Have We Got Summer Terraces For You?

As much as we adore London’s cosy, traditional pubs seeped in history, there comes a time when an al-fresco Aperol spritz triumphs, which is why we’ve rounded up some of our favourite London terraces, for a classier night of inebriation. Summer, we’re ready! The Perrier-Jouët Champagne Terrace at Harrod’s Harrod’s, the quintessential British shop, if you’re a tourist at least (if you’re a local, Sainsbury’s is probably more quintessentially British), and now they’ve got in on the terrace action, launching The Perrier-Jouët Champagne Terrace. The outdoor terrace, set on the fourth floor of the iconic building, facing South West to maximise […]

A Sky-High Botanical Glasshouse Comes To London

This dreary weather is becoming a bore. We’re itching to crack out the maxi-dresses, sandals and down a few cocktails without having the fear of a potential downpour at any moment. Alas, we’ve found somewhere that’s guaranteed to bring a splash of fun to our British summer and that’s the new botanical glasshouse opening at Searcys at The Gherkin. From July 15th, you can be immersed in this new natural haven. Decked out with exotic plants and flowers, The Glasshouse will become an oasis of greenery – despite being at the top of one of London’s most iconic skyscrapers. Created […]

Where To Eat Out In… Soho

Soho could have easily been named Tally Ho! The name Soho was apparently coined as it was the hunting cry of Duke of Monmouth, rather than the more common ‘tally ho’. We can’t decide which would have been better, but in any case ‘tally ho!’ to all these restaurant...

The Robatayaki Restaurant We’re Raving About

Firing up London food enthusiasm with its charred smokiness and grilling methods is the robata grill; robata being a new buzz word on the food scene it seems. And, whilst unpredictable smatterings of rain are leading to our summer BBQ dreams to be quashed, the robata grill has taken the reigns on grilled food, with restaurants inclusive of Thousand Knives, Bala Baya, Meraki and more putting the robata on our radars. Short for robatayaki (meaning “fireside grilling”), the robata is a Japanese creation that uses wood or charcoal to create a smoking hot, glowing burn that produces sensational flavours and […]

Say You’ll Be There, 6 Ways To Celebrate The Spice Girls Tour

It’s been twenty five years since we were high-kicking in Kappa trousers and trying to figure out what the hell a zig-a-zig-aaah is. Tamagotchis ruled the world, and Tony Blair (Cool Britannia, guitar playing, Tony Blair, not Middle East bombing, American lapdog Tony Blair) wasn’t yet ruling the country. Looking back it’s another world, but one that’s making a come back. The Spice Bus is rolling into town. The Spice Girls reunion (except Posh, which is no real loss) is big news and as the tour comes to London the action’s not only at Wembley Stadium. So here’s some Spice […]

Don’t Say Neigh To Riding House Café

Riding House Café; I’d heard the name drifting off many a London dwellers tongue but I myself was yet to visit. The time to go seemed apt upon an interview with the new Made in Chelsea cast, all of which name dropped the Fitzrovia fave. Plus, a peruse on Instagram informed me that Radio 1 DJ Greg James and entourage had attended the evening before to sit snug in a booth and chat music. So, off I trundled through a bustling Oxford Street, the crowds reflective of warmer climes boosting the capital’s population with enthusiastic bag shoppers and camera snappers. Riding […]

The Ultimate Guide To Father’s Day In London

Father’s Day is often brushed aside and forgotten about while everyone rigorously plans out elaborate celebrations for next year’s Mother’s Day. Dads are the ones who fork out lump sums when we’re running low on rent…again. And try endlessly to get us to support their...

Some Gin-ius Ways To Celebrate World Gin Day This Weekend

Gin, it’s mother’s ruin, it’s what kept the British Empire free of Malaria, it’s my granny’s favourite drink. And yet, somehow it’s not at all fusty. In fact, it’s doing incredibly well, genteel restaurants serve it with afternoon tea, hipsters down the...
