TASTE: THE LUGGAGE ROOM
Steve Ryan Photography
This former 1920s Luggage Storage room is one of London's best kept secrets. The intimate and stylish bar is located on the corner of the Grosvenor Hotel in Mayfair. The hostesses wander around in flapper style dresses with the bartenders in bow ties. They are self described 'Cocktail Perfectionists'. With such attention to detail you cannot possibly go wrong here. The slick interior was designed by Fabled Design Studio and inspired by the Bently Boys era and vintage luggage.
We recommend: Clover Club Martini: Tanqueray, lemon juice & raspberry syrup. For more information visit theluggageroom.co.uk
VISIT: TYNESIDE ART DECO CINEMA
First opened in 1937 by Dixon Scott - Great Uncle to film directors Ridley Scott and Tony Scott - The Tyneside Cinema has kept all of its charm and many of it's original Art Deco Interior. When it first opened it was used to show newsreels, documentaries, short subjects and cartoons.

FILM: CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
Dominating the latter half of May, The Cannes Film Festival never fails to fulfil our need for stalking 'cool' people. Filled with Glitz and Glamour, not to mention a tremendous amount of talent, we will be keeping up to date with all the latest from the festival. This year The Great Gatsby, starring Leo Dicaprio and Carey Mulligan, will open the show. Filmed in 3D and accomanied with a Jay Z sound track, this film based on a 1920's era novel has been propelled into the 21st Century. A dark romantic story full of decadence, excess and love. Released in cinemas 16th May.

This year the RHS are celebrating 100 years since first opening the show - so there are lots of events planned to entertain the crowds. Our favourite section is the Artisan Retreat Gardens, where top designers and artists showcase their creative ideas - a bit like an outdoor gallery.. Plus it's great for celeb spotting! With the Kings Road only a short distance away there is plenty to do post-visit.

LISTEN: ON THE RSG PLAYLIST THIS MONTH
So now we have our fabulous faux bangs, blood red lips, and shimmering tassels at the ready, we need ourselves some sultry sounds. We couldn't feature the long awaited Great Gatsby without a mention of the gravelly tones of Sia and her soundtrack addition of Kill and Run, and if that hasn't tempted your mood for Champagne and Gin, then sure enough Louis' West End Blues will inspire with his deep, raspy singing and horn music
A little later and we're ready to get the dance floor shakin' - Brighton Buskers The Swing Ninjas are sure to have you reaching out for your cocktail and shaking your tail feather.
