Mandeville Hotel London


The Mandeville Hotel in London is a great place to stay, shop and enjoy your visit in London.  The hotel is centrally located near Marylebone High street and short distance from great shopping and nightlife near Selfridges and Bond street.  The Tube is a few blocks away also.  The hotel has great sense of style and design without breaking the budget.  We highly recommend checking them out.


We were very impressed with the Hotel’s classic style by leading interior decorator Stephen Ryan.  His taste blends the elegance of classical style with modernism.  The hotel has a very accommodating and welcoming feeling that feels like home away from home.  The hotel staff was very helpful as well, they were always ready to assist us with any questions.


The actual hotel rooms were spacious and very clean and the beds were very comfortable with a new feeling to them.  The bathrooms were fancy and stocked with CO. Bigelow Apothecaries.

Stepping out of this hotel, you are in the centre of London’s coolest hotspot Marylebone with the High Street on the right, Bond Street and Soho on the left. Whilst right in the centre, there is no disturbance of noise and getting everywhere can’t be easier


For a bit more per night you can stay in the apartment style Terrace Suite on the top floor with views and patios for dining over the rooftops of London.


We really enjoyed the food and drinks at the Reform Social & Grill whether early in the day or late at night they were very accomodating and the drinks were awesome!  Below is English tea time for men wow! Mandeville was the pioneer of the gentleman’s afternoon tea, and they offer a free-flowing prosecco and champagne option as well.


We had great drinks at the Reform social and grill and it was a very pleasant experience.  The bartender has amazing mixology talents, as well as a classic cocktail list   Highly recommended!

Hempel Hotel – London


img_6177Review and Photos by The Cobrasnake

The Hempel is a really quiet hotel located in Paddington. It’s far away from everything. When you are inside it feels really relaxing. The reception is very quiet and clean -as is the rest of the hotel. The room was completely white. The bed was so big you could comfortably sleep 4 people. Perfect for a last minute late night orgy. Its kinda hard to find things because everything is located behind hidden doors which are also white. Really clean and fresh. Amazing shower and bath tub. A Killer view of the park. Don’t expect anything amazing from the room service, we called at about 2:30 am and the only thing they would send up was a
cold cheese sandwich and it took thirty minutes. The breakfast was Amazing. Free internet, always a plus. A real nice place. Not for young people. Everyone I saw at breakfast – in the eleavator – was older and mature. A good hotel for a simple business man.

The Wellesley Hotel – London


Wellesley Hotel, London.The Wellesley is a gorgeous luxury boutique hotel situated in London’s exclusive Knightsbridge area. What was formerly an iconic jazz bar in the 1920′s is now a beautifully art deco inspired hotel landmark. The hotel features an indoor/outdoor lounge, a restaurant and a very attentive staff. We spoke with the Wellesley’s Chief Concierge Jim Cameron:

Tell us a little bit about the history of the Wellesley hotel:
The Wellesley is a 1920s Knightsbridge boutique luxury hotel with a famous musical heritage. The building, which began its life as the Hyde Park Corner underground station by architect Lesley Green, is also the former home of iconic jazz and cabaret venue, Pizza on the Park. It reopened in December 2012 as an intimate luxury hotel.

The ground floor public spaces comprise of a number of small intimate spaces, centred around the beautiful colonnade lobby. These include the Jazz Lounge, Oval Restaurant, The Crystal Bar, Cigar Lounge, The Humidor and two outdoor Cigar Terraces.

The Wellesley bedrooms and suites are situated over seven floors, and are comprised of 29 suites, seven deluxe bedrooms and the Wellesley Penthouse suite.

Tell us about the area around the hotel:
The Wellesley is ideally located in the heart of Knightsbridge, overlooking Hyde Park. Within minutes of the hotel, guests can enjoy the sophisticated shopping district of Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and other world-renowned designers. Iconic buildings and cultural attractions include the Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace and the V&A.

What are some unique services that are offered by The Wellesley?
The Wellesley is committed to offering an exceptional service. From the moment of booking, the team at The Wellesley can manage any requests to prepare the room to compliment it’s guests’ needs, for example, by creating a gym or nursery in one of the rooms. The Wellesley makes careful note of guests’ food and drink preferences to ensure their mini-bars are well stocked to their liking.

