The juices on offer will […]

‘Try January’ at Pop Brixton

It seems as though Pop Brixton have been listening to us moaning about having to think up an original New Year’s resolution, and no ‘eat healthier’, ‘drink less’ and ‘lose weight/get fit’ don’t count. One that is slightly more original is ‘learn something new’ – focus on gaining rather than losing. Goodbye Dry January, hello Try January… Community focused Pop Brixton was set up as a way to bring the community together and give local and independent businesses a chance to get their work seen by like-minded people. In December it transformed into an alternative Christmas market but the fairy […]

Holborn Dining Room Review – what we thought

Holborn Dining Room was buzzing when we arrived at 6pm, normally a slow time for restaurants with things kicking off in the proceeding hours, but not here. For such a large venue, the tables were mostly filled with people even sitting around the bar. The vibe here is relaxed but smart and seems like a popular choice with workers in the surrounding Holborn area. The lighting is dim and a large Christmas tree is up giving everything a festive feel, I find it easy to settle in and get right down to ordering cocktails. My Garden of Eden cocktail was […]

The Four Thieves Review – What We Thought

As someone who is much more at home in a nice pub than a bar I was very excited when I was introduced to Clapham’s The Four Thieves, a fairly traditional pub downstairs with a wicked twist upstairs for any adult-child to unleash their inner youngster in.  As I entered Four Thieves, in Clapham I was rather confused to tell the truth, I had heard it was hybrid of a pub and a games room, but when I entered I was met by a large spacious room filled with a Frankenstein-style, eclectic jumble of random tables and chairs. Large pieces […]

Shuang Shuang To Open

Let’s start the morning with a little history lesson. Did you know that the humble dish, hot pot has over a 1000 years history in China? It’s believe that it originated in Mongolia before spreading to China during the Tang Dynasty, and it has now found itself in Chinatown on the corner of Shaftesbury Avenue and Wardour Street. Shuang Shuang, which opens in January, is the work of Fan Sundravorakul who ran a collection of restaurants in Thailand before moving to London. Occupying an Old Victorian building and split across two floors it is London’s first specialist hot pot restaurant. […]

Where to Recover on New Year’s Day
