How to Save Money Planning Your Christmas Party

Everybody looks forward to the annual Christmas Party…everyone but the person who is funding it, that is. For those drunken sheep whose only responsibility is to ‘just turn up’ they have little idea what sort of organisation skills are involved for this shindig to be a success. Nor any clue about how much it really costs to put it all together. Book Your Venue Early The first piece of advice is to book your venue early. It may seem a little keen to start organising in August, but it is surprising how many offices start early. Get in there quick and […]

Experiences & Pop-Ups

Rooftop yoga with PRESS and lululemon

Yoga and juicing are undoubtedly two of the biggest trends this summer and although nothing new, there is something about the longer daylight hours and the amount of skin that tends to be on show that makes us want to be healthy. As summer draws to a close we are trying to make the most of every minute of sun by being outside whenever possible. Cold-pressed juice brand PRESS are teaming up with yoga experts lululemon for two early morning rooftop yoga sessions to kickstart your week. Starting with an immune-boosting shot of probiotic tonic you will then get to […]

Mother Clucker pop-up

What exactly is it about street food that makes us so obsessed? All we know is that it won’t be diminishing any time soon. Leaving their Cluck Truck at home, fried chicken pros Mother Clucker are taking over the kitchens at Broadway Market’s Cat & Mutton pub for the Mother Clucker Cat kitchen takeover. Their classic fried chicken is tea brined, buttermilk soaked and twice battered which makes it so darn good and to celebrate the launch they are spicing up their menu (not in the chili sense) with new dishes and cocktails including New Orleans style fish gumbo and […]

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Review – What We Thought

When Mews of Mayfair invited The Handbook to their special Mad Hatter’s Tea Party celebration of Lewis Carroll’s famous fairytale, we were slightly apprehensive as to what to expect…just how mad would this tea party be? Mews of Mayfair is a tricky spot to find if you haven’t got the help of the brilliant city mapper app, but after walking around for a good 10 minutes, we were met by a kind waiter who wished us on our way as we towered up the steps. We waited with baited breath to see what was behind the wooden doors at the […]

Rivington Grill’s Gin Bop

What better way to celebrate last few summer days than with a night of gin? All summer Rivington have been championing gin with their Beefeater Summer Terrace but Friday 21st August sees the return of Gin Bop, a pop up celebration of the nation’s favourite drink – because it seems like our love affair with gin is not over set to end any time soon. Five pop up bars by Sipsmith, Beefeater, The Botanist, Bathtub and Bombay Sapphire will host guest bartenders showing off their skills. Each brand will be serving their own take on the classic gin and tonic […]

Oxo Tower’s Cloudy Bay Terrace

The weather might be rather indecisive at the moment, which means you need to make the most of that sunshine when it is shining and soak up the vitamin D because you never know when it might disappear. The best way to do this we think is al fresco eating – bringing two of our favourites together, food and sun.  If you haven’t been yet then the Cloudy Bay Terrace at the Oxo Tower is running throughout August and September. Then terrace features elements of the Cloudy Bay’s award winning garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year including […]

Polo Bar Review – What We Thought

Sitting on Conduit Street, The Westbury Hotel’s Polo Bar certainly knows a thing or two about cocktails having won bar of the year in the London 2014 Lifestyle Awards, so when I needed somewhere to meet a friend for drinks I thought I’d go and see if it did live up to its accolade.   Despite its art déco interior, the exterior is unassuming, the Polo sign is, dare I say it a little dated, in a sort of  mid -90s, red wine and cigarettes dated. That all changes when you’re inside though, it gives way to a smart primarily […]
