gets better as the night goes on, brining in DJs and live music as the night goes on. Order the chicken lollipops and the prawn tostada, then head over to the mirror room for the ultimate Instagram.

Where to shop

One of a Kind

A Portobello Road staple, One of a Kind is known for its incredible selection from vintage Chanel, Dior and Prada. They also offer a selection on 1st Dibs if you don't have plans to jump across the pond.
