DIY Smores, Table Top Barbecuing and Spanish Gin Cocktails

Southbank is getting a summer pop-up. We’ve seen the urban beach, the roller disco and the helter skelter but this time around there’s a foodie focus as pop-up king, Jimmy Garcia launches The BBQ Club. A walk-up BBQ bar means you can saunter along the river, Aberdeen Angus steak burger in hand, but for the real experience you’ll want to head upstairs to the rooftop dining area. A 6-course tasting menu will be prepared for guests by their very own chef at a Big Green Egg grill (aka the ultimate piece of BBQ equipment) resembling a kind of intimate supper […]

Zoilo Comes to Percy & Founders for an Unmissable 5-Course Supperclub

Few things get us more excited than the news of two foodies coming together for a one-off event. Diego Cardoso, Executive Chef at Open House (the group behind Percy & Founders, The Lighterman and The Larder) and Diego Jacquet, Chef Patron at Marylebone restaurant Zoilo, are combining their talents to bring Londoners a 5-course supper club at Percy & Founders to really get in that spring spirit. This foodie feast will begin with canapés created by both chefs before guests are treated to Chef Jacquet’s surprise starter (it’s set to be spectacular). Next is the turn of Chef Cardoso; think smoked ricotta and burrata tortellini […]

Mayfair’s Smart New Japanese Pop-Up

If you’re anything like us, you’ll have a never-ending mental list of pop-ups and supper clubs you want to visit before they disappear as quickly as they arrived. Unfortunately, despite our best intentions, this isn’t always possible – be it because everyone else has pipped us to the post (one recent pop-up bar had a waiting list of 8,000) or the run of one or two dates simply don’t work. A month-long pop-up/kitchen takeover – call it what you will – is now running, and will continue to run throughout April. Mayfair’s Avenue is hosting the event which will see […]

Sky High Champagne Dinner

Fancy yourself a bit of a Champagne connoisseur or just like knocking back the bubbles?  Either way a Champagne dinner on the 37th level of Sky Garden sounds like a pretty cracking way to spend a Thursday evening. Fenchurch will be joined by Moët & Chandon (and if you think you’re a connoisseur, then you’ll know it’s pronounced Mo-et not Mo-ay) for a six-course pairing menu, which will illustrate the Champagne’s versatility and diverse flavour. Dishes will include chicken with creamed mushrooms and white asparagus served with Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé, 1985 and line-caught mackerel tartare with oyster, monk’s beard and borage paired […]

Feast Like You’re In Ibiza at Dead Dolls House

When it comes to feasts, the Roman god, Bacchus was said to have some pretty infamous ones and whilst you won’t be able to ever experience a true Roman feast (we don’t do time travel, sorry) you can go to Dead Dolls House for their Bacchanalian feasts. The second feast sees Executive Chef Joe Hill creating  a true Filipino feast. Upon arrival guests will receive a welcome cocktail of Garden Ginpom (gin, pomelo, lemon, rose and basil) before sitting down to a four course dinner including burnt aubergine with sesame salted caramel, pork belly with oyster and an apple and walnut tart, […]

London’s First Rooftop Roller Disco, Cinema, Crazy Golf and Bowls Club

Warmer temperatures, sunny weather and lighter evenings can only mean it’s time for the return of Roof East! We don’t know about you, but we can’t think of anywhere else in London where you can watch the sunset over the Olympic Park with the city skyline in the backdrop whilst surrounded by crazy golf, rollerblading, hip hop beats, cocktails and street food. To celebrate its return, the creators of Roof East are putting on a turbo-charged social fun and games club. Last year’s attractions will all still be there but for 2017 it’ll be better than ever. Birdies crazy golf is returning […]

London’s Favourite Rooftop Cinema is Back for Summer

Summer is on its way, shout it from the rooftops! Well, four rooftops in particular: the Bussey Building (Peckham), Roof East (Statford) The Queen of Hoxton (Shoreditch) and Kensington Roof Gardens, who have just been announced as participating venues for the summer 2017 series of Rooftop Film Club. As we trade our underground cinemas for the sky-high, al fresco variety, some things never change – predominantly boxes of popcorn and an action-packed programme of cult classics and recent releases. It’s lights, camera, action (literally) on Thursday 4th May as The Rooftop Film Club presses play on films featuring iconic rooftop […]

The Ultimate Chicken Wing Competition

There are a lot of things in life we seem to wing but on this one occasion, winging it is actively encouraged. Introducing the Wing Battle at London’s only chicken wing restaurant, Randy’s. Fittingly, the restaurant is located in the Olympic Park and if you’re anything like us you will really be taking this seriously. In fact, why is wing eating not an Olympic sport…? Chefs from selected restaurants will be putting their spin on the humble wing as it is added to the menu at Randy’s for one night only, going head to head against Randy’s own. Wednesday 5th […]

Chocolat-Tea Afternoon Tea Arrives at The Montagu

We’re a tea-loving nation, there’s no denying that and according to recent chocolate consumption statistics, we seem to also be a chocolate loving nation too. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before someone created an afternoon tea made entirely of chocolate, right? Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill has done just that, the hotel has worked closely with Sir Winston Churchill’s family to redesign the hotel for it’s reopening and with chocolate being Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite dessert, it felt like a no-brainer to make a chocoholics’ afternoon tea dream come true. Let’s just call this heaven on […]

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 […]
