There is just something about getting to take tea in an elegant hotel that makes my world right, so when looking for somewhere to head post silent cinema the Langham and more specifically the Aria Bar and lounge sounded perfect.
Bean, Dino and I headed around Southbank originally looking for a bar and did a quick 180 (a girls perogative I believe) and decided tea was really what we were after (yup – wild child) somewhere serene and lovely and well Langham ish to settle down and have ... Read More
I have always wanted to take tea at the Plaza. Think old world glamour resting on the edged of Central Park and Fifth Ave.

This is one of those places where you almost want to pinch yourself as you walk in. It's exactly how a cafe selling sweet cakes should look. Exactly. Its even situated perfectly at the foot of the quirky charming Rathdowne Village, a favorite haunt of mine. On Sunday with yet another beautifully sunny morning spreading out in front of me I decided it was the perfect day to have an impromptu picnic in the park. I will be honest here that I generally spend an hour or two most weekends at the park ... Read More
