The Airbnb Of Food Launches In London

Uber is the world’s biggest taxi firm, but doesn’t have any taxis. Airbnb is the planet’s largest hotel chain, but doesn’t own a single hotel.

The new app launching today, aims to connect people through food, bringing together hosts and guests to enjoy all kinds of food experiences.

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.

In Fulham No One Can Hear You Screen: Beachside Cinema Opens

Life’s a beach if you live in Fulham, what with the tube and gridlock come Chelsea matches. But while it might be London’s least imaginative place to live, there’s nevertheless no shortage of fun things to do in the borough that’s not quite Chelsea, and top amongst them has to be Fulham Beach. So prepare to be transported to a Jungle Beach Paradise on the shores of a distant desert island (AKA Fulham, just next door to the concrete works). Seemingly edging away from its previous Neverland branding in a post-Michael-Jackson-being-acceptable world, Fulham Beach is now rocking a Jungle Theme […]
