Secret Underground Museum Opens to the Public

If you haven’t seen our guide to London’s Secret Underground Venues then you’re in the minority. It’s one of of our most popular pieces to date – it seems being ground level just isn’t cool enough any more, instead drinking, eating and culture should take place below the streets. One of London’s busiest rail networks is about to be unearthed and opened to the public. A series of Victorian tunnels stretching from Paddington to Whitechapel may not seem like the type of place you want to while away the hours, but with temperatures soaring it might be quite nice to escape […]

VQ: 24/7 Eating in Aldgate

Even before the night tube, we weren’t very good at going bed to early and now that it’s here we have even less reason to end the night.

The 24/7 restaurant is already in Notting Hill, Chelsea and Bloomsbury and next month it’ll be opening in Aldgate in the Dorsett City Hotel. Want halloumi fries with tzatziki at 2am? No problem?
