The Krug Room

London’s hotel haunt of choice, The Dorchester, has recently reopened the legendary Krug Room, the original chef’s table, following a full facelift which promises to bring new life to this landmark venue. The design of The Krug Room pays homage to its heritage, selling itself with its elegant luxury minus the luxe flashiness that too often parades itself in London clubs. Rich woods and soft lighting combine to make a chilled atmosphere offset by pieces of contemporary design and lighting – take note of the state-of-the-art liquid crystal glass wall which separates your party from a direct view of the […]

Banksy’s work has even been ‘vandalised’ itself, with one piece attracting its own graffiti in Australia. The artist, whose identity still remains a quasi-secret (theories are endless) exhibited in Bristol Museum over the summer – he started out there with Bristol’s DryBreadZ Crew becoming […]
