No. 11 London

What's the Private Members Club all about? Come on in and find out. The No.11 is not only a luxurious boutique hotel but also a private club. That, of course, leads to questions. Private, after all, can mean a lot: Escape from a nagging wife or sherry in front of the fireplace, or both.   If you are curious now you won't be disappointed at the entrance: While the red heavy velvet curtains and the matching wallpapers are suspicious in the beginning, you will soon find out that visitors who register here will not be offered pole-dancing but limitless admission to the spa and gym. The club also stages wine tastings regularly here, or you can just hang out the noble way - so it's sherry in front of the fireside anyway and none of the notorious establishments. That would be strange anyway as rooms cost more than the usual hourly hotel.   Exquisite fabrics, noble canopy beds and luxury toiletries add up to create an unparalleled all-out Victorian atmosphere. Ancient English charm reigns supreme here everywhere: You get the noble variants of sausage, bacon and eggs in the morning, Earl Grey at the salon in the afternoon and a sandwich at the bar in the evening. But they will offer the private variant as well: If you feel like it you can also book a Private Dining. Double rooms from approx. 200 Euros per night.

Metropolitan

If you are notoriously sleepless, here's the solution: By offering that much Feng Shui, the Metropolitan Hotel will heal your Qi and make your energy flow again. After such a good night's sleep you will feel as fresh as a daisy in the morning and you might even see some from your large windows - many of them offering a view of Hyde Park.   The stylish toiletries by COMO will add to your freshness and you will feel fit for early morning exercises. Hyde Park's jogging map will come in handy here. Or the yoga kit available at your room. Ready for breakfast? At the White Room, a kind of glass pyramid, they offer you English Breakfast or a healthier alternative plus fruit juices, coffee or tea. If you want to plan a perfect day, ask the staff for advice. The hotel has an IT Butler, a Personal Shopper and a Personal Trainer, all of them ready to devote themselves to your needs.   Then there is time for an experiment: At the Nobu they will serve you a blend of Japanese and Peruvian food, i.e. Sashimi with Jalapenos, but what sounds weird tastes delicious. And as a crowning final have a cocktail at the stylish Met Bar as afterwards you will be ready for the Egyptian linen at your room - another gentle Feng Shui-type temptation. Double room from approx. 390 Euros per night.

The Stafford

A lot was going on under the roof of the London Stafford Kempinski Hotel in the past 100 years. The Carriage House in St. James for example used to put up the hot bleeds during those times when they weren't used by their owners - mostly aristocrats from the neighbourhood. The barn doors are still the same, and so are the names of the famous race horses. These are now assigned to the different rooms on the first level of The Stafford London by Kempinski Hotel which resemble famous scholars. The ship timbers that can be found in each room have done their duty in the 18th century on sailing vessels. What was going on in the secret subterranean James' palace of the wine cellar is unrecorded.   What we know, however, is that the Carriage House has twelve rooms and suites for their guests. 67 more rooms are located in the main building of the luxury hotel. Then there's also Stafford Mews which used to be mews and, in turn, brings us back to the horses. It now has 26 junior and master suites with separate entrance, and houses the new restaurant of the Stafford - The Lyttelton.

SIGHTS in London

Sights in London
Fireworks

Having a blast in November: This month marks the most famous fireworks in London when everyone celebrates Bonfire Night. We recommend you join in with thousands of Londoners and marvel at this unique event, for instance in Blackheath, why not? And when the sky explodes into the most beautiful colours, you should not forget three things: beer, sausages and a gaping mouth. The first you get everywhere on the site, the latter comes by itself. And an approving "oh!" has never been wrong anyway.   The occasion has tradition: The fireworks celebrate the 405th anniversary of the gunpowder plot when British Catholics attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and the King at that. However, the explosives were found in the cellar, the plot was prevented but pyromania remained. Today, the blasters can do their job quite legally. The celebration is threatened with extinction though as those who splash thousands of pounds in minutes every year ask themselves whether it's really worth it in times of crises. But resourceful Londoners are trying to prevent this and appeal for money. They even sell VIP places for the colourful event on E-Bay. If you win you get a seat of honour with excellent view - and you're allowed to marvel at the making of the fireworks, before it explodes.

London Eye

London has had its own Giant Ferris Wheel for ten years, stealing the show from Vienna with a height of 135 metres compared to the Viennese landmark of a mere 60 metres of height. But the Giant Ferris Wheel in Vienna's Prater amusement park is faster, one round-trip taking 10-12 minutes depending on the visitors that want to get on it at the bottom.   The London Eye won't stop but takes on visitors at full speed - and still it takes 30 minutes for one round-trip. You won't get bored anyway as on clear days the view takes in 40 kilometres. That means you can wave all the way from the glass capsules to Windsor Castle. In the mood for a stylish party? The London Eye can be rented for birthdays, weddings or Halloween, and if you feel like cuddling up you can also rent yourself a private capsule along with champagne and caviar. What the Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel and the London Eye have in common: they were both designed by Britons.   The occasion in London was obvious: The Giant Ferris Wheel, after all, symbolises the wheel of time and the movement into a new millennium, whereas in Vienna it was only the Emperor who celebrated an anniversary.

