Aristocrat: The Elite’s Club

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?  The Hari, 20 Chesham Place, Belgravia, SW1X 8HQ, www.thehari.com On the Menu: The new menu is divided between The Hartinis and The Hari’s Garden.

Veuve Clicquot Widow Series; ROOMS

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 […]

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 […]

No 197 Chiswick Fire Station Review – What We Thought

New? No 197 Chiswick Fire Station opened back in April, bringing Chiswick a slice of the winning Darwin and Wallace formula – there are sister sites in Clapham, Richmond and Pimlico. Where? 197-199 Chiswick High Road, Chiswick, W4 2DR, www.no197chiswickfirestation.com  First Impressions: It hasn’t been open long but long enough for almost every lifestyle and food blogger in London to hunt down the cacti, pink suede sofas and photogenic plates of food. Because of this, the place felt familiar; it’s light, airy and undeniably cool – a lesson in interior design. It was a Saturday night and despite most of […]

Kalimera Opens in Camden Market

Before coconut oil, before the obsession with avocado and before nut butter, it was humble olive oil that was the superfood. Good fats, ideal for your hair, kind to your skin and great for your food. Thankfully then Greek restaurant, Kalimera, is making organic olive oil the star of the show. Founded by Télémaque Argyriou, you’ll probably have seen Kalimera at the likes of Street Feast and StreetDots and now he’s chosen Camden Market as the spot for his first permanent site. Using organic olive oil made on his family’s farm in Sparta in South Greece, he’ll be cooking up […]
