Free Outdoor Cinema At London Riviera

Outdoor cinemas are all the rage at the moment and quite frankly, we can see why! There’s just something magical about enjoying one of your favourite films, or watching a ‘must-see’ movie in stunning surroundings. Plus, it’s a tad more exciting than your living room. London Riviera, the immersive food and drink experience on the Southbank, is opening its own open air cinema this September, as part of the More London Free Festival. They will be screening classic and cult films in this amazing location and the best part is, that it’s all for free! While watching one of the […]

Delicious London Launches Lick London

Ok, let’s just put it out there on front street, for The Handbook team, food is life. Not a day goes by where we don’t excitedly discuss what we’re planning on eating for lunch, talk about what restaurant review someone is going to, or beg our boss to buy office snacks (we always succeed). So you can imagine our excitement when we found out about Delicious London launching Lick London, a new gastronomic concierge service with tiered membership. Anything to bring us closer to the good stuff. Lick London is all about enjoying the best of London’s culinary landscape and […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

High Societease At Kettner’s

If you haven’t noticed from our recent coverage, The Handbook loves a good afternoon tea. Another thing you may have noticed is that this British tradition seems to be getting quirkier by the minute and the latest tea and scones offering from Kettner’s might just be London’s quirkiest and sexiest afternoon tea yet! Get ready for some scalding hot dancing and prepare to be whipped into a frenzy (it’s not just Bake Off’s Mel and Sue that can do innuendos you know) at this new High Societease Afternoon Tea. Burlesque stars Ruby Deshabille, Joe Morose, Abi Collins and Mat Ricardo will […]

34 Review – What We Thought

I love London and its restaurant scene. I love that some restaurants are just for walk ins, I love that some pop-ups are all that people can talk about and I love that some restaurants are all about the extra orders. You can also read this in reverse, I don’t like that you have to queue for hours to get in and can’t reserve, I don’t like a pop-up being so crowded you could be forgiven for thinking you’re entering a game of sardines and I don’t like it when you have to order everything as extra. Sometimes you don’t […]

2nd Dirty Bones Opens

This September our Soho foodie haven, Kingly Court is going to see the arrival of Dirty Bones on its top floor and the food is going to be well and truly dirty…in the best possible way. Forget about courgetti, quinoa and nut butter this is all about American comfort food, the sort of food that Instagram was made for, the sort of food that your cheat day/week/life needs to revolve around. We’re talking The Mac Daddy Burger – a burger topped with pulled beef short ribs, mac ‘n’ cheese and Dirty Bones barbecue sauce and Dirty Bone pickles and BBQ […]

Open Air Cinemas At Grosvenor Film Festival

We all know that there’s nothing better than cuddling up to the sofa and watching a film, right? Well, actually there is something better and that is enjoying a classic movie against a stunning outdoor backdrop. And anyway, staring at that ‘vintage’ poster your housemate bought from Urban Outfitters gets boring after a while. Presented by The Nomad Cinema in association with Chestertons, The Grosvenor Film Festival is offering beautiful outdoor spaces in Mayfair & Belgravia for your viewing pleasure. Belgrave’s Square Garden, Brown Hart Gardens and Wilton Crescent Garden will all be transformed into open air cinemas where you can enjoy […]

Doggy Disco At M Restaurant

It’s a well-known fact that as a nation, Britons are obsessed with pooches. Over the last few years, we have seen doggy apparel lines, dog hotels and even canine-friendly ice cream! It seems like the only aspect of human life yet to be conquered by our four-legged friends is the nightlife scene…that is, until now. This September, M Restaurants will be hosting a Pedigree Pooch Party with a difference by bringing the all-singing, all-dancing Doggy Disco to London with a back to school twist to celebrate the start of a new school year. Yes, that’s right, not only do you […]

The Lobster Bar opens in Hackney

Following on from their tapas restaurants Ivy’s and Little Ivy’s, tomorrow Cristine Leone and Christina Lahaniati are opening The Lobster Bar on Richmond Road in Hackney and as you can imagine there is a lot of lobster. A lot. Quirky but well put together, the menu is a fusion of nationalities, inspired by the owners’ Greek and Brazilian seaside upbringings and their mutual love of travelling and unsurprisingly the lobster is the star of the show, being served however you desire; in a roll, grilled, tossed through spaghetti… we have been eyeing up the lobster benedict. If lobster isn’t your […]
