This is the cherished baby of ex-model Danny Karne and his sister Noshi, so it's not surprising the fickle fashion folk flock here. What keeps them coming back is the loony, decadent Look—it's a favorite location for Mario Testino photo shoots and Leo diCaprio's London forays. All the 29 beyond-theatrical rooms have their own theme: single-nation ones like Highland Fling, Casablanca Nights, War and Peace, and Indian Summer are self-explanatory; then there's Quiet Please with its trompe l'oeil wall of books and mahogany daybed; the 60s spaceship Cosmic Girl and the Honky Tonk Afro room, which, with its disco ball and fake leopardskin, is so convincingly fly that Antonio Fargas—Huggy Bear himself—will stay nowhere else. Even the tiny singles have bathroom, satellite TV, and phone, and the amazing rates include breakfast. But listen: It's not for everyone. If you want a/c, obsequiousness, and babysitting, keep away. On the other hand, if Danny likes you, he may take you for a sightseeing spin in his vintage Roller or purple Lamborghini Diablo.
