Fish Club
The Fish Club catapults fish & chips into the new millennium, transforming any fat into valuable Omega 3: The restaurant is no fish in troubled waters but the culinary catch of the day. Fresh sea fish is served to guests daily.   The small restaurant with rustic wooden benches has haddock, Dorade Royal and calamari on its menu (or in the aquarium and in between displayed on ice - so you can follow the food chain quite easily). The before/after picture is similar, however, once the fish is on your plate it comes with chilli sauce or garlic or hides beneath a cake. You should definitely not miss out on Fish Pie. And if fish and cake is not your thing anyway, try fish and chips instead - the classic for fast food fans, but much fresher here than elsewhere.   The chips taste better, too, the bread has a lovely smell, and the dish of the day is cheaper. A word to fish bones: If you are scared of the ricochet in your windpipe, have something else instead, for instance Chorizo Kebab.  Because it's not only a matter of fish bones at the Fish Club, after all.

Belgraves
The American Thompson Hotels expand into Europe. Their first overseas subsidiary, the Belgraves, landed at the beginning of February in London - with 85 rooms in the heart of Knightsbridge and adapted to the sedate British ambience. But the boutique hotel doesn't go completely without Bohemian style - given its parent company. Purple sofas and walk-in showers give hope. Like the LCD flat screens and iHome docking stations.   By tradition you bath in marble bath tubs and cover yourself with custom-made linen from luxury provider Sferra. Responsible for these exclusivities were interior designer Tara Bernerd and EPR Architects.   In the kitchen the Brit Mark Hix takes the reins. His Hix restaurant and his Mark's Bar already range among the fashion hotspots in town. That proves quite convenient since it's only a short hop to Kings Road and Sloane Street.

Tower of London
Here's a short who's who of noble prisoners: Edward V was here because his uncle wanted the throne. Anne Boleyn was here because of high treason, just as Catherine Howard. Jane Grey and Maria I. fought for the throne - Jane Grey lost the fight, was imprisoned and lost her head on the scaffold. Elisabeth I was also accused of high treason, however, got free and took over the throne.   Later, Henry Oldenbrug was imprisoned here for dangerous endeavours; and also the only American - Henry Laurens - was here, and much later on Josef Jakobs as well. Accused of espionage, the latter was the last candidate on death row in 1941. However, the nobles were not only killed in the Tower of London. Many lived there as well, at least up to the 17th century. Later, the kings and queens moved out and the armoury, the crown jewels and a few lions moved in - a birthday gift, so to speak, with warmest wishes. Conclusion: The Tower of London is a neat potpourri of what life is made up: life, death and diamonds.

Honest Jon?s
Rumour has it there are people who go on holiday, pop in the next record store and leave it only two weeks later. If you are such an enthusiast you should not miss out on Honest Jon's. Here, they sell any record that is launched onto the market.   Specialising on jazz, funk and reggae, you will also find an "outernational" department. At a closer look it reveals a creative name for ethno, i.e. music from countries that you've always wanted to visit yourself. As you will probably never get there anyway, you are buying a record on the topic in rainy London.   Apart from competitors Honest Jon's also sells its own cult label supporting, among others, the Trembling Bells, Katell Keineg or Africa Boogaloo. What is served here on the turntables is the rhythm that is en vogue at the moment.
