The Lighterman – review

The Lighterman – review

By Sophie Parkinson & Hannah Phillips Having completely shed the red-light-district vibe and fast establishing itself as London’s go-to foodie haven, Granary Square welcomed another new resident in the form of ‘pub, dining room and bar’, The Lighterman. (nb – for those who are unfamiliar, the King’s Cross restaurant hub is just a short walk north […]

Gazel at Borderline

Gazel at Borderline

Having had the privilege of listening to some of Gazel’s 2016 “Bone Key” EP before the Borderline gig, it was great to see just how well the opening number “You’ll be Mine” transferred to a live setting. If anything more atmospheric and haunting than on the recording, the sparse vocals, keyboard washes and pounding drums […]

Alligators

Alligators

Funny how fake news seems to dictate the agenda. We don’t care if what we read is true. All we want is to be entertained and engaged sympathetically to our prejudices and proclivities. If what you tell us is true – fine. If it’s not, who cares. ‘Child slaves forced to make cheap clothes on […]

Drake And The Lights – The Boy Meets World Tour Review

Drake And The Lights – The Boy Meets World Tour Review

The thought of paying £99 a ticket (+ service fees) for a concert at The O2 shocks most and I’ll admit when I saw the price I was a little taken aback myself. But having been almost three years since Drake’s last European tour I knew my money already belonged to him. Throughout the summer, […]

Bleecker Burger

Bleecker Burger

Bleecker St. is the beautiful brainchild of founder Zan Kaufman, a New Yorker who’s brought her passion for great burgers across the pond to bless the taste buds of all Londoners alike. As someone who’s a massive foodie and in particular a burger fanatic, Bleecker has been on my list of must visit restaurants for […]

Gigs, Cigs and Dating Pigs

Gigs, Cigs and Dating Pigs

It’s that time of year again. The evenings are getting darker and the only time you see daylight is during lunch-break. Or those one too many cigarette/Tinder breaks you keep promising yourself you’ll cut back on. Austerity, sanity and all that. Roof terraces are no longer a viable date option and boozy picnics are definitely […]

Dirty Martini

Dirty Martini

We don’t usually cover corporate events, so we won’t excite you with details of the fibre-optic tech conference at Excel. Yada yada. But we will tell you this: Dirty Martini have recently opened in Minories. And the cocktails are jolly delightful – they ace the classic martini, but did you know that they also smash […]

London Zoo – a family day out!

London Zoo – a family day out!

By Sophie Parkinson Taking the kids to ZSL, London Zoo this summer is the perfect excuse to go and see the cuddly new-born Sumatran tiger cubs. As two of the world’s rarest tigers this is an opportunity not to be missed – they grow up so fast (as we know so well know from watching […]

Disaronno Sour cocktail hour

Disaronno Sour cocktail hour

By Sophie Parkinson Last night was all about the ‘gram. The perfect sunset and idyllic view from the roof garden at Ace Hotel, Shoreditch, made for a beautiful backdrop for Disaronno’s sour hour. Big names on insta (Danielle Peazer & Eleanor Calder) worked their newest hashtags to the beat of DJ Maya Jama as we […]
