South Kensington Club to Open

South Kensington will be welcoming the arrival of a new private members’ club this autumn, but forget any preconceptions of members’ club because this is so much more than that. They want to nurture your body and soothe your soul and which Londoner can’t say they need that to get them through the dark winter months? Exactly, no one. Aptly named the South Kensington Club, it’s going to make sure you’re eating right by giving nutritional advice, their restaurant is inspired by the healthy lot over in the Mediterranean and their café is going to sell fresh juice so you […]

Buddha Bar Review

As soon as we walk into Buddha Bar we are struck by the colourful lighting and chic interior of this Knightsbridge restaurant. Located just off the high street, this 450 capacity venue is filled with impressive décor like floor to ceiling crystallized dragons, and London’s interpretation of the signature Buddha levitating over diners in the ground floor. Once we are seated at our table we order cocktails, a definite recommendation is the BB Bellini; a Japanese inspired twist on the classic with a blend of peach and sparkling sake. It would have been easy enough to sit there all night […]

Brasserie Gustave: Review

When it comes to dining we have to look across the channel to France who is at the top of the restaurant game, the first in the class if you will. So with the Parisian inspired, Brasserie Gustave, having recently opened on Sydney Street, The Handbook couldn’t possibly say no to paying them a visit. Brought to you by former sommelier Richard Weiss and chef Laurence Glayzer the restaurant is designed to look like a traditional Parisian brasserie – things were kept simple with burgundy leather banquettes, mahogany tables and yellow walls adorned with original Art Nouveau and Art Deco-style […]
