One can reasonably assume that readers of this magazine are often called to London - a business trip, George and Amal’s wedding, a gala event, a trip with the wife, one with the mistress, then back again with the wife to make amends. The reasons and excuses to visit the city are innumerable. London is a city for any and all occasions.
No matter how many times he boards MEA flight 201 to Heathrow, a gentleman would always look forward to experiencing the city. No other city in the world can rival London’s audacious mix of tradition and modernity, conservatism and fantasy.
Whilst one is entitled to one’s preferences - Arsenal or Chelsea, Wenger or Mourinho, Nobu or Zuma, Hache or Byron - there are, thankfully, items, places and experiences that every gentleman would agree on. Unless, of course, they agree to disagree.
