Madame D's Shoreditch - London Restaurant Review

Madame D's Shoreditch - London Restaurant Review

My worst ever press night was held at number 76 Commercial St. Needless to say, my face was a picture of pure joy as the penny dropped, and I realised that this was where Gunpowder’s younger sibling, Madame D, resided. With memories of pent up rage simmering away from my last visit, I put my best…

Demon, Wise and Partners - London Bar Review

Demon, Wise and Partners - London Bar Review

Yeah, it’s summer. And yeah, I should be out soaking up some vitamin D at any given opportunity, but despite your common beliefs, summer in London isn’t all about rooftops and al fresco drinking. There are some buzzing basement bars with heavenly air conditioning and killer cocktails, and…

The Piano Works - London Brunch Review

The Piano Works - London Brunch Review

The Piano Works is one of London’s best live music venues, and in February of this year they decided to get stuck into the city’s unstoppable bottomless brunch trend. Offering both standard and something a little bit different dishes, I trotted towards Farringdon to experience it, and all…

Chi Kitchen - London Restaurant Review

Chi Kitchen - London Restaurant Review

Angrily pacing Oxford Street in search of somewhere to throw down your Primark purchases and tuck into wholesome food - it's okay, we’ve all been there. Chi Kitchen is tucked away down the side of Debenhams, and I visited midweek (minus some shopping bags) to see if it could compete with my reliable…

Duck and Waffle Local - London Restaurant Review

Duck and Waffle Local - London Restaurant Review

There’s no point in sugar coating it. I f***ing love awful puns. You know the ones I’m talking about - the type that encourage eye rolling followed by the often insensitive comment of ‘really?’. Although this review is a golden opportunity to revel in such things, being the new…

The Pearson Room - London Restaurant Review

The Pearson Room - London Restaurant Review

Getting lost seems to be my forte these days. The Pearson Room is a couple of minute’s stroll from Canary Wharf station, but I somehow managed to make the journey there an excruciatingly long one. With one hangry brother from across the pond by my side, I ventured to the restaurant and promised…

Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings - London Restaurant Review

Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings - London Restaurant Review

I hold my hands up, I’m a sucker for anywhere Instagram-worthy. After many mentions of Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings in the office and in general chit chat, I took me, my best friend and my cracked iPhone 6s on a journey toward Islington to check out what is rumoured to be London’s prettiest…

The Refinery CityPoint - London Restaurant Review

The Refinery CityPoint - London Restaurant Review

Drake and Morgan has been around for the guts of 10 years, and with two more ventures planned for 2017, its empire is showing no signs of slowing down. With this news fresh off the press, I decided that it was time to take a long over due trip to one of its venues. Cue: The Refinery CityPoint. The Venue…

Encant Covent Garden - London Bar Review

Encant Covent Garden - London Bar Review

I took a trip to Encant last week and it’s made me question a lot of things. One: why the hell has it taken me this long to put quail in my mouth? Two: how can it be that somewhere so tinsie could espouse more charm in three hours than my ex boyfriend of two years? The Venue and Atmosphere Nestled…

Dandelyan Waterloo - London Bar Review

Dandelyan Waterloo - London Bar Review

I hate to be the one to deliver bad news, but White Lyan in Hoxton will close its doors forever in April. Before you start hysterically sobbing at the thought of never having whale sperm cocktails again (yes, these actually exist), take solace in the fact that you can still revel in Mr Lyan&rsquo…

Cocktails in the City Instagram Takeover

Cocktails in the City Instagram Takeover

Cocktails in the City is coming to London between 30th March to 1st April 2017. Cocktail connoisseurs see Cocktails in the City as one of the biggest events in their social calendar, and for bloody good reason. Travelling and spreading joy around no less than seven UK cities, CITC’s first event…

Bo Drake - London Restaurant Review

Bo Drake - London Restaurant Review

One of my favourite restaurants is in Soho. I love the food and the staff here so much that I tell very few about it in fear of queues forming outside its discreet door. With this eatery scored on my heart forever more, Bo Drake, that’s located on Greek Street, had a tough road ahead to win and…
