London’s Raunchiest Immersive Show Has Arrived

Meow! Theatre company, House of Kittens, has returned with a whole host of raunchiness and erotic storytelling with new venture Amatory Asylum. Intrigued? Well, let Dr Lili La Fleur, head of the Asylum and presiding physician of sexual psychological studies, stir you in the right direction… The theatre company seeks to dazzle with its exploration of performance art, with shows designed to examine and interpret the endless expression of pleasure. As The Telegraph so knowingly puts it: “The time could well be ripe for sexing up British theatre.And for those who are curious, a whole menagerie awaits.” If you’re still […]

ROKA Still Has Serious Wow-Factor 15 Years On…

Does anyone else use iPhone notes to make listicles of all the London restos they want to try? I certainly do. And, amongst a hubbub of alternate cuisines flooding my notes, from naan at Dishoom to sushi at Nobu lies Japanese at ROKA which, on a tipple-filled evening in September, I finally had the pleasure of putting to the test. When German-born chef Rainer Becker extended his love of the Robata grill to the ravenous mouths of Londoners back in 2004, it’s doubtful he knew just how successful his Charlotte Street restaurant would become. Fast forward 15 years and we were […]

Galvin At Windows Just Got A Whole Lot Sexier…

Found on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton, Galvin at Windows is widely considered to be one of the city’s best hotel restaurants. Its popularity unsurprisingly stems from the floor to ceiling glass windows that open it up to the London skyline, as well as the equally alluring presence of dishy general manager Fred Sirieix (when he isn’t moonlighting on Channel 4’s First Dates, that is). Following a successful thirteen years at the top of the restaurant scene, Galvin at Windows has recently decided to take its offering to new heights and revamp its bar. Enter 10º, romantically […]

Enoteca Rosso Is Kensington’s Very Own Wine Tardis…

Enoteca Rosso; once I’d wrapped my head around the name, I wrapped my lips around a whole lot of wine glasses. This chic Italian doesn’t let you leave hungry and is a pasta strand away from guests having to sleep in the restaurant from carb overload. The fine food and fare comes with a side dish of charming staff with engrossing tales of their heritage at their helm, all of which can be enjoyed whilst sipping a Tempranillo. The spacious Kensington restaurant delights with its wine bottle lined walls, best described as being like a Scandi-style cellar. Imaginative Italian food […]

Hey There Hot-Tea! Take A Trip To The Mystifying Mariage Freres

Quite frankly, I love tea. Every morning I simply must have an Earl Grey (I know, how pooosh), otherwise I struggle. I’m not the biggest coffee drinker, so tea is my go-to, be it minty, fruity, loose leaf, tea bag heavy, I’m all over the stuff, and I am that person who takes teabags in their suitcase when going on holiday. No shame. And, it seems I’m not alone in my love of tea, it’s thought that in Britain we drink 165 million cups of tea a day (however, I’m not sure how they work this out, sounds a bit 1984 […]
