The Union Jag Experience at The Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments – What We Thought

Ask anyone if spending a night at a top London hotel and then driving around in a classic British car sounds like an ideal couple of days and we think you’d be hard pressed to find someone who would disagree. This is why we were super excited to review the Union Jag Experience at The Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments. When we first arrived at the hotel, the staff were very helpful and cheerful – grumpy receptionists are never fun to deal with, so this was a pleasant surprise. The reception area was grand and opulent, yet still managed to feel […]

DJ Yoda Opens Austen’s Smokehouse

With tracks such as pizza and an album titled Breakfast for Champions we can assume DJ Yoda is a food fan and now he has confirmed it with the opening of his first restaurant this Saturday in Kensal Rise: Austen’s Smokehouse. Spread over two floors and with 80 covers as the name suggests it’s all about classic pit barbecue meats cooked slow and low in American smokers.  It’s a meat lover’s dream with USDA birskets, beef ribs, chicken and sausages all featuring on the menu. Served in milk buns, rolls, naked or as sliders all the meat is prepared in […]

34 Mayfair’s Unlimited Champagne Brunch

Legend has it that the first Champagne coupe was shaped around Marie Antoinette’s breast, whether this is true or not we can neither confirm or deny, but what is true is that 34 Mayfair’s coupe is moulded around Kate Moss’ left breast. It was commissioned to celebrate her 40th birthday and 25 years in the fashion industry. As you do. And throughout summer you’ll be able to make use of these coupe with their unlimited Champagne brunch or lunch. All you have to do is order a single glass of Champagne and then hey presto just like that you can […]

Bonnie Gull’s Outdoor Kitchen

Today could be going either way for you today. Either you’ve been allowed to work at home because nobody has time to battle with every other Londoner for a space on a bus and you’re revelling in being able to work in your PJs probably sat in your bed or you have just battled every other Londoner to get that space on the bus and now you’re flustered and your default Londoner level of passive aggressiveness has just gone through the roof.   Well forget all of that because Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack on Foley Street is here to inject a […]

Voga at Coq d’Argent Review – What We Thought

It was chucking it down with rain, it felt like the midst of winter and yet still about 20 girls made it to Coq d’Argent for their monthly Voga sessions and I was one of them. Yes I had hauled myself out of bed on a Sunday morning, battled the elements and the Sunday district line to reach the city in time for our morning exercise class. Everyone was surprisingly chipper, we were in various degrees of lycra, looking like a Sweaty Betty shop had arrived, ready to pose, dance and strike our way to fitness. I thought I looked […]

Gelupo Team Open Vico

Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo the guys behind Bocca di Lupo and Gelupo are set to open Vico, an Italian restaurant later this month in Seven Dials. We say restaurant, but the focus here is on all things casual. They’ve gone for the Italian piazza look, so they’ll be minimal seating, carnival lighting and a playful design; it’s said to be surprising but they won’t let us in on any more details than that at the moment.  In fact it’s so casual that cutlery is frowned upon, eating with your hands will finally be acceptable and there is hardly going […]

Ok enough of the health preaching, we know you know but that doesn’t mean that because you have to do it every day it has to be a boring affair. “rhubarb” is notorious for their creative not to mention delicious food and have sprinkled their creative flair on a fabulous new breakfast menu in the Darwin Brasserie at Sky Garden.
