All of its shops, hotels, restaurants and bars purvey the finest level of entertainment and cater to those seeking a sufficient award of hedonism. The very air n Mayfair is immaculate, reflecting the state of every aspect of the area – its squares, streets and gardens. 

You might be tempted to call it nothing more than a display case. But there is more to it than meets the eye. It is a buzzing area, part of the great city of London, with much to do any time of the year. Anyone visiting is coming back for more. And here is why that is so: 

  • There are many great gardens and parks to take a walk around – Mayfair is bounded by two of the arguably the best parks in the capital – Green Park and Hyde Park. As such, Mayfair is in no short supply of beautiful areas to take a walk around. Other than these big parks, there are other places to walk around. One good example is Brown Heart Gardens. Labelled by many to be a truly hidden oasis in the heart of the city, it stands elevated on a level above the street. Just a close distance away is Mount Street Gardens. Characteristic about this area are the long lines of benches, perfectly well-maintained flower beds and peculiar sculptures. If you need even more interesting places to wander around, then check out Berkeley Square and Grosvenor Square. There are plenty of luxurious showrooms and apartment blocks surrounding these areas. 

  • Check out the streets and mews of the area – if you are someone who values a more different experience, then head out exploring the streets of the area. There is much to see. Whether it is the silent and secluded mews, or some of the busiest thoroughfares around, you will be spoiled for interesting places to check out. Among the favourites are Avery Row, Lancashire Court and Brook’s Mews, all within a close distance to famous Bond Street. With shops, restaurants and curious cafes, you will not feel bored for a second. 

  • Go out for a drink in the area – if you are more of a pub or bar type of person, you will find that this scene is well-established in Mayfair. There is entertainment of the highest level within places like Mr Frogg’s Residence. It is perhaps the most well-known travel-themed venues in the area. Visiting here will have you thinking about Phileas Frogg’s travels around the world, all the while sipping on your favourite drink. Just up the street is the famous Coach and Horses pub. To a lot of people, this is the best one around, built in the 1770s and still going strong as one of the symbols of Mayfair. The Punch Bowl is another famous place to grab a drink at. It a nice place with some old-world charm and some of the best food you can find around. 

  • Shopping till your heart’s content – Mayfair is one of the best shopping heavens around. This is one of the main reasons so many people visit here. Bond Street offers so many luxury shops, as well as South Molton Street. Mayfair is the home of Savile Row, men’s holy grail for tailoring. There are plenty of interesting places outside shops as well, like the Royal Arcade and the Burlington Arcade. 

Knowing more about the area of Mayfair is good, as it will allow you to make the most of it on your visit here.

Why one should lease rather than buying warehouses
Warehouse management has become an integral business component to scale up businesses and ensuring customer satisfaction through state-of-the-art supply chain management and efficient inventorization. Warehouses ensure seamless and efficient product delivery framework, mapping logistics to a streamlined process ecosystem, spreading wings far and wide to satisfy customer requests from far flung regions. The big question then is: should entrepreneurs buy or lease warehouses? Seemingly a simple choice to make, but there are a variety of factors which go into making the decision. With the emergence of a massive real estate market, competitive pricing models, warehouse decentralization has become indispensable for companies, especially those in e-commerce logistics, to ensure enhanced customer experience and loyalty. According to CBRE, leasing of warehouses spaces has grown by a massive 31% Y-o-Y to 13 million square feet across 8 Indian cities in the first half of 2019 alone, with a total investment of more than USD 200 million. This points towards the potential growth prospects of a planned leasing model and its benefits to economize business cash-flow and optimize risks. Leasing costs is spread out over the time period of lease, rather than a lump sum amount. The businesses have a lot of flexible options to choose from, depending upon the business size, location, and those which are proximate to important infrastructural facilities for easier movement of goods. This also entails minimal/no repair and maintenance costs to be incurred by the lessee, and consequently minimal overhead expenditure. Since cost is often a critical deciding factor in sourcing assets, adopting the leasing route is often a profitable investment, especially with the wide-ranging business needs. Let us look at some of the benefits your business value accrues as a result of leasing assets: 1. Leasing is generally less expensive than buying, if arranged in a cohesive, efficient and future-oriented arrangement. Lease agreements must be reviewed with respect to major parameters like logistical services, financial impact, customer satisfaction and flexible options to up-scale business. 2. Lesser liabilities and overheads – Instead of focusing on providing exquisite customer service through an efficient supply chain management and timely delivery of services, owning assets poses additional liabilities arising out of repair and damages, re-selling assets and their valuation. With a dynamic market, technology and equipment needs have rapidly evolved, and it makes less financial sense to buy these assets than leasing them. Businesses would be better off in investing more capital on enhancing product value and service efficiency. 3. Leverage complementary business aspects - Your business should be known for the value it provides to customers, and resource allocation should be accordingly mapped to those needs. Leasing is an effective way to build networks and relationships, by gaining access to a plethora of business opportunities with other clients. 4. Leasing is the best option to consider when your potential for future expansion is high, avail tax benefits arising out of leasing and invest more time in nurturing innovation rather than getting tangled in managing owned assets. An integrated, flexible, dynamic business outlook requires businesses adopt leasing, rather than buying as their preferred mode of sourcing assets, and implement their business prospects in an efficient and economic manner without unnecessary overheads.

