In an opulent Georgian building just off Oxford Street, this Ian Schrager–designed hotel opened its doors during London Fashion Week 2013. Feast on contemporary British fare at Berners Tavern, a grand see-and-be-seen dining room helmed by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. After dinner curl up with a quirky cocktail at the Lobby Bar, or enjoy live music and gin-infused punch bowls in the low-lit, oak-paneled Punch Room.
The pick of London's best restaurants are on the doorstep, from newbie hipster joint Social Eating House to Soho stalwart Kettners. Shopping thoroughfare Oxford Street is just around the corner, or hit Carnaby Street and Kingly Court for smaller independent boutiques.
