Any reports on the newly opened Ace Hotel in Shoreditch?
Staying there 2 nights this weekend with the missus

Also anyone know if they ever release the set times for Fabrics birthday, wouldnt mind heading but the lack of knowing who's on when is putting me off & pushing me towards Zabiela @ XOYO or Tiefschwarz @ Egg on Sat night

No idea if this answers your question but I have managed to pick up several tickets from twitter, RA, FB etc before.

In London tomorrow and have a bit of free time, just a couple of hours really, going to be around the V&A area so going to Harrods (never been before, doubt there will be much of interest but going to see it anyway) but is there anything else around there, shops-wise that would be worth visiting?

DSM's not that far about 10 mins on the bus towards Piccadilly. The Library very near the V&A is interesting if you like Goth ninja stuff (you probably don't I'm guessing)
Also Margret Howell shop in South Ken and a J crew(birds shop iirc) aswell as Ralph Lauren

Cheers Rural & Evers. I'm not too fussed about getting to DSM this time as I was there not too long ago (although I didn't realise it was that close). Would like to see The Library, purely out of interest but it's highly unlikely much of it would appeal to me. Will definitely check out Howell and the Harrods food hall though.

Do they still have the "room of luxury" or whatever they call it, where everything is so expensive but so tacky ?
