A fantastical Future Forest with a walk-in breathable aromatic Fruit Cloud…no this isn’t a description of a live-action remake of Charlie and Chocolate Factory but the latest mind-boggling installation from Bompas & Parr. Arriving at Westfield London on the 15th August the installation will boast a selection of immersive activities including educational events like a mini exhibition showcasing plants that create electricity, the magic of spider silk, and a historic tree circus alongside artefacts, artworks and anecdotes about forests and nature. Once you’ve blown your mind with all of that wackiness, get your heart pumping with UK’s first shopping centre […]
This morning it was strangely quiet on your way to work – you didn’t almost get runover by a pack of scooters and the bus stops were emptier, but then at lunch you go out and suddenly there are children everywhere. Yep it’s the summer holidays, if you don’t have children it’s a distant memory, something we miss each year whilst we wonder if we can suggest to our bosses that we have an extra six weeks off. If you have children then you definitely know it’s the holidays. If you’re looking for ways to keep little ones entertained or […]
Lucky & Joy: the new pop-up bringing the Far East to the not so Far East. Taking up it’s residency under the arches on Cambridge Heath Road it’s run by Ellen Parr (co-founder of The Art of Dining) and Pete Kelly. The kitsch pop-up will serve a menu that maps the breadth of regional Chinese cooking, with techniques and flavours collected on their travels through China and Ellen’s time in the kitchens of Moro and Rochelle Canteen. You’ll find the likes of Xinjiang cumin lamb ribs hailing from the provence of North-West Muslim China; Bang Bang chicken salad – a […]
It’s unlikely you’ve ever been to a pharmacy for fun, (we say unlikely because we’re not going to judge), no your usual trips probably involve prescriptions and mystery rashes. That was until now. Five years ago, a bar opened up in Earls Court masquerading as detective agency, those in the know, knew that to gain access they just had to explain their case to the detective, well now Evans & Peel are dabbling in pharmaceuticals as the Evans & Peel Pharmacy opens in Chiswick. Upon entering the 1920’s pharmacy, you’ll meet the legendary pharmacist, before making your way to the […]
What did the ocean say to the lighthouse? Nothing, it just waved. Thank you, we’re here all week. But, if the ocean could speak I’m sure it would ask the lighthouse, (specifically Erith Lighthouse on the border of London and Kent), if it knew of any amazing supper clubs happening soon. Well if any oceans or hungry Londoners were wondering, they would be in luck as across August (10th to 27th) and September (7th to 24th) a collection of chefs will host 17 dinners at Erith Lighthouse, each creating distinct menus to complement Erith’s unique riverside location. The menus will take inspiration […]
If we sultrily whispered the words: rooftop, gin and exclusive, to Londoners, chances are they’d get a little flustered. You can keep your 50 Shades of Grey stuff, in London what gets us really going is the chance to drink gin and get an Instagram of that #ViewOfLondon – don’t judge. It’s why ‘Seaside in the Sky’ at The Gherkin is so popular and it’s why you need to hurry up and book yourself in. Normally only open to members, Searcys at The Gherkin and the bar are now open to the public until the 1st September. Inspired by our […]
There’s going to be a dog tea party and it’s going to be excellent. Why? Because it’s going to have hot dogs (the edible kind), hot dogs (the cute four-legged kind), Champagne (the only kind) and it’s going to raise money for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Taking place at bubbledogs, there’ll be a menu of homemade dog treats for your canine chum and hot dogs for us, which are dog themed in name and nature. The German Shepherd is topped with grilled sauerkraut, honey mustard beer sauce and pretzel crumb; The Mutt with peanut butter with Cheddar and salty […]
And just like that we’re in August already – this year is flying by and whilst it appears that our summer was fleeting and has now gone (why we say this like we’re surprised we don’t know) that isn’t going to stop us making the most of August by visiting the best pop-ups and supper clubs; which this month seems to include some rather obscure drinks – beer made from lobster anyone?
Here’s a question? Do you think crabs look at us and think we walk sideways? Something to ponder on when you head to Fancy Crab, perhaps slightly morbidly as the crab will be on your plate. Having just opened on Wigmore Street, Fancy Crab is pretty self-explanatory…it’s crab and it’s fancy. The crab in question is Red King Crab, one of the most sought after in the world, always wild, never farmed, check out that for a line, ‘Hey, I’m Red King Crab, always wild, never farmed’. You know it’d be a cool crab. You’ll find the crab in crab […]
