Marylebone by morning is all about coffee culture; people gossiping on scattered tables outside, catching the early sunshine, or dashing, cup in hand, to a meeting. It’s also packed with boutique-lined streets, dinky under-the-radar restaurants, intriguing little passageways and smart neighbourhood hotels. It’s an area you can easily get lost in for an entire day. In this video, Condé Nast Traveller‘s digital editor, Becky Lucas, and GQ contributing fashion editor Nick Carvell show us their favourite spots and reminisce about where their friendship started, working near this patch of the city in Portman Marylebone.
Keys to Marylebone
This summer, hotels and brands within Portman Marylebone have come together to offer unique experiences and deals that can only be accessed by hotel guests. Marylebone is home to some of London’s most-loved addresses (Nobu Hotel Portman Square, The Zetter Townhouse and Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill, to name a few), and people choosing to stay in the area can access free style advice and discounts in menswear boutiques Dashing Tweeds and Grey Flannel, treat themselves to a wine tasting at Philglas & Swiggot or enjoy a chef’s-table experience at Jikoni. Plus, there are lots more added touches thrown in from other partners; it’s like being given a special set of keys to this little polished pocket of London.
