If Champagnes were reimagined as people then Moët & Chandon would be the partier, the Great Gatsby character of the group. They’d have the biggest soirees, everyone would be invited and you’d spend the next day feeling rather sorry for yourself but also rather smug that you were there. And whilst Moët & Chandon is still just a drink, it does have its own day Moët Party Day which is taking place this Saturday. A worldwide event, over seventy countries are getting involved, with forty bars and restaurants across the UK getting ready to pop the corks including several in London. […]
COMO Metropolitan London and sportswear brands Castore and Monreal are partnering up this summer to bring fitness classes to Hyde Park and it sounds like they’re accepting no excuses.

Election results aside, one thing we can all agree on is that we need a little bit of uplifting this weekend. Luckily for us, that means food festivals, cheese markets, baking competitions and free hugs, and that’s before you take into account that Saturday is World Gin Day – so on that front think gin tastings, bottomless gin brunching, G&T ice cream and a gin-infused house party.
If you’re looking to celebrate summer solstice but can’t quite make it to Stonehenge for a 4-day camping festival then you don’t have to look any further than central London.

The longest day of the year will kick off bright and early at 4.15am on Wednesday 21st June, going on until 8.30am so you can impress your colleagues with an early morning festivity of the elements whilst still making it to work on time.

Ah, dating. As if meeting a potential match isn’t hard enough you then have to agree on a date and time (headache) – and that’s before you even decide on the venue itself. Whether you’d like to get to know each other over a cocktail or you want to impress with your putting skills, here is our guide to London’s best date venues.
If you were going to open a new bar then you’d want to get the best of the best on board – it’s not the time for half measures. You’d want to get someone like Gregory Buda from The Dead Rabbit, New York (voted the World’s Best Bar in the World’s 50 Best 2016) or someone like Richard Ryan founder of Drinksology. If you’re Richard Corrigan then you’d get both and you’d call your bar Dickie’s Bar and open it at your restaurant Corrigan’s Mayfair. Set to open at the end of this month, the bar will be a late-night […]
