Benefit Opens Gabbi’s Head Pop-Up

A pub is often a man’s domain but this one certainly isn’t. Last night, Benefit Cosmetics launched a pop-up pub for women and we were lucky enough to go along for a sneak preview. The Prince of Wales in the heart of Covent Garden has been completely transformed for Gabbi’s Head’s five-week takeover for the duration of the World Cup. With less spilling of pints more sipping of cocktails, less bangers and mash more canapés and salads and less slot machine players more beauty artists this truly is the ultimate girly getaway. Admittedly upon entering, you are hit by the […]

We may be basking in the sun at the moment, hems are getting shorter- which may or may not be a good thing and the time that it is acceptable to have a gin and tonic is getting earlier – always a good thing, but as we all know British summertime is a variable little thing  and often likes to fool us into a heatwave before bringing the downpours. Which is why  Soho pan-Indian restaurant, Carom, have recently launched The Glasshouse. A solarium-inspired space, it’s a little escape into tropical temperatures, a constant summer – whatever the weather is outside. […]

Kitchenette: Review

Since having opened in Istabul in 2005, the Turkish café, bar and brasserie, Kitchenette, has gone from strength to strength with a total of 24 being opened well across the borders into Baku, St Petersburg and last November it came to Putney.

Their approach is traditional Turkish cooking with a modern Istanbul inspired […]
