Elan Cafe
We treated ourselves to a fancy breakfast at Elan Cafe on Park Lane this morning. It has to be one of the most picturesque cafes in the city with flower covered walls and pink furniture.

Paddington

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.

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.

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...
