Today I took a walk from Trafalgar Square and while I was there visited the National Portrait Gallery for a moment of peace away from the hustle and bustle of the west end just slightly after lunch time. It’s always good to walk on foot if you have the time to spare as well as spontaneously find new places to check out. I’d say unique Hotels with a quiet bar as well as a luxury dining room with exquisite ambiance is my sanctuary. After a busy morning you’d want to find somewhere to relax and unwind to spend the rest of your lazy afternoon. I’d just arrived at this Hotel on the corner of Suffolk Place on Haymarket where a friend and I decided to pop in for quick drink in The Brumus Bar and Restaurant located inside the Haymarket Hotel before heading over to The Hamyard Hotel Bar in Soho later in the evening. The hotel interiors were very elegant and quirky as I noticed the Canine Doggies upholstered onto the back of the bar stools and restaurant in a regal purple and pink fuchsia appealed to me. For all you pet lovers at home as they say ‘a man’s best friend is also his dog’ so immediately I felt very at home here. I thought it had a personal touch as well as being distinctly sophisticated which stood out as a style statement. I’m really impressed from what I’ve seen so far even though it was just a brief visit I definitely would pop in again for the foreseeable future.

The Brumus Bar & Restaurant

Haymarket London


Renowned for its exquisite elegance where you’ll experience a traditional afternoon tea in style at the newly refurbished and spacious Brumus Bar & Restaurant situated in the heart of London’s Theatre district..

Expect plush interiors nonetheless, unique art installations reflects the passion of its founder and Creative Director Kit Kemp is present within the interior design of the hotel. Experience the homely and inviting ambience of the hotel restaurants or drawing rooms were afternoon tea is served all day with quintessential flair. Definitely make this your pit stop after a day of shopping or pre-theatre dinning before a West-End show. But the most enticing thing about this place is most definitely the sumptuous hotel cocktail and bar menu with carefully curated wine list and spirits to deliciously mixed cocktails to complimenting menu of continental taste from main dishes to sharing platters.

OSTERIA MAMMA ROSA MILANESE CLASSIC ITALIAN CUISINE

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2min read1505 views

The first thing which comes to mind when you think about living the Italian way of life is culture through cuisine and only the finest authentic food can be found at this Top Milanese Restaurant Osteria Mamma Rosa just off the trendy Corso Buenos Airies within walking distance of Porto Venezia.

In Italy an Osteria restaurant cuisine serves a selection of wine and food which is known especially for local specialities such as pasta dishes, grilled meat or fish where menu’s selections tend to be short. Throughout history some traditional Osteria establishment’s dates even far back as to the 14th and 15th Century. Upon my visit to Milan for Fashion Week in between the shows and events I managed to visit here a couple of times to dine with friends. This hidden gem in the heart of Milan’s City Centre has to be by far one of my favourite restaurant experiences so far for Italian cuisine and hope to return soon next time I visit again for fashion week.

My favourite signature dish here has to be the Sea Bass prepared the Liguria way served with potatoes’  as an alternative to the Grilled Seabass which is also delightfully sumptuous. On arrival prosecco is served before dinner as a gesture of good will and the atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming at this family run restaurant in the heart of Milan. Walk in’s are welcome during busy hours. Great food and fantastic atmosphere to enjoy culinary delights just like a local at this fine establishment in the center of Milan.
