Affordable Cool Boutique Hotels in East London

Luxury hospitality is commonly associated with London, the mega metropolitan city. The focus has previously been on large and upscale structures; towering builds for offices, malls, and restaurants with breathtaking views of London. Famed for excellence and prestige, Claridges, Fortnum and Masons remain loyal staples to the minds of many. The sheer number of cool rooftops, festivals, urban gardens, pop-up events and culinary and cultural happenings, is why London remains one of the most visited cities in Europe.

World Atlas of Street Food

Most of our loyal readers and Instagram fans will know that team Travel & Lust love gastronomy and confess to having a soft spot for street food. Whether it's an outdoor in the middle of a vineyard in the hilly landscapes of Tuscany, grabbing a bite from a hole in the wall in Morocco or admitting to salivating crazily over some souvlaki in Athens, we quite like the culture that entails around street food. This is why we were more than honoured to have been asked to contribute to the cookbook World Atlas of Street Food by authors Carol Wilson and Sue Quinn. T

East London Hip

North of the river Thames, you can find seven London Boroughs that make up East London: Tower Hamlets, Newham, Waltham Forest, Barking and Dagenham, Redbridge, Havering and Hackney. We especially love the artistic vibe summed up best by the eclectic street art which adorns many of the east end neighbourhoods, the melting pot of cultures and the strong sense of community that grasps you, whether you are a newcomer or have been around for the long haul.

Nº 197 Chiswick Fire Station - London

Something independently new opened in April of this year in the west side of London, stemming from the minds behind No. 11 Pimlico Rd in what has been Chiswick's sidelined red brick fire station. The former home of the local fire brigade has maintained its fire station features on the outside, with a hip interior that is closer to what you can find in Los Angeles, California than you perhaps would in London.

Hubbard & Bell - London

Hubbard and Bell at The Hox (Holborn) has been hitting the air waves since mid 2015 when they decided to launch their first Sunday Feast. It is the perfect weekend indulgence, especially since you can have a typical lazy day and treat yourself to an all-day buffet of Italian deli-style cooking. Good food is so fundamental here, you will be returning to tuck in to some of the dishes that didn't make it in your tummy.

DF/Mexico Diner - London

You only have to look at the success of Wahaca to see that Mexican food is in demand and need not be a little sitio in a dark and unsettling street. Contemporary design, modern fixtures and POS units can intertwine to create an inviting restaurant for all and this is what we thought when we visited DF Mexico. I mean we don't need many excuses to go to head over to the Truman Brewery, but we sure found another one with this restaurant at the very top end of Hanbury Street.