A 24-hour-butler-service is available to handle any request, large or small, for any of The Wellesley’s guests. Guests can also enjoy the use of The Wellesley’s Rolls-Royce drop off service for local engagements.

What sets this hotel apart from others in London?
The Wellesley is London’s first boutique-grand hotel and each room has been uniquely designed with contemporary touches and artwork while paying homage to the building’s art deco past with stunning interior design.

The Wellesley Penthouse Suite is particularly special and occupies the entire sixth and seventh floors of the hotel, with four bedrooms, lavish bathrooms and lounges, a private staircase and a terrace offering incredible views over Hyde Park and the city skyline. The Penthouse ensures that guests can relish captivating grandeur and uncompromising service in a private space amidst the glamour of Knightsbridge. It is a versatile space, each guest can choose which rooms they have access to, if they don’t wish to make use of the entire space. This makes it ideally suited to adapt to guests’ needs and accommodate families, couples, or individuals.

The Penthouse Lounge area features a table for board meetings or private dinners, fireplace and plasma screen, therefore it is a popular choice for business travellers. It pulls in the luxury elements from across the hotel. For example, The Penthouse Lounge has its own humidor and guests can pre-order cigars ahead of their visit. The Wellesley also keep any cigars left over and re-stock the humidor next time the guest is in town. Guests are able to smoke in the Penthouse Lounge.

Who is the interior decorator/designer behind the hotel?
Fox Linton Associates were appointed as interior designers to take the project to completion – from empty shell to a full interior fit out. Working closely with the full design team, the project took just over four years to complete, with hand over to the client in December 2012. The design acknowledges the potent association with the building’s decadent jazz musical legacy and has been beautifully restored with a modern take on the art deco style. It now offers contemporary luxury and traditional glamour in one of London’s most prestigious locations, immediately adjacent Hyde Park on Knightsbridge.

Hache Burger – London


IMGP5767Considered one of the best places to get an amazing burger in London, Hache Burger is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Suzie and Berry Casey. What started out as a family run creperie in Camden eventually evolved into Hache Burger, with the motivation being to offer Londoners a quality burger sourced from the freshest local ingredients -a rarity at the time. Hache has been awarded “Best Burger in London” by Time Out amongst other awards from local and international food writers, along with a dedicated following in the city.

1 Tell us the concept behind Haché Burger Connoisseurs?
When we first launched Haché in Camden, near where we live, (we’re just coming up to our tenth birthday), there were Gourmet Burger Kitchen ‘look-alikes’ springing up all over the place, so we knew we had to be different.

We have three daughters who moaned that there wasn’t anywhere local where they could eat really good, simple food at reasonable cost, in an interesting dining environment.

I wanted to produce a high quality burger offering, but Suzie, my wife/ biz partner wanted to create a chic, comfortable setting with massive mirrors, chandeliers and fairy lights where our daughters would feel as much at ease as their burger loving boyfriends. Suzie got her way, and the Haché brand was born.

2 Why did you make the career leap from art direction from restaurateur?
After I left advertising I started a corporate design practice. One of my clients was an ambitious young restaurateur operating at the haute cuisine end of the market who, within a couple of years of starting out, won a number of Michelin stars. I was seriously impressed with his ‘modus operandi’ and his relentless pursuit of excellence, and I loved the buzz of his restaurants. We had already established very popular crêperies and bagels concepts where quality was paramount, in and around London when we got an opportunity of a site in grungy Inverness Street in Camden.

3 What makes Haché different from other burger joints in London?
We had a very clear vision of what we wanted the Haché brand to be from the start. We knew we had to think ‘outside the box’ as there was already a number of burger concepts springing up all over London; many with big money behind them, so we had to be different. We eschewed the idea of having customers queue at a front counter. Instead we offered waiter service, a wide, creative selection of burgers, including vegetarian options, chicken, lamb and even a duck burger as well as imaginative Chef’s Specials. We introduced tasty starters and some pretty amazing puddings.

