Rum & Sugar Relaunches

When the global ambassador for rum says that your rum bar is ‘one of the best places to drink rum in London’ you know you’re on to a good thing. We’re talking about Rum & Sugar and it’s just undergone a relaunch. Housed in an urban, historic warehouse, which once imported goods from the West Indies -we’ll give you two guesses what… It’s now home to a restaurant that captures the spirits of the carnival islands. They’ve got over 200 rums to choose from and new rum cocktails – we’ve got our eye Nelson’s Blood made from Dictador 12-year rum, […]

Break the Code to Get to The Bletchley Bar

The concept of The Bletchley bar was inspired by Alan Turing, Sherlock Holmes and Bletchley Park, which acted as a base for codebreakers during WWII and was run by the Government Code and Cypher School. The Bletchley on the other hand, will act as a base for imbibing. It’s from the same team behind The Bunyadi, London’s first naked restaurant; ABQ, the bar inspired by Breaking Bad; and Annie’s Owl Cafe, so you can expect something quite whacky! At the bar, guests operate an ‘Enigma Machine’ which decrypts their personality, taste, desires and odour preferences. The code is then transmitted […]

Baluchi Opens at The Lalit London

In their overseas venture, The Lalit have decided to bring with them their restaurant Baluchi. And we can tell you now, it was a very good decision indeed. Executive chef Arup Dasgupta has travelled the world, sharpening his skills (and knives) at each stop. The menu he’s created is unlike anything London experienced before – it presents cuisines from all parts of India, from Kerala and Goa to Rajasthan and Delhi. A lot of the dishes are based on family recipes handed down through the generations, of course all using the finest ingredients. So rare Indian ingredients will be used […]

Fall Off the Health Wagon at MEATLiquor

MEATliquor has been doing some research, they’ve been delving into our spending patterns and noticed that on the 30th January for the past three years there was a significant spike in the sales of the most calorific items and cocktails sold. Probably because after 30 days of healthy eating and detoxing and after getting so close to the end of January we all decide to just finish a day early – well, we’re only human. So, this year they’re encouraging it – because what difference does one day really make? Nothing. Head to any MEATliquor and ask to Fall Off […]

Blues Kitchen Host The Ultimate USA vs UK Food Competition

After a few drinks let’s face it, all we really want to do is dance. It’s always harder than you think though to find a bar in which your cringey moves are acceptable but there’s always one we can rely on; Blues Kitchen, you never fail us. Embracing the particularly topical subject of the USA, the Southern-inspired bar/restaurant is hosting a unique collaboration with Brooklyn seafood hotspot, Extra Fancy, for three nights only. Seeing out Dry January in style, the Surf vs Turf Wars will make cocktail making a whole lot more competitive than usual as mixologists battle it out […]

London is certainly the place to start. With eight cook books to her name and a restaurant in Mexico City, Martha Ortiz is one of Latin America’s most exciting chefs and now she is coming to London. Featuring some of the dishes found in Dulce Patria (her Mexico City restaurant), the menu mixes traditional […]

Candle Workshop with Britain’s Leading Chandler: Rachel Vosper

Starting with Rachel Vosper’s candle workshop at Wardian London – a botanically inspired development from Ecoworld Ballymore, which brings the outdoors in – think gardens in the sky, open air swimming pools and giant cases filled with tropical species.
