A Pre-Work Dance Party Comes to West London

Wake up. Hit the snooze button (x3). Feel guilty about skipping the gym. Sound familiar? Us too. Running or cycling or lifting weights facing a white wall can just get so boring. That combined with the comfort and warmth of our beds just makes it really difficult to get out the front door in the morning. But there’s this phenomena that has taken over New York and East London; it goes by the name of Daybreaker and is a pre-work (sober) dance party now making it’s way to West London. Still, getting up early for a dance party sounds like hard work. […]

The Sell-Out Cadbury Creme Egg Café is Back

There’s just something about a pop-up that has us manically checking our diary, clearing whatever is interfering and heading over there before it vanishes as quickly as it appeared – and this is no different. Cadbury have announced the return of the ridiculously popular Creme Egg Cafe, but this time there is a twist. Coinciding with the appearance of Creme Eggs in a shop near you and their new ‘hunting season’ adverts, it’s only fitting that the pop-up is coming in the form of a hunting lodge. The lodge will start off at the London Eye on the 27th January […]

12 Cheap and Cheerful Ways to Survive Blue Monday

Blue Monday: supposedly the most depressing day of the year. It’s the third week of January, we are back in the full swing of work, have no holidays booked for months, our glasses are dry and our bank accounts are too. Ok, ok, perhaps we’re wallowing too much – it’s not that bad. Especially when we have free pizza, free prosecco, free flowers, free massages, free comedy and free gin to get us through. Happy Monday!

The World’s Best Bar Begins its London Residency

As part of their Club Residencies project, The Bloomsbury Club Bar welcome BlackTail, the critically acclaimed NYC bar from the team behind The Dead Rabbit (officially named The World’s Best Bar). BlackTail itself evokes Prohibition era bars in Havana, with it’s name referring Aeromarine Airways, which helped give temporary respite to Americans from their booze-less land. Well, legal booze anyway. While drinks are inspired by Prohibition, they have been refined using modern techniques and for modern tastes. Their inventive menu will certainly bring a taste of New York (and Havana) to London, offering four of BlackTail’s most popular drinks as […]

Chi Kitchen’s Special ‘Tai Chi’ menu

A Tai Chi menu at a restaurant? No, it is not a list of Tai Chi moves to choose from, but a menu of healthy Asian dishes. The menu has been created by Executive Chef Ping Coombes, of Masterchef fame, aiming to embrace the philosophy of Tai Chi in food form. The menu promotes health, wellbeing and most importantly, balance – much like Tai Chi. So to balance out the healthy chicken and Chinese herb soup with goji berries, enjoy a deep fried tuna and avocado sushi roll. Or to balance out the quinoa salad with cucumber, cherry tomato, egg, […]

A World First: The Cafe Taking Exercise as Payment

Let’s face it, it takes a special breed of person to not want some kind of reward after exercise. Be it a protein shake, bubble bath or burger (yep, we said it), it’s nothing new that rewards improve motivation and quite frankly, the bigger the reward the harder we’ll work. Although physical and psychological benefits of exercise should be enough on their own, in January when we are cold and broke we need a little more. Introducing the (world’s first) cafe that takes exercise as payment. Yes you heard it; punch for your lunch or run for your bun, however […]
