The sound of corks popping is echoing round InterContinental London – The O2. 200 of them, to be precise, thanks to an artist who has produced a stunning new installation created from the couple hundred bottles in what must have been the most satisfying artwork to create since Warhol gorged himself on Campbell’s Soup. To celebrate, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is hosting a special art-inspired Champagne Brunch at 11am on Sunday 9th December at InterContinental London – The O2 to showcase the stunning installation created by contemporary artist Haut de Gamme, which celebrates the leading luxury hotel brand reaching 200 hotels worldwide. The installation is made from champagne bottles individually hand-painted by Alexander […]
It’s all going down at the Natural History Museum this Christmas – we’re talking sleeping over Night at the Museum style, alongside a wow-worthy NYE bash, and yoga to calm you down afterwards! Clearly not one’s to shy away from adventure, the major London staple may be informative when it comes to the historical, but boy are they party animals once the lights go down. Here’s just some of what’s on offer: Catch a Killer Whilst we really do hope this isn’t in the literal sense, Catch a Killer is presented as a game whereby a killer is on the […]
Father Christmas famously only wants to know one thing: have you been naughty or have you been nice? He will then make a value judgment as to whether your child warrants a new Nintendo or a sack of coal. And the way that particularly dysfunctional section of our legal system works is such that would leave kiddie Hitler, Stalin and Chairman Mao playing multiplayer Mario Kart well into Boxing Day. In the season of goodwill to all men, children are the most generously accommodated. But not at Harrod’s. The Santa at Harrods’s has added a new criteria to the ‘naughty […]
“Pardon my reach,” the WestJet air stewardess uttered, loading up my glass with yet more red wine as we soared over Greenland’s icy terrains across to Vancouver, Canada. Meanwhile, I reclined a comfortable amount as to not completely pee off the gent behind me, posted a few boomerangs swishing about a Champagne glass on insta-stories, and settled on the US Office for my airtime fix. A sucker for leg room, WestJet Premium sure delivers, dispelling the airplane food rumours with its selection of moreish meals! Granted, eating scones with jam and cream at ten in the morning Canadian time – […]
Claridge’s has a new Christmas tree and everyone’s going wild for it. Which is little surprise as, firstly, it’s designed by Diane von Furstenberg, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to be a design classic straight out of the box. Secondly, it’s actually quite beautiful.
However deep in the sand you’ve been burying your head this last few weeks, as soon as it turns December there’s going to be no escaping Christmas. So let’s embrace it instead this weekend. Here’s a selection of what’s going on, and be warned: there’s a lot of...
As we all know a dog isn’t just for Christmas and rooftop drinking isn’t just for summer. Bring in the heaters, wear enough layers and drinking alfresco in the nippy air watching the twinkling Christmas lights is the perfect winter date. And it just so happens that ME London’s Radio Rooftop is launching not one, but two winter terraces today, Fire + Ice in partnership with Grey Goose Vodka and Patrón Tequila. The North-facing ICE terrace is becoming a Nordic-style winter hideaway, decked out with pine, faux fur throws and with Icelandic cool vibes, but luckily not on the temperature […]
We admit it – drinking in the daytime has a bad reputation. But if brunch has taught us anything, it’s that a drink is actually pretty welcome around lunchtime. In the summer, day drinking means lounging in a sunny beer garden with an ice-cold pitcher, while in the winter it’s an excuse to get cosy with a warming bottle of red wine. And since you’re not drinking before bedtime, you probably won’t get a hangover either. Here are some of London’s best bars and pubs for day drinking:
Party season has officially started, we’ll all soon be living in a haze of mulled wine, dancing to Mariah Carey and waking up with mince pie crumbs on our pillow…or maybe that’s just us.
