Kim Sing Theatre, Los Angeles “GO HERE”
Who doesn’t love a historic building turned into a trendy boutique hotel? Especially when it’s a vintage film house in DTLA’s Chinatown. Kim Sing Theatre, a vaudeville theatre from the 1920s, has spanking new renovations and is open to the public for the first time in over a decade. “An experience like no other”, is how they describe themselves. The theatre fell into decline after many years of non-use after its hey-day. Fortunately the property was salvaged and upgraded into a state-of-the-art residence and event space where guests can sleep, play and mingle.
Harry’s Dolce Vita, London “EAT HERE”
Bellinis all round! The restaurant version of renowned members club Harry’s Bar in London’s Mayfair, has moved into a site directly opposite Harrods. A slick, upmarket all-day dining Italian restaurant offering a menu featuring unfussy Italian classics from Chef Diego Cardoso (previously at Murano) and designed to transport guests back to the restaurants and bars of post-war 1950s and 1960s Italy.
You can expect Linguine Vongole, Pappardelle al Ragù Bolognese and a whole seabass baked in a paper bag with fennel, rosemary and Amalfi lemon. Given the restaurant’s name, you’d expect the dessert list to be pretty extensive and you’d be proven right. Read our full review here!
