Brunch at The Pantechnicon

Having recently launched their new brunch menu, a visit to The Pantechnicon was must.  Once we had battled against tube delays, underground closures and a ten minute queue just to get out of the station, we found our way to quaint little Motcomb street just off bustling Sloane Street. With the tables outside nicely filling up, we actually escaped the heat and sat inside the light airy bar downstairs, which at midday was quiet with only a couple of tables, by one however it was almost full. With cool, neutral, calm colours the bar was friendly whilst also being sophsticated […]

Dirty Martini Summer Nights

Tucked away in a corner of Hanover Square you will find one of London’s two Dirty Martini bars, and last week we made a trip down to Oxford Circus, to spend an evening trying out their new ‘Summer Nights’ Thurdsays! We made ourselves comfortable on the chic leather seats, surrounded by cocktails, and the attractive murmur of chitter-chatter, soaking up a wonderfully relaxed yet up-beat ‘tonight-is-going-to-be-a-good-night’ atmosphere. The evening consisted of, funnily enough, a vibrant summer themed menu of cocktails, and a BBQ platter the perfect size to share with a friend. It was filled with bite sized burgers and […]

Jamaica Jamaica at The Jam Tree

Last week The Handbook went over to the Jam Tree in Clapham Old Town, to get into the Carribean spirit, at their Jamaica Jamaica pop up. The pub was getting into the mood with Jamaican flags and waiters dressed in bright yellow t-shirts, but where was the reggae sound track? Perhaps Bob Marley was having a night off.  After being seated, we ordered a couple of cocktails, the Usain Bolt, a mix of rum, Jamaican Sorrel and champagne and the wonderfully named Shabba Ranks: rum, Koko Kanu, ginger and marmalade. We weren’t in any rush, wanting to spend a lazy […]
