STK Halloween Brunch Party

Halloween, the time when the phrase ‘dress to kill’ is apt. It’s also the theme of STK’s Halloween brunch party taking place this Sunday. Starting at 1pm, you can choose whether you’re going to nail the creepy blood and gore look, the zombie cheerleader/doctor outfit or the ‘I’m a sexy cat’ look… but there will be a make-up artist on hand to give you the extra Halloween touches and there will be prizes for the best dressed. So don’t make the error of not trying at all. Dishes will include steak, egg and chips; poached egg, avocado, chill and lime […]

Hoxtoberfest

Think of the circumstance in which your are most at bliss, comfortable and unequivocally happy. We’ve got it…you’re standing in an alpine chalet with a litre of bier in one hand and a large bratwurst in the other. Thought so. It’s a damn shame that the opportunity to be in such a desirable position is hard to come by. This weekend however, Hoxtoberfest offers you the chance to do just that. Here’s the set-up; the inaugural Hoxtoberfest will be creating a multi-room Bavarian extravaganza within a block of canal side yards and warehouses at Hoxton Docks. A full sized alpine […]

Viet Grill Launches Goat House Pop-up

From mid-October the horned mammal that is the goat will be making its way from the rural green pastures to the steel and concrete city of London. Its final destination will be Goat House at Viet Grill in Shoreditch. There the ever-gnawing vertebrate will mix with salad, swim in curry and be on the receiving end of a Vietnamese steamboat. The popularity of goat is growing exponentially hence this pop-up response. Goat House is the first all-goat restaurant and will run for a month. The basement eatery will offer guests a feasting menu inspired from rural feasting traditions representing authentic […]

7 Days Of Champagne At Gaucho

A champagne education. We know, it seems inconceivable. After a couple of bottles, taking in and retaining information under such undesirable conditions sounds awfully difficult. Regardless of its implausibility its happening. For those who don’t know a Chandon from a Jouët, Gaucho is giving you the chance to brush up on your champagne knowledge. Champagne commonly signifies a celebratory event and this week is going to be no different, well the celebratory part anyway, as Gaucho showcase the incredible range of champagne available at their restaurants. Insobriety will need to be controlled as this is 7 days dedicated to enlightenment, […]

A Celebration of Coffee at Hackney House

If you’re anything like us, your standard Saturday will sound something like this: roll out of bed about 10.30am – perhaps with a slightly foggy head – shower, dress, head for brunch where a full debrief of Friday night’s events takes place. After brunch our plans can vary, whilst we like the idea of a walk round one of London’s famous parks for a blast of fresh air, the cinema is often more appealing, as is the hair of the dog… Oops. On the first weekend of December (yep, we’re going there) you should think outside the box slightly when […]

James Martins Exclusive 50th Anniversary Dinner at The Playboy Club

English chef James Martin and Hugh Hefner aren’t necessarily two things that you’d instantly associate with one another but what if we told you James has an award-winning restaurant in the Manchester235 casino and that this year the Playboy Club London is celebrating a landmark birthday (it turns 50 this year) so needs a suitably celebrated chef to cook up a storm? Suddenly it all makes sense. Next Wednesday, an exclusive five-course dinner will be prepared by James and his team behind the scenes at the Playboy Club for members and non-members, with live post-dinner entertainment (the dance floor calls), […]

Bombay Sapphire’s Grand Journey

Embarking on a journey under the influence of alcohol isn’t unusual, in fact, it happens with worrying regularity and usually you want to forget about it. The endeavour is of course a dragon chase, and more often than not we’re at the front. Anyway, back on topic. Not all journeys involving alcohol need be predicated on escalating debauchery, as BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® prove. The world and UK’s no.1 premier gin is launching The Grand Journey; a one-off immersive drinking and tasting experience. Created by the House of Bombay and leading design talent The Robin Collective, The Grand Journey celebrates the beauty […]

Le Bun Opens with Free Burgers

Last year Andy Taylor and Tim Talbot served burgers to 10,000 guests in five weeks. This year they sold 600 Le Mac burgers on National Burger Day alone. Of course they could though, they’re Le Bun and they’re Le Back in Dalston. Following on from a summer pop-up with Kelis, the guys are setting up shop at Birthdays in Dalston for a residency that will run until 29th January next year. New dishes include mind-blowingly Nashville-style hot chicken hots made with cayenne pepper-seasoned fried chicken. Apparently they were first created in a revenge by a wife who found out her […]

Boyds Grill & Wine Bar Celebrate Slow Food Week

Slow Food Week, ironically, is fast approaching! That dreaded week where it takes an ungodly amount of time for the food to arrive at the table. If you’re unfortunate enough to be in view of the kitchen, you can actually see the waiter/waitress move at a snails pace, dishes in hand, less and less steam coming off the plate as they barely approach. We’re just playing of course, Slow Food Week is all about enjoying food whilst committing to protect the the community and the environment. In celebration of this annual occasion, Boyds Grill & Wine Bar is creating a […]
