Check Out The Skybar That’s Just Opened In The City

It’s officially the hottest day of the year, so here’s some legit medical advice: head straight to your GP and request they prescribe you a pina colada and roof terrace. And if you’re wondering where to take your prescription, look no further: Jin Bo Law Skybar has literally just opened. The bar, fresh off the plane from Hong Kong, is located on the 14th floor of the new Dorsett City hotel in The City, meaning that it’s got knock-out views across some of London’s most iconic buildings, not to mention views stretching for miles. As you sit on the roof terrace, look […]

Life’s A Beach Over in Fulham

As anyone who recalls their Peter Pan will tell you, the tried-and-tested route to Neverland is second star on the right and straight on ’til morning. OR, you could just wander down the Wandsworth Bridge Road, and Neverland will magically appear in the form of the UK’s least likely beach club. Neverland is back in the form of Fulham Beach Club, and it’s going to be better than ever. Since opening in 2017 this random paradise of white sand and tropical treats has welcomed over 100,000 guests onto its shores, and from next month the quirky attraction returns to it’s […]

Kricket And Brixton Reunited: The Must Visit Indian Heads Home

The sun’s out, blue sky and the smell of mown grass! Time for some Kricket? No, not the endlessly dull summer sport, but the Indian restaurant phenomenon. Kricket, feted for its casual and creative Indian food served out of their Soho flagship restaurant, will be opening in Brixton this May. In a tremendous homecoming, Kricket will return to Brixton as ‘boy done good’. The restaurant was born in POP Brixton back in 2015, went to Soho to seek its fortune, and now, hot on the heels of an opening at the prestigious Television Centre, will be opening back on home-turf in […]

We Review Big Easy’s Boozy Brunch

What? Known for their laid back vibes, live music, BBQ food and hearty portions of comfort food, Big Easy is a big slice of American comfort food dotted throughout London. A place to go for a few drinks and a lot of food. Rock up at the weekend and you’ll find their boozy (note no longer bottomless) brunch, which is exactly what we did. New? Nope, the first Big Easy opened back in 1991 and it’s been 17 years of BBQing, chargilling and seafood. Where? Whilst we visited the original, the Kings Road joint, you’ll also find Big Easy in […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

The Corinthia Launches A New Afternoon Tea And It’s Exactly What We’ve Been Waiting For

Don’t get us wrong, we love a quirky new afternoon tea! But when the email from this or that hotel arrives heralding their latest tea, themed on Fire Extinguishers or Oversized Sports Direct Mugs (okay, you got me, I’m literally looking at items around me in the office, but that’s how random they sometimes are, like seriously), sometimes we just yearn for a simple, old fashioned afternoon tea. Then The Corinthia got in touch. Finally, no cakes shaped after Disney characters, no hackneyed links to tenuous events or celebrations, no corporate tie-ins, just a plain and simple traditional afternoon tea. […]

A Sneak Preview Of Hide, The New Dabbous Restaurant

As Ollie Dabbous double locked the door of his eponymous restaurant for the final time and walked into the sunset, Michelin Star poking out of his cardboard box of possessions, we all knew that he’d be back. Well now he is and in serious style. Welcome to Hide. Dabbous quickly built one of London’s most sought after eating spots in London when he launched back in 2012. His wonder-restaurant seemingly came out of nowhere and raced to the top of everyone’s go-to list. Now he’s had a year in the wilderness (not quite, he launched the highly successful restaurant at The Henrietta), […]

We Review: Bryn Williams at Somerset House

What? Bryn Williams, the celebrated Welsh chef has just opened his first London restaurant in a decade. And it’s all about the vegetables, without being vegetarian. Rather, it champions vegetables, putting them centre stage not just a mere side dish, with meat and fish taking to the wings. New? Yes, it opened at the start of March. I’m sure its opening at the start of March had nothing to do with the start of spring and much more to do with when they were ready to do so, but a veg-centric restaurant opening when the days are getting lighter seemed […]

Prosecco Lovers Wont Want To Miss This!

Most people’s idea of eternal paradise probably involves unlimited fruit trifle and Prosecco springs, where sparkling wine flows from the ground. Well they’ve decided against the trifle bit, but Prosecco Springs will be bringing to life the rest of paradise when they launch in less than a fortnight’s time.

The New French Joint Opening In Primrose Hill

Ferme the front door! There’s a new restaurant coming to Primrose Hill and we’re kinda excited about it. Step forward La Ferme (the farm)! Opened initially as a market stall and then a Farringdon restaurant by a precociously young 20-year-old François Guerin in 2012, La Ferme is a medley of French seasonal cooking and ingredients. The young chef has teamed up with his step brother Guillaume Dunos who will Head Chef the new venture. Dunos has worked in restaurants including Paris’s Gouquets, Prince de Galles and Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme so should be well suited to this new venture. And what […]
