A freebie at the all-new Anise

If you're a regular at any of Vivek Singh's mouth-watering Indian restaurants in London, you'll have noticed the vivacious Cinnamon Kitchen – near Liverpool Street – has been missing its branched-on bar, Anise. But that's all about to change – thankfully – as the bar reopens after a complete revamp. The sleek new interiors and refurbished bar, famous for its Bhangra beats and as a perfect location for a post-working-week celebration, has another surprise to share with us all…. On Friday 26th October, Anise will be giving away a free Calcutta Cocktail – a concoction of Bombay Sapphire, assam tea, […]

PPQ for Baroque

We’ve already brought you news of the opening of Baroque the other week but we reckon the new staff uniforms deserve a mention in their own right. They’ve been designed by PPQ’s Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker – whose creations are favoured by celebs from Alexa Chung to Rihanna. For the girls it’s smouldering glamour with super smart tailoring in velvets, satins and lurexes: “I wanted to make them feel chic and alluring, but at all times professional and demure. The door girls have fox lamb fur trimmed felt wool capes and coats that are film noir in the making,” […]

Breakfast at Quo Vadis

Right now in media land, lunch is truly for wimps. Breakfast is definitely where it’s at. But here’s the thing, I can actually count my favourite power breakfast venues on the fingers of one hand!

Super chef Jeremy Lee has drawn up a delectable menu of early morning favourites, inspired by the iconic restaurant’s British and seasonal fare – all guaranteed to set you up for the day.

Volupte is transforming its Bon Bon bar to… yes, you've guessed it, The Bond Bond Bar. The Martini den at Volupte is where guests will also be able to hedge their bets on the numerous poker tables (where they can win two free tickets to opening night at the RichMix in Bethnal Green).
