Hello and welcome to TheLondonLuxe!
TheLondonLuxe has been a long time in the making since it was conceived over one too many espresso martinis at a bar 80-odd floors up in Shanghai. The site is your guide to looking good and going out in the world’s best* city, London.
So here we are now, a small yet dedicated team of London foodies, setting out to bring you some of the very best that London has to offer. It’s news, views and reviews, frankly.
At TLL we like to call a spade a spade; so if something’s good we’ll let you know, ditto if it’s bad. We’ll cover the city favourites but endeavour too, to uncover and report on some of London’s lesser known gems. And when you are out and about, we’ll try and help you look your best by bringing you the latest on new product launches and examining the merits and flaws of new beauty and grooming fads.
It’s a guide, really: a catalogue of suggestions on getting the most out of a night out, or indeed, a morning after.
Finally, while we may be confident that we’re bringing you the good stuff, we are not faultless, so do leave comments and suggestions about the articles you like, loathe or would be keen to read. Alternatively, if you’d like to contribute or suggest places/products to review, get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org or via our twitter page.
*Call us bold but we’re certain we’re right!
