In Mayfair, you have some of London’s finest shops surrounding you. There is lavish merchandise in the shops and friendly salespeople are more than willing to help you part with your money.
Your first stop of the weekend is at the Louis Vuitton Maison, located on New Bond Street. The Maison (a fancy LV word for mega-store) is the most luxurious store of the Louis Vuitton chain. I know- I am squealing with delight too at the thought of being there!
As you arrive, you instantly notice the massive size of the store. It is an impressive 35,000 square feet, which is larger than your apartment at home. You make sure to allow time to browse through all of the modern clothing pieces for men and women. After all, how many chances like this are there?!
Many of the clothing styles are exclusive to this location, and there is even a Men’s Club Area. The changing rooms are roomy and you have no problem picking up a pair of shoes and handbag with the famous monogram. Before leaving the Maison, you stop in at the “Librairie” to browse through the art books. Yes, there is a bookstore set within the store!

You note that main dishes cost between £19 and £25.
Feeling full, you realize that the evening is now in full swing. It is definitely time to visit Dukes Hotel. When you arrive at the luxurious hotel, you decide to enjoy the warm evening in the hotel’s Cognac and Cigar Garden. The garden is an outdoor drinking patio that is open year round, only at night. You sit in a cozy fabric chair, taking in the marvelous atmosphere of lantern lights and sipping a glass full of smooth cognac.
