by CHLOE Expands to Tower Bridge

What: by CHLOE is the super successful US-based, plant-based, fast-casual restaurant that took London by storm when it landed here at the end of last year. New? Their Tower Bridge venue opened last month, following the massive popularity of the original UK venue in Covent Garden. First Impression: It’s a little tricky to find, Google Maps had a right old time trying to find it and I doubled my 6-minute journey from London Bridge trying to hunt it down. When I finally slipped down the side road and found it, I was surprised at how empty it was. I went […]

Gluten Free Brunching at Beyond Bread

What: Nowadays, like insta-stories and slogan T’s, brunch is a “thing-to-do”, consuming our Sunday’s with bloody Mary’s and eggs Florentine. Could we call it a trend? Probably not, as it looks like the tasty alternative to breakfast and lunch – but rather a conglomerate of the two –  is here to stay, and I’m not complaining. A hop on the bustling Saturday morning tube to Islington saw me visit Beyond Bread, a bakery that opened-up-shop in Fitzrovia in 2015, and has since expanded onto a counter in Selfridges and a second branch in Islington, that I had the pleasure of […]

Wimble-Done! Where To Watch The Tennis This Summer

It’s that time of year when people start popping up to say ‘it’s Pimms o’clock’ as though they came up with the tagline themselves, we all dust off our tennis whites and wonder why we don’t play all year round and the nation tees itself up for collective disappointment by putting all our championship hopes on some unlikely British wildcard who will, of course, be knocked out in week one. Welcome to Wimbledon 2018. Unless you want to wait in a queue more miserable than Andy Murray’s permafrown, or be trampled to death attempting to reach the bar at an […]

Biggest Lunch Market in East London by KERB

As a developing professional adult, it’s difficult to find a good place to eat for lunch, because you don’t ever want to stick with the same shmuck every. single. day.

There’s no rest for the heat that is drastically increasing our appetites, to be accompanied with a cold drink, but here’s a solution to the people who can’t make their minds as to where they want to eat for lunch. KERB is launching a new site at St. Katherine’s Docks, East London – their sixth and […]

A Decade of Music at Quaglino’s

It’s always a banger when you go to a fancy restaurant and you get live musical entertainment. Though they’re not playing modern music, the impeccable taste could be enjoyed by generations through and through. Take a trip back in time and as you taste the savoury food served, your attention will be diverted somewhere else, you’ll see. This summer until the end of August, Quaglino’s is launching a series of musical performances, “Q Decades – A Musical Journey Through the Years”, starting with a special attendance by singing icon Jocelyn Brown, who will be performing hits including the legendary club […]

11 Ways to Enjoy Wimbledon

New balls please, it’s Wimbledon again. But rather than joining a queue that stretches to Morden and back, or desperately trying to break through a human wall twenty bodies thick at an SW19 bar, then here are some ideas for you that will be far more sophisticated and enjoyable. Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar London Waterloo (0.3 miles) What: Free Flowing Pimms Why: Wimbledon isn’t Wimbledon without Pimm’s so Gillray’s is letting you swap the bottomless G&Ts in the G&T afternoon tea for free-flowing Pimm’s. Either tuck into a free flowing afternoon tea or strawberries and cream. Go steady though, we all know […]

Beautiful Allotment: Bourne & Hollingsworth Team Launch Summer Pop-Up

We were discussing in the office what happens in an allotment, answers ranged from petty disputes between who has been stealing whose watering can to ‘surely the ideal place to bury a body? Down the allotments’ (for once, I wasn’t the only one to think this). Why the allotment talk? The Handbook isn’t about to swap to growing prize carrots, it’s because the team behind Bourne & Hollingsworth is opening Beautiful Allotment inside the Victorian gardens of the Geffrye Museum. The space will be transformed with day beds, handcrafted potting sheds, BBQ areas, makeshift cocktail bars and handpicked pieces of […]

Mister Fitz’s: Doughnut Time Launch Ice Cream Pop-Up

They’re known for their outrageous doughnuts, but now Doughnut Time are turning their hand to ice-cream as they launch their own pop-up parlour Mister Fitz’s Finest Ice Cream. Opening today, they’ll be serving up ice cream sandwiches, because why eat your ice cream out of a cone when you can have it held together by two cookies? Each of the eight sandwiches will have their own distinctive character. Perhaps you’ll want to nibble on John Lemon, aka two lemon scoops served between vanilla cookies and topped with meringue or if you’re into chocolate then get stuck into Choc-ella Deville made […]
