Santa Monica Summer Rooftop

As the mercury rises it seems that we do too. Who knows exactly why summer has us rushing to the nearest rooftop bar (even when they’re indoor) but when the rooftop in question consists of an outdoor terrace it all starts making sense. Skylounge at DoubleTree by Hilton London – Tower of London is launching its summer residency on 1st June and it takes the form of a laid-back Californian beach bar. The Santa Monica summer pop-up has food and drink at its core; whilst Californians aren’t shy of a burger they will also have chips of the kale variety. […]

Jazz Cafe Camden Relaunches

New venues are great but when somewhere with 25 colourful years of history relaunches it gets us even more excited than usual. There’s something about a stage that has welcomed Amy Winehouse, Lana del Ray and Gil Scott Heron that just doesn’t compare with a brand spanking new venue. Legendary Camden music venue, The Jazz Cafe, is reopening its doors on the 24th May and already the line-up is stellar. Split into bar, mezzanine restaurant and dance floor, nights at The Jazz Cafe will begin in the traditional way, with dinner in the 69-seat dining room before the show. Good […]

The Handbook Meets: John Whaite

We can’t quite believe it’s been 4 years since John Whaite won the final showstopper challenge in The Great British Bake Off with his ‘Heaven and Hell’ creation. He’s been pretty busy since then, with a cookery school in Lancashire and three books under his belt. His most recent, Perfect Plates in 5 Ingredients steers away from baking, proving he’s no one trick pony. At the start of May, John launched an afternoon tea he designed for The Royal Horseguards Hotel in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday. We caught up with the Greenwich resident to see what he loves about London, how […]
