Krug and Chips

Fish and chips is a classic English dish that is loved by pretty much everyone and is also weirdly versatile – seriously, this staple food can be enjoyed at almost every occasion. Fish and chips on the pier at the seaside, at family dinner, or at your friend’s wedding served in tiny metallic buckets and wrapped in faux newspaper (not cliché at all). Let’s be honest though, battered cod isn’t exactly the height of sophistication and class. However, Maison Krug and Tom Sellers are hoping to change this, through their new culinary collaboration, a temporary gourmet chip shop. Krug & […]

Sunrise Yoga at the Mondrian

We all know that life in the city can be pretty stressful. Dealing with potent underarms on the tube, tourists who are far too excited by Leicester Square and painfully slow walkers, it is enough to drive any London dweller crazy. So it’s important that we align our inner chakras by doing some Sunrise Yoga at the Mondrian. Taking place in the brilliantly named Rumpus Room, Sunrise Yoga allows you to start the week on a note of utter calm and mindfulness. Using a unique fusion of Ashtanga, Hatha and Vinyasa yoga to heat up the body, the classes are […]
