Russian Winter at Hush Mayfair

As we roll into February we prepare to say a bittersweet farewell to winter and hello to spring, as the season of baby lambs, daffodils and slightly warmer weather pokes its head over the horizon. If you’re anything like us the festive period flew by in a flash of food, family, wrapping paper and alcohol, and now those dreams you had of a week on the slopes with your mates have been dashed by the cold, harsh realisation of returning to the office. But fear not – as per usual we have an ever-so-slightly novel solution to the problem we’ve posed.

London’s Top 12 Roast Dinners

If there’s one good thing about the winter months, it’s the warmth of a good roast dinner. There’s no better way of bracing yourself against the cold and the rain.

Driverless cars are coming to London

When 2015 came along everyone turned up their noses at the measly offerings of scientists that hadn’t quite lived up to the Back to the Future predictions of hoverboards, self-tying shoes and flying cars. But whilst they haven’t quite managed to master those creations their real plan has recently come to light as it appears they have been focusing their energy on creating driverless cars – which will be coming to London in the summer! That’s right; no longer will we require a designated driver for nights out or even to pay attention to the road at all. You may […]

10 Ways to Live Like a Local in Tooting

Once the shabby neighbour of Wandsworth, Balham and Wimbledon, Tooting is now the poster child of the term ‘up-and-coming’, welcoming young professionals who battle their way onto the Northern Line each morning and head into zone 1. Despite rapid gentirification, Tooting maintains a vibrant community feel now so rare (read: sought-after) in London neighbourhoods. With specialist wine bars and artisanal coffee shops aplenty, it’s no surprise that it now hosts it’s very own annual food festival, ‘Tootopia’ to celebrate the diversity of food, drink and entertainment in the area. It was hard to whittle it down to just 10 but […]

St James’s Hotel and Club Review – What We Thought

You tend to think that not many good things can come from disputes, but it’s good that the Earl Granville and Marchese d’Azeglio had an argument with the Travellers Club in 1857. And it’s a good thing that they did decide they’d rather be members of a new club and that they’d create the club themselves, because the result was the St James’s Club, which is now the 5* boutique St James’s Hotel and Club. In its lifetime it’s seen everyone from Winston Churchill to Liza Minelli cross its doors, it’s been a favourite of Michael Caine and in World […]

Super Bowl Party At Balthazar

The Super Bowl is a long-standing staple of the American sporting calendar. It’s a pretty big deal – so big, in fact, that the likes of The Who, Beyoncé, and, most recently, Katy Perry have all got in on the action via half time show performances. Well worth sitting through hours and hours of padded men running into one another in our opinion. In fact, it’s so long-standing that this year the event celebrates its 50th birthday, and as such will be referred to as the “Golden Super Bowl”, and Balthazar are making sure us over here in London don’t […]

Hotel Cafe Royal’s New Gin Bar

Alongside discontent for slow walkers, love of afternoon tea and a finely tuned ability to glare at other commuters,  it seems as if gin will always be part of London. And the next chapter in this never-ending story has just begun with the opening of Hotel Café Royal’s new bar, Green Bar Botanicals & Tonics. Taking inspiration from the Café Royal Cocktail Book compiled in 1937, the new bar will celebrate London’s history of using botanicals in gin production and mixology with a new ‘Gin Journey’ menu created by their expert mixologists. The menu will see unique takes on the classic gin and […]

9 Underrated Antipodean Restaurants

Our Aussie rellies love their brunch as much as they (seemingly) love their surfboard. No surprise really when you consider their laid-back lifestyle and the appeal of sitting kerbside in the sun, armed with a green juice, latte in a glass and smashed avo on sourdough. Antipodean brunches rarely involve alcohol, so step aside bottomless British brunches and make way for the health-conscious breed of yogis, cross-fitters and spinners in search of a well-earned caffeine hit.
