What To Do This Weekend: 18th – 20th May

The sun’s out again (there was a moment when it looked like winter was coming back) and so we are too! Here’s some ideas of what you can be getting up to this weekend. Oh, in case you’re looking for royal wedding stuff, here is a list of wedding related fun and here’s where you can watch the fun from.

Summer in Full Bloom at the Hoxton Flower Festival

As winter steps aside to allow us a much-needed dose of Vitamin D, the power of the flower presents itself. Introducing the Hoxton Flower Festival. Springing up on the 22nd of May, the first day of the Chelsea Flower Show, the day will allow the green-fingered amongst you to pick up the pruners and shears and explore a wonderland of workshops. If planting bulbs in science class is the furthest your “green-fingeredness” has ever stretched, now is your chance to, quite literally, dig in. The days’ highlights will include five sessions, inclusive of conical flask terrarium sessions with London Terrariums, […]

The Sound of September: The Return of ONBlackHeath Festival

One for those not quite ready to take off the welly boots and bring the lighters out of the air… ONBlackheath is London’s end-of-summer September party, and what better excuse to squeeze in an extra shindig than Squeeze, the British rock band themselves, headlining on the Saturday. For those whose Glastobury 2016 consisted of gawping at the TV set, ONBlackheath now provides the opportunity to watch the iconic Squeeze up-close and personal. The two-day music and food bash will feature a line-up as eye-catching and eclectic as Squeeze’s album covers, with platinum-selling artist Paloma Faith taking centre-stage on the Sunday. […]

We Review: Flemings Mayfair

What? One of the last remaining privately owned hotels in London and the hotel thought to be the inspiration for Agatha Christie’s novel At Betram’s Hotel, Flemings Mayfair is also home to restaurant, Ormer Mayfair by Shaun Rankin and the Manetta’s bar. New? Nope, Flemings is actually one of London’s oldest established hotels having opened in 1851 with parts of the building (it’s made up of thirteen Georgian townhouses) dating back to 1731, so no, it isn’t new. That said it has had a recent multi-million-pound refurbishment, which not only gave the hotel a new lease of life, but also […]

Seafood Restaurant ‘Bucket’ Anchors up in Westbourne Grove

As the all too familiar saying goes “there are plenty more fish in the sea”, a motto new seafood restaurant, Bucket, seem oh so familiar with. Washing up in Westbourne Grove this May, the seafood haven promises dishes by the bucket load, coupled with an inside attitude as laid-back and breezy as Otis Redding must have felt, Sittin’ On the Dock of the Bay. With sustainability at the helm, husband and wife team Georgie Godik Hayward and Adam Hayward prove the sea is for sharing with this new venture, mixing the classics with seasonal specials. So, what can we expect […]

Catch This Three Michelin Star Chef As He Visits London

It’s not often that you get to taste the creations of a three Michelin star chef, and even if you’re lucky enough to be a regular in the three London restaurants to have achieved this accolade then surely the chance to sup at the table of Thomas Bühner from Germany’s ‘La Vie’ is a chance to jump at? Thankfully you won’t have to traipse to Osnabrück, but just to Greenwich and the InterContinental London – The O2 where he has teamed up with the very talented Tomas Lidakevicius, Head Chef at Peninsula Restaurant for a collaboration spanning three days only. The menu sounds suitably incredible, […]

The London Restaurant Partying Like it’s 1993

Back in 1993 Haymarket was bought to a standstill as 10,000 fans packed the streets to see over 100 film stars partying in London, but it wasn’t for a premier or awards ceremony. It was for the opening of Planet Hollywood and it’s famed for being one of the biggest celebrity launches ever seen, with the likes of Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Demi Moore and Arnold Schwarzenegger partying the night away. Since then they have been serving up a little bit of Hollywood for 25 years and to celebrate reaching such a milestone they will be offering highlights from their […]

World’s Best Cocktail Bar Launches Terrace

Where do you go from World’s Best Cocktail Bar? For Dandelyan the answer is to launch a Botanical Suite within Mondrian London, and to do it with the world’s most famous gin maker, Bombay Sapphire. The idea is simple, take over a hotel suite, totally redesign it and turn it into a tasting room for the month of June. Which is exactly what they’ve done. The suite will include a large botanical terrace with live plant walls and trees, a tasting table with live foliage built in (garnish literally growing on the table!), and a private entrance to an outdoor patio, which […]
