This month in St James’s, we are embracing the season of love and romance with the gift of ultimate indulgence. In the lead up to Valentine's Day, a variety of shops, restaurants, and hotels in the area will be tailoring themselves to lovers and loved ones. Here is our take on this month’s romantic happenings.
At this time of year nothing speaks louder than roses. That’s why we are so enamoured by the special edition ‘A Rose For…’ perfume from Floris. Why not pair this beautiful scent with the unmistakable new-book-smell of a coffee table masterpiece? There are thousands to choose from at Maison Assouline for the literary enthusiast in your life. And if it’s fashion that sets the heart on fire, look no further than Gizelle Renee’s limited edition ‘Trust Love Scarf’ - handcrafted with a love poem printed onto it; or the beautifully crafted men’s clothing and accessories from Sunspel.
There are one of a kind experiences aplenty in St James’s, and our international cuisine is no exception. Whether you are treating yourself, a friend, or even that special someone, our culinary choices are second to none. The art of eating well is something we take seriously and one of our favourite spots to do just that is The Balcon at Sofitel. With this month’s Valentine’s menu you can tuck into an exceptional five course meal in the elegance of this award winning restaurant. Alternatively why not treat yourself and a guest to a complimentary glass of Laurent-Perrier Rosé Champagne with Boulestin’s tantalising Valentine’s menu.
When the evening draws to a close, there are few places better to end it than at one of our area’s exceptional bars. Whether it’s a cocktail at Norris’s or a nightcap at The Ritz London, St James’s is the perfect place to toast to a day like no other.
