Collector Kamiar Maleki shares his side of London.
FAVORITE SPOT TO FIND INSPIRATION
My favorite spots in the city to find inspiration range from galleries to shops. I love Mount Street Gardens, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Portobello Road, the Little Venice neighborhood, and bookstores. For art, I’m really impressed by the presentations at Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool, The Line, The Barbican Center, The Wallace Collection, Hayward Gallery, and Whitechapel Gallery. I also love gallery hopping in East London.
BEST KEPT SECRETS IN LONDON
Some of my favorite lesser-known space in London are Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at the Corinthia Hotel, Frog by Adam Handling, Din Tai Fung in Covent Garden, Cornerstone by Chef Tom Brown, Gold in Notting Hill, Mr Fogg’s Residence (for great cocktails), Padella, Bancone, Frescobaldi, Nutshell, Berenjak, and Gloria. I also love shopping at Koi Bird, Dover Street Market, and Sheppards Market, and on Bermondsey Street and Marylebone Street.
