ManAboutWorld: Six Cool Places To Go

28 07 2015

London Sky Garden in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazine, six cool places to goEvery month ManAboutWorld delivers a slice of the gay world, including six cool places to go now in our City Seen section. This month hit the road to:

MARRAKECH, MOROCCO

Le Marocain Restaurant (at La Mamounia)
La Mamounia is the most storied hotel in a city full of beautiful properties. It was recently shut down and lovingly and magnificently restored. Part of the experience Le Marocain Restaurant is passing through this storied palace. The restaurant, located in a traditional style riad centered around an inner courtyard, offers both traditional and contemporary cuisine. The salad course consists of a dozen small bowls of locally sourced ingredients (some quite spicy!). The movie-setting mood of the dining area is enhanced by the live traditional music and authentically attired (and handsome) waitstaff.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM

Sky Garden
London’s full of fabulous parks with our favorite ones consisting of the gorgeous trio of green expanses stretching west to east through the middle of the city: Hyde, Green and St. James. But on your next visit, go a little farther east to London’s business district then straight up 525 feet to the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street, a unique public space spanning three storeys and offering 360-degree views across the City of London. Wander around the beautifully landscaped gardens and an open-air terrace with a full-on view of the famous Shard, and grab a drink, coffee or snack and enjoy London’s highest public garden. Entrance is free though you have to reserve ahead of time via the site. This may sound horrible but on a recent visit there were no more spaces available so we booked as handicapped and got in.
