Rockstar Treatment at Jumeirah Carlton Tower

Chances are, if you’re in London you’re after a culture fix. Unless of course you call London home in which case culture is probably just part of your weekly routine – a gig here, exhibition there, you get the idea. Whilst we at The Handbook whole heartedly believe that dining out counts as a form of culture, be it a must-try restaurant or cult street food truck, it fills your cultural appetite as well as the physical, leaving you with something to talk about, share with your friends and post on social media, in much the same way as a […]

Live DJs, Fried Chicken and Cocktails

Creme Eggs are in the shops which means one thing and one thing only: it’s nearly Easter. Chocolate replaces anything remotely healthy for our 4pm pick-me-up and plans for our 4-day weekend are firmly in place. Well, almost – getting 6 free spirited Londoners to commit to hiring a cottage in deepest darkest Somerset is no easy feat. Something slightly easier to commit to is this Wednesday evening – Hip Hop and RnB at Billy and the Chicks, Soho. If the name Billy and the Chicks isn’t Easter-y enough, we can now hip hop over to their chicken restaurant in […]

Complimentary Masterclasses at St Pancras Renaissance

You probably think of King’s Cross as a kind of no-man’s land if the only times you’re there are when you’re sprinting through the barriers to platform 3 or when sheep leisurely grazing on the tracks near Peterborough have made your 14:47 more like a 15:47. All a bit of a shame, really, when you consider the quality of restaurants in the area; German Gymnasium, Caravan, The Grain Store, Vinoteca, we could go on… But the grandest destination of them all? St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Just seeing the beautiful red brick building has us yearning for the porter to pick up […]

Eat the Movies: Cinema Supper Club

Ever drooled at a scene in a movie? Does the pasta Julia Roberts eats in the Italian part of Eat, Pray Love give you serious carb cravings? Bridget Jones have you reaching for the Ben & Jerry’s? We bring you news of an event that combines two of our favourite things: film and food. PECKish is a supper club with a twist that serves the audience of a cult classic film a 5-course meal, inspired by the movie itself. No more on-screen food envy. Each month shows a different film – March is the turn of one of the all-time […]

Secret Cinema Welcomes Danny Boyle

We recently told you (as much as we could) about Secret Cinema’s “Tell No One” showing but now things are a little less… secret as we bring you news of their latest production in the ‘Secret Cinema Presents’ series, starting with Danny Boyle’s cult classic, 28 Days Later. Whilst we love spontaneity and surprise, there are some things we would rather be prepared for, and this is one of them – you may be a bit shocked if you turn up expecting Bridget Jones and are presented with this post-apocalyptic thriller instead. But not as shocked as you will be […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

Bobbi Brown’s Beautiful Afternoon Tea

We all know afternoon tea is a beautiful thing, and it’s about to get a whole lot more so. The iconic classic beauty brand Bobbi Brown is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and in a very British way: afternoon tea. There’s a chance to be as immaculate and polished as your surroundings when you tuck into your Balthazar afternoon tea, just round the corner from Bobbi Brown’s Covent Garden flagship studio. Oh, and it happens to be one of Bobbi’s favourite restaurants – the New York branch is just round the corner from her office. Having previously paired up […]

The Hospital Club: Asking the Big Questions

Anything that claims it is ‘the best week night you can have without sex’ really backs itself, but if thinking big is your thing and you’re looking for an injection of culture into your life (and aren’t we all?) then Salon London’s claim might just be right. Launching with the tag line ‘A lot more fun than it sounds’ – always promising – the cultural monthly events discuss big ideas in the worlds of science, art and psychology and they have just announced a series of talks at The Hospital Club. Open to members and non-members alike, the three talks […]

London Fashion Week might be finishing today but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop being the sartorial don that you are…the streets are your catwalk and all that. And what isn’t finishing is The Montagu’s Haute -Tea which is running until March 31st. Combining food with all the other things we love, (food and art, food and sport etc) is one of our favourite things, so food and fashion is definitely up there.

Secret Cinema Returns: Tell No One

The Secret Cinema is exactly what it says on the tin… secret. In fact this new Tell No One experience is so secret and the team are being so coy with us that we can’t tell you that much. However what we can tell you is that the 22nd production which follows the likes of Shawshank Redemption and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, starts tonight and runs until the March 20th and new tickets have been released. This interactive experience will be brought to life with over 35 actors, live music and a spectacular story and whilst we don’t […]

‘Try January’ at Pop Brixton

It seems as though Pop Brixton have been listening to us moaning about having to think up an original New Year’s resolution, and no ‘eat healthier’, ‘drink less’ and ‘lose weight/get fit’ don’t count. One that is slightly more original is ‘learn something new’ – focus on gaining rather than losing. Goodbye Dry January, hello Try January… Community focused Pop Brixton was set up as a way to bring the community together and give local and independent businesses a chance to get their work seen by like-minded people. In December it transformed into an alternative Christmas market but the fairy […]

Christmas Cinema With Craft London

With the weather being this miserable what you need is some cinema, festive classics to warm your bones. Good thing then that restaurant, Craft London has joined up with the Greenwich Peninsula for three evenings of Christmas films. Taking place on the 10th, 11th and 12th December the 30 seater Tom Dixon designed cinema will be showing The Nightmare Before Christmas, It’s a Wonderful Life and Love Actually. Curl up from the cold, snuggle up to your nearest and dearest and whilst you’re watching sip cocktails and tuck into artisanal popcorn – none of that sickly sweet stuff here. Then […]
