10 Ways to Get Battered on a Tuesday

We are of course talking about pancake batter, because tomorrow is Shrove Tuesday. Easter is rather early this year, which means we’ve only had a few days to gorge ourselves silly and drink all the drinks after being virtuous in January before we start being healthy again for Lent by giving up chocolate/alcohol/sugar. So you may as well have one last hurrah and eat all the pancakes – here are 10 of our favourite pancake offerings this year.

Darbaar Review – what we thought

With critically acclaimed Chef Abdul Yaseen at the helm I knew I would be in safe hands, as after spending over a decade spent at the iconic Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen, he has launched his first solo project in the form of Darbaar. I love the slick yet exotic feel to the venue as soon as I arrive which has a sharing dining experience layout, inspired by the banquets of the Indian Royal Court. The main dining area also boasts an open kitchen, providing a clear view of all the hustle and bustle of the food being created. The […]

8 Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day If You’re Single

Here at The Handbook HQ we’re all about balance, we’ll have our green juice in the morning and our burgers in the evening. We’ll attend Body Pump three times in a week and then not move from our sofa all weekend. And so, since we’ve told you about what to do if you’re loved up this Valentine’s Day, we’re now going to tell you about what to do if you’re single. And it’s not re-enacting the opening scenes of Bridget Jones, it’s not giving all couples death stares or eating yourself into a food coma with too much ice-cream. It’s […]

The InterContinental’s New Hotel

Pre-Millennium, Greenwich was barely given a second thought by Londoners. Enter the Millennium Dome (now the O2 Arena) and on any given weeknight you’ll find thousands of euphoric fans still singing as they pile onto the Jubilee line, long after the concert has ended. Wanting to avoid the crowded tube? The InterContinental O2 has just opened its doors, and it is just metres from the Arena. As suited to leisure as it is to corporate guests, the vast hotel boasts 453 rooms, 59 swanky suites, 20 meeting rooms, a 3,100sq ft ballroom and 5 in-house bars and restaurants, all spread over […]

The Periodic Table Of Cocktails

Making cocktails is a science. It involves a lot of experimentation, combination of elements and knowledge of your art. I can confirm that I was abysmal at all forms of science at school and now that I’m older I even struggle to make a decent glass of orange squash. However, if like us here at Handbook HQ you’re a scientific catastrophe, there is hope yet. Bourne & Hollingsworth’s latest ‘Last Libations’ event, The Periodic Table of Cocktails is a sure-fire way to ensure even the most amateur mixologists leave with the ability to throw together a magnificent mojito or stir […]

Maxwell’s Bar and Grill Launches Freakshakes

They came, we saw, we drooled – the latest food craze on everyone’s lips is Freakshakes and they are finally in our pudgy grasp. The calorific abominations are now a regular at Maxwell’s Bar and Grill, whose normal expertise lay in over-sized American portions but they had so many requests for Freakshakes that they expanded to this soon-to-be Australian national drink. The restaurant has monthly specials like Salted Caramel and Pretzels, Pecan Triple Chocolate Brownie, Banana Fudge and Strawberry Cheesecake, plus if you’re feeling creative just tweet suggestions directly to them and you never know; you might see it on […]

It’s February. The weather’s getting warmer, the drinks are flowing once again and love is in the air. For those in love it’s heading towards that time of the year… Valentine’s and for those suffering from a severe love deficit, it’s time to batten down the hatches, stock up on ice cream and delve into the ever-growing rom-com draw(ers) of the living room. However, if you’re one of those lucky enough to walk free and proud with your other half on your arm for Valentine’s day then aim yourself towards Corinthia Hotel, who’re putting on a whole range of romantic […]

Driverless cars are coming to London

When 2015 came along everyone turned up their noses at the measly offerings of scientists that hadn’t quite lived up to the Back to the Future predictions of hoverboards, self-tying shoes and flying cars. But whilst they haven’t quite managed to master those creations their real plan has recently come to light as it appears they have been focusing their energy on creating driverless cars – which will be coming to London in the summer! That’s right; no longer will we require a designated driver for nights out or even to pay attention to the road at all. You may […]

10 Ways to Live Like a Local in Tooting

Once the shabby neighbour of Wandsworth, Balham and Wimbledon, Tooting is now the poster child of the term ‘up-and-coming’, welcoming young professionals who battle their way onto the Northern Line each morning and head into zone 1. Despite rapid gentirification, Tooting maintains a vibrant community feel now so rare (read: sought-after) in London neighbourhoods. With specialist wine bars and artisanal coffee shops aplenty, it’s no surprise that it now hosts it’s very own annual food festival, ‘Tootopia’ to celebrate the diversity of food, drink and entertainment in the area. It was hard to whittle it down to just 10 but […]
