Fulham Really is the Place to be as The Little Blue Door Opens

The Little Yellow Door was how we all imagine living in London was going to be, one long party, with plenty of drinks, no tidying up and a Notting Hill postcode to match. But just like when your favourite housemate leaves and suddenly everything falls apart, The Little Yellow Door has now closed its door and had their locks changed. The flatmates have moved on, getting their own places in different areas and the first flatmate has set up shop in Fulham, with The Little Blue Door. A new home which will act as a late-night neighbourhood bar and restaurant, […]

DND: The City’s New Speakeasy

Ziegfeld Follies: a series of Broadway and Vaudeville shows in early twentieth century New York. The follies were famous for their troupe of beautiful, slightly risque, chorus girls, known as Ziegfeld girls. Wearing elaborate costumes they “paraded up and down flights of stairs as anything from birds to battleships”. It’s this inspiration that the new bar, DND, hidden under the Vintry & Mercer hotel will take to bring the speakeasy style bar to life when it opens its doors in spring. With pictures of iconic Ziegfeld girls on the walls, the century-old images will look kindly on the retro glamour […]
