It’s a mix of restaurant-style tables and high stools inside and then an al fresco courtyard complete with a canopy of fairy lights, and, more importantly for the time of year, heaters. Nibble on Hot & Kicking Sriracha Wings or the Meat Sharer with its sliders, wings, double-cooked chips and dips or get properly stuck in with the thirteen-strong selection of burgers including Fried Egg […]

The Perfect Pair: Cocktails and Dessert

All good things come in two’s: Ben and Jerry’s, Ant and Dec and now cocktails and dessert. Why, no-one has thought of pairing these two things before, we do not know but thanks to Basement Sate in Soho, we will definitely see them together more often. Bought to you by Cathleen McGarry, Basement Sate is the first cocktail and dessert bar in London, providing us Londoners with a place to enjoy exquisite desserts, cocktails and of course late night dancing. In celebration of this new found marriage, every Tuesday, the bar will hold Cocktail and Dessert Pairing classes. Boyfriends, take […]

BRGR.CO Chelsea

Forget those ‘golden arches’, SW3 has just acquired an altogether superior burger joint with the opening of BRGR.CO on King’s Road this week where a dedicated team of Brgrologists, Lettuce Analysts and Grill Sergeants are already hard at work. Hand-made each morning using the best cuts of 28-day-aged beef from the very posh Duke of Buccleuch Estate in South West Scotland, burger snobs can bite into three classic choices: 4oz, 6oz and 8oz – served deconstructed allowing them to build the burgers as they so desire with side orders featuring Parmesan truffle fries (just don’t call them chips), made with […]

Fast forward to now and it’s reopening as World’s End Market. It’s the second opening from Anatoly Parkhomchuk and Ruslan Ugarov, following the success of The Crystal Palace last summer.  With a […]

Beijing Comes to Harrods

Harrods is bringing Beijing to Knightsbridge in the shape of Chai Wu, a new, modern Chinese restaurant opening on the fifth floor of our favourite luxury department store.

Happy Birthday to the Marquee Club

What do The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie all have in common? For those who are not rock geniuses, the answer is The Marquee Club, which throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s witnessed the birth and rise of these now major artists. And having given birth to such iconic British figures, it is only apt that on 1st December we celebrate their 50 years of existence, with an anniversary party at Floridita London. Whilst we doubt there will be any guitar smashing going on, the evening does promise exclusive performances from bands such as Ten Years […]
