I spent a rather charming evening at The Little Orchestra in March. They were using the newly opened Alexandra Palace theatre, a beautifully restored venue oozing faded glamour, much like Wilton’s Music Hall.

The Little Orchestra is actually a regular sized orchestra, j...

Another one I managed to cross off that has been on my list for an age was the Silk restaurant in Oxford Circus. I had heard the food wasn’t outstanding but the idea of eating in a converted courthouse – one that had seen the Rolling Stones and Oscar Wilde brought to t...

After only 12 years in the making I finally made it to Slimelight. I had heard it wasn’t like its days of glory when I had probably first heard of it and everyone used to go, so I had made sure I picked a special occasion – it’s 31st birthday (the birthdays are always...

Dark Circus. Never again.

When I went to the first Dark Circus party it was a collaboartion between vintage maestros Bourne and Hollingsworth and kink captains Torture Garden and replaced the excellent Belle Epoch events. It took place in the beautiful Bloomsbury Ballro...

Here's a novel idea for you - a poetry brothel. And it works rather well.

Sexing up what can already be quite a sensuous thing, the Poetry Brothel works like one might imagine a bordello of old. Kinda raucous, kinda filthy. The poets each take the stage to give you a fi...

I don't know what a buttermilk pie is when it's at home but I can tell you it's delicious. At least, it is when A Pie Party makes it. It reminds me of a pumpkin pie without the pumpkin which I'm going to guess is down to nutmeg. It was rich, bouncy and sweet. I am sold...

I did not get into Berghain. (sad times)

And then I DID get into Berghain! (techno joy!)

How did this happen?

Well, I do not think there is a guaranteed way to get into Berghain. But I think there is a definite way to make sure you don't, and when we rocked up at 6:30 in...

As part of my birthday week, I feasted. First up was Yosma, a Turkish place in Marylebone, a little further afield than the spate of places on Edgeware Road.

Walking past it, I don't think you'd necessarily be tempted inside - it looks far more basic than it really is....

It was my birthday in August which gave me an excuse to take a day off and do something off the beaten track without the hoardes of tourists around to spoil things. My choice was the Old Operating Theatre which I have been wanting to visit for a good long while now.

The...

A place can be years on my list but I'll get there eventually! Such as it was with The Marksman. I can't even remember when it first opened but way back in July I finally ate there.

Brilliant.

We didn't order that much - I wish I could have tried more but what we did get...
