Fulham Really is the Place to be as The Little Blue Door Opens

The Little Yellow Door was how we all imagine living in London was going to be, one long party, with plenty of drinks, no tidying up and a Notting Hill postcode to match. But just like when your favourite housemate leaves and suddenly everything falls apart, The Little Yellow Door has now closed its door and had their locks changed. The flatmates have moved on, getting their own places in different areas and the first flatmate has set up shop in Fulham, with The Little Blue Door. A new home which will act as a late-night neighbourhood bar and restaurant, […]

Become a Coffee Connoisseur with Black Sheep Coffee

Coffee, it’s the fuel that all Londoners run off until the evening when gin/beer/wine takes over. But how much do you actually know about coffee, really? Sure, you might know your flat whites from your lattes and you might know where to go to get a decent coffee and where to avoid; but do you know the journey that the bean makes from the farm to the cup? Do you really know how to judge the perfect cup of coffee and what a barista’s life is really like? (Don’t answer if you’re a barista, it’s cheating). As part of Mastercard’s […]

Taste A Cocktail Inspired By David Bowie

There are few places that positively ooze class (and the phrase ‘ooze class’ certainly doesn’t), but The American Bar at The Savoy is one of them. This art deco masterpiece of a bar is matryoshka dolled inside an even greater art deco masterpiece, The Savoy Hotel, itself one of London’s grandest hotels and history is in the hotel’s very DNA. So when we hear they’re launching a new cocktail menu we take notice.  Even more importantly, it’s Head Bartender Erik Lorincz’s final menu at the American Bar as he’ll be leaving next month; all of which points to this being something very […]

Bottomless Pizza at Gordon Ramsay’s New Restaurant

He might normally make a lot of noise in the kitchen, but Gordon Ramsay has rather quietly opened Street Pizza within Bread Street Kitchen. He’s kept things casual, saying that ‘pizza doesn’t need to be complicated’ so for £15 you’ll get bottomless sourdough pizza served by the slice in five flavours: Margherita, pepperoni, charred aubergine, corn and chorizo and a daily changing special. Cocktails will start at just £6, female DJs will take to the decks throughout the week, you can’t book and most importantly (after the pizza) there’s a Negroni ice-cream machine. As Ramsay says,  “If there’s one thing […]

We don’t want to jinx it, but we think (touch wood) that we might be out of winter, spring might actually be here.

The Hotel Launching In Actual Space

For hotels, space is now the final frontier. And there was me thinking it was bidets. A company has launched the first space hotel and everyone’s going mad for it. If you find checking into a hotel a bit of a faff, getting your key, ordering a wake up call and hearing how the minibar works, then you ain’t seen nothing. A hotel just launched where you have to do a three month course before even setting foot inside. Not a fan of elevators? This one’s 200 miles high. Welcome to Aurora Station. The given launch date of 2021 seems […]
