The Vault at Milroy’s of Soho – What We Thought

With so many bars, pubs and speakeasies around London I often question how on earth there is space for them all. The answer, as I found out when I went to visit The Vaults at Milroy, is that some are hidden inside others and tucked underground behind hidden bookshelves (obviously!). I entered Milroy’s whisky shop and was met by blank faces when I introduced myself and asked where I should be heading. I then found out I was actually in the wrong place, and was ushered through the store and behind a bookshelf at the back. From here we descended […]

Jingle Bells Brunch at 34 Review – What We Thought

Remember when we told you about the Jingle Bell Brunch at 34? If you don’t give it a read…Well, on finding ourselves stuck in the midst of the army of Christmas shoppers on Oxford Street, a force to be reckoned with, we weaved our way out of the crowds, feeling positively Scrooge like until we reached South Audley Street and headed to 34 for said Jingle Bells Brunch. They’ve teamed up with Georg Jensen who has just opened their flagship store on the neighbouring Mount Street. Standing proudly by the doorman were two white reindeer with bright pink collars and […]

Top Heated Terraces

As much as we love our city’s weird and wonderful pubs and boozers, just because it’s now bitterly cold outside doesn’t mean that you have to curl up in some stuffy public house for drinks this Christmas. For an al fresco night of inebriation, make a beeline for one of London’s heated terrace bars. Here you can enjoy beautiful hanging gardens, wigwams, mini ski chalets and priceless views of our capital’s sexy skyline.

Christmas wreath-making at Villandry

When it comes to Christmas shopping, you fall into one of two camps: the did-it-all-in-October-shopper or the just-starting-to-think-about-things-shopper. If you are the latter, you aren’t quite at panic stations just yet so you have time to get crafty with your gifts and give your recipients something a little different to a last-minute Apple gift voucher – no one ever uses them anyway. This Saturday, Villandry are welcoming professional florist Moyses Stevens to their Great Portland Street restaurant to teach wreath making. Moyses Stevens have been around since 1876, providing flowers for the London gentry and the Royal Family so they […]

Tootsmas Christmas Market

Back for a fifth year due to popular demand (who doesn’t love a festive pop-up?), Tootopia’s Tootsmas is a two-day festive extravaganza that brings the people of Tooting the type of event that would normally be held in a more central London location. Food is at the heart of Tootsmas – let’s face it, food is what our weekends revolve around – with a whole range of trendy vendors deep frying their churros and stuffing their bao buns. The Oh My Dog! hotdog guys have some special Christmassy creations, we’re drooling at the sound of the Ho Ho Dog – […]

Le Bab To Open

The kebab, the saviour (or hidden demon) of a night out, the food that you go to when you really need a hit of meat and carbs. Well not anymore, just like burgers and hotdogs, the humble kebab is being given a renaissance with the opening of Le Bab in Kingly Court early next year… sorry you do have to wait a bit. The pair behind this revolution are Stephen Tozer and Ed Brunet who discovered a love for wood-fired cooking and charcoal-grilled meat whilst at university.
