November 2014 Openings

November is a peculiar month. Despite the fireworks that grace our skies on bonfire night, there is not a great deal to be excited about, especially after weeks of preparing for Halloween. This doesn’t mean that you have to sit at home and sulk though. Grab your sparklers and make sure you check out some of the capitals latest openings. From lobster at Fraq’s, to stuffed gyoza at the new Bone Daddies in Kensington, there a heap of new openings to add some fire into a rather dreary month.

The Athenaeum’s Paddington Bear Tea Review

In celebration of the new Paddington Bear film (I’m very excited) the super plush – and family friendly – Athenaeum hotel is launching a specially themed afternoon tea, featuring none other than Paddington Bear himself. You even get your very own Paddington Bear toy to take home with you, which for someone over the age of 12 I was probably a little too excited by. The Tea is served in their luxuriously cosy Garden Room, where the windows look out onto their ‘living’ wall (very cool) and everything is a wonderfully warming tone of cream or orange – quite apt […]

Goode & Wright Review

At first glance, Goode & Wright is in a cracking location on the Portobello Road not from the Electric. The site is small but cosy and the restaurant is styled as a French bistro drawing in a mixed crowd from the Notting Hill area, giving it a fun and relaxed feel.  Already well known as a brunching haunt for hungover weekenders (I hear the chef’s special, Eggs Benedict, is a “must try”), the management team (who also own the site) have been ramping up the dinner menu and will soon be serving cocktails in the evening by the Talented Mr […]

Athenaeum launches Cocktail Catwalk Collection

If you ever needed an excuse to visit the elegant 5 star Athenaeum Hotel on Park Lane, the launch of their Cocktail Catwalk Collection must surely be it. In a nod to September’s London Fashion Week SS15, the bar team has created 5 new cocktails with inspiration taken from the patterns, colours and combinations of style that they saw on the catwalk.

All of the drinks should be enjoyed in […]
