We Review: Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner

What: London’s first 100% vegan diner. New? As any vegan worth their salt will know, Camden is the place to go for vegan food with more and more vegan eateries popping up by the week. Rudy’s Dirty Vegan Diner is the newest addition as of April 2018, joining neighbours like Young Vegans and V Burger. Where? It took us no less than 20 minutes to find this place even with Google Maps and asking several other stalls and staff; so you don’t struggle like we did it’s about 10 seconds from The Cheese Bar. North Yard, Camden Market, NW1 8AH […]

Something Fishy’s Going On In Bloomsbury

NEPTUNE! The eighth and farthest planet, orbiting the sun every 165 years – wait, scrub that. NEPTUNE! The London-based investment management firm specialising in – no, no, wrong again. NEPTUNE! The intemperate Roman god of the waves, brother of Jupiter – okay, getting warmer. NEPTUNE! The latest restauarant from Brett Redman and Margaret Crow, the the duo behind Hackney’s The Richmond, comes to The Principal – bingo, the only Neptune worth hearing about (apologies to Nasa, the FT and the Roman Empire).

Clucking Hell! The Chicken Van That Just Became A Restaurant!

Cluck me! Mother Clucker have only gone and opened an actual mother clucking restaurant… mother cluckers! The streetfood specialists have spent the last five years honing their Southern fried chicken skills on the mean streets of South London, and South London really does know its fried chicken. And so it’s little surprise to hear that they’ve now decided to go big or go home with a bricks-and-mortar permanent home in Exmouth Market. We should look forward to some excellent breakfasts, (seriously strong coffee, like seriously), New Orleans inspired cocktails including Sex On The Rocks, Peeking Through The Grass Skirts and Kermit’s […]

Kayak Up The Thames With Talisker Whisky

What’s brown, liquidy and smells? Yes, Talisker Whisky, but also The Thames. So what a perfect collaboration that the two have paired up for a kayak extravaganza, along with Secret Adventures? Secret Adventures offer the ultimate in off-grid adventure, and now they’re encouraging us to get up-close-and-personal with the river we spend our lives walking alongside, over and under. Despite being a central feature of the city that houses over eight million of us, so few of us will have had any real interaction with the iconic body of water (unless you’re one of these people who commutes on that […]

Spot The Newcomer, The Leopard Bar Coming To Victoria

There’s nothing in life that can’t be made 100% cooler if you wrap it in leopard print. Leopard print Crocs? Tick. Radio 2? Yes. A paragliding Nigel Farage in a thong? Grudgingly yes, but please get that image out of my head. Wrap it all in leopard print and you’ve got yourself a super-cool spotty beast. Which is what The Rubens At The Palace has gone and done. The hotel, overlooking Buckingham Palace, is opening a new bar and everything, yes everything, will be leopard print. A signature of the Red Carnation Hotel Group, the Leopard Bar is pretty much […]

London’s First Clean Air Bar

Take a deep breath… hold it in…and now exhale all that toxic London air. Apparently London air is so filthy that living and breathing here is the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