Hardly a simple formula for a business model, but one that has kept everyone, both FOH and our kitchen people challenged and interested.

4 Although the origin of burgers are German, the burger seems to be closely knit to American food culture. How does Haché set out to offer a quality burger in London.
It is indeed generally assumed the ‘burger’ originated in Germany, but I must say I become a firm fan while traveling widely in the USA, and having visited Millers in Chicago, I felt it would be great to bring a premium quality UK beef burger to London.

5 What is your personal favourite burger on the Haché menu?
I must say the current ‘Chef’s Special’, (the Cheese Squeeze) is pretty awesome. Even though I try to sample a different menu item every time I eat in a Haché, I’ve always loved our ‘Blue Cheese’ burger. If like me, you love Stilton, it’s a difficult one to resist.

6 How do you feel that Haché is more romantic than a typical burger joint?
The simple answer to that, is we have never seen ourselves as a ‘joint’. Time Out, in its very first review wrote, “Haché is a proper restaurant, which just happens to serve burgers. You could even come here on a smoochy date.”

That about summed us up.

Great Northern Hotel – St. Pancras, London


Exterior_Curve_715_429_s_c1Hotels these days are really pushing the boundaries in terms of offering more services, outlandish design and mechanized service. I’m glad to say that Great Northern Hotel holds their standards to a high point, without sacrificing anything in the process. Now I know this might be getting a bit too far off base on semantics for an introduction. Yet, I’ve visited plenty of hotels of late where the staff seems terrified of the management (and thusly, me), hotels where I can get a loan for a new house with the remote on my TV and hotels where I feel like I need to know how to play a Theremin just to run the water. What do these places all have in common you might ask? They all strive to improve the guest experience, but all their excess, fail me. I think these people have forgotten that you come to a hotel to relax, not to feel like you’re washing your hands in a Bjork video. So I was relieved and impressed to see that The Great Northern Hotel’s efforts to maximize comfort did just that, without clutter. When I walked into my cozy room, I was happy to see that there was nothing inundating about it. The decor is low key yet elegant, but more subtle. This is the theme throughout the hotel. There was something very warm and peaceful about the pale green walls in the Cubitt Room and the re-occurrence of that color in the bathroom is a nice touch. There are three room styles at GNH: Cubitt, Wainscott and Couchette. The rooms are not large however they are designed in a way that’s not stuffy.

Walking around the hotel I talked with a few of the staff of varying positions. I was pleased to see consistency in the balance of personable and professional. I really dislike being in a place where the staff is on edge or discouraged from engaging with the guests. When I met the managers, both day and night, I could see how the tone was so appropriate. For such a simple thing, so few people really get this harmony right.

My bed was a deluxe dream castle composed of fine linens, soft pillows and a fluffy down comforter that seemed to breathe with me as the short night shed its cloak. As much as I feel like sleep is in itself kind of decadent and I really don’t do a lot of it. So it felt fantastic waking up after 5 hours and feeling like I’d slept for 5 days. But then who would want to sleep the morning away when a sumptuous breakfast was waiting in the hotel’s restaurant Plum + Spilt Milk? The hotel’s restaurant also features lunch and dinner with excellent menu options and gorgeous decor.

Located right within St. Pancras International, the hotel is located at the gateway to Europe. When GNH first opened its doors in 1854, the passengers of London flocked. The hotel stood at the centre of London’s revolutionary new age of steam and GNH is actually considered to be the world’s first ever railway hotel. Refurbishment took place over the last few years and the hotel re-opened it’s doors in April 2013.

Another great touch to mention is the fact that there are pantry rooms located on every floor of the hotel. The pantry includes a selection of coffee, teas, cake, and magazines.

Great Northern Hotel, you get it in so many ways and I thank you for getting it. After staying at resorts that feel like Hemingway’s estate sale and hotels that look like house-of-the-future mockeries, you at long last have delivered an escape from both hectic city life and the hospitality industry’s theme excesses. I look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Jumeirah Carlton Tower – London


JUMEIRAH CARLTON TOWER HOTEL 4You really should do this more often, old chap. Sipping a glass of champagne in your classically luxurious room at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, you contemplate dinner at the hotel’s venerable Rib Room, famous for its Aberdeen Angus beef. Is there time to pop into the Victoria & Albert Museum or wander through Hyde Park? Of course – they’re both minutes away.

