A Wine Tasting Flight at Skylon on the Southbank with Truly Experiences

Floor to ceiling windows frame a Spring’s Friday afternoon on the Southbank, mirrored tables reflecting the decorative foliage, extravagant floral arrangements and 1950’s inspired copper birdcages. Skylon, on the first floor of the Royal Festival Hall, oozes Gatsby-esque decadence and a swoon-worthy Gin menu fused with modern high ceilings and crisp white walls.

Celebrating Thai New Year at the Mango Tree, SW1

It can be very difficult to find good Thai food in London that doesn’t come with the stereotypical kitschy or somewhat ‘rustic’ decor associated with authentic Asian restaurants. Equally, it can be all the more tricky to find somewhere that offers a polished and contemporary dining experience and doesn’t compromise on the authenticity of the menu.

The Ultimate Date Night: Pizza Making Classes at Bungatini, WC2

Nestled on Drury Lane in the heart of the Westend, BungaTINI is the little baby brother of the much loved Italian mini-chain, Bunga Bunga and the brains behind the hottest new way to spend a Tuesday evening in Covent Garden. Their pizza making classes take you from the humble beginnings of this Italian peasantry staple through to dough making, pizza tossing and – of course – plenty of face-stuffing. I went along to their press preview last week to see exactly how much mozzarella it is humanly possible to fit on one pizza…

Indian Feasting at Gaylord, W1

When you first think of Indian food in London, what comes to mind? It’s probably not crisp white table linen, fragrant sparkling wine and fine dining. And yet if you venture down to Gaylord’s on Mortimer Street, Fitzrovia, that’s exactly what you’ll find. Founded in London in 1966 following the success of it’s predecessor in Mumbai, Gaylord’s serves the freshest curries and Indian delicacies in a sophisticated setting with service to rival the top London restaurants.

Go Bananas for Brunch at Timmy Green, Victoria, SW1

Say g’dday to the newest member of the Daisy Green Collection; Timmy Green. This Aussie inspired all day eatery is one of the first to open its doors in the new Nova complex in Victoria, an area which has felt for many years like a rather chaotic building site.

Avocado Heaven at Queenswood, SW11

Whilst Queenswood is by no means for the most frugal of brunchers, the quality of the food and the creativity behind the menu is unquestionable. A simple avacado on toast is jewelled with pomegranate seeds and fresh chilli, cuddled by marscapone and finished with an Instagram-perfect yolk.

Emilia’s Crafted Pasta Moors at St. Kat’s Docks, E1

Pasta has long been a favourite amongst households country wide, and yet it is rarely ever star of the show. Even in the nicest of restaurants it can often appear as somewhat of an after thought on a menu, lacking in both imagination and love. Not at Emilia’s; the 35 cover restaurant which opened last month in the tranquil setting of St. Katharine’s Dockyard is a testimony to this humble Italian staple.

Hygge Cocktails With A View

Awkward stools, sweaty limbs and shouty bar-service be gone; here you can enjoy a cocktail (or five) from the comfort of their super-cosy, super-hygge terrace and snuggle up on fluffy throws under warm heat lamps. Oh, and there’s table service so you legitimately do not need to leave the sofa once.
