Meatballs. They’re the deliciously moreish balls of meat that are so simple yet so desired; perhaps aided by their famous appearance in that adorable Lady and the Tramp scene. Now, because why not, there’s a meatball speakeasy opening up in London which isn’t all that secret because we’re raving about it on The Handbook! Named Ballroom, the venue will inject a whole lotta Italy in our capital in the form of meatballs, meatballs and yep, you guessed it, more meatballs. The vibe is New York, the destination is underground and the opening date isn’t all that far away! Yes, May […]
Cirque du Soleil, are bringing their army of talented acrobats, colourful sets and unique storytelling ability to one of the most iconic venues in the world. What’s more, they’re bringing with them LUZIA, a production that presents the places, faces and sounds of Mexico. What’s more, it looks incredible! The Royal Albert Hall will be transformed into a dreamlike world where an old movie set becomes the ocean which becomes an arid desert or smoky dance hall as LUZIA brings an imagined vista of Mexico to the stage. They’ll be adding in some never-before-used elements, including incorporating rain into the […]
If you’re a parent of small children, you know the drill. You’ve spent the best part of five months staggering through darkness, cabin fever tantrums and bouts of norovirus. And then the first remotely spring-like day occurs (over 10 degrees; not pouring with rain) and you begin to slowly emerge from your unsolicited hibernation and the kids start going bonkers with excitement because they can’t believe there is life beyond the telly and baking cupcakes and ooh isn’t the magnolia lovely and yes I suppose we can get an ice cream (it’s nearly 12 degrees after all) and that’s when […]
It’s the talk of the town, or the city if you will. The big opening. The one-to-watch. The restaurant from the man who loves an expletive and claims his least favourite sandwich is an idiot one. Yes, Gordon Ramsay’s got a new restaurant opening named Lucky Cat in June but we, as the greedy foodies that we are, got to sample some of the offerings ahead of time. Lucky Cat will be an “authentic Asian eating house” and will replace Maze, the Ramsay restaurant that currently resides in Lucky Cat’s location. Ramsay lived up to all chef stereotypes upon meeting him, […]
Easter, a time to reflect and celebrate on the death and resurrection of Jesus and the saviour of mankind. Which translates as a time to stuff your face with chocolate until you have to be sick in your granny’s downstairs loo. But if you’re going to go in for all the chocolate face stuffing thing, then there’s only one place we want to go, and that’s Maxwell’s in Covent Garden. The American style diner (they take face stuffing to a whole nother level in America) has created an easter feast that’s going to be so filling that you’ll want to […]
Grab a dabber, eyes down and watch out for two fat ladies, it’s BINGO TIME! Bingo halls are full of old ladies who smell of TCP and wee, right? No, not any more. Bingo has undergone a revolution lately, and suddenly it’s attractive to a whole new audience: millennials. And they only...
Skyscrapers are to London as ukuleles are to Mumford & Sons, however much you flipping hate them, they really are an essential ingredient. The last decade has seen the unprecedented rise and high-rise of the skyscraper, as London transforms from a low-rise city where the views are dictated by...
You know how it is when housemates move; back and forth all night long in your dad’s Volvo (not like that!), as flatpack furniture, boardgames and random items of taxidermy make their merry way from one slightly ragged flat to the next. Well, imagine that on a much bigger scale, as Little Yellow Door, the club that pretends it’s a house party, moves from one location to the next. Set over two floors, the new Little Yellow Door is going back to its roots. Taking inspiration from their first ever flatshare, expect lots and lots low-scale quirkiness, like mismatched furniture, […]
We’re so excited about this May opening – eek! For those who don’t know, BAO is the famed Taiwanese restaurant that took London by storm with its funky, animated steamed buns that have lit up our social feeds and taste delicious. It’s no surprise therefore that people are totally and utterly raving about the latest opening that has arrived in Borough joining the other outposts including BAO Soho and BAO Fitzrovia, XU Teahouse and Restaurant, as well as the original BAO BAR stand which remains at Netil Market. Oh, and did we mention it has a karaoke room named BAO […]
