BL-NK: Shoreditch’s latest venue

Shoreditch has just seen the arrival of BL-NK, a three storey, 4,500 square foot event space on Curtain Road and as we head into the party season, we think you need to know about it. The venue’s aim is to support local businesses, from providing spaces to work or hold meetings to hosting product launches, press days, parties, live music and plays – they’ve got pretty much everything covered. There are a number of different sized spaces for your events including a gallery and roof terrace and through their partners they can get their hands on a limitless supply of […]

The Century – An Immersive Experience

Ever fancied living in another era? A time when gentlemen courted ladies at balls; when technology didn’t dictate our every move or when political unrest resulted in freedom and liberation. Although you don’t notice it at the time, insignificant daily changes contribute to those sudden realisations of ‘Oh My God! That was TEN years ago?’ or ‘I can’t believe I wore that!’. The Apartment at The Hoxton Hotel is hosting a really unique one-off (two-part) immersive event in November. 100 years will be condensed into ten hours over two days, with each hour dedicated to a specific decade, for example […]

The Lodge Winter Pop-Up

What do a secret garden, a wine cellar and a ski lodge have in common? Jimmy Garcia of course. The King of pop-ups is getting ready to launch his latest short-term dining experience, and this time it’s alpine. Following the success of last winter’s residency in Balham, The Lodge is back by popular demand; this time above a pub in Clapham. No warming winter menu is complete without fondues, wild game and hot cocktails, and The Lodge is delivering these aplenty. Cooking up a storm on his state of the art range, specially imported from Courcheval, Jimmy’s dishes include roast […]

Circus Themed Bar at London Cocktail Week

Trapeze artists, flame blowers, dancing elephants, dead parrots… Err, OK, all but the latter conjure up images of the magical world of the circus but bear with us and we can add dead parrots to your train of thought. For the past six months, Scotch whisky brand Monkey Shoulder have been intensively whittling down teams of cocktail experts during a variety of whisky-related (and some not-so-whisky-related) challenges for the title of Ultimate Bartender Champion. As part of their prize the winners, Dead Parrot, are hosting a circus-themed bar at London Cocktail Week, free for all to attend. As with all […]

Tiki on the Thames

Forget hats and scarves, we will be donning our Hawaiian shirts to celebrate Rum Experience Week when it arrives in town on 12th October. Hopefully bringing with it a bit of Caribbean sun, the 14th plays host to a summery daytime festival of all things Tiki: Tiki Vibes/Tiki Tunes/Tiki Cocktails. You really don’t have to be a rum expert to enjoy the day, just a bit of a rum fan. During the boat trip barmen will be shaking up some of the classic greats of the rum cocktail world; Pina Colada and Mai Tai to name but a few and […]

Rotli crew residency at The King & Co

Fish fingers with a side of peas and sweetcorn is what we grew up eating so we are ever so slightly envious to learn of more exotic childhood mealtimes. Pop-up chef duo Ben France and Aneesha Noonan began Rotli Crew after a global culinary adventure, eating their way around the world and finally settling on a modern Indian-inspired signature style based heavily on family recipes. Rotli Crew are bringing their Indian inspired food to Clapham when they launch their 2 month residency at The King & Co pub on Monday 5th October. Recipes from the duos upbringings have produced a […]

Bao Bun pop-up at Spice Market

Fluffy, pillowy, bouncy. Just a few of the adjectives used to describe bao buns, the South-East Asian street-food taking London by storm. Although nothing new to the discerning foodie, the people behind Spice Market are bringing the buns to the mainstream with their new pop-up Barley & Buns, here until Christmas. The cute little pillows of pac-man shaped deliciousness make this the perfect comfort food without skimping on creativity and flavour. Stuffed with authentic South-Eastern flavours we love; succulent soy glazed short rib, crispy soft shell crab with Asian slaw and sriracha they will make a nice little change to […]

Champagne Brunch Party at STK

When we think of brunch we think of a light, airy room with worn wooden floorboards, sugar in mini jam jars and generous plates of eggs benedict, with a hungry queue on the street outside and maybe a few screaming babies. Forget everything you know about brunch and replace it with dim lights, loud music and steak, egg and chips. Much less somewhere to drag your weary hungover self than it is a warm-up venue for your imminent Saturday night antics, STK’s new brunch menu flips everyone’s favourite meal on it’s head. DJs will set the soundtrack to your night […]

Oysters and Champagne on the Southbank

Backseat drinking on a double decker conjures up images of underage boys clutching tinnies but if you are wanting to upgrade this image with something frankly a lot classier but also a bit cheeky then we think we have the answer; it’s big, red and parked up on the Southbank. A double decker is now home to Ed Ford and Ben Hamilton’s ‘The Bloody Oyster’. A crowdfunded venture bringing oysters to the masses in street food form, the boys believe that the humble mollusk should be less of a superior delicacy and available to everyone, the way they were in […]

POP-Down at The Vaults Waterloo

Another day, another pop-up. Or it certainly seems that way. Having said that, we certainly aren’t complaining – pop-ups seem to have the kind of ‘cool factor’ that a stand-alone restaurant can rarely achieve. There’s something about feeling in-the-know that makes you feel like you can visit places every other Tom, Dick and Harry don’t yet know about. Cuisson, the people behind POP-Down are getting a bit of a name for themselves for turning the standard street-food-style pop-up on it’s head and injecting a bit of luxury and innovation, this time to a three month gastronomical residency at the Vaults […]

The Spirit Social Winter Series

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; *whisper it* summer’s over. Whilst autumn may have you reaching for the mulled wine or a comforting Bailey’s by the fire, Duppy Share rum are ensuring you can keep with you a bit of summer warmth with a series of pop-up bar events from October to December. Named after Caribbean ghost, Duppy, who, as legend has it, used to take the best of the evaporated liquid from the barrels as the rum aged – known as the Duppy Share. Canny little thing. This playfulness is reflected in the mix of cocktails being […]

This month it’s all about getting creative, it’s all about eating your art, if you were that child that was always trying to eat the plasticine or  licking the paint brush at school – there was always one, then this is for you. You’ll be eating off a palette, painting your food canvas with vibrant colours, turning your food into pieces of art […]