Hydrohealing

Standing in the centre of London doesn't mean you've connected with your own centre. The only remedy against the ongoing traffic noise and the never-ending hunts for fashion labels is fuelling your energy flow with water. Day Spa Hydrohealing has the right elixir against the hustle and bustle outside, cradling the inner peace in bottles.   Once you leave this place, you will feel deeply relaxed even in the longest tourist queue. And that's how it works: enter, close the door, leave the noise behind, and relax. And you need to be truly relaxed to face the acupuncture and colon irrigation treatments waiting for you. First, they prick you with needles, and then they put a hose into somewhere else?but all in a very exclusive atmosphere, of course. To round off this tortures, your skin is put into a glass to create a vacuum, the process being called cupping therapy. But if you have survived all this, you can relax during foot and face massages - to the benefit of the immune system. If you don't belong to the brave ones, you can still have yourself wrapped in foil to improve your body shape line or minimise cellulites with diverse anti-something treatments. While the bikini waxing is painful again, it adds the final touch though before you are sent back onto the street again: deeply relaxed and one with yourself.

SHOPPING in London

Absolute Vintage

The reference point for English shoe sizes: 5 equals size 38. If you want to test this we suggest you pop in the Absolute Vintage as its name holds what it promises: You will find any, truly any shoes of yesteryear.   From fashion's point of view, yesteryear means really old but the notion also applies to decades when bright yellow stilettos were seen as often on the streets as Margaret Thatcher on TV. Or when belts where narrow and silver-coloured but shoes wide and high. Or when boots were tasselled, for sure. From the fifties to the eighties you find anything here that was expensive then and is en vogue again: Top-Gun shades for watery eyes or shoes by Chanel, the latter of timeless beauty anyway.   If you throw another eighties party and you weren't able to afford the Gucci purse then, we suggest you make a detour to  the Absolute Vintage. And if you think that the stuff in your wardrobe will be out the next day anyway, you are wrong - and also wrong at this place. Simply wait for the next revival!

Unconditional

Does that sound familiar: You are invited to a party but don't know how to dress? Eventually you end up wearing jeans at the opera ball or dressed up in a suit at a punk's party, desperately holding on to your glass because you stand out once again. There's the solution: The Unconditional always fits - or doesn't fit at all but that's a matter of taste.   And that's how it works: Take sportswear, lady's fashion and business look, stir vigorously, sprinkle with some fine fabrics and uneven cuts and the result is a crazy blend just business enough for a meeting, casual enough for a walk and ladylike enough for a club visit. It's more difficult with men though as the style "sandal boots with short tracksuit trousers" is simply too eccentric. But Brad Pitt and David Beckham love it, and if they do?

Blitz

John Howlin is proud - of his extensive Swatch collection from the 80s. At the age of 13 he already preferred second hand military pants over hip jeans. This preference has stayed: with his partners he renovated an old furniture factory and since 2011 he displays his favourite pieces at the Blitz vintage department store - which very much resembles an art installation.   A yellowed book to your left, a smart suitcase on your right. Next to it: sun glasses, records and a cinema armchair. And in between? Venerable designer pieces by Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and garments from the American 40s and 50s. You won't be able to leave the store with burgundy brick walls and original floor boards very quickly, that's for sure. 9,000 square metres, spread over two floors are full of mementos, things never seen before and other eye catchers. Which makes it quite difficult to find John's watches.

EAT in London

Bubbledogs

When the head chef is not fully stretched in the Michelin starred restaurant, he opens his own venue. But not just any: at Bubbledogs on Charlotte Street in Camden, former Ledbury and Noma chef James Knappett and his wife Sandia Chang serve gourmet hot dogs with champagne and cocktails.   The two thereby follow the London-wide gourmet fast food trend: being served quickly, having a proper meal, and off you go. You cannot make any reservations at Bubbledogs, instead you can choose from ten different hot dogs, for example the BLT Dog covered in bacon, the truffle mayo hot dog served with caramelised salad, or the Jose Dog with salsa, pepperoni, guacamole and sour cream. But that's not it. From October on the chef himself will cook at the so-called kitchen table. Up to 19 guests will be able to observe the chef's preparations of selected menus around the stove. This - on the other hand - you can only experience with a reservation! 

Paradise

Paradise is a pub - a pub with a poet's soul, i.e. a successful blend of English cottage or France two hundred years ago. Made up of wooden panels and block strip flooring, the Paradise boasts classic portraits and golden mirrors. And at the entrance an angel is greeting you. Each room of the large pub is different; an interesting story hides behind each painting.   Was the empty golden cage ever home to a bird? Has anyone ever read the books at the library? And why the heck is there an angel at the entrance? We can answer the last question at least: The Kensal Green graveyard is located right across the pub, and the name of the pub refers to an ancient poem in which the poet describes the path to the hereafter via the graveyard. But relax: You won't find dark-robed folk and depressive music here.   The clientele is cosmopolitan but not decadent; arty but likeable. It is like the pub itself: colourful, enigmatic and popular. The perfect setting for calamari, chips and ale.

Wolseley

The former showroom for luxury limousines runs smoothly again today. In 2003 the Wolseley opened its doors to illustrious guests with a blend of high ceilings and expensive food. If you are keen on silver tableware and arrogant waitresses, they send you to Vienna - or to the Wolseley, where the goulash comes from Hungary, the salad from Nice and the guests from Planet Young and Beautiful.   If you are lucky, you are rubbing shoulders with some London celeb. If you are not so lucky, you might be underdressed and they seat you at a corner table close to the toilet. As compensation the menu is overpriced. Even when called Arnold Bennet, an omelette should not cost 10 pounds. Salad for 16 pounds is not made of gold (but fitting the price for gold) and Beluga Caviar for 125 pounds is still only made from fish eggs.   If you, however, don't mind the exaggerated prices, you should come here for the ambience's sake in any case. The chandeliers, the black pillars and golden ornaments perfectly match breakfast with croissant and coffee à la Mozart. If you miss what is typically English, you should stay until 5 o'clock tea is served.
