A Mediterranean Terrace is Coming to the Southbank

It’s no secret that Britain goes crazy when the sun decides to shine. Even if it’s only for a few hours, many of us will unapologetically head to the beach and soak up as much of the heat without getting any dodgy tan lines. With the recent spate of urban beaches popping up for summer 2017, the announcement of a traditional terrace comes as a refreshing change. Opening on 22nd May, Mondrian London’s Summer Terrace will be the place to go unwind and watch the sun set. Inspired by the spectacularly scenic French Riviera, Mondrian’s stylishly designed heated exterior extends along the […]

A Princess and the Pea-Themed Stay

Someone wise once said, ‘If you lose your shoe at night…you’re drunk’. Tongue in cheek coffee shop blackboards and TfL whiteboards are full of wisdom and whilst we can’t all live a real life fairytale (cocktails are just too appealing), we can now be a princess for day. In fact, call that a night. We told you about the sellout Beauty and the Beast-inspired afternoon tea a couple of months ago, but now it’s the turn of Hans Christian Andersen’s Princess and the Pea to be reimagined; as a Garden Pea cocktail (made with gin, St Germain liquor, olive oil, […]

Extravagant Chinese Dining at Park Chinois

What? The epitome of Chinese haute cuisine set in the most extraordinarily flamboyant of worlds, harking back to the 1920’s jazz emporiums of Shanghai. New? Park Chinois opened early last year after a reported £16m was spent on it. It provides a fantastical slant on Chinese food and has rekindled our love of the dinner and dance of yesteryear. Where? The restaurant boast a very discreet and mysterious entrance, yet still grand in all its detail – jade iron gates, two hefty red wooden doors with imperial guardian lion knockers, cherry blossom doorway and royal red carpet, all found in the heart of Mayfair’s famous […]

Juniper Manor: Sipsmith’s Immersive Gin and Dining Pop-Up

What exactly is it about gin that prompts eccentricity? We’re not entirely sure, other than a canny marketing strategy but our favourite London-based distillery (and the one we have to thank for this gin revival), Sipsmith, is making gin drinking a whole lot more immersive so grab your tweed jacket, tie your cravat and join Fairfax, Sam et al (Sipsmith’s founders) for their latest gin-infused drinking experience… Juniper Manor is the chosen name for the pop-up, for which Sipsmith have teamed up with Gingerline, the immersive dining experience pros. If gin were bricks and mortar we reckon it would be […]

Mayfair’s New Ice Cream Pop-up

There was once a time when we were satisfied by the classic ice cream flavours; the chocolates, the strawberries and, if we were feeling particularly wild, maybe a Neapolitan. Just like all good things, our tastes have changed and we’re looking for something with more je ne sais quois. Step in Italian restaurant Mercante. They’ve teamed up with artisan gelato makers La Gelatiera to bring a pop-up retro gelato cart to their terrace throughout the summer, as well as serving a 3-course ice cream pairing menu. Hurrah! With more flavours released throughout the summer, you’ll find the likes of honey, […]
