Awesome Afternoon Teas

DUKES MarTEAni Afternoon Tea

An opportunity has arisen for you to be as suave as James Bond, Frank Sinatra and… Homer Simpson. What does this trio have in common? Well, they’re all renowned martini sippers of course, and now you can get your fix too. Afternoon tea provides the perfect opportunity to indulge, but you sort of feel better about the whole indulgent affair because everything is mini. That’s what I tend to tell myself anyway. To celebrate World Martini Day, which falls on 19thJune, DUKES is introducing The MarTEAni (get it?) Afternoon Tea, in partnership with the East India Company. We all know […]

A Middle Eastern Must-Visit: Café Loren

What: Quite frankly, something completely different to your average breakfast or brunch indulgence. Ever craved some shakshuka in the morning? Well, I hadn’t either, but I think I might in future after this taste-test. The word is actually synonymous with breakfast in the Middle East and, after sampling, I can’t say I’m half surprised. The Setting: After Northern line troubles, a subsequent Uber and then a fumble through Stables Market in Camden on a bank-holiday, I was very happy when I finally discovered the ever-so-cosy Café Loren. Located at the main entrance of the market, the restaurant still feels nestled […]

Like Steak? And Sandwiches? Eat This…

If you hadn’t blocked out your entire diary, taken the month off work work and bought a new wardrobe then you’re clearly not across National Steakhouse Month. No, genuinely, who knew? Well thankfully the guys over at STK did and they’ve come up with sandwiches specially to celebrate. National Steakhouse Month, which according to Beef Magazine is a real thing (as is Beef Magazine, the beef cattle industry’s authoritative source for business management and production information, no less) and to mark it properly STK has only gone and created the Steak-Stacked Sandwich, with grilled USDA stirloin, whisky and cheddar cheese and shiitake sauce, melted […]

The Best Art, Theatre and Exhibitions to See This June

Winter months in the UK mean scuttling home from work exhausted, Vitamin D deprived and in need of the three t’s – tea, toast and television. But here we are in June, enjoying long sunny days  and a renewed sense of energy, making us want to leave the office bang on time and actually go and see or do something. This month we bring you another bumper collection of eclectic, and absorbing must-see art and culture. And if thoughts of hot, stuffy theatres and tourist packed art galleries had you thinking that June isn’t the month to go and see things in the […]

Now Airbnb Is Doing Concerts

Is London falling silent? Not so much the Big Issue Sellers, the taxi drivers shouting obscenities and drunken hen and stag dos singing but the music that has made the city a global powerhouse of music and culture for decades. The figures would suggest it is, and according to the Music Venue Trust, approximately 35% of music venues in the UK have closed their doors over the past decade while many others are at risk. Hence Sounds Like London. Launched last month by Sadiq Khan, Sounds Like London is a programme taking place across the capital and comprised of gigs and events […]

Things to do Outdoors

Mayfair’s Live in the Square Turns Theatre Inside Out

There’s something about sunnier climes that sees us take all things traditionally done indoors and do them outside instead, but who’s complaining right? Well, say goodbye to the awkward shuffle past many a frustrated observer as you attempt to go to the toilet mid-Madame Butterfly. Outdoors is the answer as a line-up of ballet, immersive theatre and music, twirls, jiggles and juggles its way into Mayfair’s Grosvenor Square for Live in the Square. The event will be Grosvenor Square’s outdoor festival debut, perfectly timed as we celebrate the 400thyear of the legacy that is Mr William Shakespeare, a man whose musings […]

Wine Down at Bordeaux Butterfly Bar

Famed for its wine growing region, Bordeaux is rich in rolling vineyards, an abundance of bars and, let’s face it, has over-all wine superiority (did I mention it’s also now labelled the Cité du Vin, to boot?). So, it’s hardly a surprise we’re wanting to have a slice, or glass if you will, of the action. Introducing the Bordeaux Butterfly Bar, the vino haven popping up in Finsbury Avenue Square, set to spread the wine wings of its guests with its selection of over 26 wines. Whilst we can’t promise the sunny climes of Bordeaux, the warmth on your back whilst […]
