London is brimming with the weird, the whacky and the wonderful, so it honestly comes as no surprise to find out that there’s a Champagne puking unicorn galloping its way to Chelsea this October… Yep, you read that correct. A unicorn that vomits champagne when your stroke it. So you can forget your misconceptions about unicorns throwing up rainbows (or even existing) because there’s a new trendy unicorn in town and it’s puking up Champagne. This enchanting feature is part of a new three-storey venue called Chelsea Funhouse, opening in October, that’ll be bringing a magical pop of entertainment to […]

From Idris Elba launching a cocktail bar named Parrot to David Beckham taking over a West London boozer, there’s really no shortage of celebs turning their hand to food and drink.

The World’s First Zero Waste Restaurant Arrives In London

Everyday we’re shown images of the crumbling environment, whether it’s footage of the Amazon rainforest in flames, or photographs oil spillages destroying the jet-blue ocean we’ve grown to know and love. The environment is a glorious place, and it’s in dire need of protecting from such catastrophes. It does seem, however, people are eager to do their bit to help, from replacing plastic straws with pasta and paper, or cutting back on their plastic intake. One restaurant soaring to go the extra step is SILO, the world’s very first zero waste restaurant. Doug McMaster, the mastermind behind the zero waste […]

Recently, they played upon the theme of Leonard Woolf’s book, village in the jungle. Offering up a ‘Jungle Lunch’ menu set […]

Annabel’s Raises The Roof

The ultimate pin up girl of a private members’ club, Annabel’s, has wowed many a star-studded being with its sensational elegance and vibrancy. For a certain strata, the £65m refurb at the hand of restaurateur Richard Caring and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio (The Ivy, Sexy Fish, 34 Mayfair) was hotly-anticpated, and rightly so. Exuding glamour across its many rooms including a powder room billed as the most beautiful in town, Annabel’s is the outrageously gorgeous spot frequented by all, from Mick Jagger to Madonna.
