Richard Dennen’s Top 5 London Hotspots

Tom’s Deli
226 Westbourne Grove, London W11 2RH
This is the best place to start the day - a delicious cooked breakfast or healthy snack from the most relaxed outpost of the Conran family’s restaurant empire.

The Hillgate
24 Hillgate Street London W8 7SR
This is the posh pub of the moment. Populated by the Beautiful People both behind and in front of the bar.

American Bar at The Savoy
The Savoy, Strand, WC2R 0EU
If you feel like a sophisticated West End drink this is the place to go. During Prohibtion the best American bar staff headed here hence the name.

The Scotch of St James’
13 Mason’s Yard, London SW1
This is one of the trendiest clubs at the moment but has real rock history as Jimi Hendricks and the Stones both held famous gigs here.

The Box
11-12 Walker’s Court, W1
The London outpost of the famous New York boite was insane last year, packed full of the hottest girls and boys - while maybe not quite as achingly hip it’s still one of the most louche places to hang.
