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 […]

Our Guide to… Christmas Afternoon Tea

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and whilst we are all very excited about the most wonderful time of the year, it can sometimes be a little bit of a nightmare.

Bayou’s Blues Brunch

This weekend saw creole bar and restaurant, Bayou, launch its new Blues Brunch; it’s live music and a whole lot of soul food, which was just what we needed when the heavens decided to open and the whole of London was absolutely drenched. Just off Camden High Street, Bayou sits on Iverness Street, hidden behind the market stalls. It’s a strange little place, it’s quite basic, plain wooden tables and chairs and a bar running down one side, but nothing that stood out – apart from the loo walls which were painted with leaves and branches, there were also swamp […]

Zaika reopens after complete refurbishment

Sitting proudly at the top of Kensington high street you might recognise Zaika; from the outside at least as inside there has been a complete refurbishment which extends to the entire staff and management. The former bank makes for a stunning and striking venue with its high ceilings and marble features, the long bar betrays its first purpose with cash register shaped features running along the back of the bar which separates it from the main dining area. It is definitely worth taking a moment to pull up pew at the bar to enjoy their impressive selection of cocktails and […]

Set in the cosy courtyard of the restaurant and inspired by the age of hunting grounds of the surrounding Regent’s Park, you will be in for a rural retreat with the added bonus of not having to leave the confines of London. Combine this with outdoor heaters, scented candles and live music and this whole hunting thing suddenly became a whole load more enticing. Tweed, tartan and taxidermy will […]

Boutique hotels are branching out! Into South East London to be precise. Welcome to Tulse Hill Hotel officially open this week in a former 19 century public house.

We see this place coming into its own on the weekend for those South West Londoners who can’t face schlepping all the way into town when they don’t actually have to go to work but still fancy themselves a bit too hip for the local Wetherspoons. Yup, they’ll like the Art […]
