The sorting hat has spoken and chosen the best selection of Harry Potter themed food and drink (yes, there is butter beer). And what is anything Harry Potter themed without puns?

The Langham Opens The Wigmore

The Romans introduced us to one of our favourite things- pubs, when they came along with the tabernae which were going to be the predecessor to the alehouses, inns, pubs and coaching houses that came after. And Londoners took to them, like us millennials now supposedly take to gin and avocados, they were all over them – at one point there were 38 pubs on Oxford Street alone. In amongst them all were the taverns, a place to socialise, drink and do business and now there is a new tavern coming to London, The Wigmore. Created by The Langham London […]

Sky High Yoga at Shangri-La

As Londoners, our lives are pretty hectic, constantly on the go, getting up early to hit the gym or beat the commute and spending our evenings at the latest pop-ups/plays or just at the pub. It’s no wonder that we often feel like we’re running on auto pilot and one coffee away from crying. What can you do? Obviously, we’re not going to be leaving London any time soon, but we can make the most of mindfulness and learning how to achieve more balance in life, including not burning the candle at both ends. Just as well then, that The […]
