Zoe Kravitz, Jaden Smith and Soko have flocked to this intimate hotel lounge in recent months, thanks to the now-monthly series of invite-only concerts. Acts from The Dandy Warhols to CRX (Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi's new band) perform amid a backdrop crafted by Julian Schnabel and artworks by Damien Hirst.

The Store at 180 The Strand

This month, English designer Alex Eagle launches the latest of her ever-evolving concept shops (frequented by "It" Brits like Lily Donaldson and Quentin Jones). In collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, which helps curate The Store's music, it will host immersive installations while selling limited-edition clothing and records.

Radio Rooftop Bar at Me Milan Il Duca

The Aldo Rossi-designed space recently opened near the fashion district, with mod interiors featuring Alberto Van Stokkum's portraits of music icons. At aperitivo time, the likes of Lapo Elkann (Fiat heir and eyewear designer) head to the roof for DJ sets.

Nuits Fauves

In June, the team behind the David Lynch members club Silencio unveiled a 7,500-square-foot boite for electronic music beneath Les Docks, the contemporary fashion/design/art space on the Seine. A-Trak has played the venue, with Georgia Jagger and rapper Joeystarr among the fans.