With 218 rooms and suites on 18 floors, chic Jumeirah Carlton Tower offers commanding views of Central London. One great place to take it all in is a top-floor Luxury Suite overlooking the gardens of Cadogan Place. Decorated in leather, silk, and dramatic fabrics, this gem has a Jacuzzi spa bath and a crystal chandelier in the bedroom. Oh, and the British artwork gracing its walls was specially commissioned.

The following illustrations were created by London based artists, Achraf Amiri and Domenico Cordua who have spent time at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower and both speak of the hotels classic luxury and comfort with his illustrations:

Kitchenette – London


2e7b0059_laPutney is home to the first London based Kitchenette restaurant, following the success of various other locations: many are in Turkey, with others operating in St. Petersburg, and Baku. This lively venture serves an all-day Mediterranean style menu – breakfast, lunch and dinner – with Turkish influences.

Kitchenette’s interior simplicity is appealing, which brings the attention to the table, the quality of the food: a mark of many fine eateries.

For starters my guest and I ordered the Trio of Bruschetta and the Buffalo mozzarella. The bread was fresh, buoyant, topped with finely chopped black olives, roast peppers, and wild rocket. The mozzarella served with flavour-first heirloom tomatoes with pesto was also a good choice.

Dishes vary from Marinated Artichoke Salad, Falafel, Lamb Kofte, to dishes such as Beef Carpaccio and the Kitchenette Burger, which is a popular choice. The Kul Basti dish I ate, as a main was superb: tender strips of lamb, cooked rare and served with sautéed potatoes and steamed spinach. A well-balanced plate made better with a glass of red plonk, which the staff helpfully obliges in guiding your selection.

My guest went for the fillet steak, cooked rare, and replaced the usual chips with a brilliantly buttered mashed potato. The porcini sauce and large grilled mushroom complimented the dish perfectly.

The desserts menu is simple and effective, with the cardamom chocolate mousse is a fine way to end any evening. Kitchenette is a welcome addition to Putney’s highstreet: it’s reasonably priced, well thought out food, and good welcoming service will probably see your return before long.

Acciuga – London


acciuga 5472 outside-crop-v1Sitting quietly on Kensington High Street is an Italian restaurant named Acciuga (anchovy), and judging by its unassuming facade you’ll be forgiven for missing to note anything special.

This restaurant however is the brainchild of young Guglielmo Arnulfo – head chef and owner – a man who states a clear intention to offer a traditional yet experimental menu from his native Liguria, with influences from Piedmont and Tuscany.

Arnulfo gets fired up about the authenticity of other ‘Italian’ restaurants serving a dull Bolognese, but overall is indifferent to any menu other than his own. “My restaurant doesn’t serve that, if that’s what people want, then they can go elsewhere.” He has a point too, that’s not his market.

For starter I ate the Acciughe Impanate, lightly breaded anchovies with a fresh and well-balanced tomato sauce, presented in small pull-top tin. It’s little details such as this that exhibits a clearly thought through experience: a good balance of aesthetic interest. My guest ordered the tradional Recco’s style Cheese Fococcia, which was tasty and freshly baked.

The next course was Trofie al Pesto, the distinct basil flavour that many are familiar with. But this trofie pasta was fresh and served with crisp green beans and truffle oil, which kicked any familiarity far behind us. The presentation of dripped pesto dotted around the edge of the plate was more charming than nauseating. At this point we were impressed: the food was excellent and the staff were attentive.

For desserts my guest and I ordered pistachio and cappuccino based sweets which were both brilliantly presented with a fine mesh of chocolate speared in the top. The pastry beneath the freshly ground pistachio was crisp, and light enough to enjoy the natural saltiness of the nuts. Dessert can be a tricky course to get right for two people not overly keen on sweet, but they were the most enjoyable part of our Acciuga experience.

