Grammys 2017: Reluctant Winners, Unsigned Heroes and Powerful Protests

Let’s talk Grammys. One of the biggest nights in music, it always has promises controversies, shocks, and an overall good time. This year was no different, seeing Adele take home all five of the Grammys she was nominated for, including Best Record for Hello and Best Album for 25. But it was Beyoncé who stole the show, with an intense performance of two songs ‘Sandcastles’ and ‘Love Drought’ from her Lemonade album. Beyoncé won two of the nine awards she was nominated for, and many took to social media to profess their disappointment at her presumed snub for Best Album. […]

We Meat Again: Meatopia Returns to Tobacco Docks

Thick cut steaks, burgers and smoked racks of ribs, no this is not an advert for M&S, but a public service announcement: Meatopia UK is back. The event, scheduled for September 2017, sees the return of Meatopia to London’s Tobacco Dock to host a legendary line-up of chefs from around the world. Yes, we know it’s not even Spring yet, but tickets have just gone on sale so get in there whilst you can. The carnivorous congregation will see chefs, restaurateurs and gourmands uniting over ethically sourced meat, cooked fresh over fires (no mircowaves, no propane, but actual fires).  The […]

Selfridges’ Rooftop Restaurant Gets Wasted

The eternally popular Selfridges rooftop has just announced an innovative new partnership which is sure to keep demand as high as ever and will see it transformed into a rooftop garden exhibition. Turning to a trio of leading restauranteurs from across the pond, Selfridges are turning their attention to a hugely understated area of the restaurant industry; food waste. With 210,000 tonnes of food thrown away annually by British restaurants, there’s a whole lot more that needs to be done than just whacking a fish pie on the specials menu the day after that pan-fried sea bass didn’t quite sell […]

The Ivy Celebrates 100 Years

We won’t lie, we have been known to have multiple birthday celebrations. Let’s say your birthday falls on a Tuesday – that’s no fun. You’ll need to go for dinner on the day itself but then the weekend calls for the main celebrations, and maybe a brunch the next day for a full debrief of the night before. That makes three birthday-related events and we could probably do even more… So how do you go about celebrating 100 years? London icon The Ivy turns 100 this year and, to celebrate, are holding a whole host of events throughout the year. We […]

Exclusive Valentine’s Day Dating at TRAMP

It’s almost February and you know what that means, Valentine’s Day and if you’re single you’re preparing yourself for the barrage from friends in couples. ‘Your problem is you’re too fussy/you aren’t ready/you aren’t looking properly.’ Great. None of it is particularly helpful. You’ve exhausted Tinder, you know that the chances of the person you kissed last Saturday at the bar becoming your SO is unlikely and there are no more friends or friends of friends. So now what do you do? That’s where Social Concierge come in and it’s in the name really – they will sort out your […]

Candle Workshop with Britain’s Leading Chandler: Rachel Vosper

Have we all given up on our resolutions? Or is it just us? We’re over giving up things this year (so much so we’ve given it up), instead we’re all about learning new things. Starting with Rachel Vosper’s candle workshop at Wardian London – a botanically inspired development from Ecoworld Ballymore, which brings the outdoors in – think gardens in the sky, open air swimming pools and giant cases filled with tropical species. With celebrities and royalty amongst her fans, 20 years of experience and a range in Liberty and Fortnum and Mason, Rachel Vosper is the leading British chandler […]

Hot Cocktails at The Goring’s Winter Pop-Up Terrace

Christmas Day may be over but that doesn’t mean the festive pop-ups have ended too. Although it began back at the end of November, The Goring’s Cresta Run bar is sticking round until February, long after the indulgence has worn off… The Goring (Kate Middleton’s hotel of choice for her wedding night) is long established as one of London’s most exclusive hotels, so throw in a little old school apres ski inspired by the glamour of St. Moritz and you’re on to a winner. Can’t make it to the Alps, or waiting for some proper snow, then you’ll want to […]
