Palomar’s Founders Strike Again!

First it was Palomar and The Barbary, two of London’s most sought-after restaurants, then earlier this year Zoë and Layo Paskin launched Jacob the Angel, the hit coffee spot in Seven Dials, and now the brother and sister duo are back with their latest offering. Before there was Uber there were blue posts. The painted posts in the street acted as a symbol to passers-by that sedan chairs operated from that spot, all you had to do was hail a chair and be carried aloft to your desired destination, which was probably one of the reputable-or-not pubs around Soho. Today […]

Racketeer Opens In King’s Cross

The Saffron Hill mob were an infamous pickpocket gang who terrorised East London. Their tactic of choice was to create a commotion, or a racket, to distract would-be victims, then rob them blind. Hence the word: racketeer. Thankfully the newly opened Victorian cocktail bar The Racketeer, named in reference to the group, gives far more than it takes and we can’t wait to head down to check it out. The Clerkenwell boozer of a pub has been painstakingly restored to its Victorian glory, with original tiling on the floors and walls throughout and an elegant and historical bar has emerged. The […]

The Return of The Clifton

Once the haunt of King Edward VII and his mistress, Lillie Langtry, The Clifton in St John’s Wood is reopening next week after its unexpected closure in 2013. We can’t report that there’ll be any royals necessarily, but we can tell you that it sounds like it’s going to be cracking. Back in 2007, brothers Ben and Ed Robson started running the first pub they ever drank in, The Horseshoe in Hampstead, nonchalant, this was followed by their successful Prosecco and schnitzel bar, Boopshi’s in Fitzrovia and now, they are going to be giving The Clifton a new lease of […]

Following on from the success of The Italian Job in Chiswick and their craft beer shack at Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant & Castle, the team are set to open their third venture and this time it’s coming to Notting Hill. Unlike their first two venues, on the second floor you’ll find an eclectic cocktail bar; Salotto ‘900. They’ve enlisted the drinks guru, Luca Corradini of Oriole and The Savoy’s American Bar to create a series of classic cocktails with a modern twist. There’s the Botanico which fuses Tanqueray Gin and pine liqueur and The Inventor – a mixture of Plantation 3 […]

The Ned: 2017’s Biggest Opening

What happens when London-based Soho House & Co and New York’s Sydell Group join forces? The Ned. The Ned is what happens and it’s going to be big. Not just big but humungous. Anywhere that is going to house nine restaurants, 252 bedrooms, a club, rooftop pool, gym, spa, hamam and late night bar needs to be rather roomy, which is why it’ll be opening in the iconic former Midland Bank building – designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924. If you’re a member, then you’ll want to head to the roof as Ned’s Club Upstairs will give you […]

The Game Bird to Open at The Stafford

A new year, a new beginning, a phrase we’re all sure to be bored of by the end of the first week of January. There is one new beginning that we are definitely interested in though, The Stafford’s. In early 2017 they will be relaunching their restaurant under Executive Chef James Durrant. Recently appointed at The Stafford, James has over 20 years’ experience at Michelin-starred restaurants including Gordon Ramsay’s Royal Hospital Road and Claridge’s. He opened The Plough Inn in Longparish in 2010 and then having been awarded a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand, his main course was chosen for the […]

The Kitty Hawk: Department Store of Dining

Today sees the opening of The Kitty Hawk – the first venture from the Wright & Bell group, a new restaurant which is being labelled as a department store of dining. Why? Because it has everything you need right one under one roof. Clever. Start the day with breakfast at the coffee bar and patisserie or head there for lunch whilst catching up on some work. In the evening, the space will transform into a wine bar; there’ll be light bites, cocktails and craft ales and flatbreads served next to the open kitchen. Downstairs the restaurant will offer fine dining, […]
