A Weekend of Art with Brown’s London

Over 900 art galleries make London, along with New York and Paris, one of the best cultural cities in the world but most of us are guilty of counting the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House and the Tate Modern as the only ones we’ve actually been to on more than one occasion. If your summer calendar doesn’t revolve around the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition or the BP Portrait Award, and gallery owners at the Affordable Art Fair don’t know you by name then don’t fear – you can try to bluff your way through Mayfair’s latest arty event; […]

Wallpaper* Bar & Kitchen at Harvey Nichols Review – What We Thought

New? Yes, it opened just last month. Where? Project 109, Lower Ground Floor, Harvey Nichols, 109 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7RJ www.harveynichols.com First Impressions: After initially heading up to the fifth floor and being redirected back down through rails of expensive leather, artfully ripped denim and bold footwear, we found the bar to the back of the basement. Surprisingly quiet for a Friday evening, it must be more popular during the day but we were given free reign of where to sit so chose a leather banquette, tucked around the corner. Had it been busier, this would be a prime spot for people watching. The Look: A […]

Seven Sins at Cafe de Paris

From an early age, we’re raised to be good, well rounded citizens of the world. To always say please and thank you, hold the door open for others and give up our seats on the bus to those who need them. It’s these acts of moral soundness which keep the world a great place to live… but sometimes entertaining your devilish side can be good fun… With this in mind, welcome to Café De Paris’ ‘Seven Sins’ cabaret show, the erotic and titillating circus performance from the ‘Cabaret des Distractions’ series. After 92 years of providing world-class cabaret to London, […]

Covent Garden’s Friday Drinks Market

If there’s one thing a great amount of Londoners have in common, it’s the love of a drink. After work the bars and pubs are bustling with tired tourists after a long day wandering around and worn out workers looking to blow off a little steam. In a city with such a vibrant culture of micro-breweries and small-batch distilleries there’s a plethora of options available, each better than the last. The down side? So much choice means trying them all is next to impossible – you’d head to one pub for a craft beer and a completely different bar for […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

Cabbages & Roses Afternoon Tea

The urban take on afternoon tea consists of crisp white linen, polished silver cutlery and the finest bone china – you almost feel as if you’re living a moment in history but modern touches bring you straight back to the city. Whilst it possesses all the ritual as we know it, afternoon tea in the countryside is a little more rustic – antique printed linen, mismatched cups and saucers and a single freshly cut rose sitting in a little vase on the table. Iconic British homeware brand, Cabbages & Roses are bringing a touch of rural chic to The Montagu at […]
