Nothing is what it seems… no we haven’t turned our hand to fortune reading (although that could be quite the business venture), that line is actually the ethos behind MNKY HSE, a new bar and restaurant that opens next week on the former site of Dover Street Wine Bar in Mayfair. Fitting name, given it’s the year of the monkey. Set across two floors, it’ll serve Latin American food alongside live music and DJ sets. The black outside door with a monkey head knocker will lure you into space which is set to be dramatic, luxurious and talked about. The […]
Callooh Callay opened its doors back in 2008. An unassuming little bar (from the outside) down a side street in Shoreditch, Callooh Callay is known for its modern interpretations of traditional cocktails so it’s no surprise that the word soon spread that what was happening inside was really quite good. Not to mention that wardrobe that leads to a second bar. Fast forward a few years and it is a regular in ‘Best Bars in London’ (and beyond) lists and has just won “Best Cocktail Menu in the World” at the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail awards – pretty much the Oscars […]
You might not know who Dominique Ansel is but chances are you know what he created back in 2013. The Cronut®, one of the best inventions in modern times. The Cronut® is of course that flaky, sugary, delicious hybrid of a croissant and a doughnut and now Dominique is bringing his New York bakery to London and it opens tomorrow. Along with the Cronut® they’ll be serving up their classics like Frozen S’mores, DKA (Dominique’s Kouign Amann) and Cookie Shots – shot glasses made from cookie, lined with chocolate and filled with vanilla milk. Forget hangovers, these will induce sugar […]
With a whole host of awards under its belt, if you’re after Indian food then Bombay Palace definitely needs to be on your list. Having opened back in 1981, the restaurant has recently undergone a remodelling and is now opening its doors once more. You’ll now find a lounge and bar, as well as a private dining area with space for up to 45 diners; it’s smart with crisp white tablecloths, large artworks and shimmering pendant lights. Award-winning Harjeet Singh carries on as head chef and he certainly knows a thing or two when it comes to Indian cuisine having […]
This weekend is filled with food and beer and lots of it. Are we complaining? Certainly not. Start with cookie shots from Dominique Ansel’s bakery, party with Jack Daniels, get yourself a free beer from Camden Town Brewery, celebrate World Sake Day and finish with STK London’s Champagne brunch party.
London is looking good right now. It’s still sunny, there is that renewed back to school feeling as summer finishes and autumn starts. The leaves are turning golden, it’s feeling more crisp but we haven’t hit the miserable, rainy season yet. So there is still time to go for drinks outside and we know where we are heading too – Sanderson’s Enchanted Hanging Garden. They’ve teamed up with Perrier Jouët to create a garden in their famous courtyard, plants will be floating, suspended and adorning the living wall. At the heart of the garden will sit a striking string centre […]
Mother Nature nailed it really didn’t she? You have to have hand it to her, she did a pretty great job. Benjamin Meyer and William Heath like to think so too, as this is the philosophy behind their new venture Counter Kitchen. Opening on 3rd October, Counter Kitchen will be keeping raw, natural flavours at its heart as they serve up nutritious food without any empty calories. Heading up the kitchen will be Matt Edwards (Quo Vadis, Fino, The Harwood Arms) who will be serving up the likes of avocado on toast served with cucumber kimchi and almond butter toast […]
Classic French cooking, a strong emphasis on fish and a seasoning of fun. What’s new? you’re asking. Sardine is creating a potential saviour for the worst day of the week by taking on the staples of French cuisine: on the last Monday of every month the restaurant will be celebrating a wonderful ingredient or French occasion. It’s only a slight diversion, but one with a grand feast as the final destination. Embracing ambition and creativity, chef Alex Jackson and co. will be kicking ‘La Grande Bouffe’ off with none other than the Bouillabaisse. To lay on the most grandiose of […]
