DESIGNING ROOMS Currently on tour for his album Hotel, Moby has seen his fair share of check-in desks. So what would his ideal hotel room include?"Big windows looking out on Lake Geneva, and curtains that block the light," he says.
SLEEPING WITH THE BAND Moby camped out at the K West Hotel & Spa (Richmond Way; 44-870/027-4343; www.k-west.co.uk; doubles from $175) during his London shows. "It has become a rock-and-roll hotel," he says. "Whenever you stay there, you're bound to see at least five other bands. Needless to say, the bar scene tends to be really fun."
EAT YOUR VEGGIES For this outspoken vegan, who owns a café himself, in New York, called Teany (90 Rivington St.; 212/475-9190; dinner for two $30), finding a decent meal on the road is challenging. "Most cities have good vegetarian restaurants, although it can get tricky," he explains. "In the old part of Lisbon, Terra-Restaurante Natural [15 Rua da Palmeira; 351-213/421-407; dinner for two $28] has a fantastic vegan buffet. And after our concert in Moscow, we had a great meal at Jagannath [11 Kuznetsky Most St.; 7-095/ 928-3580; dinner for two $35]."
