Talented individuals will be offered employment and apprenticeships and any one, from any background can take up work experience. Even the profits and tips will go to charities that work on building social mobility.  Alongside poet and community champion Karl Lokko, Spring Workshop will […]

Eat Out, Save Money: Top January Offers

January really is just a miserable month isn’t it? The Christmas lights are switched off and in the harsh light of day you realise just what damage those mince pies have done. Then you get back to the office you log into your bank account (because nobody needs that terror on their holiday) and oh, great, you have no money  because it all went on the ‘spirit’ (gin we’re looking at you) of Christmas. It’s not all that bad though, because the wonderful restaurants and bars of London have come together with some great offers meaning you can still go […]

2nd Redemption Opens

If you made it one of your New Year’s resolution to eat less meat, drink less alcohol, have less sugar, less wheat, go vegan or all of them (check you out) then we have the restaurant for you: Redemption. Following on from the success of the first Redemption restaurant which opened last year in Notting Hill, the second restaurant is opening in Shoreditch,  which is said to be Redemption’s spiritual home ever since their initial pop-ups proved a massive hit in east London back in 2013. The brain child of Catherine Salway  (ex-Virgin Group Brand Director) and Executive Chef Andrea […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

TeaTox at The Strand Palace Hotel

Detox, Detox, Detox, it seems we can’t escape the word now 2016 has graced us with it’s presence. Whilst we are making conscious little changes in our daily routines to be healthier, our tolerance levels are low when it comes to hearing everyone moaning/bragging (delete as appropriate) about their healthy starts and just how many scoops of spirulina they put in their protein shake post 6am workout. If you’re like us and you don’t want healthiness to interrupt day to day life too much then you’ll be pleased to hear that The Strand Palace Hotel don’t want you to miss […]

The Lighterman Opens

If you were walking along the Thames or one of canals in Victorian London then you’d see the lightermen, the workers who operated ‘lighters’, flat-bottomed good barges. This isn’t Victorian London however, this is unbelievably 2016. London has changed somewhat since Queen Victoria reigned and the corsets and Oliver Twists of our streets may be gone but you’ll still see a lighterman, well The Lighterman. That’s because the Open House( sister group to the Cubitt House group) are opening their second venue on the edge of Regent’s canal early this year. Situated in Granary Square and taking up the whole […]

Sky Garden’s Porridge Bar

We all know January is the bleakest month of the year: we’ve spent too much, we’ve eaten too much and we’ve definitely had too much to drink and now we’re meant to be all positive about resolutions and trying to change for the better whilst it’s cold and miserable outside. Joy. It’s a time to hibernate inside and eat comforting food and what can be more comforting than porridge? It’s good for you, it’s hot and soon you’ll be able to get it at Darwin Brasserie, on the 36th floor of the Sky Garden as throughout January they’ll have a […]

108 Brasserie Review – what we thought

If you head over to 108 Brasserie then make sure you do it over the weekend so you can divulge in the brunch menu which is ideal for soaking up the remnants of heavy night before or just to appreciate some midday feasting. The atmosphere is relaxed and smart and I feel more than comfortable to sit back and while away a few hours here as the attentive and friendly staff bring over various treats. Kicking off Sunday well was the delicious Suite 736 cocktail made with Cachaça, coconut rum, fresh melon, lemon & mango juice – delicious and refreshing. […]
