Suffice to say, a lot of good things can be achieved when a tantalising trio comes to the forefront – The Oblique Life being one of them. What the heck is this, you ask?

An evening well spent is typically one where you’re elevated above London’s bustling streets and positioned sky-high, Champagne in hand.
