While I study journalism in London, my sister is a business student in Berlin. But what makes one of these cities unique when compared to the other? We unveil our favorite city hotspots and compare which capital offers the best in lifestyle, shopping and culture.
For my boyfriend’s 30th birthday we went out for dinner at Aqua Kyoto in London’s Regent Street. With its central location, Aqua offers a unique and high-class dining experience.
Already the entrance is stunning: A beautiful receptionist welcomes us in a dimly lit lobby. The walls that are decked out with red velvet drapes and the secret-sensuous atmosphere awaken our curiosity for more.
Once landed on the fifth floor, even more of these elegant dressed assistants wait for us. The ladies guide the guests either to Aqua Nueva, the Spanish restaurant of the concept on the left side, or to Aqua Kyoto, a restaurant inspired by the Japanese cuisine. Our assistant takes us through the bar area to our fancy table. Entering the main restaurant area of Aqua Kyoto, our eyes drift to the open sushi work station, where guest can watch their meal being freshly prepared.
The high-class interior design is also very opulent, with velvet chairs, wooden tables and plenty of mirrors on the walls. The dining area ends in a glass wall opening up to a big terrace, which is one of my favorite highlights of this place. A wooden decking and rattan furniture create a comfortable and romantic atmosphere, where you have an incredible view over Regent Street and central London.
Looking for a night with a sprinkle of sensuality and seduction? Then you shouldn’t miss the fabulous Burlesque show at Wam Bam Club in the heart of London’s Piccadilly.
Each Saturday the Café de Paris in London’s Coventry Street turns into an extraordinary place and offers guests a first-class performance and the perfect burlesque-experience.
We absolutely didn’t know what to expect when we decided to join the show for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette party last Saturday, but entering the place we already felt the vintage glamour and historical atmosphere of the building. Café de Paris opened its doors in 1924 and since then established itself as one of Europe’s premier nightspots.
