One of London’s most stylish bloggers, Nathan Rollinson, aka The Rollinson, is rarely seen without a statement pair of velvet slippers or funky pair of tailored trousers, not to mention perfectly coiffed hair. Impeccable dressing naturally leads him to drink and dine in some of the city’s most glamorous venues and neighbourhoods, from The Ivy to The Dorchester. We caught up with the man behind the blog (and almost 100,000 Instagram followers) to see how he would spend an ultimate day of luxury – here is his guide to luxe London venues.
The glamorous Art Deco interiors of The Wolseley offer the freshest croissants and roasted coffee – the smells waft around the room during the mornings. I love the atmosphere and the interior is truly eye-catching. Their very own ‘Wolseley’ pancakes are to die for.
Spring has sprung at The Ivy Chelsea Garden. The garden at the back of the restaurant remains very discreet and the interiors are suitably fashionable for its Chelsea location. There is a whole selection of mouthwatering food to choose from, but my choice is the tuna tartare!
Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London is inspired by the unique atmosphere of a drawing room and the sophistication of a gentleman’s club. Featuring a roaring fire, a collection of cosy velvet armchairs and shelves filled with over 1,000 antique books hand-picked by a Portobello antique dealer, it is rated one of the best bars in London for its innovative drinks and artworks by Gerald Scarfe. Try out their long list of cocktails – I’d strongly recommend the ‘Sipping with Churchill’.