If you are Going to Soho, Read this Short Guide to the Area




The area of Soho has long been regarded by Londoners and visitors to the capital alike as one of the most vibrant parts of the city. It seems its history of showing everyone around it some jolly time has given it quite the reputation for raucous nightlife, old-school pubs and so much more. Soho is a delightful mix of busy, sexy and grubby streets, where the sophisticated meet the unconventional. A lot of famous names have made it their home throughout various periods of history – Karl Marx, legendary musician Mozart and the famous band Sex Pistols. And while ‘sleazy’ is the word everyone thinks about when they consider Soho, the area has done a great deal to move beyond that. 


Today, it is like a tourist magnet, heading towards the West End shops. Young professionals dot the landscape, as they head to work, while patrons sample the finest foods and drinks in the restaurants around. When you take a stroll around, you will be able to soak in most of the wonders of the area. Here is where you can head while you are here: 


  • Go for a stroll – when the weather is fine and you feel like it, you can check out the Golden Square and Soho Square, both of which are open. These are essentially sun traps, which usually attract many people. Be mindful of going there on the weekend, as free spots are premium. If you would much rather swerve the shade, check out the rooftops of Aqua Spirit, which is just off Regent Street. 


  • Sway off the beaten track – if you wish to try out the unusual locations, then head down to Soho’s longest-running place for tattoos – Diamond Jacks. There is also a nice 1940s themed bar at Cahoots. 


  • When it is raining – on what many would consider a regular day in London, you can go explore the ties that Soho has to the film industry. Shaftesbury Avenue is home to legendary Curzon. You can also check out Picturehouse on Piccadilly Circus. You can catch up to the latest blockbuster movies, or stop by an A-class play, both modern favourites and cult classics. There is enough to satisfy any taste. 


  • Culture trip – The Photographer’s Gallery boasts an ever-changing programme of exhibitions, a bookshop and a delightful café. Being here means you won’t feel bored for a single second. There is also the option of Soho Theatre on Dean Street. It is highly-regarded by many theatre enthusiasts. You can check out some of the best up-and-coming comedians. A curious fact is that Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag debuted here. 


  • Visit the bars – a great number of the bars in Soho stay up open till late. If you are a jazz enthusiast, then Ronnie Scott’s the place to be. If you are more into sweaty dance floors, then perhaps the atmosphere of G-A-Y will be more up your alley. El Camion is a fine bar for sipping tequilas till 3 am, so it is a nice place to visit if you are looking to stay late. 


As an area of London, Soho has managed to keep showing a unique face around. At the same time, it has soaked what the capital has to offer in terms of the environment. The result is an area that will hardly seem like any other, once you visit and stay for a while here. Soho is and will remain, an all-time tourist favourite hotspot.
