To kick off the series, VAULT have teamed up with Time Out for their ‘Time Out presents: I’m Coming Out’ party.

We caught up with Kurobuta’s owner, Scott Hallsworth, to find out his five favourite Chelsea restaurants which will satisfy any foodie.

A Pre-Work Dance Party Comes to West London

Wake up. Hit the snooze button (x3). Feel guilty about skipping the gym. Sound familiar? Us too. Running or cycling or lifting weights facing a white wall can just get so boring. That combined with the comfort and warmth of our beds just makes it really difficult to get out the front door in the morning. But there’s this phenomena that has taken over New York and East London; it goes by the name of Daybreaker and is a pre-work (sober) dance party now making it’s way to West London. Still, getting up early for a dance party sounds like hard work. […]

Patty & Bun Opens on Richmond Road

‘New Year New You’, we’re not interested in that rhetoric, nope, but we are interested in the new Patty & Bun, who are closing their London Fields site (they just got too big for the venue) and are moving just around the corner to Richmond Road to bring even more burger, beats and booze. Yasss. They’re keeping some of the same elements at the London Fields arch – the long, communal tables which will cater for up to 50, but they’ll be adding in a little bar to serve up happy hour cocktails and craft beer on tap and there’ll […]

Chi Kitchen’s Special ‘Tai Chi’ menu

The menu promotes health, wellbeing and most importantly, balance – much like Tai Chi. So to balance out the healthy chicken and Chinese herb soup with goji berries, enjoy a deep fried tuna and avocado sushi roll. Or to balance out the quinoa salad with cucumber, cherry tomato, egg, […]
