Exclusive! West the new East!

Contrary to Lonely Planet's latest London edition exclaiming the East End as the place to be, trend-setters Crockatt & Powell say No! While the bright lights shine on Shoreditch, Mayfair quietly goes about its business of being sexier, better dressed, more stylish, more intriguing and just plain louche. Sure it's probably international arms deals going on behind those elegant, nameless facades but we can overlook that for now as driving round the Mayfair streets in an open top Roller early on a sunday morning after an all-nighter of whichever persuasion takes your fancy remains one of my top teenage (admittedly slightly Austin Powersish) fantasies.
