Gunpowder Plot Their Second Restaurant at One Tower Bridge

You know what they say, the smaller the better… or at least that’s what I tell myself as I stand on my tip toes to reach something from the top shelf. Yet, Gunpowder seem to be on side with my views, as their first restaurant was equipped with an intimate 20 covers. Now, a little sibling is en route in the form of Gunpowder numero duo, residing at One Tower Bridge. Situated in Shoreditch their first restaurant was a huge success, and whilst we’re sure this is because the Indian home-style cooking was a success, it’s equally an ideal pit-stop […]

Spice Up Your Sundays at Brigadiers Indian Restaurant

Kudos to Brigadiers – they only opened last month and already the words free-flowing are being thrown about like they’re going out of fashion, and we’re totally loving it. Free-Flowing Sundays will be gracing Brigadiers restaurant offering free-flowing drinks and live sport to accompany their Indian Roast menus. It appears Brigadiers are graciously acknowledging the fact that just because it’s Sunday, doesn’t mean drinks aren’t on the Indian food embellished table. Whilst the World Cup might be a distant memory and the chimes of “it’s coming home” have drifted off like tumble weed, there are a whole host of other sporting […]

Throwing Tomatoes As Aqua Nueva Celebrates La Tomatina

There is something so wonderfully enjoyable about a food fight, admittedly a waste but also an act of school lunch time rebellion ‘look Cook this is what we think of your cardboard pasta’ that said with the rise of primary school children owning smart phones and Jamie Oliver banning turkey twizzlers (something I still yearn for) they are no doubt Instagramming their lunches. Of course, for a proper food fight you want to head to the Valencian town of Buñol for its renowned festival, La Tomatina, where the town turns into a bloodbath of tomatoes flying through the air. That […]

“Ommm” Your Way to Equilibrium: Inhere’s Meditation Pods

We’re about to lose our minds up Inhere, up Inhere…No, the space bar on my computer hasn’t stopped working, but rather Inhere, London’s first drop-in meditation studio, has arrived to provide private guided meditation classes and workshops. When we think of meditation more often than not images of mountain ranges, sunsets and the full lotus might cloud the mind. However, you don’t actually have to use up the air miles to find a foreign sunset, as Inhere have created a custom-designed meditation pod launching this month, available for homes, offices, hotels, spas and other areas. We all know offices can […]

Wine not? The wine brand that wants it to be more than just drinks

All good things come in threes, which must be why there’s going to be three nights of wining and dining, courtesy of Campo Viejo’s, Casa Campo Viejo. If you think we’ve just spouted a tonne of Spanish words, it’s probably because we have. Within reason though, might I add. In essence, Campo Viejo have launched an event that will allow Londoners one-and-all the opportunity to enjoy an evening, or two, filled to the brims with Rioja. I personally, decant even cope with how great this sounds… see what I did there? If not, you need a night at Campo Viejo’s […]

The August Pop-Ups You Need to Try

London: The city where you can be busy not being busy. Cryptic? Perhaps. However, when you take a look at the amount constantly happening, it’s a surprise we ever get time to have a Netflix night with, as Bridget Jones so aptly labels them, our boyfriends Ben and Jerry. Suffice to say, the one in the office given the mean feat of handpicking pop-ups always does so with a slight grimace. By no means because it’s a bad task, but because wow – there’s so much going on! Yet, without further ado, we’ve fine tuned our bank of pending pop-ups […]
