“Wow!!! A genuinely bespoke city guide!!!” Tommy Sponge, Chairman, The Bespokist Society
You have in your hands one of the most curated city guides ever created. As the first travel book produced by the hugely influential Bespokist Society, this handy guide takes you to a London you’ve never seen: a London of challenging Etruscan restaurants, edgy branding parlours, emoji hotels and hidden Icelandic communities; a London where 8-ply toilet paper is a thing.
On the way, meet an eclectic band of inspiring Londoners – from scriveners to socialites via urban wordsmiths and coffee preachers – and see why London is now the global epicentre of Bespokist consciousness, community and culture.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
The Bespokist Society Guide to London is a tongue in cheek travel guide to London. One of my favorite places listed is the chain of ‘bottom parlors’ that include luxurious toilets, bowel-stimulating music, and bottom butters. I think it tickled me because I wouldn’t be surprised if these parlors popped up somewhere.
Like all city guides, there are plenty of restaurants listed. My favorite (because it’s so silly) is V-Gastro. All the food is virtual reality so even though it might be an enjoyable experience, customers will leave hungry.
If you enjoy tongue in cheek, this is a book for you. I think it’d be even funnier for someone who lives in or has visited London. I’ve never been to London but still found it amusing.
The Bespokist Society Guide to London is a work of fiction written by born and bred Londoner, Jeremy Liebster. Somewhat surprisingly, Jeremy is also a city lawyer – formerly at DLA Piper and now a General Counsel within a large private equity group. Jeremy is utterly obsessed with travel books and although he might poke fun at urban fads, hipster fried chicken is his guilty pleasure. He also has an unusual interest in clothes hangers.
