In the basement of Harrods a new space has opened for the men. With a different concept to the rest of the Harrods department store, the feel of the space is far more contemporary in its looks and feels very masculine with the steel, concrete and mirror surroundings. It houses exclusive ranges from TopmanRaf by Raf Simons, Diesel and G Star and also a great selection of denim  including 7 for All Mankind and Natural Selection (a personal favourite).

Whilst browsing the rails, we were served delicious cocktails from the barman at 69 Colebrooke Row (the bar with no name). The main ingredient was a vodka like spirit which is pretty potent so beware…

The Mens Lab will also host various different events with DJ’s and upcoming bands in the dedicated music area. You will hear no complaints from your other half if you send them there to browse and buy whilst you get on with more important tasks, things like shoe shopping on the 1st floor.
