New Year's Eve

THE ROARING TWENTIES

We’re halfway through those awkward teens, so are going to throw a grown up New Year’s party this year: a luscious, ludicrous, hedonistic affair.  Great Gatsby-esque.  Flapper girls and prohibition style cocktails.  Being nothing but suave.

Anyhow – dress in your best Golden Era get-up and join us for dinner, drinks and sparkling fun. We have an early menu if you’re off elsewhere, or the full five course business from 8pm. If you just want to come for the party, email us for free guestlist.

Want to hear from us?

WEIRD RUSSIA

What’s the thinking behind blog ‘Weird Russia’? Covering an obscure amount of nonsensical Russian news like a bigger, colder, badder Buzzfeed it leaps nimbly from featuring poems written by Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the people of Crimea, to Craigslist personal ads from Yevgeny, Russia’s most eligible hitman bachelor, to videos of roadside rage (gun v. axe).

The ads around the page (Find True Love with Ukraine Woman Dynamic Response. Fast & Secure) only add to the absurdity of this website. Strangely addictive.

Parties & private dining

The Little Room

Just because you can’t make it out to that lovely country house, doesn’t mean country house can’t come to you.  Private dining for up to 14, sharing menus for every occasion and all those mod-con meeting facilities neatly hidden away.

Alpine Cobbler

A drink for when you leave a winding road along the Riviera for a toasty chalet on a snowy hilltop – got the last taste of summer rounded off with the first ones of winter.

25ml Genepi
50ml Dolin Vermouth
Slice each of orange, lemon & grapefruit

Muddle the fruit in the base of a rocks glass, then add the rest of the ingredients and some crushed ice.  Give it a good churn with a bar spoon and top up with some more curshed ice.  Garnish with a furher slice of each fruit, alpine herbs and a few white grapes for good measure.

MIRRORCITY

London is one of the world’s hotspots for contemporary art, and MIRRORCITY explores the effect of the digital revolution on how we exist here.  This Hayward Gallery exhibition brings together both new and established artists to answer complex questions around how technology impacts both our digital and physical spaces.

Through a wide variety of media, the artists look at how where the crossover of the two realities lies, and how this influences our perception of the world.

Until 4th January at the Hayward Gallery, tickets are £12

    BEAUTY OF BERMONDSEY FILM COMPETITION

    Once, not so long ago, our little wedge of London was a scrapbook of slums, rundown factories and destitution.  In fact, Bermondsey has pretty much always been a hotbed of disrepute – home to the most undesirable industries of industrial Britain, with the unfortunate folk to staff them. Anyhow. Now it’s not. There’s something, however, [...] Read More
  • LE LONG WEEKEND

    At last, we’re through the long nights and cold days, and the time of year that doesn’t afford us a single three day weekend, mini-escape, cause for lightweight celebration.  But here we are!  Easter is upon us, not just one short week, but two, with sun in the forecast and four whole days of weekend [...] Read More

LIZA LOU, SOLID / DIVIDE

An evolution of Liza Lou’s works with glass beads, Solid / Divide explores the process of making, and the beauty of imperfection which comes from handcrafting – in particular, the subtle personal differences which reveal themselves in the repetitive activity of weaving.

Solid is never quite solid.

Until 18th January at the White Cube, Bermondsey

CONTEMPORIST

The Contemporist curates the lives we lead in the future we see in our dreams. You know, after we’ve secured the book deal for that novel we dream of writing in our spare time, and we have the resources to build a grand, remarkable house with an enviable view with the help of some of the world’s best architects.

We’ll probably build it from eco friendly, sustainable materials and there’ll definitely be an infinity pool. Anyway, we digress. In the short term, we’ll just carry on renting and drooling over Contemporist.
