Bourne & Hollingsworth’s Midnight Ball

If you want to start 2016 with a little more decadence than usual and you don’t want to be stuck in the cold with all the drunk revellers queuing for the club then we have just the party for you. The latest soiree from party aficionados Bourne and Hollingsworth is The Midnight Ball. A magical...

Top Heated Terraces

As much as we love our city’s weird and wonderful pubs and boozers, just because it’s now bitterly cold outside doesn’t mean that you have to curl up in some stuffy public house for drinks this Christmas. For an al fresco night of inebriation, make a beeline for one of London’s heated...

Dogtown Vs Slap & Pickle Food Battle

We don’t like fighting, it’s not really our scene unless, that is, it’s an epic battle, a fight worth our time… in short, a food fight. Not the sort of fight though that you picture happening in school canteens where somewhere throws some chips and then someone lobs a yoghurt back (did...

Vanilla Black Cookery Day School

If you’re vegetarian in most restaurants you’d be lucky to have half the number of dishes to choose from that carnivores do – bonus points if mushroom risotto doesn’t appear. Whilst we love a good steak and on a winter’s night a beef casserole is very hard to beat, we also think that...
