The Prettiest Restaurants to Visit in Spring

There’s just something about bringing the outside in that Londoners find particularly enchanting. We can’t decide whether it’s because you feel at one with nature without leaving the hub of the city or whether flowers inside just make things a whole lot prettier, but when said flowers come in the form of giant installations hanging from restaurant ceilings then we are all for it. Blossom is no longer reserved for the streets of Kensington, nor wisteria to desirable Victorian townhouses – now we can all get a fix of nature as we have our dinner. ROKA Charlotte Street, has once […]

Coppa Club Launches Its Summer Riverside Terrace

One of the most talked about events in London last year (besides politics)? Those winter igloos that sprung up at the side of the Thames, quickly going viral on social media and selling out within a week. Well they’ve gone now, igloos in summer, not quite the same… instead there will be seven standalone cabanas and a huge hexagonal bar outside the Coppa Club’s riverside terrace. The pergola structures will be furnished with sofas, wicker armchairs, festoon lighting, space heaters and individual Sonos speakers. Wisteria and roses will creep up the sides of the timber frames and of course you’re […]

Oxford Street’s New Rooftop Bar: Sisu

How does a Negroni and Old Fashioned vending machine sound to you? It sounds like a marvellous idea to us. That’s what you’re going to get at Sisu, Oxford Street’s new rooftop bar. Last year it was Notch London, the year before Roofnic and now it’s set around the idea of a utilitarian nature reserve with hints of Scandinavia. Back to the drinks. You’ll be able to buy tokens to operate a coin-operated cocktail tap so you can dispense your own Negronis and Old Fashioneds. Or, if they aren’t for you, there’ll be Camden Town Brewery beers, Caple Rd cider and […]

The Ned: 2017’s Biggest Opening

What happens when London-based Soho House & Co and New York’s Sydell Group join forces? The Ned. The Ned is what happens and it’s going to be big. Not just big but humungous. Anywhere that is going to house nine restaurants, 252 bedrooms, a club, rooftop pool, gym, spa, hamam and late night bar needs to be rather roomy, which is why it’ll be opening in the iconic former Midland Bank building – designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924. If you’re a member, then you’ll want to head to the roof as Ned’s Club Upstairs will give you […]

Bloomsbury Get its Own Beach Bar

You know the feeling; you’re sat at work, staring absentmindedly into space, thinking about how you’re going to make your millions so that you won’t have to spend the rest of your days at a desk and can instead lie on a beach? That feeling, that’s the one we’re talking about. When you can’t just jet off, all is not lost – you can still visit a beach (of sorts) in Bloomsbury as The Montague at the Gardens reopens its Beach Bar. Complete with real sand and a beach hut-style thatched roof, the Beach Bar will be opening on the 1st […]

Trawler Trash Opens in Islington

Trawler Trash is a new, Islington seafood restaurant making the most of the lesser known treasures of the sea, the fish that often get forgotten, like the old bargain CD section you use to get in Woolsworth where you’d find a gem, if you will. Just because it is the so-called ‘trash’ doesn’t mean that you won’t be served the best, they’ll only be serving fresh fish delivered that day (that’s why it’s closed on Monday as the trawler men don’t work then) except rather than ‘traditional’ catches you’ll find the likes of pilchards, coley, sprat, grey mullet and cray […]
