Music Matters at Selfridges

Whilst festivals might be more popular than ever, it seems as if music venues are not. Apparently, it’s estimated that 40% of London’s music venues have closed, but there’s a saviour insight. Not who you might think, because it’s Selfridges… Music Matters at Selfridges will be a three- month campaign across all its stores in London, Manchester and Birmingham and online, to showcase musical talent. Here in London, Selfridges will host the Ultralounge, a live music venue and state of the art visual content studio and interactive platform, which is the brainchild of TEM (The Experience Machine) whose work includes […]

Neil Rankin Opens temper City

Last November London was introduced to temper Soho and it’s safe to say, we welcomed it with opened arms – it’s been hugely successful, so now Neil Rankin is back with temper City and we’re predicting equally big things. Fire and wine will still be at the core, with meat (which is butchered on site) being cooked low and slow over oak and charcoal, but this time the menu will be all about curries from different countries. There’ll be mutton rolls and laksa lamb belly stovies to start; lamb scotch bonnet vindaloo; dry goat; meatball marrow masala; Dashi chip shop […]

On the menu, you’ll find the classic Mare G&T served with mango; a […]

Matcha and Poké Heaven as Tombo Fitzrovia Opens

If there’s one thing that 2017 has taught us, it’s that we can’t get enough of matcha and poké. The Japanese trend has well and truly taken over London, so much so that the guys at Tombo need to open up a third café just to satisfy the city’s craving. They’ve had success in South Kensington and Soho and next they’ll be taking over Fitzrovia. Family run by mother, Manami, and her two sons, Louis and Leo Sloley the newest addition to the Tombo family has been designed by the trio. So we’ve got the authentic Japanese decor sorted, how […]

Steaks and Wine at Gaucho Broadgate

Where? 5 Finsbury Avenue, Broadgate, EC2M 2PG www.gauchorestaurants.com On the Menu: Of course, the main event is the beef, but it’s not all they have to offer and whilst it would be sacrilege to not have steak there are other dishes.
