The Trendiest Place to Eat Pizza: Canova Hall

What: Not your typical Italian restaurant, Canova Hall is straying from traditional options and giving Italian food a 21st century make-over. First Impression: There were a lot of attractive people at Canova Hall and not like Chelsea kind of attractive where everyone has an element of part time model about them but a lot of normal attractive people milling about, including staff I may add. On The Menu: The casual, Italian menu has everything you would expect from an Italian like pizza and pasta and a tonne of a cheese plus, seeing as Canova Hall is in trendy Brixton, a load […]

Get Drunk Like A Vegan

One thing that strikes fear into the heart of any vegan: ordering food in a non-vegan restaurant. The mix of having to scrutinise the menu and interrogating the waiter on the exact ingredients used can be a stressful affair, but at least the drinks menu is a safe space, right? Wrong. Cocktail menus have all sorts of sneaky animal-derided products in them like egg whites, honey and cream-based liqueurs – enter Dead Dolls House. All of the cocktails at Dead Dolls House are totally vegan-friendly, that’s right, vegans can booze it up guilt free. This means you can drink away […]

Therefore, like we commemorate any birthday of a legend, a great or anything iconic, we are celebrating the 70th birthday of the Margarita with what else but Cointreau? The orange liqueur has joined summery toned forces with South Place Hotel, to bring a […]
