Upon first reading about this next electronic music venue, I thought when it said wasteland it was nodding to a land populated by people who’d had one drink too many. However, a closer scroll led me to the understanding that it’s actually a studio above a print factory on an industrial estate. There’s definitely something about electronic music that goes hand in hand with slightly eerie looking, derelict buildings. Sorry, I’m not really painting FOLD to you in the most appetising light, but it does actually look seriously cool (not as cool as me though, using the phrase “seriously cool”). […]
London’s clubs are going through a bit of a rocky patch – you’ve got the iconic South Kensington club that’s set to become a fast food joint, you’ve got exclusive Mayfair clubs dropping like flies and even The Handbook’s favourite ski chalet inspired haunt has bid us farewell. In this tumultuous time there is one club that is going strong, so strong that it’s opening a second club; that club is Mahiki and its tiki torch is burning bright. This time the co-founders of private members’ club, Albert’s: Jake Parkinson Smith, Fraser Carruthers and Carlo Carello have joined forces as […]
Founded in 1963, Annabel’s is arguably one of the most elegant private clubs in London. Its guests have included royalty, Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elizabeth Taylor and Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s notoriously difficult to get membership with new members requiring a proposer, a seconder and an election by Committee – you’re not just walking in. It’s this exclusivity and mystery that has kept Annabel’s reputation as one of the most sought after clubs for the last fifty years, but now things are changing. This year they are going to be moving and reopening its doors to its much-anticipated […]
Number 90 Bar & Kitchen in Hackney Wick is getting a sister site today as Bruno Cabral, founder of The Number Group, opens Number 177 Bar & Kitchen in Hoxton. It too will be a mix of music, art and food (three of the finest things in life), with a German edge to it. It’ll be taking inspiration from Berlin’s bar scene, although we assume it will be easier to get into than Berghain… It’s going to be big; there’ll be space for 350 of us and a sliding wall covered in graffiti will divide the main restaurant and bar […]
Since it opened back in 1993, The Garage in Islington has been one of London’s most loved live music venues hosting the likes of Radiohead, Lil Yachty, Bring Me the Horizon and Red Hot Chilli Peppers. You might have noticed things have been changing over there, well now it’s been taken over, refurbished and it’s almost ready for business once more. Now owned by the DHP Family (Oslo, Hackney and Rock City, Nottingham) The Garage will not only be a legendary music venue once more, but during the day you can stop in for coffee, craft beer and cocktails. The […]
