Opium Den
On the hunt for inspiration for my next video, we headed into Chinatown after work and went for drinks and nibbles at Opium Lounge. The bar is hidden up a stairway behind an unmarked door, so you ...

The Dog House
We've been meaning to go for dinner at The Dog House ever since we moved to Kennington but it's usually too busy to get a table. We got lucky tonight and sat on a sofa beneath a ceiling of parasol...

Westwood
We met Jenny after work and went to see the new Vivienne Westwood documentary at the Barbican. It was sooooo good and I loved all the clothes. Afterwards we went for cocktails at The Gibson, being...

Bar Billiards
Our bus into town got stopped early, so we ended up walking the rest of the way and spotting lots of new things. First we discovered New Scotland Yard with the spinning sign you see on the news.

Google Donut Shop
Google had a pop-up donut truck down at Stratford to promote the Google Mini so we decided to head down and check it out after work. Faheem met us on his way home and we joined the queue.

Babaji Pide Salonu
We headed to Leicester Square for this week's date night and made our way into Chinatown. We had just enough time to grab a quick snack before our movie, so we headed to Ichibuns. I loved their J...

The Brown Derby
We tried out another one of our local pubs this evening, The Brown Derby, next to Oval Station. It was a really cool little bar covered in strange decor and neon lights. On the subject of neon li...

Oriole
Beech Street Tunnel at the Barbican was closed this evening for a light show and Tom had got us tickets. It was pretty cool being on a road in the dark with atmospheric lights and bus stops.

Daebak
We headed for a walk down to Vauxhall after work today and stopped off to check out the sculptures on the bridge, where we also spotted the Lost River Effra. It was finally warm enough to sit out ...

Rare Burger Company
We only just noticed that there's graffiti carved into the stone above the windows on our building from the old school kids. There were lots of BMs and CMs from the 1950s but I really wanted to se...

Mews Of Mayfair
For tonight's Date Night, I'd got us a TimeOut voucher for cocktails at the Mews Of Mayfair. The bar was located in a very swanky fairy-lit alleyway in Mayfair with lots of tables on either side.

Canova Hall
We went for dinner at Canova Hall down in Brixton this evening. The restaurant is in a gorgeous old art deco department store with huge windows and lots of industrial details. We started with coc...

At The Drive In
We were off to see At The Drive In in Brixton tonight, so we stopped off at Cubana for some food before the gig. I had a Caipirinha and we ordered lots of tapas to share. We had avocado tortillas...

Transportation KitNipBox
Bobbin took the March box from KitNipBox for a test drive this morning. The theme was transportation (or more appropriately trans-purr-tation), with a selection of transport themed toys and treats.

Shoryu
Malcom & Kirsty are down in London, so we headed to Carnaby Street after work to meet them. We were a little early so met up with Jenny & Rin at Two Floors for a drink beforehand.

Peckham Levels
We woke up nice and early this morning, so decided to treat ourselves to breakfast at Milk Cafe down in Balham. We arrived at just the right time, because a long queue formed behind us, which is a...

London Transport Museum
We got a free day pass to the London Transport Museum with our Hidden London tour of Euston a few weeks ago, so we decided to head along this morning. The walkway into the museum looked like folde...

Mamuska
We were in the mood to try somewhere new for dinner but it was a cold snowy evening in London, so we didn't want to venture too far from home. Luckily Mamuska was close by at Elephant & Castle...
