The Most Savage Review You’ll Read This Month

What: If you were expecting a review where I brutally shred a bar to pieces, then I’m afraid you have been deceived by my enticing title. This is the most savage review you’ll read this month because it is about Savage Garden, Tower Hill’s latest roof top venue, sorry to disappoint if you were looking for scandal, because it’s actually really rather good. New? Yes, it opened at the start of the summer and they couldn’t have timed it better given that they have two roof terraces with enviable views out across the Tower of London. The Look: Despite the […]

Save Yourself Holiday Hassle and Pack the Perfect Suitcase

Without doubt, one of the (many) highlights of our job is the ability to jet off to lands far-and-wide in order to experience the culture, do the occasional bit of wining and dining, and take enough Instas to keep our accounts ticking over for about a year. Whether we’re off to sun ourselves silly in Ibiza or trek across mountainous terrains in Canada, we can ensure at least one insanely jealous friend among our friendship groups weekly. However, one thing not to be jealous of is the constant battle to pack a suitcase that, for once, doesn’t actually involve the […]

Is This East London’s Coolest Hotel?

What: Bringing together the warehouses of New York with East London edge, New Road Hotel is the work of three brothers who built the hotel on the former site of a textile factory where their father once worked.  Having  been a major part of Whitechapel’s booming textile trade in the sixties, the factory closed in 2000 and was left empty until the brothers took it over in 2011 to turn it its current incarnation, complete with a restaurant from Marco Pierre White. The hotel sits just a few minutes from Whitechapel station, an area that is on the rise (partly due […]

How To Do Oktoberfest Best – The Handbook Heads To Munich

It’s leather trousers time! We’re planning our yearly Oktoberfest outing and it’s all about the lederhosen, the crowds, Bavarian hospitality and, of course, the beer. Oktoberfest, confusingly celebrated mainly in September, is an annual festival like no other. Founded in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of King Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (now that must’ve been annoying name to put into a form), the celebration just sort of caught on. By the mid 1800s it was an annual affair and has soldiered on, sometimes literally (the Nazis were big fans), and continued to get bigger and better. Today over […]

The UK’s First Chef-Less Restaurant

It’s pretty annoying when you order something at a restaurant and it doesn’t look anything like you imagined. You’re left with a sour taste in your mouth, (quite literally), and vow to never set foot in another restaurant ever again. OK, so that’s the over-exaggeration of the year (as it saying that’s the over-exaggeration of the year), but what I’m trying to say is dining out is important, it’s often pre-planned and expectations are high. This is why Gousto, the recipe box company, have come up with a novel idea in the form of the UK’s first Chef-less restaurant. The […]
