Drawing influence from the likes of Iran and Turkey, Battersea will soon have a taste of the Caspian with the arrival of JAN at the end of June.

Santa Monica Summer Rooftop

As the mercury rises it seems that we do too. Who knows exactly why summer has us rushing to the nearest rooftop bar (even when they’re indoor) but when the rooftop in question consists of an outdoor terrace it all starts making sense. Skylounge at DoubleTree by Hilton London – Tower of London is launching its summer residency on 1st June and it takes the form of a laid-back Californian beach bar. The Santa Monica summer pop-up has food and drink at its core; whilst Californians aren’t shy of a burger they will also have chips of the kale variety. […]

VIP Partying at East London’s FSTVL

Removing vowels from names somehow manages to make an event instantly look cool and FSTVL is no exception. Add to that the fact it’s held in East LDN and you have yourself a field full of vintage-clothed ravers dancing away to Steve Angelo, Sigma, Shy FX and Philip George. Kicking off a whole summer of outdoor fun, FSTVL boasts a seriously good line-up. Split into themed areas, you can head to the ancient realm, party in a favela or tuck yourself away in the WHSE district’s techno warehouse if you dare. Moshing and mingling with the masses is all fun and games but […]

Live Music 5 Days a Week at 100 Wardour Street

Soho’s great. There’s something for everyone – whether you’re after a big bowl of hummus for lunch, cocktails after a stressful Monday or mid-week dinner with friends, you don’t really need a plan you can just roam the streets till you spot somewhere you like the look of/recognise/doesn’t have a forty-minute queue (delete as applicable). In the same way that it’s great, the choice can be a little overwhelming – where to start? You’ve probably been to 100 Wardour Street already (if not, why not?), be it for weekend brunch or one thirsty Thursday but it really comes alive is […]
