If you love fun but hate leaving East London, you’ll be pleased to know that the legends behind Northcote Records and Venn St Records have finally hopped across London to open Old St Records! I went along to the launch party to check it out.
Anyone who follows my blog or social channels will know that I am a big fan of Dead Dolls House. As a result, they invited me to their Peckham branch which has just reopened as The Clayton Arms. What do you get when you douse a cosy South East London pub in the unique Dead Dolls charm? Here’s the verdict.
The House of Peroni, a pop up which graces our presence twice each year, is back on Brick Lane for one month only! I went along to the opening party to see what was on offer. Here’s the verdict.
Just as the weather decided to hot up I decided to cool down and head to the ICEBAR London. It is London’s only permanent ice bar and each year unveils a new design, crafted by ice artist Jens Thoms Ivarsson. They have just launched their new theme – Frozen Foods! I went with two of my gurls to see how cool it really is. Here’s the verdict.
A Martini is one of those drinks that looks wonderfully sophisticated. So wonderfully sophisticated that I decided to order one at a cocktail bar once upon a time, so everyone could see how wonderfully sophisticated I was. Not sophisticated enough, however, to know what was actually in a (dry Gin) Martini…needless to say, I ordered a lemonade and stealthily poured the Martini in.
Thankfully, our friends at Ghergich & Co. and FIX have produced this useful infographic so that you don’t have to go through the same trauma as I did, and you can even make your own Martini at home to check you like them before ordering them at Dirty Martini.
