Are You All-In? London’s Most Exclusive Casinos

You know that scene at the start of Dr No, where James Bond sits at the blackjack table and calmly raises his stake to £1,000, before saying those immortal ‘Bond, James Bond’ lines as the theme tune starts up? That’s London casinos, in all their suave, black tie, glory. If you’re a high roller or just out to try the waters, then this is the place to experience some of the best casinos in the world. Here are some of the best…   Les Ambassadeurs Why: Sat on the corner of Hyde Park and Mayfair, Les Ambassadeurs Club is glorious, elegant […]

The World’s Largest Collection of Tea is Coming to Covent Garden

There’s no doubt about it, a cup of tea really does make everything better. It sits on our work desks pushing us through e-mails, lands in the hands of strangers as we meet for the first time, perches on the lips of friends as we catch up, goes hand-in-hand with our morning cereal bowls and rests on our bed side table with a good book. With all this tea drinking, it’s no surprise we’re super excited for purveyor of tea, Mariage Frères – and also France’s oldest tea house – to bring tea savoir-faire to the capital and open its first […]

If You Only Ever Visit One Wellness Hotel, Make It Forsthofalm

What: Holzhotel Forsthofalm is a bio-hotel 1050 metres above sea level in the mountains of Salzburg and probably my new favourite place on earth. Described as a “wellness hotel”, staying there nourishes the mind, body and even the environment. New? Originally a traditional Austrian restaurant in 1972 with 40 covers, the owners kept slowly increasing the restaurant in size, eventually adding in guest rooms. In 2008 the Widauer family handed over control to their son, Markus Widauer, who transformed Forsthofalm into the seven-storey wooden wonder that it is now. First Impression: From the moment I left Salzburg Airport I felt […]

The Ned Opens Its 17th Bar!

The Ned doesn’t hold back, why have one restaurant when you can have nine? And why have sixteen bars when you can have seventeen? That’s right, today The Ned is going that bit further with the opening of the Library bar, their seventeenth bar. Taking up residence on the ground floor by Cecconi’s, the bar will seat 18 guests in a space that emulates the 1930s with old-world club chairs, a bar clad in oxblood leather panelling and retro cocktail books. To drink you’ll find over 30 Champagnes, a martini trolley that will be wheeled from table to table to […]

Wimble-Done! Where To Watch The Tennis This Summer

It’s that time of year when people start popping up to say ‘it’s Pimms o’clock’ as though they came up with the tagline themselves, we all dust off our tennis whites and wonder why we don’t play all year round and the nation tees itself up for collective disappointment by putting all our championship hopes on some unlikely British wildcard who will, of course, be knocked out in week one. Welcome to Wimbledon 2018. Unless you want to wait in a queue more miserable than Andy Murray’s permafrown, or be trampled to death attempting to reach the bar at an […]

Gelato Pop-ups, Cheese Wheels and Bottomless Brunches: Summer at Bocconcino

This weather, it’s great we’ve had a scorcher of week and it’s set to continue, but here’s my British gripe about the weather. Don’t you find that London just isn’t equipped? The trains fall apart, the tubes are unbearably muggy, and most offices don’t have aircon. You think you’ll skip out of the house in a summer dress, having woken up with the sun and live life at a slower pace, read your book in the sun, have drinks on a terrace. In reality you’re stuck on a B.O riddled bus, a wasp gets near your picnic and the terrace […]
