Tapas Revolution Shoreditch Bar

Tapas Revolution, Shoreditch

Published on April 17th, 2015 | by Gavin

Follows the success of branches in Westfield Shepherds Bush and Bluewater, they have decided to branch out from busy shopping centres to Bethnal Green Road, a short walk from Shoreditch High St overground station. Tapas Revolution is owned by 28 year old chef Omar Allibhoy, a proud Madrileño know to Spaniards as “the crusader” with the sole purpose of bringing the best tapas to ‘the people’. How do I know this? There’s a mural of Che Guevara emblazed on the website, but upon closer inspection, it’s actually Omar (or possibly a modern day depiction of Jesus, I forgot to ask). The restaurant is spacious, bright and friendly, a well thought ... Read More

VII Hills Gin

Published on April 16th, 2015 | by Gavin

The tagline “Crafted in England, Designed in Italy” sums up VII (seven) Hills Gin perfectly. Pride and passion go into every bottle of this spirit, and it’s all down to its Italian roots. VII Hills was created in 2014 by Italian bartenders Danilo Tersigni, Filippo Previero and Francesco Medici who all happen to work in Mayfair speakeasy Mr Fogg’s. If that wasn’t Italian enough for you, all twelve botanicals have been sourced from the motherland, and the name is based on the seven hills that Rome was built on. Not only that, it’s also the first 100% Italian London Dry on the market The bottle too is classic Roman Empire. ... Read More

Sky Garden

Darwin @ Sky Garden

Published on April 15th, 2015 | by Sophia Longhi

Move over Shard, there’s a new view in town. Around about now, you might just be able to get a booking for the hotly anticipated Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch Street’s garden in the sky – ‘London’s highest public garden’. But far better to team your view with some cocktails and some dinner in one of their highrise restaurants – either the rather fine-looking Fenchurch Seafood Bar and Grill or the more informal, but nevertheless enticing, Darwin Brasserie. There’s certainly an air of excitement upon entering 20 Fenchurch Street, or the Walkie-Talkie, as it is colloquially known. It’s something to do with the glossy, sterilised sheen of the white lobby and ... Read More

Psychic Burger

Psychic Burger @ The Victoria, Dalston

Published on April 14th, 2015 | by Lumy George

East London has been and continues to be a hot bed of expression, creativity and in recent years, some of London’s most exciting new eateries. Those familiar with the area I’m sure will have heard of or come across the iconic public house The Victoria. Located on Queensbridge road, The Victoria’s reputation of great live music, coupled with a vibrant welcoming atmosphere has made it a regular hang out for some of east London’s finest. With all these great things going for it, I’m sure your wondering how such could be elevated. Enter the wacky yet wonderful world of ‘Psychic burger’ that has teamed up with ‘The Victoria’ to provide ... Read More

Summer Workouts

Tatei’s Top Summer Body Workouts

Published on April 13th, 2015 | by Tatei Montejo

Running on a treadmill with no motivation other than completing the 20 minutes you set out to do so you can stop watching 1D music videos on the gym’s TV screens is not my idea of fun. Wandering around waiting for a machine to free up, only to find out it’s all sweaty and someone’s warmed up the seat for you isn’t either. Then again, I really wish it was, because my activities of choice do very little towards achieving a bikini body and the summer’s just around the corner. This is why I embarked on a mission to find fitness alternatives in London that would deliver results but didn’t ... Read More

snaps and rye

Snaps and Rye, Notting Hill

Published on April 9th, 2015 | by Sophia Longhi

You wouldn’t believe it’s on this street. Not that this street is unsavoury or anything like that; in fact, it is brimming with that eclectic, eccentric charm that Notting Hill does so well. But this is smart. This is neat. This is functional. This is Scandi. And it really is. It’s like a breath of clean air when you walk into Snaps and Rye, with its minimalistic interior, all light wood, white walls, lake-blue touches and large glass frontage, which floods the space with plenty of natural light. I can see the selection of smørrebrød behind the glass counter – organic rye topped with piles of colourful salad, fish, veg, ... Read More

Las-Iguanas Old Spitalfields market

Las Iguanas, Spitalfields

Published on April 7th, 2015 | by Gavin

Large chains aren’t usually discussed in any great detail at I’m A Londoner HQ, but with a recent focus on Brazil, carnival, and cachaca with the Rio Olympics only a year away, one of Britain’s largest Brazilian themed restaurant’s Las Iguanas has become a lot more relevant. I happen to take a trip to their flagship Old Spitalfields Market branch (one of five in London) during the Rio carnival and stumble in on two ladies in carnival mode, samba dancing away in full feather clad costumewear- if only I received such a welcome everywhere I go! The open plan restaurant is set over two floors, a party bar on the ... Read More

Hotel Chocolat London Eye Tasting Experience

Published on April 6th, 2015 | by Rebecca Anne Milford

Apparently chocolate and prosecco go very, very well together – well, that’s what we’ve just been told by our Hotel Chocolat guide, Bethany. Phew, don’t hear us complaining as we take a bite of luscious 70% dark chocolate and follow this with a swig of bubbles. In fact, what could be better than a chocolate tasting experience, learning about this sweet treat, while sipping on fizz? How about enjoying all this while also taking in the breathtaking 360 degree views of London, high up in the London Eye. Throughout April, Hotel Chocolat are hosting fabulous opportunities to participate in a tasting experience of a variety of chocolates and truffles, washed ... Read More

FryHard Creme Egg Boxpark

FryHard, Shoreditch

Published on April 2nd, 2015 | by Gavin

DEEP FRIED EVERYTHING. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, however I’d be willing to risk the health issues for London’s latest pop up #FryHard. From today until Easter Sunday, Shoreditch Boxpark welcomes a pop up dedicated to deep frying anything you can get your hands on; we’re talking crème eggs and chocolate cake, to quiches and full Sunday roasts.   Created by Mess Head (Jim ‘Mess Chef’ Thomlinson and Emma ‘Miss Cakehead’ Thomas), Fry Hard sticks two fingers up at “the man” for making us feel guilty for eating anything with more than 0.1g of saturated fat, and they’ve done it in typically brash style.  Despite my ...
