LUXE City Guides

Anyone with a smart phone can track down a Michelin-star restaurant in Paris or point you in the direction of the Forbidden City. But this slim, deeply researched line of guidebooks—don’t expect maps, illustrations, or any of the otherwise Google-able info you’d find stuffed in fatter versions—specializes in the type of locales known only to the natives. It’s the kind of unabashedly opinionated editorial advice that will send you happily flying solo. And it’s executed with so much brevity and class that the guides can fit comfortably into a pocket or your carry-on.

Handy guide

I've spent a lot of time in LA, but I still managed to learn something from my guide. It's not perfect - how is Cleo, the restaurant at the Redbury missing?! - but it's definitely an 'insider's' guide to the city, and one that will sometimes take you off the beaten track. I'd definitely buy a Luxe guide if I had never been to the city before.

I received the Chicago book and seems like it would be great to carry around with me on my next trip!

I look forward to trying the tips and hot spots this guide provides. You can tell they aren't cookie cutter tourist locations. Good work BBMan.

I believe this is something designed, new traveling person.
Didn't feel it offered amazing places in the city.
