Rooftop takeovers have swept over the city; from west to east there’s barely a rooftop untouched by Pimm’s, Prosecco and Aperol Spritzes. The issues arise when trying to decide which pop-up is worthy of whiling away your precious Friday night. Perhaps one boasting Michelin-starred chefs can convince you? Enter Harvey Nichols with their Michelin Star Terrace Takeover. The month-long event will see resident ‘Live In Italian’ chefs take over the kitchens, celebrating the best of Italian cooking, each Tuesday in July. Ollie Dabbous of Fitzrovia fine dining restaurant, Dabbous, is kicking things off tonight (Tuesday 12th July) with an innovative […]
Working out is not always quite as pleasant as we would hope it to be. Far too often we hop out of bed and head to the gym in the hopes of releasing some tension and much-needed endorphins only to have our zen dreams squandered by crowded treadmills and displeasing grunts surfacing from the weight machines. Lucky for us, aqua nueva is providing an alternative means to getting that summer body, even if the gloomy London weather prevents us from ever actually showing it off. Regent Street’s stunning rooftop terrace at aqua nueva will be hosting a #FitnessBrunch series on Sundays where ticket holders can participate in an […]
The weekend is almost upon us…it officially starts on Thursday night.

It’s good to see you again weekend!
If there’s one thing all Brits love to do – it’s drink. Whether that be a gin and tonic in the middle of a cramped club floor or a spot of tea on Sunday afternoon, it’s undeniable that our weekends (and admit it, weekdays) are brimming with liquid delights. And thanks to London’s most beloved flatmates at The Little Yellow Door, we don’t have to decide whether we want to revel in one love versus the other. The friends will be throwing open their yellow door on Saturday afternoons to host a Notting Hill cocktail tea party, complete with quirky alcohol infused pots of […]

You’d be forgiven for thinking that new restaurant Bronte was named after one of the sisters, but no this isn’t some London homage to Heathcliff, rather it takes its name from Lord Nelson, who stands only a stone’s throw away in Trafalgar Square. He was of course also known as the 1st Duke of Bronte and it’s his naval career that provides inspiration for the restaurant opening on 1-3 Strand. Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter and Head Chef Jonathan Villar have created a global menu that has Pacific and Antipodean influences with mains including rare breed beef burger with chilli miso […]
Often one of the best things about a business is its story. Take Backyard Cinema, for example. The spectacular series of music and film screenings first started as a homemade project in a backyard garden and has grown into one of London’s most recognised cinema experiences and now Backyard Cinema is returning to the cobbled streets of Camden this August for a fourth year. So grab a bean bag and your favourite craft beer and prepare yourself for an extra special cinema experience, with the perfect combination of hard-hitting biographies, live concerts and featured films. Of course not being an ordinary cinema, they’re not […]
It’s time to look to the heavens and thank the food lords, or in this case, Darwin, which is 36 floors up in the sky (Sky Garden to be precise), as yet more delicious Freakshakes have hit the menus of London. This time appearing on Darwin’s new brunch menu alongside bottomless bloody Marys and Prosecco, will be the increasingly popular Freakshakes in three new flavours. The Freak Dough is a moreish shake of salted caramel with a whole doughnut perched on the rim in case you were craving that extra sugar kick; Freakin’ Macaroons, is a tropical mix of coconut […]
Long gone are the days of gimmicky sombreros and rainbow ponchos tacked onto the walls, as sophisticated, modern Mexican restaurants are beginning to make their welcome debuts into the London foodie scene. A far cry from the typical ‘Tex-Mex’ cuisine, refined Mexican menus, such as the one at new restaurant Peyotito, are transforming the way the capital views Mexican food in the most positive of ways. And thankfully, tequila is still a staple. Peyotito is launching as a local stalwart in the heart of Notting Hill situated in a light, intimate and casual surrounding… You’ll find it by the neon […]
Nowadays, the boundary between food and wine is becoming increasingly blurred – if the food itself isn’t worthy of a photo then the restaurant’s interior design probably is. If you want more from your meal than just a full stomach and slightly lighter wallet then why not visit one of the restaurants below, who each have as much of name for themselves in the art world as they do in the restaurant world. From iconic Damien Hirst installations to masterpieces from old Scottish masters, read on to see where you can get a dose of art with your starter – no […]
