Extravagant Chinese Dining at Park Chinois

What? The epitome of Chinese haute cuisine set in the most extraordinarily flamboyant of worlds, harking back to the 1920’s jazz emporiums of Shanghai. New? Park Chinois opened early last year after a reported £16m was spent on it. It provides a fantastical slant on Chinese food and has rekindled our love of the dinner and dance of yesteryear. Where? The restaurant boast a very discreet and mysterious entrance, yet still grand in all its detail – jade iron gates, two hefty red wooden doors with imperial guardian lion knockers, cherry blossom doorway and royal red carpet, all found in the heart of Mayfair’s famous […]

Juniper Manor: Sipsmith’s Immersive Gin and Dining Pop-Up

What exactly is it about gin that prompts eccentricity?

Mayfair’s New Ice Cream Pop-up

There was once a time when we were satisfied by the classic ice cream flavours; the chocolates, the strawberries and, if we were feeling particularly wild, maybe a Neapolitan. Just like all good things, our tastes have changed and we’re looking for something with more je ne sais quois. Step in Italian restaurant Mercante. They’ve teamed up with artisan gelato makers La Gelatiera to bring a pop-up retro gelato cart to their terrace throughout the summer, as well as serving a 3-course ice cream pairing menu. Hurrah! With more flavours released throughout the summer, you’ll find the likes of honey, […]

For the past 18 months, two of the most prominent names in the bar industry, The Social Company’s group bar executive Jamie Jones and City Social’s […]
