A Weekend Full of Whisky

We’re all guilty of it: refilling a half empty glass of wine with a completely different bottle. Your friends turn their nose up at you but actually they would probably never have been able to tell anyway. You’re not mixologists but actually it may not be as rookie as you think. For centuries, the malt masters of deepest Scotland have been doing exactly this as professional whisky producers; mixing different blends of whisky together to form unique (and soberingly expensive) bottles of Scotch. Oval Space and The Whisky Lounge are hosting their third ‘Whisky Weekender’, London’s most dramtastic whisky event […]

Watch Romeo and Juliet in a Candlelit Church with Live Choir

With the dawn of spring, it makes the anticipation of summer all too great. Long, warm evenings, picnics, outdoor festivals and live screenings… Here at The Handbook, we have the perfect event for you to look forward to, and we do mean really forward – it’s in July. Back by popular demand, Backyard Cinema is returning to W1 to screen Shakespeare’s world-famous, Romeo and Juliet complete with sofas, deckchairs, popcorn, ice cream and a fully licensed bar.

London Coffee Festival Returns

It’s Monday morning which means one thing – nothing is getting done until we’ve had our coffee. In fact, that’s pretty much our daily mantra. And this love is nothing new, as early as the 1600s London was home to coffee houses where Londoners would meet to debate, gossip and sort out business matters. Safe to say that the coffee scene is still strong in London, it is after all home to the largest coffee festival. Taking place on the 7th -10th April at The Old Truman Brewery the London Coffee Festival is a must for any coffee aficionados or […]

Eat the Movies: Cinema Supper Club

Ever drooled at a scene in a movie? Does the pasta Julia Roberts eats in the Italian part of Eat, Pray Love give you serious carb cravings? Bridget Jones have you reaching for the Ben & Jerry’s? We bring you news of an event that combines two of our favourite things: film and food. PECKish is a supper club with a twist that serves the audience of a cult classic film a 5-course meal, inspired by the movie itself. No more on-screen food envy. Each month shows a different film – March is the turn of one of the all-time […]

‘The Raw Chef’ Hosts Supper Club at Tiny Leaf

Food with the word ‘tiny’ associated to it wouldn’t normally sound that appealing but when the tiny in question is Tiny Leaf, the new organic, zero waste restaurant in Notting Hill, we’re all ears. Formerly associated with hippies in hot countries and people whose ovens have broken, raw food is now widely noted for it’s health benefits, not to mention one hell of a jaw workout. Although Tiny Leaf isn’t exclusively raw, it is vegetarian. Enter Russell James, the UK’s leading ‘raw chef’ as he hosts a series of raw, plant-based supper clubs at Tiny Leaf, beginning this Friday. For […]

Number 90’s 4 Day Birthday Party

If we could have a 4-day birthday celebration we absolutely would. Day one would be an all-day warm-up; we’re envisaging friends, family, drinks, live music and ice cream. A dry-ice ice cream van to be precise… Although that’s the only thing that would be dry – lots of cocktails are a necessity. OK, OK, this all sounds amazing but it isn’t completely a figment of our imagination, it’s Hackney Wick bar and restaurant, Number 90’s 2nd birthday extravaganza. Turning 2 is something to celebrate, so why not go all out with four days of partying? Each day has a slightly […]

Secret Cinema Welcomes Danny Boyle

We recently told you (as much as we could) about Secret Cinema’s “Tell No One” showing but now things are a little less… secret as we bring you news of their latest production in the ‘Secret Cinema Presents’ series, starting with Danny Boyle’s cult classic, 28 Days Later. Whilst we love spontaneity and surprise, there are some things we would rather be prepared for, and this is one of them – you may be a bit shocked if you turn up expecting Bridget Jones and are presented with this post-apocalyptic thriller instead. But not as shocked as you will be […]

Bluebird Hits the Slopes

Walk down King’s Road on a freezing cold day and you may suddenly feel like you’re in a ski resort with the amount of Canada goose jackets and furry pom pom beanies on show. Favourite Chelsea haunt Bluebird is hitting the slopes of Val d’Isere for the second time as they team up with Club D&D for a grown-up University-style ski trip, but a little bit more civilised. After a Friday night out and hungover Saturday brunch, a weekend spent in London basically flies by, so a long weekend spent in the Alps sounds like a great idea for some […]

The French Riviera comes to The Gherkin

The sun is now setting at 5.30pm, slowly restoring our faith that the winter won’t last forever – we’ll be complaining of sweatbox tubes and hayfever in no time. The first little glimpse of summer is something to get excited about – Searcy’s at The Gherkin are transforming the space into the French Riviera, circa 1950. The era of glamour and sophistication is coming to the London skyline, 180 metres above the city for a six week duration. Walking out of the elevator you’ll be hit by gentle wave noises, palm tree reflections and an abundance of cocktails – you’ll […]

The Dirty Double Birthday Party

What did you do for your second birthday? Can you even remember your second birthday more like? We’ll hazard a guess at pass the parcel, too much sugar and tantrums. It definitely wasn’t like Dirty Bones Kensington 2nd birthday which is coming up, that’s for sure. Happening this Thursday they are celebrating two years of cocktails, American comfort food and tunes with The Dirty Double birthday party. The night will start with a present from them to you, in form of a complimentary ‘Forgot to blow out the candles’ birthday cocktail followed by new dishes. Start with beef short rib […]

Rio Carnival comes to Guanabara

While the temperature fluctuates between -3 and 10 degrees making us weep in despair at having to face another 2 months of this, there is a very colourful light at the end of the tunnel. We may not be able to hop on a plane to the tropics of Brazil but thanks to Guanabara, the sights and sounds will be headed our way in the shape of Rio Carnival – now if we could only get the sun over too. For seven days Guanabara will play host to non-stop festivity with a variety of events, from live percussion bands and […]
