I like to take tea at Claridge’s, or go for a cocktail in the Claridge’s Fumoir… I also like a visit to Ladureé at Harrods if I can’t make it to Paris for the real thing, and I love dining at The Wolseley or the Art Deco room of China Tang at The Dorchester. Mahiki can be a fun place to have a tropical drink, but may be a nightmare at the door on weekends. China White and The Met Bar are other famous places to have drinks, and The Savoy has monthly burlesque performances and excellent cocktails.
I like to shop Coco De Mer for sensual lingerie and the naughtiest boudoir accessories. Fetishists, I recommend you drop in on Atsuko Kudo for fabulous lace-printed latex lingerie (she does all Lady Gaga’s latex) and Vivienne Westwood’s shop for rubbery high heels. You could also see if Torture Garden is running any club events while you are in town.
I have lived in London for years, so if you are visiting and would like more tips, just ask- I would be happy to help 🙂
