Surely the most impressive feature is the greenhouse-inspired atrium, which serves as an all-day dining space. Here you don’t just go out to eat, you fill up on light and energy. The first European outpost of the American boutique brand is setting new standards even for a city like London. The interior design, which builds a bridge between British tradition and New York hipster coolness, is based on a collaboration with the award-winning design studio Roman and Williams. The historically listed building used to be The Bow Street Magistrates’ Court and Police Station. Ironically, Oscar Wilde was once sentenced to two years in prison in the former courtroom that you can now rent for private parties.
