Fear not, because Lucky Voice has come up with a genius idea, the Christmas Party Hangover Club, which is essentially a night in, but out.

TONIGHT: The Saké Event Not To Miss

For goodness saké, did you miss the start of world saké season again? The season officially opened on October 1st, on what’s officially called Nihonshu, but don’t worry, you can still get involved. And thanks to Japanese restaurant and saké bar Sakagura, located on Mayfair’s Heddon Street, we can all be involved via their saké tasting journey. Saké is a Japanese rice wine, a sort of cross between beer and wine and a delicacy in the land of the rising sun. And here too, if you know where to get it. So why not attend Sakagura’s own mini saké and spirit […]

The Saville Row Resto That Suits Us

What: Savile Row is such a contemporary London staple that the mention of it rings with richness, enticing images of after work suit wearers sipping on red wine, propped against an up-market pub deluxe. Yes, Savile Row is the Mayfair street known for its traditional bespoke tailoring for men and on it lies Sartoria, which translates to tailor in Italian, a very suit-able restaurant discovery. Of course, Sartoria and its Italian cuisine was far from just being suitable, instead we were charmed if not bewitched by its sultry glamour. Going along on a Wednesday evening after a day in the […]

The NYC Inspired Boozy Brunch That’s Just Landed in Soho

What: There’s something rather disappointing about going back to your usual night out haunt during the day, the appeal is lost, the floors are normally sticky with last night’s drinks and the atmosphere is understandably dead. Not at Spuntino though, the Soho restaurant known for their raucous nights are giving us a reason to return the next day, they’re throwing their cards on the table with the launch of a bottomless brunch and take it from us, it’s a good one. New? Relatively, the brunch launched back in August, Spuntino itself though has been around since 2011, which for a […]

A Right Royal Brunch Arrives

Brunch just got the royal treatment. No, not a story about Meghan Markle’s latest morning routine (The Tig, how we miss you!) but instead news that Indian restaurant Jamavar will be turning their Michelin star talent toward the our favourite culinary portmanteau (‘dunch’ can get in the sea). The Royal Brunch is inspired by the seven princely states of India, and takes dishes from each very different region of the sub continent. Commenting on the new opening, Jamavar co-founder Samyukta Nair puts it like this: “Much like Jamavar, The Royal Brunch will be inspired by the Viceroy’s exuberant home in […]

You Batter Try This Yorkshire Pudding Brunch

What: There are many reasons why I love autumn, for 1) the clothes, goodbye dresses that get hot and sticky and hello jumpers, tailored coats and boots 2) no more having to spend every single minute outside for fear of not making the most of the weather and 3) you can now eat comfort food again (although admittedly eating 3 burgers and 2 hotdogs as you would at a BBQ is no longer acceptable which doesn’t seem particularly fair). And I have found the perfect comfort food brunch, at Mark Hix’s restaurant Tramshed in Shoreditch. New? The brunch launched at […]

Kahani, The Restaurant Set To Be The Talk Of Chelsea

Chelsea is set to get a new restaurant this month, Kahani, from chef Peter Joseph. Having been the executive chef at Tamarind for ten years where he helped the restaurant maintain its Michelin star, Peter is now venturing out on his own with his first solo venture and he’s secured a rather nice spot in Chelsea to start. Opening opposite Cadogan Hall, Kahani which means ‘story’ in Hindi will be inspired by Peter’s upbringing in Tamil Nadu, the southernmost state of India but will use seasonal and sustainable British ingredients as a nod to his other home. Bringing a sense […]
