The weather is properly ON! There are people wandering the streets of Balham dressed for Bondi, we’re wearing flip flops in the office and the shops are running dangerously low on ice cream. As soon as you bust out of work, you’re going to need a plan that involves a rooftop bar. Thankfully there’s no shortage, but here are few opening or reopening in London this month.
Hands up if you’ve ever watched Mamma Mia and thought ‘you know what I could really swap Brixton/Kentish Town/Earlsfield for a Greek island right now’. Good quite a lot of you. Whilst we can’t whisk you away to Greece (although check out our travel section whilst you’re here) we can let you in on some rather fabulous Mamma Mia news. Mamma Mia! The Party the immersive dining experience is coming over from Stockholm to London. It’s your chance to feast on Mediterranean food and drink on a set which replicates the Greek tavern whilst your serenaded with ABBA songs, imagine […]
Having often told you that my beloved Fulham is rather behind on the food front (that’s to say when it comes to new and exciting offerings, we have more than our share of Sunday roasts) I am about to eat my hat, my pizza, kebab, and poké as Market Halls is opening in Fulham Broadway and I am beyond excited. Pitching up in the centre of Fulham, Market Hall will be sit in the Grade II former Edward ticket hall of Fulham Broaway station, which, for the last six years has been left vacant. Now, however, it will become a […]
He might normally make a lot of noise in the kitchen, but Gordon Ramsay has rather quietly opened Street Pizza within Bread Street Kitchen. He’s kept things casual, saying that ‘pizza doesn’t need to be complicated’ so for £15 you’ll get bottomless sourdough pizza served by the slice in five flavours: Margherita, pepperoni, charred aubergine, corn and chorizo and a daily changing special. Cocktails will start at just £6, female DJs will take to the decks throughout the week, you can’t book and most importantly (after the pizza) there’s a Negroni ice-cream machine. As Ramsay says, “If there’s one thing […]
We don’t want to jinx it, but we think (touch wood) that we might be out of winter, spring might actually be here. Suddenly exercising outside actually seems like something we would want to do, spending our Sunday mornings on a rooftop fills us with joy rather than terror at how many layers we’d need to put on. Talking of Sundays, exercise and rooftops (as you do) luxury fitness studio, DEFINE.London has just join forces with The Trafalgar St James to unveil a new wellness programme. Taking place every Sunday from the 13th May (excluding the Bank Holiday) for six […]
We love it when our favourite things are reimagined as food, we can’t help it we just like eating. And one of our other favourite things to do in London is visit the theatre, so chances are that the Oxo Tower Brasserie’s new ‘Theatre Not Afternoon Tea’, is going to be one of our most favourite things. And it’s a Not Afternoon Tea because you won’t find scones and tea, but cakes and cocktails. Inspired by London’s iconic shows, the new afternoon tea will take you on a journey of some of the most-loved productions. The first act will begin […]
As anyone who recalls their Peter Pan will tell you, the tried-and-tested route to Neverland is second star on the right and straight on ’til morning. OR, you could just wander down the Wandsworth Bridge Road, and Neverland will magically appear in the form of the UK’s least likely beach club. Neverland is back in the form of Fulham Beach Club, and it’s going to be better than ever. Since opening in 2017 this random paradise of white sand and tropical treats has welcomed over 100,000 guests onto its shores, and from next month the quirky attraction returns to it’s […]
Don’t get us wrong, we love a quirky new afternoon tea! But when the email from this or that hotel arrives heralding their latest tea, themed on Fire Extinguishers or Oversized Sports Direct Mugs (okay, you got me, I’m literally looking at items around me in the office, but that’s how random they sometimes are, like seriously), sometimes we just yearn for a simple, old fashioned afternoon tea. Then The Corinthia got in touch. Finally, no cakes shaped after Disney characters, no hackneyed links to tenuous events or celebrations, no corporate tie-ins, just a plain and simple traditional afternoon tea. […]
As Ollie Dabbous double locked the door of his eponymous restaurant for the final time and walked into the sunset, Michelin Star poking out of his cardboard box of possessions, we all knew that he’d be back. Well now he is and in serious style. Welcome to Hide. Dabbous quickly built one of London’s most sought after eating spots in London when he launched back in 2012. His wonder-restaurant seemingly came out of nowhere and raced to the top of everyone’s go-to list. Now he’s had a year in the wilderness (not quite, he launched the highly successful restaurant at The Henrietta), […]
What? Bryn Williams, the celebrated Welsh chef has just opened his first London restaurant in a decade. And it’s all about the vegetables, without being vegetarian. Rather, it champions vegetables, putting them centre stage not just a mere side dish, with meat and fish taking to the wings. New? Yes, it opened at the start of March. I’m sure its opening at the start of March had nothing to do with the start of spring and much more to do with when they were ready to do so, but a veg-centric restaurant opening when the days are getting lighter seemed […]
