Frieze London 2019

London’s biggest art fair hits the city centre once again and the whole town is buzzing about all the new art that is currently taking over Regents Park for the week. Frieze is hosted both in New York, LA and London every year. This week in London they are profiling more than 160 of the worlds leading art galleries with thousands of artists being profiled as well as specially commissioned artists’ projects, a talks programme, and an artist-led education schedule. Though the main purpose of the fair is for artists to sell their work, it has become such a popular siting that 80% of the people that come through the doors are just pure spectators. It has become the most famous, the most Instagrammed and the most hyped art fair of them all where the famous names rub against the up and coming stars of tomorrow. For art fans, there’s nothing that beats the fun of the Frieze art fair!

Recommendations on Where to Stay in London during Frieze

Whale Gaming is an expert at this next part as Frieze is located very close to the WHALE headquarters. Our favourite hotels around the area are situated in Marylebone. There is our all-time favourite the Chiltern Firehouse, an Andre Balazs luxury hotel and restaurant. Vogue describes this hotel the best, ” a night spent at the hotel moves from stage to stage, act to act, with all the lightness of touch, wit and irreverence of an Oscar Wilde play, except that at the end – many, many hours past cocktail hour – the plot has a habit of twisting into something a little more rock’n’roll than a comedy of manners. ”

Another great hotel situated close by is the Marylebone Hotel, A stone’s throw from the department stores and boutiques of Oxford Street and Mayfair and the independent restaurants and markets of Marylebone High Street, The Marylebone hotel harnesses the infectious energy and style of W1 at every turn. The charm and buzz of the chic 108 Brasserie; a yoga class playing out in the hotel’s decked courtyard; an advertising brainstorm underway in the next-door Library; or treadmills being pounded in the luxury Third Space gym, pool and spa – it all makes for a ‘village’ feel.
