The London Restaurant Partying Like it’s 1993

Back in 1993 Haymarket was bought to a standstill as 10,000 fans packed the streets to see over 100 film stars partying in London, but it wasn’t for a premier or awards ceremony. It was for the opening of Planet Hollywood and it’s famed for being one of the biggest celebrity launches ever seen...

Gin, it’s our favourite spirit (that’s a plural Londoners our, we don’t take sides here), it’s the epitome of the British summer drink, yep even Pimms is gin-based, a fact we should all know if we want to consider ourselves true Brits, so what could be both more summery and British than a...

Try the World’s Oldest Sandwich

First of all, it’s not actually the world’s oldest sandwich, because that would be nothing more than dust now, unless of course they had whatever makes McDonalds seemingly unable to decompose back in the Qin dynasty of Shanxi Province (that’s 221 BC to 206 BC if you don’t know your...