Acciuga in Italian means anchovy, but to anyone who has acquainted themselves with Arnulfo’s Kensington spot it probably means some of the best Italian cuisine inside the M25.

Fabric 14th Year Birthday Party – London

Tags: ,

fabric 1I had the honor and privilege to attend one of London’s most exclusive parties, the 14th Birthday Party of Fabric. Not only was I lucky enough to be in London at the time, but also I was grateful to attend this colossal party with so many amazing DJs from all around the world.

After recently returning from Berlin, it was great to see many awesome Berlin DJs at the Fabric party. Marcel Dettmann, Tama Sumo, and Cosmin TRG were a few big names on the lineup. I was super excited for this party and to finally dance the night away at Fabric, which is rated for being one of the best clubs in the world.

As I entered the club, I was one of thousands of excited kids ready to dance the night away. The first DJ I saw was London’s own Fabric resident named Terry Francis. He pumped the crowd up which started the evening out nicely.

Next, was Shed from Berlin. I’ve heard Shed mix everything from electro, dubstep, to techno. Shed played more techno for this party and had a great set. Check out his album titled “the Killer.”

As an avid electronic music fanatic and world traveler I came to Fabric alone. The crowd was great and quite welcoming. I met people from Italy, Russia, and Denmark. We shared dances, drinks, and I met a friend who was excited as me to witness the Marcel Dettmann five-hour set!

My new friend and I were quite amped, as Berlin’s resident Berghain DJ named Marcel Dettmann started his long set. After just returning from Berlin, my newfound love of Berlin and Berlin techno DJs has strengthened quite a bit. I was excited for Dettmann as well as the other Berlin DJs. Marcel Dettmann had an amazing performance and was the highlight of the evening.

I traveled alone, but one of the amazing things of this European trip was the awesome people I met. I was lucky to have a friend I met in Berlin at Berghain meet me at Fabric. She introduced me to another one of Berlin’s great DJs Tama Sumo. She ripped the turntables up and we were dancing away to her funky techno jams.

One of the last and best performances I witnessed was Ricardo Villalobos. As the wee hours of the morning approached, Villalobos shaked up the crowd for a finale of the evening for my friends and I. However, some party monsters kept going and going.

The Fabric 14th Birthday party went all weekend which is something common for Europeans, but not Americans. The Europeans know how to throw a good party by spending it all weekend from Friday until Sunday compared to the usual 2am-4am curfews of most American clubs I’m so familiar with. I made it all the way until 2pm the next day. I find it amazing and comical when I ask, “When do you close?” and the security replies, “not until Sunday”. This party was one of the best parties I’ve been to all my life.

The Wandering Chef – A Dance with the Green Fairy


Green Fairy PosterWest London based experiential dining duo, The Wandering Chef, have teamed up with Pernod Absinthe to create their next pop up event as part of their residency at La Maison des Artistes: A Dance with the Green Fairy.  After the sell-out success of Asian-inspired Opium Nights, where guests enjoyed dishes such as soft shell crab and ‘Woking’ duck, The Wandering Chef will be transporting their guests to the mischievous, surreal, and psychedelic world of the Green Fairy inspired by the era of the Moulin Rouge with their latest creation.

The food will be modern twists on great French Classics. Expect seven spectacular courses including oysters and absinthe fountains, Torn Striploin Steak with Roast Garlic and Truffle Celeriac Puree, as well as seriously sexy macaroons for dessert. Guests will also be treated to burlesque performances and entertainment throughout the evening.

Known for their unconventional, playful and debaucherous evenings, A Dance With The Green Fairy seemed a perfect choice for The Wandering Chef’s latest subject. “The Epoch of the mystical Absinthe Fairy and all that she represents: the magnificent, opulent, tremendous, stupendous, gargantuan, bedazzlement, a sensual ravishment…and that’s just the food.”

The cost of a ticket includes a welcome cocktail on arrival, and entry to the exclusive La Maison des Artistes nightclub in South Kensington where A Dance With The Green Fairy is held, so guests can enjoy the after party into the night once the banquet is over.
