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 […]

For everything from cocktails with a view to photogenic brunch spreads, here are 20 of the best restaurants and bars that opened in March… The Cheese Bar  Alfie, the bright yellow van, better known as […]

5 New Afternoon Teas With An International Twist

You can’t get much more quintessentially British than afternoon tea but, as much as we love it, sometimes we crave respite from dainty cakes and cucumber sandwiches. We don’t want a break completely though, which just as well the new spate of teas-with-an-international-twist have landed so you can indulge in scones with sweet labneh and homemade barberry, cranberry and rose jam, Atlantic prawn skagen on seeded rye, and kukicha with cherry blossom tea.

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 […]

The Diner Islington Reopens

You might have noticed that The Diner Islington hasn’t been looking like it’s normal self recently, it’s been undergoing an eight- week makeover, but now it’s ready to reveal itself to the wide world…well Islington anyway.

It’s going to be serving up all day breakfasts, burgers, shakes, craft beers and Bloody Mary’s – basically everything you need to either induce or cure a hangover. If you’re into your hard shakes then you’re in luck, they’ve got plenty of them. […]

Somehow we are already a quarter of the way through the year – how did that happen? Rather than dwell on everything we already haven’t achieved, we are going to welcome in the next quarter and spring with lots of food; we’re talking three new brunches, hot cross bun doughnuts, a beer festival and chocolate masterclasses…

FloatFit Yoga Arrives At The Haymarket Hotel

You may remember back in 2016 seeing videos over your Facebook feed of people in their gym gear trying to remain on boards in the water? Well, that is what we call FloatFit Yoga and there are classes hitting the Haymarket Hotel thanks to Aqua Physical. When you think of doing yoga poses, they can be quite difficult on the ground let alone on a floating exercise mat in swimming pool. Recipe for disaster comes to our mind or maybe the giggles of seeing your fitness buddies, fall into the water. However, it actually brings many benefits besides your stomach […]
