Secret Underground Museum Opens to the Public

If you haven’t seen our guide to London’s Secret Underground Venues then you’re in the minority. It’s one of of our most popular pieces to date – it seems being ground level just isn’t cool enough any more, instead drinking, eating and culture should take place below the streets. One of London’s busiest rail networks is about to be unearthed and opened to the public. A series of Victorian tunnels stretching from Paddington to Whitechapel may not seem like the type of place you want to while away the hours, but with temperatures soaring it might be quite nice to escape […]

The Handbook Meets Richard Corrigan

Ahead of the opening of Dickie’s Bar, we caught up with the man behind it, Richard Corrigan. Chef patron of Corrigan’s Mayfair and Bentley’s Sea Grill, he’s won two Michelin stars, numerous awards and has appeared on the likes of Great British Menu and Great British Food Revival. We talk cocktails, secrets to success and how the restaurant industry has changed. You’re opening Dickie’s Bar in June, why did you decide to open a new standalone bar? Quite frankly I have always been a barfly and enjoy an intelligent tipple, also I believe that you need to constantly be evolving […]

VQ: 24/7 Eating in Aldgate

Even before the night tube, we weren’t very good at going bed to early and now that it’s here we have even less reason to end the night. Things that do inevitably sends us home: one too many cocktails, having to get up for work and feeling hungry. Yes, we could get a kebab, or we could go to VQ. The 24/7 restaurant is already in Notting Hill, Chelsea and Bloomsbury and next month it’ll be opening in Aldgate in the Dorsett City Hotel. Want halloumi fries with tzatziki at 2am? No problem? Need a sticky toffee pudding fix at […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

The Afternoon Tea for Meat Lovers

We can’t say we’ve ever walked out of an afternoon tea and not felt ten pounds heavier but sometimes half-hearted sandwiches and soggy scones just don’t satisfy emotionally. And yes, we fully believe afternoon tea is an emotionally-charged experience. Say goodbye to cucumber, farewell to smoked salmon and replace your fillings with the heartiest options of all: get set for the meatiest tea in town. Steak destination, Heliot Steak House are proving that tea doesn’t have to be dainty as they put their spin on sarnies, pastries and drinks. The restaurant have incorporated their signature 28-day aged USDA prime steak […]

Moët Party Day is Back

If Champagnes were reimagined as people then Moët & Chandon would be the partier, the Great Gatsby character of the group. They’d have the biggest soirees, everyone would be invited and you’d spend the next day feeling rather sorry for yourself but also rather smug that you were there. And whilst Moët & Chandon is still just a drink, it does have its own day Moët Party Day which is taking place this Saturday. A worldwide event, over seventy countries are getting involved, with forty bars and restaurants across the UK getting ready to pop the corks including several in London. […]
