Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For Whitewaller‘s inaugural London&Paris issue, out for Frieze London 2016, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things London—that shared with us how to navigate the city during the art fair. Next up, we have the artist Hans Op de Beeck, who shares his top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
I always enjoy the incomparable fish and a crisp glass of wine at Scott’s.
WHERE TO SIP
I am fairly low key and the company is more important than the drink. I’ve had enjoyable evenings at Mark Hix’s art-filled restaurant and bar, HIX, in Soho.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Too many… Whitechapel, Serpentine, Tate, Royal Academy, ICA…
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
I enjoy strolling the Southbank—the river is beautiful, the London Eye is stunning, and the Southbank Centre itself is a great place to explore all the art forms London has to offer.
WHERE TO RELAX
I like to wind down with a quiet drink at Blakes Below. They have the best bartenders, and I love the new garden with the life-size birdcage.
TOP SHOW TO SEE DURING FRIEZE
“Picasso Portraits” at the National Portrait Gallery, and of course seeing the culmination of my solo show at Frieze with Marianne Boesky Gallery.
