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 […]

Is This The Best Place to Eat in Pop Brixton?

What? Making its home among the shipping containers of Pop Brixton, Duck Duck Goose is a modern Cantonese canteen by Oli Brown (former chef of Le Café Anglais) based on the old school cafes and roast meat shops in Hong Kong and is now quite possibly, my favourite place to eat in the foodie hub. New? No, it opened at the start of 2017, but they have recently launched a new spring menu. The Setting: Pop Brixton is one of my favourite places to go when the sun is shining and you’re looking for a midweek alfresco supper or you’ve […]

Is This London’s Most Opulent Restaurant? We Check Out Park Chinois

What: Park Chinois is Mayfair’s decadent party den opened by Alan Yau (founder of the likes of Wagamama, Hakkasan, Yauatcha, Duck and Rice). Made up of the Salon de Chine and Club Chinois, Park Chinois is the sort of venue where you leave your 9-5 at the door and enter into a realm of Champagne, dancing and hedonism. New? No, it’s been partying since 2015, however they have just launched a cheeky, new dinner show which brings together cabaret, comedy and singing. We particularly enjoyed a moody performance of Back to Black, a Carry On esque sketch based on Buckingham […]

Moonshine Saloon: The Wild West Themed Immersive Bar You Need to Visit

What: If you’re into your immersive experiences then chances are you’ve heard of Alcotraz, the Shoreditch bar that will see you donning an orange jumpsuit and trying to smuggle spirits past the prison guard. Well now Inventive Productions is back and this time they are transporting guests to the Wild West, to a time of moonshining, where sheriffs like to think they rule the roost but it’s those with the illegal liquor that has everyone under their thumb. New: Yes, the Moonshine Saloon has just opened. The Setting: Moonshine Saloon couldn’t be in a more different location to Alcotraz. Whilst […]

The Boxsets That Got Us Through May

Given we’re all going to spend June glued to Love Island it’s hard to think how you’ll find time to watch any boxsets, let alone the six we’ve suggested here. But when the Majorcan dust clears, then you’ll need something to replace all that time with, you could learn a language or do a nightclass, but most likely you’ll be looking for the perfect boxset, so here’s everything we’ve been watching the last month… Amidst a bunch of colleagues watching murder, rape and suicide boxsets, Deputy Editor Phil‘s been trying to keep it light and cheerful with a couple of comedies.

The HIIT Class Taking Place 135m Off the Ground

Everyone knows that anything is made better when you have a great view, brunch, great, brunch on a rooftop = the best, taxes, not fun, doing your taxes on the beach, bearable. It’s the same for exercising, pounding the treadmill in a sweaty gym staring at a blank wall, dull, but doing a HIIT class in a London Eye pod, now we’re talking. Back for the third year, Barry’s Bootcamp will be hosting their HIIT classes with an exclusive takeover of the Coca-Cola London Eye on Saturday 9th June. The first pod will leave at 7:30am for a high intensity […]

Say Cheese: Jarlsberg Introduces its Gin and Cheese Evening

Here’s something sure to put a cheesy grin on your face – an evening of gin and cheese. I could probably just leave that sentence there, whack a date, time and place on the end and you’d be sold, as two of the nation’s yummiest indulgencies are sure to entice. However, I must go on, and probably make your tummies rumble even more. Jarlsberg are introducing their gin and cheese evening to celebrate the cheesiest day of the year. Yep, its National Cheese Day. It seems there’s a “national __ day” for just about everything nowadays, but we’re certainly not […]

Swingers Celebrate Second Birthday with Free Crazy Golf

Crazy golf – the sport that sees you holding up a queue of people as you attempt put number twelve, making up rules that definitely aren’t applicable, and being faced with absolutely impossible holes over water features. Yet, there’s something about the crazy, loveable little sport that drags us back for more each time. This said, Swingers City has got a hole in one with their idea to offer free crazy golf all day long to celebrate their second birthday on 4th June. As if crazy golf wasn’t hard enough, Swingers birthday event also includes half price champers and discounted […]

The Low Key Plant-Based Place You Need to Try: Plates

What: Plates is an innovative plant-based restaurant, influenced by art and inspired by nature, from Executive Chef and Plates co-founder, Kirk Haworth, and his sister, Creative Director, Keeley. New? Plates was previously a weekend pop up in Dalston before it moved to its new permanent home in Hoxton on the 12th May 2018, it’s only open to the public Saturday evenings. The Setting: Plates was a tad hard to find, luckily front of house was standing by the front door and saw us wandering around lost and ushered us in.
