Your favourite city in the world:
Your favourite restaurants: I am actually in this business as well and own three restaurants.
HIX, 66-70 Brewer Street City of Westminster, W1F 9UP,
+44 20 7292 3518
(Favourite dish: Webster’s fish fingers, fish & chips)
HIX BELGRAVIA, Pont Street, London SW1X 9EJ, +44 20 3189 4850
TRAMSHED, 32 Rivington Street, London EC2A 3LX, +44 20 7749 0478
It’s just opened in Shoreditch, which is the real trendy place for London. The menu primarily focuses on steak and chicken items. Greeting guests and reminding them of this fact is the spectacularly placed Cock and Bull piece from Damian Hirst created specifically for us.
Your favourite hotel:
CLARIDGE’S, 49 Brook Street, Mayfair, London, +44 20 7629 8860.
Your favourite shop: SELFRIDGES
I especially love the food department.
Your favourite nightclub:
THE WELLINGTON, 116A Knightsbridge London SW1X 7PL,
+ 44 20 7823 8211
I don’t hardly ever go to nightclubs anymore. If I do go to a nightclub, I go to the Wellington, which it’s the place where I know everybody, I know the DJ, and that’s probably what I’m looking for right now.
Your favourite art gallery: TATE MODERN, Bankside London SE1 9TG, +44 20 78878752
Your favourite park: HYDE PARK
I live right next to it and walk across it nearly every morning.
Your favourite transportation in London: THE TUBE
I use the tube, because if you don’t you’re going to get very frustrated. My motorbike, I keep at the country.
