Other Criteria
We recommend the Other Criteria to all those that get hysterical when hearing the word "limited edition": The store is a bonanza for limits, something in between gallery plus fashion or design store plus photos. You'll find works by Damien Hirst and Phillip Allen on the walls, and T-shirts with prints by Ghada Amer or Tracey Emin on the coat hooks. And what can't be printed on a T-shirt or hung on a wall you'll find in between two book covers: You can also buy books on art.   Many items are unique and autographed which pushes up prices quite a bit. Vases by Eduardo Sarabia cost more than 7,000 pounds and are too fragile as a souvenir. But you can wear the bracelet by Damien Hirst for 17,000 pounds on your wrist - it won't cause excess luggage when you are departing. Bath towels by Peter Doig or Jeff Koons for 60 pounds are somewhat cheaper. True art connoisseurs won't do without them on the beach.   One thing for sure: You need to pop in here soon again because new limited editions, new unique items and other autographs are waiting to make your collection complete.

Town Hall Hotel
Apartments have advantages: You can cook yourself and save money on expensive restaurants plus you have more rather than limited space. But what if you are in the mood for service, spa or the attentive waiter anyway? Then you should check into the Town Hall as the hotel is both hotel and holiday apartment, offering the best of both: a restaurant, for instance, or even a Personal Trainer at the gym.   Design is not an issue here - there are so many styles, you won't find a favourite. The building is Art Deco, the pool is white marble, and the interior is Vintage, i.e. brown sofa with wooden feet of granny's era. But then you will be surprised by the ultra-modern bath in the glass cube with curtain. While the blend is bold, everything matches in the end, ranging from ancient hall to chic design hotel. That has its price - despite the little interesting, somewhat remote location: One apartment from 380 Euros per night.

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.

Brick Lane
Multi-cultural flair in London: If you want to see something else than Empire, you should visit Brick Lane.  The street has always belonged to newcomers from other countries: In the past to the Huguenots, then to the German Jews, then to the Irish and eventually to the people from Bangladesh, the latter still dominating the street scene with their curry restaurants. You can taste this colourful mix.   All the restaurants offer delicious and rather cheap food, but if you want wine with your food you should bring your own: Some restaurants don't have licences for alcohol, but tolerate if you bring your own. If this is too complicated for you, you can increase your alcohol levels at one of the Brick Lane nightclubs. The famous clubs 93 Feet East and The Vibe Bar offer good drinks and round-the-clock dancing.   But also the artists and designers have discovered Brick Lane, so boutiques are mushrooming in the lively quarter. You can buy the hottest vintage fashion here. Also included in the programme: markets, festivals and the best graffiti in town. You will for sure not get bored in Banglatown!
