A Boozy Monday Brunch launches at Shackfuyu

There is only one way to beat that “uh it’s Monday” feeling and that’s by starting the weekend countdown as soon as your Monday lunch time break arrives (or if you’re wise, wait until after work). Grab your bag, throw your jacket on and head to Shackfuyu to indulge in a three-course Japanese inspired brunch and..wait for it…the feast is washed down with free-flowing Prosecco finished with a dash of pineapple sake (just think, Friday is just 4 more sleeps away). That’s sure to end the Monday blues. Guests will get to choose two small plates from dishes including katsu […]

London’s Big New Foodie Destination

It started with King’s Cross, then it was Victoria’s turn to take the foodie baton but the next big area to keep an eye on is Tower Bridge. A huge multi-million pound renovation of the area is bringing with it luxury apartments on the banks of the Thames… and we’re talking serious luxury. Residents will enjoy perks akin to any 5-star hotel; think 24-hour Harrods concierge, a 20m swimming pool with white gold tiles, virtual golf and a luxurious spa treatment room, but what about food? Who really wants to come home and cook after a long day of business? […]

Pergola on the Roof is Back For Summer

Unpredictable weather in London may have us carrying about umbrellas and sunglasses but, despite the rain, we are revelling in the sunshine; Pergola on the Roof is coming back! From 3rd May, the rooftop of the Television Centre will be transformed to give us Londoners a taste of New York’s The Hamptons. After an incredible year of success which saw the original Mediterranean-inspired pergola transformed into to a Nordic winter forest, Pergola on the Roof will once again open its doors to the public, this time redesigned to give a taste of the American East Coast. One hundred feet above […]

Tooting Pop

Street Food, Live Music and Movie Marathons in Tooting

We all love a pop-up, especially one that involves food and/or drink, so when we hear of multiple pop-ups under one roof, we’re sold. Tooting Pop Ups is brainchild of brothers, Al and Nick Heathcote, of Skeleton Entertainment who founded things like Dalston’s tapas and cocktail bar, La Cabina – basically, they know what it takes to have a good night out. Street food is of course playing a key part (see, we told you they know a good time), with two residencies taking place at a time for up to six months. Tasked with kicking things off is Every Juan […]

Jason Atherton’s New Japanese-Inspired Afternoon Tea

It’s no secret that we love the idea of an afternoon tea with finger sandwiches and some warm fresh scones, washed down with a cup of English breakfast tea. However, let’s not forget that we live in London, meaning there are thousands of international culinary delights just a tube or uber away at any point, so give your afternoon a makeover this spring at Sosharu. Say hello, or kon’nichiwa, to the hottest new afternoon tea on the block. Japanese izakaya-style restaurant, Sosharu, has launched a new afternoon tea filled with both sweet and savoury treats accompanied with an array of unique […]

Hotdog Hunting this Easter at bubbledogs

When you were a kid, the best thing about Easter (besides stuffing your face with chocolate) was always the Easter egg hunt (and then stuffing your face with chocolate once again). Bubbledogs are bringing back that joy, but with an adult twist, and on the streets of London. The gourmet Champagne and hotdog bar will be hiding 1,000 Champagne-shaped keepsakes and substituting your back garden for the more spacious, albeit far less green, areas of Soho and Fitzrovia to hunt the ‘bottles’ down. These bottles will be hidden high and low, inside and out, tucked away in offices and under […]

Heinz Baked Beanz Pop-Up Bar at Selfridges

Beans, beans, good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you… Ok, enough with the bodily functions. The UK’s favourite tinned beans (or should we say the UK’s only tinned beans?) are this year celebrating 50 years since the slogan ‘Beanz Meanz Heinz’ was first penned – a little saying that has become iconic on those bluey/green cans of joy. Two million people a day enjoy Heinz beans and a can is sold in the UK every 17 seconds so it’s fitting that the occasion is being celebrated at one of the UKs most iconic department stores. Heinz […]
