Mr Fogg's Gin Parlour Review

Mention the word 'gin' to people and their response falls into the following 3 very specific camps:
1. "I remember when gin was really old-fashioned and no one drank it and now it seems to be really popular". We call these people 'old'.
2. "I've always liked gin way before it became fashionable and everyone started drinking it" *shudders delicately with disgust*. We call these people 'dicks'.
3. "I just like drinking and gin seems to be everywhere". We call these people 'heroes'.
And gin bars are indeed sprouting up everywhere and it was around last year when Mr Fogg's (you know, the one with the hot air balloon casually suspended in the corner) expanded his ventures from Mayfair to Covent Garden with a gin parlour boasting an inventory of 300 varieties of gin.

Circus Restaurant Review

Cocktails at Circus Restaurant Review

Once upon a time when Southern Rail and the RMT Union were hanging out and being cool, I went into London quite frequently. Then they had the mother of all spats and now the children are crying and tea isn't on the table anymore so it halted my London jaunts for a while. But in between the plate throwing, I went to Covent Garden to have dinner and drinks at Circus.

Drink Shop & Do Bar Review

Drink Shop & Do Bar Review
If these aren't life rules up there, then I don't know what they are

My bestie often jokes that when we're (includes our group of mutual friends, not just us making a Thelma and Louise pact) old, we should buy a giant mansion and live a kind of commune existence. I am well up for the idea of this girly commune (I'm in the "no boys allowed" camp like some sort of walking, talking David & Goliath ambassador) and in my mind I picture this commune to have sections - like an OAP Crystal Maze if you will - with one of the sections like Drink Shop & Do.

Cocktails come in many alluring guises. It can be sophisticated and elegant, quirky and experimental or just lively and good fun. If Happiness Forgets was a person, they'd be fun Bobby.

Hard Rock Cafe Brunch Review

Hard Rock Cafe Brunch Review

I believe you when you say you love eating healthily as much as I believe you when you say you woke up like that. You lying fabulously svelte individual. No one loves eating healthy food; you love your reflection when you look fit AF following a diet of instagram worthy avocado and poached eggs, seeds of some variation and the obligatory nutribullet / juice phase. Well thankfully throughout April Hard Rock Cafe's Rock N Roll brunch is the anti-avocado bringing fat and order back in the world.
