Get PISTE At Archer Street Cocktail Bar

Archer Street Cocktail Bar is once again the best place in London to get PISTE. After a long day spent on the nursery slopes of Regent Street, slaloming up and down St Martin’s Lane or battling the black run that is Picadilly Circus then the perfect place to peel off the layers and relax is PISTE, the ski lodge popup at Archer Street Cocktail Bar. Given we’ve spent the summer months luxuriating in Archer Street Cocktail Bar’s Antigua and Barbuda Shack sipping cocktails and imagining ourselves by the white island sands, the transformation from Carribean beach shack to apres ski […]

London’s First Guacamole and Tequila Bar

We need to taco bout Cantina Laredo, because just when we thought we couldn’t love Mexican cuisine more, the modern Mexican restaurant in Covent Garden hit us with the most mexcellent news we’ve had all week. This winter sees London’s first dedicated guacamole and tequila bar open within the restaurant, where the in-house ‘Guacamaestro’ (are they still taking applications..?) will theatrically prepare ‘The Great Eight Guacamoles’ right in front of you, as you sip on margaritas from the certified ‘Tequilistas’. Either way, if they were looking for a way to brighten up our winter, they’ve guacked it. Cantina Laredo only […]

Hello Halloumi Pop-up

What did the cheese say to itself when it looked in the mirror? Nothing, cheese can’t talk. You probably thought we were going to say hallou-mi…we just like to keep you on your toes, but enough with the cheese puns, let’s get straight to the point. It seems as if our prayers really are being answered because in the same week that we told you there was going to be a restaurant dedicated to avocado, we also find out that this November, there is going to be a pop-up where halloumi will feature in every dish including in the pudding!

Immersive Bottomless Cheese Festival

We literally can’t think of anything that we’d rather be immersed in more than cheese. We love cheese. Everyone loves cheese. If the idea of being a human fondue sets you off, then you’re going to love what’s coming to Greenwich this Christmas. A giant, immersive cheeseboard.  You gauda believe it! Greenwich events space Studio 338 is gearing up to host a huge cheese festival in the run up to Christmas and it sounds delicious. The main attraction: a great big cheeseboard with towering blocks of cheeses. Scuttle round the cheeseboard like mice in a seriously infested kitchen (or, if […]

Festival on Old Street Roundabout

The Beach Boys may have round-round-got-around-they-got-around, but they probably didn’t expect that it’d be taken quite so literally at Old Street roundabout. Magic Roundabout returns to the centre of the Old Street roundabout tomorrow and brings the vibes of 60s uber-festival Woodstock to Shoreditch. And its not only the 60s, each decade from the swinging 60s to the 1990s will be represented in separate areas, starting with a Magic Roundabout interpretation of flower-power at Woodstock and a seazy-but-sexy 1970s Playboy lounge, of course replete with sheepskins and a log fire. The main bar will pay homage to the 80s with […]

Sloane Square’s Notorious Underground Venue is Back

There’s more to Sloane Square than just being the home of Peter Jones and the end of the Kings Road. For the last five years it’s hidden one of London’s most notorious and innovative venues: Tonteria. Hosting the likes of Rihanna, Leonardo Di Caprio and HRH Princes William and Harry, it’s been five years of tequila, frozen margaritas and parties. Now, to celebrate their birthday they’ve only gone and got themselves a new birthday suit.
