Win The Ultimate Date Night | Mr. & Mrs. Smith Competition
They say the best things in life are free.
But they said that a long time ago and, after adjusting for inflation… the best things actually cost a lot now.
That is unless you talk to Mr & Mrs Smith – the sophisticated globetrotter website that keeps a beady eye on the very best luxury and boutique hotels on earth – who want to give you and a guest a night’s stay at The London Edition (whose bar they consider to be the best Best Date Night Bar on earth) for precisely zero pounds.
A gilded townhouse designed by the founder of Studio 54, The Edition is an impossibly grand affair, from the art-crammed walls of the Berners Tavern restaurant, to the majestic 19th century portico entrance.
Which is where – both literally and metaphorically – you come in.
You’ll start your evening in The Punch Room; a flashback to a Victorian gentlemen’s club, flush with oak panelled walls, velvety blue banquettes and a strict reservations-only policy for anyone but you. True to its name, you and your guest will enjoy a free punch on arrival (the nice, boozy, non-violent kind), before perusing the cocktail menu, featuring libations from the 16th to the 21st century – including one served by the ladle. Finally, decent portion sizes.
Next, you’ll mosey on upstairs to your room; another intimate, wood-panelled affair with cosy fur throws, the most luxurious of linens and a rainforest shower. All of which will no doubt contribute to the perfect night’s sleep before a decadent breakfast in bed, or – and it’s worth the trip all the way downstairs – in Berners Tavern. Under the direction of Jason Atherton, the chefs here will be knocking up all the brunch classics, as well as a few extras like aubergine and ricotta on toast, hazelnut waffles, and french toast with streaky bacon.
Because as they always say, the couple that eats breakfast together …gets to eat breakfast.
