Living in London you realised there’s restaurants and then there’s RESTAURANTS. Sure, the restaurant at the end of your street serves a pretty decent pasta bake, but that’s nothing compared with a Michelin starred chef cooking up a storm. Well, at London’s top restaurants...
It’s the weekend again… well, actually it’s Thursday but we’re putting this out early so you can roll up your party sleeves and get ready! This time around we’ve got a tonne to offer but, let’s face it, all you really want to do is grab a cocktail and sit on a sun terrace. However, if you’re pushing the boat out and fancy something like a booze cruise or bottomless brunch then we’ve ticked that box below. Ooo, the weekend has never tasted so good…
Here’s one for those who quite literally cannot live without karaoke… We’re hilarious, us Brits! We “live for the weekend” so much so that Thursday’s are becoming the new Friday, as TGIT rapidly becomes a “thing”. As tremendous as this is, Thirsty Thursday’s well and truly lead to banging headaches come Friday as you’re rushed with the realisation that it is in fact a work day and you’ve got to get your bum to the office and reply to a stomach churning display of e-mails. Alas, we’ve got a solution up our sleeves that’ll have you shotting it like it’s hot […]
Forget social climbing, welcome to social toddling, now there’s a a private members’ club that’s only for children. Unlikely to be as hedonistic as The Groucho, as A-list as 5 Hertford Street or as swanky as Annabel’s, its members will be more likely to be hospitalised than Hospital, grow faster than The Ivy and, fingers crossed, be less trampy than Tramp. Meet the kiddo club that’s basically the new Shoreditch (Wendy) House: it’s George Junior. The idea’s simple, adults have been joining exclusive clubs for generations, but George Junior takes this to a logical conclusion, extending membership from an early age […]
Chelsea has some of the best restaurant offerings around – fact! From Brasserie Gustave to Haché and Polpo, oh and not to mention Bluebird, it’s a brimming SW3 oasis of Champagne popping and brunching at Tom’s Kitchen. For this very reason, we reached out to the brand spanking new cast of Made in Chelsea who have just filmed Season 17 – ouch, that makes us feel old – to see if they ever stray from the decadent realms of their borough when it comes to cuisine. Turns out the answer is in fact yes, and they had some whopping suggestions […]
Queen Victoria was a pretty interesting woman. In her lifetime she survived multiple assassins, she was barely five feet tall, she was the first ever royal to live at Buckingham Palace and her name wasn’t even Victoria! Suffice to say there was rarely a dull day in the life of the old monarch, which is why her 200th birthday is worth shouting about… or stuffing your face with cake, either one! The Milestone Hotel & Residences has created a quintessentially British feast to pay homage to the anniversary that, we’re sure, would’ve captured the attention of Queen Vic. Head Pastry Chef […]
Astonishingly it’s estimated one third of food produced is wasted every year. Don’t get us wrong, we love indulging in lunch dates and dinners out as much as the next person. However, it’s important to be aware of our foodie decisions. Whether you’re still ordering the dessert you’ve been eyeing up all night knowing full well you’re only having a spoonful. Or if you went in too hard with the freebies to finish your mains, it’s important to reduce the amount of food we waste. To fight help fight waste, a food waste pledge has been created by The Crown […]
Rocketman, burning out his fuse up here alone… oops, sorry, back to the present! We’re just uber excited for the release of the latest movie – also named Rocketman, if you hand’t guessed – starring the fabulous Taron Egerton and Richard Madden, Brits represent! And, as a nod to the film fun, VIVI is calling all tiny dancers, island girls and, yep, rocket men too, for a limited-edition cocktail and bar bite pairing. You can tell everybody, that this is your favourite cocktail – see what we did there – because it contains the most delicious of ingredients that’d simply […]
What are you doing next Friday morning? No you’re not – cancel it, this is a pop emergency. Madonna has announced a series of London concerts and you’re going to be furiously refreshing a glitchy Ticketmaster page trying to get tickets. Here’s how to make it go smoothly. The actual queen of pop will be in Chicago, LA, New York and London for her Madame X tour and, Material Girls (and guys) that we are, we’re more excited than a virgin being touched for the very first time: Madonna, we’re Crazy For You. But first you’re going to have to […]
As sunnier climes creep up to finally drench London in a bit of well-deserved sunshine, we’re all hands on deck when it comes to the idea of a terrific terrace and a tantalising tipple. And, pandering to our post-work aperitif and glass-clinking dreams is the much-adored Dalloway Terrace; a venue that has really decided to play upon the theme of Leonard Woolf’s book, village in the jungle this summer. Offering up a ‘Jungle Lunch’ menu set amongst the flora and fauna of a re-imagined Sri Lanka, the terrace is steeped in gorgeous embellishments of giant banana leaves, tropical ferns and palm […]
