The Bars That’ll Jazz You Up

In a world where pop songs, Justin Beebs, and the “dun dun dun” of night clubs swamp our auditory ear-ways, jazz is a much needed throwback that can be found in various inconspicuous places across the city. So, if Frank Sinatra has got you under the skin and you get a kick out of Ella Fitzgerald (how rude), then why not Take Five and Sing, Sing, Sing at the following jazz bars.

The Saville Row Resto That Suits Us

What: Savile Row is such a contemporary London staple that the mention of it rings with richness, enticing images of after work suit wearers sipping on red wine, propped against an up-market pub deluxe. Yes, Savile Row is the Mayfair street known for its traditional bespoke tailoring for men and on it lies Sartoria, which translates to tailor in Italian, a very suit-able restaurant discovery. Of course, Sartoria and its Italian cuisine was far from just being suitable, instead we were charmed if not bewitched by its sultry glamour. Going along on a Wednesday evening after a day in the […]

Dante NYC Cocktail Bar Shakes up an Inferno

Quite a few noteworthy things have popped out from New York; from the Waldorf salad and teddy bears to the Tom Collins and pneumatic railway. It’s an innovative city and whenever anything New York City related steps in to any walk of life, we kinda know it’s going to be grandiose, big and probably done pretty darn well! Which is why the news of Dante NYC popping up in Quaglino’s bar is something to shout about. The menu on offer will consist of 10 drinks which can be enjoyed over the space of the week-long residency. This sumptuous list will […]

You Batter Try This Yorkshire Pudding Brunch

What: There are many reasons why I love autumn, for 1) the clothes, goodbye dresses that get hot and sticky and hello jumpers, tailored coats and boots 2) no more having to spend every single minute outside for fear of not making the most of the weather and 3) you can now eat comfort food again (although admittedly eating 3 burgers and 2 hotdogs as you would at a BBQ is no longer acceptable which doesn’t seem particularly fair). And I have found the perfect comfort food brunch, at Mark Hix’s restaurant Tramshed in Shoreditch. New? The brunch launched at […]

Counter Culture: London’s Best Counter Dining

However, at the other end of the spectrum comes counter dining; pulling up a pew at the kitchen and really immersing one selves in the whole fandango of it all. With counter culture heating up in London, we thought it time to pull together some of our favourite’s.

The Victoria Street Food Market We’re Pascha-nate About

The mantra being thrown around is ‘from dance hall to market hall,’ as one of the world’s most renowned (and sweaty, Sambuca-shot filled) nightclubs turns its music off  for the sake of food. That’s right, the abandoned arcade that once was Pacha super-club will turn into Market Halls this autumn, becoming a sought-after spot for locals and respite for visitors to the city. When we think hall, we may well think of school… and various plates of food flying across said room. Market Halls takes school to sophistication, with a space as glam as the girls going to Pacha looked […]

Is This Going To Be The Yummy Mummiest Café In London?

You can already hear the battle cries of ‘dah-ling’ as the yummy mummy brigade point their Bugaboos and Silver Crosses toward South Kensington and roll their pramzers over the Fulham border.
