Tapa Room review – what we thought

When wandering up Marylebone High Street trying to find The Providores and Tapa Room, it suddenly made itself known with a sizeable queue of people filling the pavement outside. We nipped inside to secure our booking and saw, as expected, that it was rammed inside. Luckily we were seated quickly and starting browsing the brunch menu which is available 9am-3pm at the weekend.Feeling a bit wild I went for the Sweetcorn and blueberry fritters served with avocado, pomegranate and rocket salad. Sweetcorn and blueberry does seem like an odd mix but it somehow works, the avocado is joined by chunks of […]

Your Event Photography Sorted

From the classic saying ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ to the number of photos that are posted on Instagram and Facebook every day, it’s safe to say that we’re obsessed with images, but whilst it’s easy to take the selfie and filter it beyond recognition, where do you go when you actually need a photo that won’t just be seen by your Snapchat followers? Step in Red Photographic, the leading innovative photographic company, they specialise in event, business, sports and experiential photography. Currently you’ll find them at the Rugby World Cup (yep, we aren’t jealous at all) and later […]

Champagne Brunch Party at STK

When we think of brunch we think of a light, airy room with worn wooden floorboards, sugar in mini jam jars and generous plates of eggs benedict, with a hungry queue on the street outside and maybe a few screaming babies. Forget everything you know about brunch and replace it with dim lights, loud music and steak, egg and chips. Much less somewhere to drag your weary hungover self than it is a warm-up venue for your imminent Saturday night antics, STK’s new brunch menu flips everyone’s favourite meal on it’s head. DJs will set the soundtrack to your night […]

The Best Champagne Bars in London

In the words of Brigitte Bardot; ‘Champagne is the one thing that gives me zest when I feel tired’ and we couldn’t agree with her more. Not only does it have fewer calories than any other alcoholic tipple but it can’t help but make you feel sophisticated, not that we needed any excuse to divulge in a glass or two. Whether it’s pink, with strawberries or your everyday classic Moet, we’ve rounded up our favourite Champagne Bars to go and enjoy the good stuff. And good stuff it has to be, we’ll be able to tell if it’s ‘Charlemagne’….

3rd Ceru Opens

First we’re told that we’re going to have an Indian summer, next thing it’s lashing it down with rain and we’re told that it’s going to be the coldest winter for fifty years… ah British weather, that fickle old thing. Well the one place that is determined to keep the holiday mood going is Ceru, the Eastern Mediterranean restaurant. They’re opening their third restaurant on Canon Street next week and they’re big fans of summer. Vibrant Levantine food, craft beers, artisan coffee and of course cocktails are going to be the order of the day. Executive Chef, Tom Kime (River […]

Oysters and Champagne on the Southbank

Backseat drinking on a double decker conjures up images of underage boys clutching tinnies but if you are wanting to upgrade this image with something frankly a lot classier but also a bit cheeky then we think we have the answer; it’s big, red and parked up on the Southbank. A double decker is now home to Ed Ford and Ben Hamilton’s ‘The Bloody Oyster’. A crowdfunded venture bringing oysters to the masses in street food form, the boys believe that the humble mollusk should be less of a superior delicacy and available to everyone, the way they were in […]

POP-Down at The Vaults Waterloo

Another day, another pop-up. Or it certainly seems that way. Having said that, we certainly aren’t complaining – pop-ups seem to have the kind of ‘cool factor’ that a stand-alone restaurant can rarely achieve. There’s something about feeling in-the-know that makes you feel like you can visit places every other Tom, Dick and Harry don’t yet know about. Cuisson, the people behind POP-Down are getting a bit of a name for themselves for turning the standard street-food-style pop-up on it’s head and injecting a bit of luxury and innovation, this time to a three month gastronomical residency at the Vaults […]
