The Rock is a bespoke by request restaurant that only pops up at the hotel for very VIP or special occasions.
OLO in Finnish means Feeling. At OLO Ravintola (aka. Finnish for restaurant) something is very fishy, and not in a bad way. If I would have to choose my favorite Finnish gourmet while in Helsinki, I would not hesitate for a second to say OLO Restaurant. Michelen star restaurant offering a modern Nordic gourmet cuisine experience. A set menu to showcase the amazing fresh fish from the region. Clarity of design and generous flavours as known from their grandmother’s times. Their menu follows the yearly cycle of the Nordic nature, bringing to the table only what is at best at a given time.
Finally I have found my favorite hang out venue in Stockholm. When I travel I am very territorial, and always like to have my set of restaurant and bar, where I can enjoy great drinks, have a fabulous dinner and be surrounded by a chic/cool crowd and ambiance.

Only 15 minutes away from Plage des Salins and 20 from the port of St Tropez, you will arrive to Plage Pampelonne and to the exclusive and chic Club 55. Literally the who is who, Be and Be Seen stop in this region. In my mind I had the idea, being low season, that I was going to be there practically on my own, well I couldn’t be any more wrong. The place was SOLD OUT. The ambiance is quite chic, but not pretentious of stiff at all. I would say that following my path of stunning iconic chic restaurants worldwide, Club 55 has join my list to TOP social spot along with the Copacabana Palace (Rio de Janeiro), Polo Lounge (Los Angeles), Frankies (Istanbul), La Huella (Punta del Este) among a few others…
