You’ve traveled to London in high style, spent the day checking out the best sights (thanks to our recommendations here on Gilt Insider), and now you need the ultimate night out in Europe’s hottest capital city. Oh, and you need a plush bed at a fabulous hotel on which to rest your weary head at the end of the night as well? Gilt.com has you covered with suggestions, and Burberry has the perfect wardrobe for your night out on the town. Check out the Burberry: Your Passport to London event on Gilt.com on July 18, starting at noon ET, and peruse our picks of what to do and where to stay in London.
A hotel that combines fabulous food, fun drinks and chic rooms is a must in London. At the top of our list is the Grazing Goat, a charming, eight-room boutique hotel and delicious gastro-pub — the hottest food trend in London, of course — all in one. If you’re feeling more like a Sloane Ranger, head straight to the luxe Cadogan Hotel, where the interior is as posh as the Knightsbridge neighborhood in which it resides. Don’t miss the “Great Taste at the Cadogan”, where top food critics collaborate with head chef Oliver Lesnik on temporal tasting menus.
If you want to be in the thick of the Theatre District, check into the Covent Garden Hotel. The musical Chariots of Fire is just beginning previews and it’s sure to be a hot ticket, especially with Olympic fever sweeping the city! And if you get to the theater early, make sure to check out the Burberry Brit store in Covent Garden.
Or spend some time in buzzy Soho at the Dean Street Town House. The rooms are as high-design as the bar is clubby and warm — and we hear that Bloody Mary Sunday is a can’t-miss!
Have you worked up an appetite yet? Head to The Wolseley or The Delaunay for an experience that hearkens back to the best of grand European fine dining (both restaurants are from the team that brought London The Ivy and J. Sheeky, among others). If you’re more of an adventurous eater, try the “nose-to-tail” cuisine at the award-winning St. John Bar and Restaurant.
You really can’t visit London without having a pint or two (or four) at an authentic British pub! Head to The Punch Bowl, the second-oldest public house in Mayfair, which was given a new life by co-owner Guy Ritchie.
