68 and Boston Opens

There are 67 wine producing nations in the world, but the one place you need to go to, is Soho’s 68 & Boston. Brought to you by Eric Yu of The Breakfast Group (Opium and The Social), Martin Malley co-owner of Planet of the Grapes and Luca Cordiglieri the former bar manager at China Tang at The Dorchester, 68 & Boston will feature a wine bar downstairs and a cocktail bar upstairs.

Bottomless Suppers at The Exhibit

First came the bottomless brunch. Then came another bottomless brunch. And then another. And another… (Another). We never complain when our fourth prosecco is placed in front of us but emerging into the real world at midday and realising you really should have saved the drinking for that evening isn’t always the makings of a productive Saturday. Imagine the next time you have a bottomless meal you walk out into the street and it is actually an acceptable hour to be tipsy. Enter Bottomless Suppers at The Exhibit. The Balham restaurant is launching for winter their new Free-Flow Suppers, every […]

Cocktail Experience at Mr. Fogg’s

Pushing aside the velvet curtain at Mr. Fogg’s you half expect the (fictional) man himself to be perched at the bar, cocktail in one hand, twirling his moustache with the other. On 9th October, for one night only, the Englishman will welcome the Italianman to his Mayfair residency for a cocktail experience hosted by world renowned Italian mixologist Diego Ferrari. Mr. Fogg’s has gained itself a reputation for providing adventurous Londoner’s with something a little different. A refreshing change from the city’s slick, glitzy bars, walking into Mr. Fogg’s feels like entering another world; a salon of secrets from a […]

The Bowler opens

So this weather isn’t exactly ideal is it? The Indian summer has definitely disappeared as quickly as arrived. It’s the sort of weather that makes us want to stay inside with a big bowl of comfort food. Well it seems like our food prayers have been answered because tomorrow sees the opening of The Bowler. Setting up shop on Monmouth Street, The Bowler is a meatball shop run by Jez Felwick, the guy behind who sells meatballs at festivals  from his van The Lawn Ranger and owners of Polpo, Russell Norman and Richard Beatty – you could call them meatball […]

The Blues Kitchen Brixton

BBQ, bourbon, blues and Brixton ah we love a bit of alliteration. We also love the fact that The Blues Kitchen is heading over to Brixton this autumn with the opening of their third restaurant. Connoisseurs of all things BBQ they’ve perfected their techniques with various trips to Texas, Louisiana and Tennessee – they know all about spice rubs, smoke times and American woods and now they’re bringing their knowledge and USDA beef from Texas to South London. They say this is their best menu yet, with classic 12 hour smoked brisket will be served alongside burnt ends and fall-off-the-bone […]

Comedy Meets Music at Scarfes Bar

Whether we like to admit it or not, listening to “I Can’t Make You Love Me” after a break up may trigger a little tear. OK, fine, many tears. Music can make you feel many things but we’ve got to say you’d be a little weird to admit it has ever made you laugh. If you think about it, comedy and music would really be quite a good pairing. Throw a glamorous hotel bar into the mix and you have yourself Comedy Notes at Scarfes Bar; the first musical comedy night in the UK hosted and founded by TV comedienne […]

Circus Themed Bar at London Cocktail Week

Trapeze artists, flame blowers, dancing elephants, dead parrots… Err, OK, all but the latter conjure up images of the magical world of the circus but bear with us and we can add dead parrots to your train of thought. For the past six months, Scotch whisky brand Monkey Shoulder have been intensively whittling down teams of cocktail experts during a variety of whisky-related (and some not-so-whisky-related) challenges for the title of Ultimate Bartender Champion. As part of their prize the winners, Dead Parrot, are hosting a circus-themed bar at London Cocktail Week, free for all to attend. As with all […]

London Restaurant Festival Comes to Town

As the evenings get shorter we love to put our pajamas on as soon as we walk through the door in the evening. Whack on the kettle and heat up a big bowl of soup and we’re going nowhere fast.  London Restaurant Festival is making us re-evaluate what it is exactly about eating out which is so great. Trying amazing food we wouldn’t be able to cook ourselves is a huge part of it but there’s also the social side of it – the buzz in a restaurant as everyone oohs and aahs over their meals, whips out their phone […]
