• Issue 4: London

      Though its facade is very Old England, and almost bank-like, the Town Hall Hotel conceals a wonderful mid-century modern design sensibility, from the chairs in the lobby and rooms to the understated-but-sleek look of the bar and restaurants. Its location is tough to beat—the East side of London is very hip right now, and it’s 15 minutes from Oxford Circus. Try to stop into the Michelin-starred Portuguese restaurant on the premises, Viajante, for a snack or a drink before you leave town.
