The Society Club, Cheshire Street

May 12, 2016
The Society Club, Cheshire Street.  The established Soho literary members club opens in Shoreditch with a specialist bookshop with cocktails and evening events. Dog friendly, too - the perfect East London spot to while away an afternoon reading, writing, and drinking.

  FROM SOHO TO SHOREDITCH: WHY THIS LONDON LITERARY SALON IS MY FAVOURITE READING ROOM
"If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t f**k them. Don’t sleep with people who don’t read!"    Sage dating advice by John Waters for sapiosexuals seeking similar savants. Smart is sexy, end of. So it comes as no surprise that like an moth to a flame (because so many of history's greatest intellectuals are self-destructive like that...) I've gravitated toward the new Shoreditch branch of Soho literary circle The Society Club on Cheshire Street.

What To See in Amsterdam : Five Museums you Can't Miss including Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Museum Van Loon, Venustempel Sex Museum, and Red Light Secrets: Museum of Prostitution.
SWOOP IN ON THESE FIVE AMSTERDAM MUSEUMS YOU CAN'T MISS

The four things you must do in Amsterdam is to tiptoe through the tulips at Keukenhof, check in at the uber-hip new W Hotel, enjoy these unexpected and luxurious culinary experiences, and of course soak in the best of Dutch art, design, and culture. From classic to contemporary to downright raunchy, here is my pick of the 5 Must See Museums in Amsterdam. You can easily, like I did, cover all of these in two days. Entry to some of these museums are free or discounted with the I Amsterdam City Card which also offers free unlimited public transport - but with a city this scenic, why not explore on foot?

Does my (travel) privilege look big in this?
