A Taste of Rio in Hackney

One thing Britain is truly Great at is pubs. You don’t have to walk far in any part of London before a George and the Dragon, Kings Head, Fox & Hounds… You get the picture. A new spot in London Fields is combining the pub with the humble corner shop and the outcome is Rio Boteco. Since it’s not a standard pub, the grub here consists of authentic Brazilian tapas and street food dishes like slow cooked ribs, salted cod fishcakes and Bolo de banana with cinnamon ice cream and, instead of a pint, (although craft beers are available – it […]

New? The latest addition to King’s Cross’ Granary Square, The Lighterman opened back in March. Where? 3 Granary Square, King’s Cross, N1C 4BH www.thelighterman.co.uk  On The Menu: In the ‘pub, dining room and bar’, the all-day menu is Modern British and the kitchen is headed up by Executive Chef Diego Cardoso.

The Chap Olympiad

There’s nothing better than a dose of healthy competition. It brings people together, gets the adrenaline pumping and leads to an overwhelming sense of personal achievement. A lot of competition revolves around sports, strength or intellectual superiority, and there’s not a lot of space for those just wishing to showcase their gentlemanly prowess. Until now, that is. This summer, our city’s most elegant and un-athletic are gathering to compete in an event of “sporting ineptitude” in order to be crowned a champion of old-timey raucousness.  The point? We’re not entirely sure either, but it’s going to be jolly good fun! […]

How to Have Tea with the Queen

Chances are we won’t ever be having tea with the Queen, but that doesn’t mean we can’t prepare just in case the occasion somehow arises… probably best if you do the same too.   The Fans of London campaign (launched by Hilton, British Airways and London & Partners) to create a series of series of London experiences for super-fans based around four themes – Royal, music, Harry Potter and Shakespeare and they’ve joined with Conrad St James to host etiquette lessons so that we all know how to behave when that day comes and we have tea with the Royal […]

How to Live Like a Local in: Dalston

Dalston is now often considered the new Shoreditch – an attractive mix of community, culture and cool. Nightlife is up there with the best (and latest) in London, street food is well and truly alive and buzzing and wherever you roam, you’re never more than a few steps from great jerk chicken. As usual, this isn’t extensive (there are far too many good places for that) but here are our choices for how to do Dalston, the local way.

Four Seasons’ Secret Veuve Clicquot RICH Garden

One of the best parts of summer is the fact that when you leave the office it’s still light. The sun is (hopefully) still shining and that means one thing, you can make the most of London’s terraces for after work drinks and we know where we’ll be heading next: The Secret Garden at Four Seasons. Why? Because they’ve just launch their Veuve Clicquot RICH bar. Decked out in Veuve Clicquot umbrellas and cushions, the terrace (which is one of a kind in Mayfair) is filled with an array of begonias, clematis, salvias and scented jasmine – it’s all very Instagrammable.

The Four Sisters Townhouse Opens: Darkly Dickensian

One of the reasons that London is the best city in the world (yes, we’re bias but we’re also right*) is the fusion of old and new, the fact that futuristic new builds sit right next to historic buildings from years gone by. Look one way and you’ll see the bright lights of the city, look the other and you’ll be walking down a cobbled lane that Dickens would have frequented and it’s Dickens’ novel that provides the inspiration for The Four Sisters Townhouse set to open at the end of June. Tucked away on Bow Lane (which features prominently […]
