Where To Eat Out In… Mayfair

The swanky suburb that is Mayfair is absolutely brimming with decadent and moreish eateries, making our job a tricky one when it came to handpicking some of the best. Alas, we’ve put our taste buds to the test and listed down the following… bon appétit!   Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill This British delight sees guests dining amongst red leather seats, marble topped bars and oysters, oysters, oysters! Oysters, as one of, if not the, aphrodisiac of the moment are rich in attendance at this marvellous eatery and sit as the main food to be enjoyed once inside. However, equally as […]

It Pays to be Kind: Give a Compliment and Get a Free G&T

Be At One is bringing a compliment booth to Covent Garden to spread happiness and give out free drinks all to mark the arrival of their four new venues in central London and the launch of their new ‘Blue Ticked’ G&T. If there was one thing that I would suggest everyone should do right now (apart from planting more trees and ditching single use plastic) it would be to up the kindness in the world with more compliments. It’s unlikely that you’re going to be able to solve climate change on your way to work and you probably aren’t going […]

Prepare To Go Wild, Honey

We’re wild about this new restaurant opening, as just when we thought we’d seen the poignant end of an era with the closure of Wild Honey in Mayfair – after a whopping 12 years – Chef Anthony Demetre has announced Wild Honey will be opening in a brand new location; the former site of The Balcon restaurant at a new site at Sofitel London St James.   Wild Honey will see an evolution of the food and style of its predecessor, with Head Chef Simon Woodrow collaborating with Anthony. The menu will continue its French-based contemporary, seasonal cooking methods with a […]

Have Dinner With The Actual Wolf Of Wall Street

We’re guessing that dwarf tossing, topless models and rampant drug abuse are not on the menu at M Restaurants next week, but what is is an intimate dinner with the actual Wolf of Wall Street. We’ve all seen the movie, where Leonardo di Caprio’s character, Jordan Belfort scams his way into Wall Street and proceeded to earn over $50m a year through fraudulent financial dealings. The shenanigans at his firm led to a Hollywood blockbuster, and the man behind the real story is sure to be equally compelling. Jordan Belfort built his company, Stratton Oakfield, around the simple ‘pump and dump’ […]

Everything You Need To Know About The Ted Bundy Movie

It’s the movie we’ve all been waiting for after morbidly binging on the The Ted Bundy tapes on Netflix released earlier this year. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has been dominating the news cycle as of late, and we’re pretty terrified about Zac Efron’s uncanny similarities to the serial killer in the film. If you live in London and have an Instagram then you’ll probably have seen Efron’s been zipping about the city, with his peroxide blond locks rocking up on red carpets, in the back of taxis and even at the Tottenham v Brighton match. Yep, random, we know. […]

Fatt Pundit: The Soho Restaurant Taking Over Insta Feeds

Soho’s Berwick Street is a treasure trove of creative and eclectic eateries, positioned just a wander away from the main drag of Oxford Circus, paved with a sea of shopping bag swingers making their way to their first G&T of the day. I, on the other, was fending through the masses to grab a seat at Fatt Pundit, a restaurant that has overwhelmed my social channels with its success since its March opening. The restaurant, which intertwines the flavours of India and China in its dishes (named Hakka), is positioned amongst others, fairly inconspicuously, and entry sees you whirled straight […]

Sun’s Out, (Burger) Buns Out: 8 Places To Picnic In London

Living in the UK comes with the expectation of very limited sunny climes, so it’s hardly surprising we flock to beaches or the nearest green space to make the most of the sporadic British sunshine when it comes our way. But, in the concrete jungle that is London, it can be hard trying to find a safe haven away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, shrieking toddlers and frisbee throwers. Alas, we’ve put our thinking caps on and come up with some of London’s best picnic spots, and boy are they a bunch of beauties… Patch and Picnic […]

We’re Getting Wisteria Hysteria For This Floral Courtyard Pop-Up

Bringing the countryside to your London doorstep can be tricky. Let’s face it, I’m sure we aren’t the only ones cooped up in shoebox-sized ‘studio’ apartments where the only sight of greenery is weeds forlornly growing by the side of a curb. Luckily, Nyetimber has done the hard work for us all, bringing the luxurious surroundings of the Nyetimber Estate, in the depths of the English countryside, to Rosewood London in Holborn.  Nestled away in the idyllic Rosewood London’s Edwardian courtyard, floral archways carve the pathways into this new magical secret garden. Opening this May,  guests will enter through an […]

The Rooftop Bar That Comes With ‘Mexican Lady Wrestlers’

The Queen of Hoxton has chosen a theme for their summer rooftop, and it’s Mexican lady wrestlers. Too niche? Not at all, lucha libra, the incredibly colourful Mexican version of wrestling, is seriously hot right now, and with a summer promising to be equally warm it’s a smart choice. The Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop will become the den of the Luchadores (or lady wrestlers) and the whole space will be taking its inspiration from the frenetic fiestas and vividly coloured back-streets of Mexico’s San Christabel. We’re always a sucker for a rooftop, especially one with a theme. Add in ‘the baddest bitches in Mexican […]
