From fancy dress to film night, everyone loves a theme – and London’s bars and restaurants are no exception.

The May Fair Bar Review: What We Thought

The May Fair Bar at the May Fair Hotel is the sort of bar that you picture when you’re younger, living in the middle of nowhere and you’re dreaming about going to London. How you’ll be running around London in a perfectly thought out outfit, flitting between black cabs, which of course don’t get stuck in traffic, a coffee permanently in your hand and cocktails every night in some effortlessly cool bar which you’ve visited so often they know you at the door. Well perhaps that was just my 15 year old vision and we all know the reality, shout […]

Voyages Extraordinaire Christmas Party Venue

Words have the power to conjure up amazingly colourful images, emotions, senses and scenes but sometimes the power of words is insufficient and things have to be seen for yourself. Voyages Extraordinaire sounds like one such example but for journalistic purposes, and to convince you to make that visit, here we go…  In a secret townhouse a stones throw from The Strand, lives an underground world unbeknown to the pinstriped-wearing businessmen and selfie-sticked tourists on the streets above. An immersive experience, Voyages Extraordinaire is here to vamp up your Christmas parties with room upon room of performers, props and exploration. […]

The Hour Glass Review – What We Thought

With neighbours including Chanel, Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren it’s no surprise that when The Hour Glass started to show signs of ageing it underwent a facelift. On our visit, two weeks after opening, there was still the smell of fresh paint.  With every innovative new restaurant opening in the capital, something has got to be said for loyal owners who retain the name and core concept of a formerly loved venue and bring it back to life. New owners Luke Mackay and David Turcan know what they’re doing; Luke has already tried his hand at pub makeovers, having done […]

W London ‘Goes Dutch’

They gave us Edam cheese, tulips and clogs – for which we are forever grateful and therefore we can’t think of a country more deserving of a themed takeover than the Netherlands. From 9th to 23rd October, the public areas of W London in Leicester Square, will be restyled into an ‘Ode to Amsterdam’ where guests will be able to try out a Dutch menu, Dutch-inspired cocktails, film screenings plus get the opportunity to win a Dutch bike. All this is for a reason though as it celebrates the opening of W Amsterdam, as part of an empire expansion from […]
