On the streets of London, the fact that it’s game season probably doesn’t mean that much to you, but it should, it’s a chance to enjoy some of the best produce Britain has to offer, luckily The Jugged Hare is ensuring that even us Londoners can get involved. The gastro pub is dedicated to enthusing and educating its diners about game and this season their authorial stamp on the season will not be challenged due to an extensive line up of dishes (Game Bomb), specials (squirrel) and activities (Gourmet Game Suppers). As well as a season-long menu there will also […]

It’s Monday morning so you might not want to think about cocktails right now, but sorry this is a special occasion. It’s the start of the seventh London Cocktail Week! The Cocktail Village will be back with over 200 bars from across London serving up cocktails for £5 (but make sure you have your LCW pass, get them on the website) and there will be events happening across the city – we would list them all here, but that would be a very long list, so here are five our favourite events happening this week! Jones Family Project: The Shoreditch bar […]

Nothing is what it seems… no we haven’t turned our hand to fortune reading (although that could be quite the business venture), that line is actually the ethos behind MNKY HSE, a new bar and restaurant that opens next week on the former site of Dover Street Wine Bar in Mayfair. Fitting name, given it’s the year of the monkey. Set across two floors, it’ll serve Latin American food alongside live music and DJ sets. The black outside door with a monkey head knocker will lure you into space which is set to be dramatic, luxurious and talked about. The […]
Callooh Callay opened its doors back in 2008. An unassuming little bar (from the outside) down a side street in Shoreditch, Callooh Callay is known for its modern interpretations of traditional cocktails so it’s no surprise that the word soon spread that what was happening inside was really quite good. Not to mention that wardrobe that leads to a second bar. Fast forward a few years and it is a regular in ‘Best Bars in London’ (and beyond) lists and has just won “Best Cocktail Menu in the World” at the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail awards – pretty much the Oscars […]
With a whole host of awards under its belt, if you’re after Indian food then Bombay Palace definitely needs to be on your list.

You’ll now find a lounge and bar, as well as a private dining area with space for up to 45 diners; it’s smart with crisp white tablecloths, large artworks and shimmering pendant lights. Award-winning Harjeet Singh carries on as head chef and he certainly knows a thing or two when it comes to Indian cuisine having […]
This weekend is filled with food and beer and lots of it. Are we complaining? Certainly not. Start with cookie shots from Dominique Ansel’s bakery, party with Jack Daniels, get yourself a free beer from Camden Town Brewery, celebrate World Sake Day and finish with STK London’s Champagne brunch party.
London is looking good right now. It’s still sunny, there is that renewed back to school feeling as summer finishes and autumn starts. The leaves are turning golden, it’s feeling more crisp but we haven’t hit the miserable, rainy season yet. So there is still time to go for drinks outside and we know where we are heading too – Sanderson’s Enchanted Hanging Garden. They’ve teamed up with Perrier Jouët to create a garden in their famous courtyard, plants will be floating, suspended and adorning the living wall. At the heart of the garden will sit a striking string centre […]
