Make Way For The Cosiest Bar in London

Londoners seem to love a secret bar. We know, you just can’t seem to get enough. Anything with ‘secret’, ‘underground’ or ‘hidden’ in the title, invariably means a whole host of people will flock to said location, only to be disappointed that a hundred other people had the same idea. But that is a thing of the past. Set to become Tooting’s best kept secret, The Hill Station could be the cosiest bar in South West London. We mean, cosy. The bar only has a 12 person capacity and is hidden away in Broadway Market. Brought to London by the Heathcote Brothers, […]

Cooking up a storm: TMRW Project Presents the Chefs of Tomorrow

There’s not many things we Londoners love more than food, new places to eat, and talented chefs with shiny new menus – that’s exactly what Chefs of Tomorrow is promising. Started in 2015, Chefs of Tomorrow was Dan Doherty’s (of London favourite Duck and Waffle) idea to find a way for young chefs to grow, develop and connect with each other and others in the industry. He has since teamed up with writer Anna Sulan Masing and Emily Underwood (of Burnt Truffle) for a collaboration entitled the TMRW project.

Selfridges’ Rooftop Restaurant Gets Wasted

The eternally popular Selfridges rooftop has just announced an innovative new partnership which is sure to keep demand as high as ever and will see it transformed into a rooftop garden exhibition. Turning to a trio of leading restauranteurs from across the pond, Selfridges are turning their attention to a hugely understated area of the restaurant industry; food waste. With 210,000 tonnes of food thrown away annually by British restaurants, there’s a whole lot more that needs to be done than just whacking a fish pie on the specials menu the day after that pan-fried sea bass didn’t quite sell […]

The Ivy Celebrates 100 Years

We won’t lie, we have been known to have multiple birthday celebrations. Let’s say your birthday falls on a Tuesday – that’s no fun. You’ll need to go for dinner on the day itself but then the weekend calls for the main celebrations, and maybe a brunch the next day for a full debrief of the night before. That makes three birthday-related events and we could probably do even more… So how do you go about celebrating 100 years? London icon The Ivy turns 100 this year and, to celebrate, are holding a whole host of events throughout the year. We […]
