New? Zelman Meats opened in Soho at the end of 2015. Since then it has opened a bar in Finsbury Park (Zelman Drinks) and, in August, it took over as the latest residency on the foodie Fifth Floor of Harvey Nichols. Where? 5th Floor, Harvey Nichols, 109 – 125 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7RJ, www.zelmanmeats.com First Impressions: After zig-zagging up on the escalators past rails of too-good-to-touch clothes (I couldn’t find the lift) I then also couldn’t spot Zelman Meats straight away. Tucked away at the side near Burger & Lobster (conveniently owned by the same group, along with the pricier big sister, Goodman), a […]
What’s the best triumvirate? Alcohol, music and dance? Very enjoyable, but the potential for catastrophe is too high. Fish, chips and mushy peas? Excellent, but once the aggressive expansion kicks in, the novelty wares off…fast. No, the best triumvirate is this; football, curry and beer, that’s non-negotiable! It’s convenient then that Nook Sports Bar offers just that. And you’re not going to believe this, it gets better, it’s going to be available every Premiership Monday evening…what a wonderful establishment. Watching the greatest game ever played is bliss. Watching it with a beer is luxury. Not only does the passion escalate, […]
Opening on Monday is Aristocrat, a discerning nightclub for those in the know. And those in the know are said to be international jet-setters, fashion icons and the art elite. Taking its place on Swallow Street, debauch cocktail fuelled nights are the order of the day, (well, night if we’re being pedantic) and will only be for a select 100 at any one time. As the name implies, they want you to feel like you’re in the house of the most honourable aristocrats. Modern street art sits next to noble baroque-era backdrops. Golden skulls will punctuate the walls, whilst ornate […]
New? Formerly Belgraves, this summer The Belgravia Hotel became The Hari and with it launched a new cocktail menu. Where?

In the former, you’ll find the signature cocktail, The Hari. A blend of Jensen gin, Masala chai, honey and gold…naturally. Other offerings include The Grace, made from 209 San Francisco Gin, basil, grapefruit and grapefruit juice and Milk & Cookies, skip pudding and head to the bar instead for Belvedere vodka mixed with Frangelico, chocolate liqueur, honey […]
Wintery festivities are starting to shape our social lives so it’s out with the sun-drenched riverside boozing and in with warming drinks, winter pop-ups and seasonal festivities. Although Diwali isn’t until next week, Dishoom are celebrating a week early with an all-day celebration of food and drink on Sunday, Flat Iron Square, home to 16 venues, is finally flinging open its doors and it’s the last weekend of an interactive seesaw installation in Leicester Square so wrap up warm and get outside, it’s set to be a good one.
The Veuve Clicqout Widow Series; ROOMS. The title may not inspire, but it’s hard argue it doesn’t intrigue. Frankly, it sounds ominous, and some aspects may well prove to be, but one thing is for definite about this series; it’s different. Allow us to shed some light. TVCWS is a celebration of creative and cultural prowess, paying homage to the revolutionary madame of the house, Madame Clicquot, who was famously widowed in 1805. Clicquot was a trailblazer. After taking over her late husband’s Champagne business, she pioneered several industry innovations. It’s this creativity and audacity that continues to inspire the […]
Go out for brunch on any Saturday morning and you’re sure to see crowds of girls enjoying Prosecco and fluffy white eggs. No surprise: brunch is prime bonding time. But where are all the boys? Brunch is just about the best way you can spend your morning at the weekend but so many places focus on getting the menu right for avo and egg lovers, they end up excluding the those who have had enough avocado to last them a lifetime. Here are our favourite brunches, where meat is the order of the day instead of just bubbles and baked […]
Every day we tell you about a new venue opening, somewhere to add to your ever increasing list of places to try, if you’re going to get through them all you’re going to have to start scheduling in extra meals but for today’s opening you’re going to have to dedicate a whole weekend maybe two to eating. That’s because we’re not telling you about one new opening, nope, today we have sixteen… Like the wonders of a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner, Flat Iron Square is sixteen venues and restaurants in one space, albeit a 40,000sq ft. space. Occupying […]
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.

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 […]
