The New Gin Themed Afternoon Tea to Land in Soho

Gin, it’s our favourite spirit (that’s a plural Londoners our, we don’t take sides here), it’s the epitome of the British summer drink, yep even Pimms is gin-based, a fact we should all know if we want to consider ourselves true Brits, so what could be both more summery and British than a gin themed afternoon tea? Perhaps the Royal Family eating it at a cricket match, but let’s not be pedantic here. Recently launched at The Soho Hotel, the Gin Mare G & Tea, the tea brings together the classic English afternoon tea with the Mediterranean flavours found in […]

London’s Coolest Terrace Gets A Makeover

The igloos have melted! We all went wild over the plastic pods lining The Thames back in winter, and the Eskimos In Chief had to be Coppa Club who had the original (and, we thought, the best) igloos of the lot. Well now they’ve transformed their pods into ‘Paradise Pods’. The pods (which are basically igloos without the perspex coverings) have been decorated in their new Tulum (Mayan) theme, so plenty of bold colour and foliage thanks to luscious palms and cacti. Lounge away on a beanbag in private pod while admiring the stunning skyline and river (Coppa Club is by Tower […]

We Review: The Basque Menu at Bar Boulud

What? Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud’s most recent trip saw him head to Savoie and onto the neighbouring Basque Country. On his travels he filled up on fresh fish, pinxtos and bacalao, his new spring menu brings together these classic dishes and flavours. New? No, Bar Boulud was Daniel Boulud’s first UK venture, opening back in 2010 and it remains his only London restaurant, his Basque-inspired spring menu, however, launched at the end of April.   Where? Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London 66 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7LA, www.mandarinoriental.com The Look: Based on the feel of a wine cellar, Bar Boulud isn’t opulent […]

Clucking Hell! The Chicken Van That Just Became A Restaurant!

Cluck me! Mother Clucker have only gone and opened an actual mother clucking restaurant… mother cluckers! The streetfood specialists have spent the last five years honing their Southern fried chicken skills on the mean streets of South London, and South London really does know its fried chicken. And so it’s little surprise to hear that they’ve now decided to go big or go home with a bricks-and-mortar permanent home in Exmouth Market. We should look forward to some excellent breakfasts, (seriously strong coffee, like seriously), New Orleans inspired cocktails including Sex On The Rocks, Peeking Through The Grass Skirts and Kermit’s […]

10 Reasons To Visit Madrid

I spent nearly three years living in Madrid, relentlessly exploring all the city has to offer, and since returning to London I’ve written a novel loosely based on my experiences. When Evie, the main character, moves to Madrid she is initially disappointed by the lack of flamenco guitar players on every corner, bullfighters strutting down the streets and beautiful flowers dangling off every balcony. Madrid may not have the picturesque beauty of Andalucía, or the endless beaches of Barcelona, but Evie soon finds herself falling head over heels in love with the charm of the city. The Spanish like to say […]

ALL The Royal Wedding Stuff Going On

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few months you’re probably getting to the yawn and groan stage of royal wedding coverage. Hunker down, it’s going to get a lot worse. Or better still, find that rock now and hide under it. But perhaps you’re the sort of soul who instinctively reaches for a Union Jack at the every thought of a royal wedding? Do you get out of bed when Radio 4 play the national anthem at 1am or collect royal crockery and other regal tat? Then we have a treat for you: all the […]

May is a glorious month in the UK. Two bank holidays and the heady scent of summer approaching are solid reasons to be joyful. This year, we’ve even been thrown a royal wedding for good measure.

Welcome to our guide of theatre, art and exhibitions that London is generously bestowing upon us this May.

We Review: W New York Times Square

What? New York, The Big Apple, the city that never sleeps. It’s my favourite city (after London of course, my loyalty runs deep) and on my last visit, I wanted to go all out, I wanted to go big, I wanted to stay right in the heart of the city: Times Square. So, I headed to W New York – Times Square, a minute from Times Square? Check. Two seconds from a Starbucks? You betcha. 99 cent pizza so close you can smell it? Yep. It had everything I needed for my all-American stay. New? Nope, it’s been open since […]

Churchill At Sea: The Nautical Themed Terrace

When we think of Winston Churchill it’s generally the dashing young cavalry officer, or else the wartime hero in his RAF uniform but did you know that he was in charge of the Royal Navy? As First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 to 1915 he great man spent months aboard HMS Enchantress, a yacht that steamed him around the British Isles and Mediterranean to visit warships, naval bases and partake in a little pre-war tourism. And it’s this period that The Churchill Bar & Terrace are celebrating with the launch of their new nautical terrace. Inspired by Churchill’s travels on Enchantress […]
