Do you have dreams where you wake up thinking ‘what on earth just happened?’ Dreams where the world you experience is so fantastical and so bizarre that you’re left thinking about it for the rest of the day? Well get ready because this weekend you’re going to experience that but this time you’ll be wide awake… Following on from previous parties like their Trumpocalypse and Malice in Wonderland, Malice the immersive experience connoisseur, is hosting its 7th experiential event: The Lion, The Glitch & The Wardrobe. The pop-up theatrical dance night will see Narnia meet the Matrix in a culture-twisting […]
We admit it – drinking in the daytime has a bad reputation. But if brunch has taught us anything, it’s that a drink is actually pretty welcome around lunchtime. In the summer, day drinking means lounging in a sunny beer garden with an ice-cold pitcher, while in the winter it’s an...
When it comes to dogs, Londoners get a little bit obsessed, we’ve seen dog diners, dog discos and even dog cinemas. Well now there is the next thing, a way for you and your dog to get some exercise in these cold winter months and it doesn’t involve shivering in a park. Rover.com is creating the world’s first trampoline park for dogs. Yes, you did just read that correctly. You can go trampolining with your dog. Madness some may say, but apparently dogs like bouncing around just as much as we do. You can sign you and your dog up […]
Mayfair is pretty magical around Christmas time, bright lights adorn the tops of buildings, a crispness lingers in the air and lining hidden-away streets lie post-work drinkers sipping on steaming mugs of mulled wine and munching on mince pies. My reason for visiting was to try out Onima, the latest addition to Mayfair’s sensational food scene. Bringing the spirit of Mykonos to London, the restaurant-cum-bar-cum-private members’ club, which lies snug inside what was once Cartier’s headquarters, allures you straight from the website to the lobby. Heavily based on sensory exploration, the venue and brainchild of founder Alexandros Andrianopoulos seeks to […]
Sweets are a staple favourite of everyone’s ‘treat’ diet, as they remind us of our childhood, a much simpler time when ugly words like ‘taxes’ and ‘wrinkles’ didn’t exist. So it’s no surprise that sweets excite adults, just as much as they do...
Over here at The Handbook we just love a refurb, of any size, shape and form! Which is why we’ve got ourselves in a real tizzy over the refurb of the year, as Soho’s iconic Roundhouse undergoes a one million pound refurb. The sexy new space, set to open at the end of the month, will reopen as Soho Residence in London’s West End. So, what’ve we got to look forward to (aside from moreish food and tasty drinks?) Well, the bar club and lounge (triple threat) will hold a whopping capacity of 350 meaning you can along and take all […]
Chew, chew! Did someone say all aboard the fun train? How about choo-chooing your way through a four-course meal by BBC MasterChef finalist Louisa Ellis? Yep, we thought that’d get you on the right tracks to reading more… By way of introduction, and for those who don’t know but totally should, Funicular are a collective of award-winning theatre professionals whose last show-stopping projects you may be familiar with. That’s right, Funicular saw attendees ready to board the elegant dining car on The Murdér Express as well as descending into the dangerous depths of the underworld with a sultry gatekeeper as they Journeyed To The […]
Oompsa-oompa, loopma! You may have clicked on the chocolate week article (our mistake), but now you’re in the right place! “Oompa Loompa doompadee doo, I’ve got another puzzle for you, Oompa Loompa doompadee-pon, if you are wise you’ll head to the Sanderson!”. Willy Wonka is issuing gold tickets this festive season, not for his chocolate factory but a side project he’s had on for a while in the form of The Sanderson’s Christmas theme. Welcome to a takeover that deserves to be as massive as Augustus Gloop, the bizarre, imaginative and downright crazy world of Willy Wonka. The Long Bar will be […]
This might be the season for indulgence, but that doesn’t mean that we have to forget about the gym as tempting as it might be. As the nights draw in, the mornings get colder and we start breakfasting on mince pies, now is just the time we should be getting more exercise in to combat both the...
What: Inspired by World Vegan Month (November), the Rum Kitchen bigwigs got together with the ‘Queen of Contemporary Caribbean Cooking’ Shivi Ramoutar to create some plant-based dishes worthy of being on their menu. First Impression: Having forgotten that Thursdays and are the new Fridays I was surprised at how packed Rum Kitchen was when we got there; a slight hold up with the train thanks to ol’ TFL meant I nearly forfeited my coveted table and lost out, but luckily we were squeezed in. The restaurant was buzzing all evening and I couldn’t help but notice that it was very […]
