London Restaurant Review: Steam & Rye

I'm always excited by a new restaurant opening, especially one   We went to sample the newly opened prohibition style, Steam and Rye in the City. A beautiful, charlston dressed host showed us through a packed bar to our table.  It is Christmas party season and at 9pm it's in full swing, with a trio of 1920s style singers on stage. the...

10 Reasons to visit Everyman Cinema (Canary Wharf)

I could describe the Everyman Cinema in Canary Wharf in one word, 'WOW', and I can easily end this article right now by simply saying, 'YOU MUST GO TO THIS CINEMA'. But a one paragraphed article wouldn't be fair to the time and effort put in place to make Everyman Cinema my new home for films. Let me instead break it down...

Restaurant Review – Mamounia Lounge: A Middle Easten Gem In the Heart of Mayfair

Along the affluent Curzon Street in Mayfair lies one of London's many Middle-Eastern haunts, Mamounia Lounge. Middle-Eastern cuisine is becoming increasingly popular amongst British diners demanding deliciously seasoned delights such as Hummus, Falafel and Baklawa so on Saturday I went to see what all the fuss is about! Upon approaching Mamounia Lounge in Mayfair you are greeted by the...

Review: LIMBO

Somewhere between rapture and damnation lies the world of LIMBO. A fantastical cosmos of fire eating, gravity defying chaos which beckons you inside with a lustful grin. LIMBO is a unique blend of circus, gig and general jaw dropping antics which leave the audience riveted and slightly perturbed. Watching supposed human beings bend themselves in half, scamper up poles and...

In our search to find the idea date location we thought we'd check out one of Central London's querkist restaurants. Sarastro in Drury Lane sits in the heart of London's theatre Land and has embraced its location fully. It's a Turkish restaurant and captures this theme with a setting taken straight from Arabian Nights. Velvet table clothes and gilt furniture gives...

Review of the Quantum of the Seas

When I found out I was going to get to stay on a massive cruise ship I was over the moon, even though I thought "isn't it going to be full of old people". After getting aboard this bad boy boat I realised my idea's of what a cruise ship was, is totally outdated. Did I have a great time? No!...

REVIEW: Foxcroft and Ginger, Whitechapel

Foxcroft & Ginger Whitechapel

London is known for taking places known as 'cheap and cheerful' and turning them 'expensive and elitist' but the Whitechapel area on the edge of Shoreditch has escaped all these tags. The main high street of Mile End Road has escaped all these tags and managed to achieve a happy medium in 'affordable and amiable'. It's still easy to...

Trade, Shoreditch

When we went down to Trade on Commercial Street we had to poke around under scaffolding to find it and that's both a pity and sneakily useful, because it really is a hidden gem. While the building work is probably going on for a bit longer (on the floors above and quite quietly) the cafe itself is a finished masterpiece....
