What’s New and Cool in K&C

KXU

Just opened on Pavilion Road, KXU is the second venture from the people behind the well known, uber luxe gym KX off Brompton Cross. Instead of the usual membership fee, however, the new “one stop shop for boutique fitness” is pay-as-you-go; making it particularly appealing to frequent travellers. Boasting 40 of the industry’s most respected teachers, there is everything from yoga to spin classes and much more on offer. The spa is described as a “complete beauty and wellness clinic” and there is a deliciously healthy menu to refuel you after your workout. Where better to keep fit and network at the same time?

Dinings

We’ve long been fans of the Marylebone restaurant, which serves exceptional Japanese fusion ‘tapas’, so, as the Tel Aviv outpost is a little harder to get to, we’re delighted they’ve opened another branch off Walton Street. The menu is more eclectic than your usual sushi restaurant, thanks to the modern European influence, featuring their own take on a ‘Plateu de Fruits de Mer’, Tar-Tar chips (like mini tacos filled, for example, with fatty Toro tuna and jalapeno mayonnaise) and Robata style grilled dishes, alongside other sashimi and sushi creations. All their seafood is seasonal from the Cornish coast and the cocktail list is worth sampling too.

Talisman

Since relocating from Dorset to its striking art deco premises on the New King’s Road in 2006, this haven for contemporary and antique furniture and objets d’art has become a must-visit for anyone serious about interiors. This year, for the London Design Festival, they teamed up with eight influential designers and artists, asking them to each create a ‘money no object’ room or space for their ‘Designed at Talisman’ exhibition. From the ‘Greco-Roman meets crumbling English country house’ drawing room by Luke Edward Hall to an opulent courtyard with tribal touches by leading florist Hayley Newstead, the project is a riot of creativity and inspiration.

Designed at Talisman runs until 6th October
