those who haven’t heard there’s a new hotel and restaurant on Chiltern Street in Marylebone which is causing quite a commotion, Chiltern Firehouse with Nuno Mendes in the kitchen. And, whilst that in itself is enough of a reason to visit this once bridal boutique lined street, it seems the hotel opening has also attracted a fair few cooler businesses.

Last year magazine Monocle opened their first and only cafe in the UK which serves hot drinks, smoothies and snacks in simple surrounds. Most recently PRISM opened their doors selling sexy sunglasses and summer wear. Whilst other stores such as Trunk selling the likes of Comme Des Garcons, Cox & Power and their jewellery offerings and Mouki Mou with their hand-selected brands make the street a one-stop shopping destination.

There’s even art galleries and beauty salons for when the shopping gets too much. Bag yourself a rezzie at Chiltern Firehouse, book a room (once they open in May) and make a day of it exploring.
