That time of year is fast approaching. By that time of year, I am alluding to V Day, the big Valentines. The one day of the year when everyone is expected to be on a date. If you’re not in a relationship / marriage / convent and haven’t started cuffing then you need to get on that ASAP in order to find the one (or someone) for V Day. Once they are well and truly cuffed, you then need to work out where you’re going to go. That’s where we come in. We have devised the ultimate guide of date […]
I know we spend most of our evenings out tasting and drinking for your enjoyment, but somehow we also seem to find enough moments to binge watch entire seasons of mediocre to good telly. Here’s what we’ve been watching this month… Editor Emily‘s Watching: Ordeal by Innocence Sarah Philips’ take on Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence was already surrounded by drama before it even aired, with the team having to reshoot all the scenes including Ed Westwick following allegations of sexual assault. So, when it did hit our screens this Easter rather than the usual Christmas slot, there was even more […]
Remember when you’d spend rainy Saturday afternoons colouring in, making things and watching Art Attack? There’s something so satisfying about making something and whilst Neil Buchanan might have moved on from the painting (he’s now in a heavy metal band, would you believe?) we are all still for crafts. In fact, there is a whole week dedicated to it, London Craft Week will be returning from the 9th – 13th May 2018 and to celebrate, Mondrian London will be hosting a series of workshops and talks to encourage us to release our inner artists and creative minds. Taking place in […]
Are you a feisty, strong, badass woman? If so then coincidence would have it that there’s a supper club on the lookout for ‘feisty, strong, badass women’. Today’s your lucky day. Feisty Feast is all about bringing women together through a combination of atmospheric venues, powerful guest speakers, and, most importantly, ‘divine feasting’. It’s an import from Canada, courtesy of Julia Khan Anselmo, a native of Vancouver who founded Feisty Feast back in 2013. Since then it’s become an international community of women supporting and celebrating each another with 13 previous events taking place in Canada and West Coast USA, with the […]
There’s a new luxury hotel coming to Albert Embankment, with 142 bedrooms, six suites and a new rooftop bar and restaurant: Mezemiso. And whilst it might be grey and rainy now, there will be a time when the sun will shine (yes, it is hard to believe) and when it is this is going to be our first pit stop. Reflecting the skyline, Mezemiso will bring together blue hues and copper and metallic tones whilst floor to ceiling windows will allow guests, to see said London skyline from fourteen floors up. Serving up a Lebanese menu, the restaurant will feature […]
Like wings? Then you need to get yourself down to London Wing Fest, which is back in August and it’s bigger and better than ever. Taking place on the 4th and 5th August, the festival has quintupled in the last five years, going from 7 stalls when it first started, to this year having 35 stalls and space for 10,000 attendees – that’s a lot of chicken to eat. You’ll want to come hungry anyway so that you can demolish and win the wing-eating battles. The 35 traders will also be battling it out to win titles such as the […]
The mini heat wave might seem like a distant memory, but one day the sun will return and when it does we’ll be flocking to The Gardening Society at John Lewis, which has had rather a makeover. Inspired by Londoner’s love of music and sound, the space has had a refurbishment and is relaunching for the summer with immersive studio spaces curated by Sono, Ruark Audio and Naim, which you’ll be able to book out over the summer. Opening on Saturday 5th May, Summer of Sound on the Roof will kick off with live performances from Daudi Matsiko and Slow […]
It started so well, this week, with clear blue skies and hot-hot-hot heat. But it’s increasingly looking like it’s going to trail off into a drizzle of grey and gloom. Nevertheless, a weekend’s a weekend so let’s make the most of it, and here are some suggestions to get you through.
Forget magnetic hoverbusses or electric jetpacks, one day we’ll all get everywhere via zip line, I’m convinced of it. Imagine the scene, boarding a lift to the top of the zip line station in, say, Putney, strapping in, then a 15 minute straight adrenaline-filled ‘zip’ all the way to Canary Wharf, briefcase flailing in your hand. I’m sure it’s the future, I’ve written to Sadiq and everything, though strangely I’ve not heard back. But it turns out I’m not the only person obsessed with zip lines, and it seems another group are way ahead of me. Welcome back Zip Now London, incredibly the […]
From Romans and Greeks preserving flowers to study them, to Victorians bringing the beauty of outdoors indoors and girls keeping flowers from suitors in the pages of books, there’s something rather whimsical and wonderful about pressing flowers and as part of Chelsea Flower Show, Pullman London St Pancras will be hosting flower pressing workshops. The free workshops include botanical cocktails, canapés and London-based artist Anna Garforth will teach you how to press flowers and give tips about how to forage for flowers in some of London’s best wild spots. It’s a chance to learn something new and embrace a gentler, […]
The ‘safari dinner’ concept, where diners move from location to location between courses just moved up a gear. Rather than traipsing between your friends’ kitchens, sampling a cottage pie here and a dodgy crumble there, Action Against Hunger have launched nationwide Moveable Feasts, enrolling some of the UK’s leading restaurants and restauranteurs. The result is both worthy AND tasty and this May it comes to Mayfair. The Moveable Feast has already circulated round Liverpool, Leeds, Soho and The City. Guests attend a drinks reception before rotating round four leading restaurants munching their way through a different course at each venue. The […]
