Our Type on Paper: The All New Love Island Dish

Goodbye Summer plans and goodbye life, as Love Island returns to our screens for another smattering of ‘ladies in the streets, freak in the sheets’, I’VE GOT A TEXTTTTT, new bikini every day, snogging and ‘she’s a right sort’ drama. However, if anything is bound to lure you out of the Love Island fire pit, it’s got to be The Total Melt, and no that isn’t a reference to Muggy Mike. Totally and utterly our type on paper, Absurd Bird have launched the Total Melt, which is just as outrageous as Camilla’s eyelashes were towards the end of season three. […]

House Party at Madame D’s

Who doesn’t love a house party? If last time you went to one it involved a bottle of mixed drink stolen from your parents and S Club Seven booming from the speakers, rest assured this one is a little different. Madame D is hosting her summer party extravaganza. No, she isn’t a French lady who fancies putting on a bash, but a restaurant with food interpretative of that prepared by Chinese-Tibetan immigrants in India. Madame D’s current landlord has secured the restaurant a 4-year extension as they move into their Spitafields site, which is definitely a reason to celebrate. Gate […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

DUKES MarTEAni Afternoon Tea

An opportunity has arisen for you to be as suave as James Bond, Frank Sinatra and… Homer Simpson. What does this trio have in common? Well, they’re all renowned martini sippers of course, and now you can get your fix too. Afternoon tea provides the perfect opportunity to indulge, but you sort of feel better about the whole indulgent affair because everything is mini. That’s what I tend to tell myself anyway. To celebrate World Martini Day, which falls on 19thJune, DUKES is introducing The MarTEAni (get it?) Afternoon Tea, in partnership with the East India Company. We all know […]

A Garden Full of Gin at The Wigmore

I’m not sure when National Gin Day became a thing, but boy am I glad it has. A whole day celebrating one of the nation’s favourite spirits, and a completely valid excuse to sip, (and sip, and sip) on gin all day? Sounds pretty good. Sharing in the excitement is The Wigmore, a modern British tavern by The Langham who have partnered with Plymouth Gin to bring us a whole garden of the good stuff. Their botanical haven will feature climbing plants, self-garnish pots and yes, you guessed it, an enticing amount of gin. Gone are the days when we […]

Now Airbnb Is Doing Concerts

Is London falling silent? Not so much the Big Issue Sellers, the taxi drivers shouting obscenities and drunken hen and stag dos singing but the music that has made the city a global powerhouse of music and culture for decades. The figures would suggest it is, and according to the Music Venue Trust, approximately 35% of music venues in the UK have closed their doors over the past decade while many others are at risk. Hence Sounds Like London. Launched last month by Sadiq Khan, Sounds Like London is a programme taking place across the capital and comprised of gigs and events […]

Things to do Outdoors

Mayfair’s Live in the Square Turns Theatre Inside Out

There’s something about sunnier climes that sees us take all things traditionally done indoors and do them outside instead, but who’s complaining right? Well, say goodbye to the awkward shuffle past many a frustrated observer as you attempt to go to the toilet mid-Madame Butterfly. Outdoors is the answer as a line-up of ballet, immersive theatre and music, twirls, jiggles and juggles its way into Mayfair’s Grosvenor Square for Live in the Square. The event will be Grosvenor Square’s outdoor festival debut, perfectly timed as we celebrate the 400thyear of the legacy that is Mr William Shakespeare, a man whose musings […]

Wine Down at Bordeaux Butterfly Bar

Famed for its wine growing region, Bordeaux is rich in rolling vineyards, an abundance of bars and, let’s face it, has over-all wine superiority (did I mention it’s also now labelled the Cité du Vin, to boot?). So, it’s hardly a surprise we’re wanting to have a slice, or glass if you will, of the action. Introducing the Bordeaux Butterfly Bar, the vino haven popping up in Finsbury Avenue Square, set to spread the wine wings of its guests with its selection of over 26 wines. Whilst we can’t promise the sunny climes of Bordeaux, the warmth on your back whilst […]
