Marie Dessuant, our first London Lives girl, has been living in south London for little over year. Despite Marie's short habitation in the capital so far, it hasn't stopped her from adopting a few regular hangouts. Here's what and where Marie loves in London.


Franco Manca, in Brixton Market, 4 Market Row, London, SW9 8LD.

I am fond of pizza and Franco Manca is probably the best pizzeria in London. The ingredients are fresh, organic and tasty and the atmosphere of Brixton market with all the little canteens is really friendly.


Franks, 10th floor, Peckham multi-storey car park, 95a Rye ane, London, SE15 4ST.

I love to have drink at this bar which is on the top of a car park building. You can enjoy a spritz during the summer with an amazing view of London.


Dean Street Townhouse, 69 – 71 Dean Street, London, W1D 3SE.

The British charm and elegance at this place is what I love the most. Each room is individually designed with hand-painted Georgian wallpapers.


Darkroom, 52 Lamb's Conduit Street, London, WC1N 3LL.

This store curates a refined selection of objects and accessories. I have a crush on the Guimard's pottery.


Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre,  Belvedere Rd, London, SE1 8XX.

I can't wait to see the Light Show exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. One of my favourite artists is Olafur Eliasson and I am also really excited to see Carlos Cruz-Diez's Chromosaturation installation.
