Dance of the Seven (Vodka) Veils

ABSOLUT has thought well outside the bottle (or The Box even) for its new 2013 edition. ABSOLUT Elyx Dance of the Silk Veils. The brew is distilled in a 1920s vintage copper still for a ‘natural taste and silky finish’. And inspired by said silky finish, ABSOLUT teamed up with London’s The Box nightclub to create an actual ABSOLUT Elyx Dance of the Silk Veils (what else?), where layers of copper coloured silk are removed by the dancer until a magnum bottle of the tipple is UNveiled. The dance and the bottle were launched earlier this week at The Box […]

Lazybones in Farringdon

It’s said that the people make a place, and this couldn’t be more obvious than at exciting new diner Lazybones in Farringdon. Almost a stone’s throw from the station, Lazybones exudes chilled out charm, with mission of ‘slow meat, hard drinks’ and the most friendly, down-to-Earth staff you’ll ever meet. Everyone who steps over the threshold is greeted like an old friend, and although Lazybones should easily fall into the category of East London haunts too cool for their own good, the amazing, welcoming atmosphere rescues the place from that fashionable fate. The menu at Lazybones is not the most […]

Expect dishes like Blackened Creole Hanger Steak, Battered Deep Dried Catfish tails with Slaw and Hot sauce, Deep fried Soft shell Crab, Momma's Southern Fried Chicken and Muffuletta as well as three variations of the rice dish, Jambalaya.
