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 Polly Morgan, who shares her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax next week.
WHERE TO EAT
Scott’s. The Beef Rossini—rare beef, seared foie gras, and truffle gravy—is the most indulgent dish I’ve ever had and would be my last meal on death row. Rawduck on Richmond Road is the perfect antidote. They draw inspiration from Scandinavia and Japan and are truly original.
WHERE TO SIP
As a South Londoner, I would recommend Pharmacy 2 at Newport Street in Vauxhall. It’s away from the crush of town, you can see the Jeff Koons show, and have a margarita whilst perched on a giant pill.
WHERE TO SEE ART
South London Gallery is my local and recently had a great show by Michael Dean. Now, they are expanding into the old fire station over the road. Newport Street is a great addition to the area and worth a trip just for the architecture.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
Brixton Market is great for grazing and shopping. I also love Hackney Marshes for walking my dogs. They connect to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park where the facilities are now open to the public. The 50-meter- long pool is the best in London.
WHERE TO RELAX
In the countryside as far from the madness as possible. I love the area around Stroud and would recommend a long walk in Slad Valley, followed by drinks and supper at The Woolpack Inn.
TOP SHOW TO SEE DURING FRIEZE
Thilo Heinzmann’s “To Be and To Be” at Carl Freedman Gallery.
