101 London Date Ideas: The Ultimate Guide to Dating in the City

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 […]

A D&G Christmas at Claridge’s

I don’t know about you, but in my family decorating the Christmas tree officially marks the beginning of the festive season. The same scenario happens each year, we sit down surrounded by Christmas baubles and my mother says, “Let’s try and make it spectacular this year!” Whilst the tinsel has disappeared and the knitted angels have been removed altogether, as much as I hate to admit it, our Christmas Tree still manages to look a lopsided mess- but it is our lopsided mess. Whilst family trees are often a masterpiece in themselves, it is the decorated trees scattered all over […]

Selin Kiazim at Carousel

You must have heard about Carousel by now… if not shame on you. Situated in Marylebone it’s the brainchild of Shuttlecock Inc, a permanent pop-up, where chefs and groups take up residencies to show off their menus and skills to Londoners alongside, performances and music. And now it is the turn of Selin Kiazim, who takes up the reins following on from the likes of Javier Rodriguez, Giorgio Locatelli and Paris Pop-Up. Since her 6 month residency at Trip Kitchen, Londoners  have been lusting over Selin’s Turkis- Cypriot influenced food, and her residency which launches today can’t come soon enough, […]

The Wild Game Co. Pop-Up

Meat lovers across the capital rejoice as The Wild Game Co. launches its very first stand-alone pop-up dining experience in the foodie’s paradise that is Charlotte Street, and its surrounding area. When it comes to wild game and venison, The Wild Game Co. are about as authentic as it gets; founded by Scotsman Andy Waugh, all their meat is directly sourced from the Scottish Highlands before being, to put it delicately – ‘prepared’ – by his family’s game-butchering business. Andy and his clan of ‘kilt-wearing chefs’ have been making quite the impression on the London dining scene since their beginning […]

The Little Yellow Door

Let’s be honest, as much as we love a good night out, it is pretty difficult to top a great house party. There is just something about these wild affairs that you wouldn’t find on your average night out and whilst the flat party we have in mind is probably more Made in Chelsea than Skins, that does not reduce it standing as a great affair. For this reason alone, we were delighted to hear about The Little Yellow Door, a party pop-up that is descending onto Notting Hill Gate promising weekly dinners and drinks that will be difficult to […]

Capturing Kings Cross with Foto Ruta

2014 was officially coined ‘the year of the selfie’ but this looks set to change with the Fota Ruta Clue, a photographic pop-up that seeks to celebrate one of most polarising and evolving neighbourhoods in London: Kings Cross. Based at the St. Pancras Hotel, the camera will be turned on its head, capturing the sights of the city and using photography to engage people with their surroundings in a sociable and creative way. Now, we know that Kings Cross is often seen as a commuter hub, a stop on a journey rather than the final destination, but Foto Ruta hope […]

London Cocktail Week: Cuervo’s Hacienda

Prior to my evening at the Cuervo’s Hacienda at The Hoxton, I had always associated tequila with hot summers and the beach but I am pleased to say that on this occasion I was proved entirely wrong. Whilst the opening of London Cocktail Week saw a severe drop in temperature, the heat at The Hoxton was palpable with two tequila based cocktails in particular filling the cold spot excellently. In aid of the winter months which as much as we hate to admit are slowly but surely becoming a reality, I was delighted to try the Autumnal Tradicional Sour Margarita […]

The Halloween Ball in WC2

Halloween: the most terrifying night of the year. However, we cannot help but notice in recent years, this holiday (can we call it a holiday), has not been all that scary, What’s more, it is so easy to get wrong and if interpreted incorrectly can end up being cheesier than One Direction and 5 Days of Summer combined. Yes, in the past few years, Halloween has not lived up to its reputation, with blatant attempts of horror and hideous excuses for costumes (adding cat ears is not a costume) taking all the allure out of the evening. What the evening […]

Shaken Not Stirred: Artistic Cocktails at Mark’s Bar

Since the launch of Hixter Bankside earlier this summer, Mark Hix has drawn on the restaurant’s artistic setting to revolutionise not only British dining, but also British art- combining the two to make what we think is an agreeable mix. His latest venture ‘Mark’s Bar’, situated in the artistic basement below Hixter Bankside is no different with a selection of new cocktails that will get any art enthusiast’s tongue wagging. To celebrate Frieze London, Hix has invited a collection of Britain’s most popular contemporary artists such as Tim Noble, Gary Webb and Pauline Amos to his artist studio and asked […]
