CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HARVEY NICHOLS
During the latest lockdown, the team at Harvey Nichols has been pulling out all the stops to make the Knightsbridge department store the destination for fashion, beauty and beyond. From a cocktail in the sun to the latest facial treatments, here’s what to book for an afternoon out with the girls.
The Gin Pop-Up
We’re big fans of a post-shopping pick-me-up, and Harvey Nichols’ Fifth Floor Cafe & Terrace is one of our favourite places to do it. This summer, the store has teamed up with Malfy gin to transform the terrace into a Mediterranean getaway. Open until the end of June, the Malfy Lemon Grove brings a bit of la dolce vita to Knightsbridge via classic blue shutters, Amalfi-style tiles, a leaf-lined pergola and foliage including lemons and pretty trailing flowers. On the menu, expect to sample a selection of gin-based cocktails and plenty of Mediterranean-inspired dishes.

The New Restaurant
There’s an exciting addition to Harvey Nichols’ expanding food portfolio: Madhu’s 2 Go. Inspired by the award-winning Madhu’s restaurant, this new concept offers a fusion of signature recipes passed down through generations as well as contemporary dishes with Punjabi and Kenyan inspiration. Madhu’s 2 Go is available for delivery, collection or to be enjoyed on the Fifth Floor Terrace. We recommend the palak patta chaat (samphire and crispy battered spinach leaves with chilli, turmeric and fresh coriander) and asparagus choma (chilli and lemon asparagus, grilled on the robata).

The Bespoke Piercing Experience
Luxury jewellery brand The Alkemistry has taken up residency in the department store, offering a high-end piercing experience alongside a huge selection of gold, diamond, pearl and precious gemstone earrings. As part of the experience, customers can try specialised drinks that calm and soothe, and take away a complimentary goody bag designed with wellbeing in mind. Experts will be on hand to offer advice and book you in for an aftercare appointment, with packages available for adults and children. We love the sound of the ‘Transformation’ package (£75, plus jewellery), a one-hour styling session – for up to three piercings – to help choose the location and perfect pieces based on your ear shape.

The Insta-Ready Mani Treatments
Highly successful studio Nail’d It has landed at Harvey Nichols, offering clients Instagram-worthy manicures and pedicures. Passionate about superior nail artistry, the brand’s mission is to elevate every aspect of the nail experience for customers. The salon’s team of highly qualified nail artists ensure consistency and excellence throughout every treatment – from nail art to nail extensions. In a bit of a rush? The team can sort your hands and feet in 40 minutes thanks to an ‘In & Out Combo’ package that comes with a choice of classic, gel or shellac finish.

Until August, the team is offering a complimentary 30-minute taster treatment – ideal for those who want to know what all the fuss is about, but aren’t quite sure what is involved in the treatment.

Inside, you’ll discover new and established brands like Zimmermann, Devotion, Lisa Marie Fernandez, Rhode, Melissa Odabash and Gimaguas, alongside suncare and melt-proof make-up.
