If you’re anything like me you wince every time you’re slapped in the face by a blast of dirty underground air. Throw in the Autumn chill and dry indoor heating and the idea of a facial was most welcome. And what better time than National Chocolate Week when Sanook Spa were offering a special Chocolate Facial. The spa is in the basement of the 5 star Courthouse Hotel, just down from Liberty. Much smaller than I expected, it was very well equipped and I’d imagine that during the day it would be very peaceful. I arrived at 6pm, flustered and straight from […]
If the Mad Hatter opened a museum then this would be the outcome. Culinary curators Bompas & Parr have already delighted Londoners with their breathable alcoholic experience and Buckingham Palace made of jelly, and now they are bringing their trademark quirky theatrics to the civilised bounds of Borough Market. Nothing they do is really just for fun (although of course it is fun), there is always some kind of underlying motive or curiosity, their latest venture being no exception. The British Museum of Food will be the world’s first devoted to all things food; history, evolution, science, sociology and art. […]
In Mexico, Day of the Dead is celebrated with face paint, marigolds and foodie offerings to passed loved ones, and in London… we have DJs, bands, debates, immersive theatre and a whole lotta great food. Of course such a fiesta is being put on by Wahaca which means that no dancer will go unfueled. Traditional style stalls will be serving Mexican market tacos, roasted elotes (grilled corn), smokey barbacoa (pulled pork) and perhaps our favourite hispanic dish of all… churros. At this post-Hallowe’en party you can enjoy live music from The Horrors and Crystal Fighters and the more authentic sounds […]

Whether we like to admit it or not, listening to “I Can’t Make You Love Me” after a break up may trigger a little tear. OK, fine, many tears. Music can make you feel many things but we’ve got to say you’d be a little weird to admit it has ever made you laugh. If you think about it, comedy and music would really be quite a good pairing. Throw a glamorous hotel bar into the mix and you have yourself Comedy Notes at Scarfes Bar; the first musical comedy night in the UK hosted and founded by TV comedienne […]
We can’t say we’d ever want our Earl Grey shaken but a James Bond inspired afternoon tea promises drinks to be stirred not shaken. On the 26th October we will be able to feast our eyes on our favourite tuxedo-clad secret service agent as Daniel Craig hits the big screen for the fourth time. Fingers crossed that the white trunks will make another appearance but we won’t hold our breath. In the meantime we Brits will turn to the only thing we know in times of suspense, anticipation or downright boredom; tea. Luckily for us the ‘stirred not shaken’ afternoon […]
Along with fast cars, martinis, well-tailored suits and women, we’re pretty sure cabaret would feature on a list of James Bond’s top things, how could he say no to the performers and costumes? And to celebrate the launch of Sceptre, The London Cabaret Club is hosting a series of exciting, performances at the Bloomsbury Ball Room titled, ‘London Never Dies.’ Starting this weekend and running every Friday and Saturday until November 7th, each show will be based on classic Bond films including You Only Live Twice and From Russia With Love. Expect glamour, Bollywood dancers, mystery, Geishas, live music and […]
Ever spent the night dancing away convinced that you’d easily burnt away all the calories you’ve been drinking? Of course have, we all have, but unfortunately a few twirls to Beyonce’s Single Ladies probably didn’t improve your fitness the way thought it did. What will help is a session at Neon Fuel, a London-based street dance and travel company, who is holding monthly Fierce Heels dance brunches. Guests are encouraged to don their favourite pair of high heels during the class while learning a choreographed dance routine, but the best part comes afterwards when you are rewarded with an unlimited […]
When we think of brunch we think of a light, airy room with worn wooden floorboards, sugar in mini jam jars and generous plates of eggs benedict, with a hungry queue on the street outside and maybe a few screaming babies. Forget everything you know about brunch and replace it with dim lights, loud music and steak, egg and chips. Much less somewhere to drag your weary hungover self than it is a warm-up venue for your imminent Saturday night antics, STK’s new brunch menu flips everyone’s favourite meal on it’s head. DJs will set the soundtrack to your night […]
