Where To Go To Make Your Bonfire Night Go With A Bang!

‘If you can’t be first, be best’, so we’ve decided be first and get in early with a guide for where to book this bonfire night. It may be 21 degrees outside (genuinely! What’s going on?) but in just under a month we’ll all be huddling in the freezing cold, clutching sparklers in our mittens. And here are the best places. Alexandra Palace When: Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd November What: Ally Pally’s firework display is legendary. Not only is it a huge display, the views across the capital are nearly as stunning as the pyrotechnics. And its not just […]

Real Life Mario Kart Arrives In London

Who’s your motor racing hero? Lewis Hamilton? James Hunt? Senna? Well if your answer, like mine, is Mario, Luigi or Donkey Kong then you’ve come to the right place! Nintendo’s incredibly popular video game franchise has been brought to life and is coming to London. Fending off a potential patent dispute, it’s officially called Mushroom Rally, and it looks flipping awesome. Participants dress up in costumes incredibly similar (they’re near-identical but officially they’re just ‘similar’, coz lawyers) to Super Mario characters and whizz around on go-karts avoiding tortoise shells, banana skins and what-not as they go to be the champion of […]

Enrique, Ronaldo and Nadal Walk Into A Bar…

Off the back of Usain Bolt-ing to open up a restaurant, David Beckham and Guy Ritchie buying a pub and Idris Elba squashing 007 rumours by instead opening a bar, it’s safe to say it has been quite the celebs-turn-hospitality led few months. So, why not throw Enrique Iglesias, Cristiano Ronaldo and Rafael Nadal into the mix, eh?! Yes, we scoffed at the random prospect but the news is true. The threesome, whose looks don’t stray far from triplet-dom, are financially backing Zela restaurant in Covent Garden; a restaurant we’re sure people are going to flock to for more than […]

Five Reasons You Need to Book This Michelin-Starred Brunch

Award-winning Michelin-starred restaurant Galvin at Windows has recently launched a brunch menu and of course being the brunch fans that we are, we needed no excuse to head to the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane to take on the menu. It’s Their First The Saturday brunch menu launched this September, some twelve years after the restaurant first opened and it may come as a surprise, as brunch is a staple of Londoners’ weekends, but this is Galvin at Windows’ first brunch. Rather than jumping on the band wagon, Head Chef Joo Won and his team took […]

Oktoberfest In London: The Best And The Wurst

Surprisingly for a country that seems to be constantly panicking about cultural intrusions from abroad, we’re all over Oktoberfest. The German import sees us dress up in bizarre Bavarian dress (wipe-clean leather overalls for men and booby serving wench dresses for women) and drink copious amounts of beer, so the attraction is clear. Here’s where to get your Oktoberfest fix in London. Electric Ballroom Camden’s Electric Ballroom will be offering beer, sausages and teutonic tunes for two nights only for 3,000 revellers. The iconic venue will be fully-decked out as an Oktoberfest beerhall with long wooden tables, bunting and steins […]

London may have the world’s best bar, but catch it while you can because it’s shutting down!
