Juniper Manor: Sipsmith’s Immersive Gin and Dining Pop-Up

What exactly is it about gin that prompts eccentricity? We’re not entirely sure, other than a canny marketing strategy but our favourite London-based distillery (and the one we have to thank for this gin revival), Sipsmith, is making gin drinking a whole lot more immersive so grab your tweed jacket, tie your cravat and join Fairfax, Sam et al (Sipsmith’s founders) for their latest gin-infused drinking experience… Juniper Manor is the chosen name for the pop-up, for which Sipsmith have teamed up with Gingerline, the immersive dining experience pros. If gin were bricks and mortar we reckon it would be […]

Cuban Cocktails and Rooftop Yoga at Brixton Beach

Hot. Tropical. Paradise. Not words you’d typically associate with London but the times (and seasons) are changing and the days of sweaty summer suits are to be replaced with your finest beachwear. The highly-anticipated summer rooftop, Brixton Beach, returns for another year of faux holiday vibes, this time with a Cuban fiesta theme. This year, the ultimate urban beach, from the award-winning team behind South Pole Saloon and Big Apple Brixton, will transport wanderlust-stricken Londoners to a colourful paradise and what paradise is complete without alcohol? The Cuban-inspired cocktail menu will include Caribbean classics such as Rum Daiquiris, Piña Coladas, […]

The Prettiest Restaurants to Visit in Spring

There’s just something about bringing the outside in that Londoners find particularly enchanting. We can’t decide whether it’s because you feel at one with nature without leaving the hub of the city or whether flowers inside just make things a whole lot prettier, but when said flowers come in the form of giant installations hanging from restaurant ceilings then we are all for it. Blossom is no longer reserved for the streets of Kensington, nor wisteria to desirable Victorian townhouses – now we can all get a fix of nature as we have our dinner. ROKA Charlotte Street, has once […]

Coppa Club Launches Its Summer Riverside Terrace

One of the most talked about events in London last year (besides politics)? Those winter igloos that sprung up at the side of the Thames, quickly going viral on social media and selling out within a week. Well they’ve gone now, igloos in summer, not quite the same… instead there will be seven standalone cabanas and a huge hexagonal bar outside the Coppa Club’s riverside terrace. The pergola structures will be furnished with sofas, wicker armchairs, festoon lighting, space heaters and individual Sonos speakers. Wisteria and roses will creep up the sides of the timber frames and of course you’re […]

Sky Garden’s New Pop-Up Summer Bar

As if sky high drinking wasn’t enough, Sky Garden has announced a pop-up vodka bar to keep us occupied over a busy summer of socialising. 155m and 37 floors above the City, the aptly named City Garden will help you start your day well with a range of fresh-pressed juices and all round virtuous breakfast dishes almost as green as your surroundings. Sky Garden is London’s highest public garden so a suitably botanical cocktail menu is needed. Belvedere Vodka have teamed up with the venue to launch Belvedere Spritz City Garden Bar. Shaking up vodka-laced libations with refreshing hints of […]

Deckchairs, Daybeds and BYOB Cocktails: Fulham’s Getting an Urban Beach

Fulham. Home to Fulham Football Club, Fulham Palace, the Sloaney Pony and…not much else. We’re not anti SW6 we just think there are more exciting places that spring to mind when you think of summer drinking, dining and all round socialising.

The Handbook Meets Jimmy Garcia

Having just announced his new BBQ Club, we caught up with the King of Pop-Ups, Jimmy Garcia, to find out his secret tips for a good pop-up, his most memorable moments and what happened live on Sunday Brunch. What drew you to pop-ups? Having worked as a chef throughout school and college as well as on yachts in the summers between university, I ended up hating my job as a broker in the city. I really missed cooking for people and after reading about a guy in North London turning his home into a restaurant I thought f**k it, let’s […]
