A Pre-Work Dance Party Comes to West London

Wake up. Hit the snooze button (x3). Feel guilty about skipping the gym. Sound familiar? Us too. Running or cycling or lifting weights facing a white wall can just get so boring. That combined with the comfort and warmth of our beds just makes it really difficult to get out the front door in the morning. But there’s this phenomena that has taken over New York and East London; it goes by the name of Daybreaker and is a pre-work (sober) dance party now making it’s way to West London.

London’s Only Private Rooftop Cinema Returns

The Christmas decorations are down and so is the mercury; leaving work when it’s 2 degrees outside has us wanting to head straight home and hygge. An evening of candles, hot water bottles and a movie sounds particularly appealing but if your new year’s resolution resembles something along the lines of making time for friends, date night or even just for yourself then don’t be so quick to reach for your front door key. High above the streets of Knightsbridge, The Berkeley is relaunching its rooftop cinema for the new year to help ease the January blues with a touch […]
