The Vegan Restaurant That’s Selling Us Cannabis

I was gonna write this article, but then I got high. You know the rest. Yes, by CHLOE has a new cannabis-infused menu, and it’s giving us the munchies. The vegan restaurant may be no stranger to the power of plants, being an all-vegan import straight from New York. But this is something a little different. While competitors are busy slotting together another salad or grilling yet another aubergine, by CHLOE was cooking up something entirely alternative. The menu draws on CBD, the chill-out ingredient in actual cannabis, and their Feelz by CHLOE menu gives a whole span of baked […]

Enrique, Ronaldo and Nadal Walk Into A Bar…

Off the back of Usain Bolt-ing to open up a restaurant, David Beckham and Guy Ritchie buying a pub and Idris Elba squashing 007 rumours by instead opening a bar, it’s safe to say it has been quite the celebs-turn-hospitality led few months. So, why not throw Enrique Iglesias, Cristiano Ronaldo and Rafael Nadal into the mix, eh?! Yes, we scoffed at the random prospect but the news is true. The threesome, whose looks don’t stray far from triplet-dom, are financially backing Zela restaurant in Covent Garden; a restaurant we’re sure people are going to flock to for more than […]

Five Reasons You Need to Book This Michelin-Starred Brunch

Award-winning Michelin-starred restaurant Galvin at Windows has recently launched a brunch menu and of course being the brunch fans that we are, we needed no excuse to head to the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane to take on the menu. It’s Their First The Saturday brunch menu launched this September, some twelve years after the restaurant first opened and it may come as a surprise, as brunch is a staple of Londoners’ weekends, but this is Galvin at Windows’ first brunch.

The Basque region of Spain (or not of Spain, depending on your politics) is awash with amazing tastes and flavours. Here is the best of Basque… Donostia Taking its name from the city San Sebastian in North West Spain, Donostia is a real Basque affair. The Basque pintxos & tapas in Marylebone serves its eclectic range of dishes under the supervision of some seriously top-notch chefs using a range of […]

Royal Wedding Special: Remind Me Who Actually IS Princess Eugenie?

Unlike when Kate and Wills, or Megan and Harry tied the knot, Princess Eugenie’s wedding day has been somewhat less of a royal hoo-ha; which is a breath of fresh heir if you ask us! However if you do like a good old royal wedding, you’ll be eager to learn that this Friday (12th) marks the big day as the Queen’s granddaughter weds Jack Brooksbank. So to royally flush you out, we thought we’d tell you some facts about Princess Eugenie, probably needed seeing as a Google of her name continuously conjures up images of her and her sister Beatrice, but […]

Oktoberfest In London: The Best And The Wurst

Surprisingly for a country that seems to be constantly panicking about cultural intrusions from abroad, we’re all over Oktoberfest. The German import sees us dress up in bizarre Bavarian dress (wipe-clean leather overalls for men and booby serving wench dresses for women) and drink copious amounts of beer, so the attraction is clear. Here’s where to get your Oktoberfest fix in London. Electric Ballroom Camden’s Electric Ballroom will be offering beer, sausages and teutonic tunes for two nights only for 3,000 revellers. The iconic venue will be fully-decked out as an Oktoberfest beerhall with long wooden tables, bunting and steins […]
