Sipsmith’s Summer Gin Cocktail Masterclasses

Back in January, we were sitting on a fairy lit terrace beneath the stars of Soho, armed with steaming glasses of hot gin cocktails. Our love of Sipsmith Gin has remained firm since their brief stint on the rooftop of The Ham Yard Hotel but, since then, unless you spot the swan bottle on a backbar or make your own G&Ts at home (and they’re never quite as good as when the pros do them) there was a distinct lack of Sipsmith in our lives. Until now. Partnering up with the swanky Met Bar at Metropolitan by COMO, Sipsmith are […]

The French Riviera Lands at The Mandeville

London is great for many reasons, you know that, we definitely know that, we don’t need to list them all. However, for now let’s just say one of the reasons we love London is, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have the time or money to get away you can still experience different cultures right on your door step- take for example The Mandeville and their fifth floor makeover which has come over all French Riviera on us. Haute couture fashion house, Christian Lacroix, (under the creative direction of Sacha Walckhoff) have been collaborating with Designers Guild since 2011 and […]

Blades At Hush Review – What We Thought

New? Hush isn’t new, having opened in 2000, but the Blades dining area only opened last month.  Where?  Lancashire Court, 8 Brook St, London W1S 1EY www.hush.co.uk On the menu: Blades is primarily all about steak, lobster and whiskey. A choice of three different cuts of meat are available, each available in two different breeds, Angus or USDA, and each with the option of being served alongside a half lobster.

Legs Open in Hackney

Now before your mind falls into the gutter let us explain exactly why Magnus Reid’s (founder of CREAM and formerly of The Rooftop Café) new restaurant is called Legs. Legs are the droplets that form on the inside of a wine glass (the Gibbs-Marangoni Effect) where the drinker can tell the alcohol or sugar content depending on how fast or slow they trickle to the bottom. So there you have it. Let us continue, Legs will be opening in Hackney’s fashion district, serving up a daily-changing menu that focuses on fresh, nourishing produce in a light, casual space. If you […]

John Lewis Open Their Oxford Street Rooftop

If John Lewis did a pop-up we don’t doubt it would be somewhere we’d ever want to leave. With Christmas seemingly their most talked-about time of year, the brand who never fail to impress are turning their hand to something a little different, a little more summery, and a little more temporary. Known for their partnership scheme, their latest ‘partner’ is award-winning experimental pop-up venture, Night Tales, the people behind Summer Tales and Tokyo Nights in Shoreditch. Resembling what we imagine to look like the ‘outdoor summer dining’ section of the John Lewis catalogue, the Gardening Society pop-up will centre […]

Late Nights at Dirty Bones Review – What We Thought

New?  Kensington and Soho have been getting dirty for a while now but the Dirty Late Nights have only recently launched – every Thursday, Friday and Saturday both venues have extended hours, meaning more time to eat, drink and be merry.  Where?

The Belvedere Balance Bar at The Hoxton

Life is about balance like a cocktail in one hand and a…well another cocktail in the other hand. The Hoxton Shoreditch is taking advantage of the sunny summer months (perhaps don’t look outside to see though) with the launch of Belvedere Balance Bar located in their garden space. The pop-up will be home to a bar serving healthy new summer spritzes, alongside a series of wellness activities (Core Collective classes, foodie demos with Farmacy and Step Up confidence coaching) that anyone can sign up for, which also include a free cocktail…as we said it’s all about the balance.  On Wednesday, […]

Queen of Hoxton’s Psychedelic Summer Rooftop

If there’s one thing the world needs right now it’s more love. It seems every time you turn on the news there’s another story of tragedy, heartbreak or woe, and it’s about time someone sorted it all out. More than a generation has passed since the glorious Summer of Love, when peace, flower power and psychedelia ruled and Queen of Hoxton has decided it’s time we all took a trip back in time to pay it a visit. They’re transforming their rooftop bar into a spiritual utopia, capturing the magic and love that made the 60’s such a fantastic decade. […]
