The Handbook Meets: GRIND Founder, David Abrahamovitch

With 10.4k Instagram followers, David Abrahamovitch is kind of a big deal in the London coffee scene but we’ll forgive you if the name doesn’t instantly ring a bell. CEO and Founder of the Grind coffee shops, David opened the first Grind at Old Street Roundabout with Kaz James back in 2011 and has since proved that a coffee shop can offer a whole lot more than just your morning caffeine fix. There are now 9 Grind’s across London and, thanks to a ridiculously successful crowdfunding campaign (they almost doubled their £750,000 target), this number is only going to increase. We meet the […]

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?
