The Terrace At Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel Review

What: The Terrace at Jumeirah Lowndes HotelWhere: BelgraviaWhy you should go there: For a relaxing afternoonFavourite thing we ate: The sirloin steak We all like BBQ’s but the worst thing is that is that you actually have to cook it yourself. There’s always the possibility of letting someone else do it but that never works out either. Mainly because our grilled chicken wings don’t look like the promise of Instagram and if you hand it over to the males they don’t look like the promise of Zac Efron and his juicy steak in Neighbours. Reality hurts. That’s why it’s better to leave it […]

Circus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar What: An aromatic dining experience…sorry, I meant acrobatic.Why: Your mum probably warned you about the circus, but you’re already two glasses of champers down and […]

3rd Dead Dolls House Opens

The Dead Dolls House – it’s not really a name you’re going to forget is it?  Nor is its concept of drawing all over the walls in permanent marker. Well following on from the Islington and Bethnal Green branches, The Dead Dolls Club is jumping over the river and heading to Peckham with the launch of their third venue on the 18th June.  You might have noticed that Peckham is having a bit of a renaissance at the moment with new bars, clubs and restaurants opening and the Dead Dolls duo – Adam Towner and Katy Rosewarne noticed that many […]

Killing Kittens Parties For The Sexual Elite

I don’t know about you but whenever we use to hear of the term Killing Kittens we thought of fluffy little animals suffering a dire death. But that is definitely not what this is….how naïve of us. Killings Kittens has been running in London for about 10 years now and is branded as private sex parties for the world’s sexual elite. The club was founded by Kate Middleton’s school pal – Emma Sayle. Sounds intimidating?
