Weekend Guide March 10 - 12

We’re finding a new store to refresh our wardrobe, trying out the latest wave of London’s poké craze, eating at the new Hawksmoor and diving into Holi celebrations with Dishoom. But don’t worry, if you’d rather stick with what you know, there’s good old Champagne.

The House of Peroni
Sponsored Listing
From Wednesday 15th to Saturday 18th March, visit the House of Peroni for an art experience that’s a bit different than your usual gallery: merging art and technology and inviting you to step into a virtual word. Step into the work of three pioneering artists through VR, before using Tilt Brush by Google to create your own masterpiece. When you’re all cultured out, stop by the aperitivo bar for a Peroni Nastro Azzurro infusion and a Calabrian antipasti platter.
Tickets £20, available to purchase here. The House of Peroni takes residence at 147 Wardour St, Soho, London, W1F 8WD
No admission fee for bar area. 18+ only
Honi PokéNTS Presents: Tomaga
Ahi Poké in Fitzrovia, Black Roe in Mayfair and now Honi Poké in Soho – it looks like the poké trend is showing no sign of halting. The menu, which offers the classic tuna and salmon poke alongside flame-torched octopus and tofu, has been created by Michelin-starred chef Richard De La Cruz, so we’re expecting good things. You can trust NTS radio to showcase something totally different to shake up your normal Friday night. Go and see Tomaga at Camden’s iconic Jazz Cafe, where the duo will be playing their unusual blend of industrial, jazz, psych and minimal music.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Young Vic
Sponsored Listing
Up your culture game with a trip to the theatre for the Young Vic’s take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Dark fantasies and nightmarish visions unfold in this bold take on Shakespeare’s unparalleled tale of love, betrayal and desire. Director Joe Hill-Gibbins teams up with designer Johannes Schütz to dive into the subconscious of Shakespeare’s masterpiece – watch the trailer here.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs until 1 April, £10 – £36, at the Young Vic Theatre, 66 The Cut, SE1 8LZ
Notting Hill Champagne FestivalHawksmoor Borough
Any event that promises overflowing bottles of Champagne and 5000 french oysters has our attention. If it’s a weekend of decadence you’re after, get your glad rags on and head to the Notting Hill Champagne Festival for a chance to try your favourite bubbles (and discover some new ones). The latest addition to the Hawksmoor family is their newly opened Borough location, but it feels like the stellar steakhouse is doing things a little differently this time around. The new restaurant is housed within a Victorian warehouse and flooded with natural light – unlike the subterranean Hawksmoor vibe we’re used to. Food wise, there will be the classics but also specials which make the most of the nearby market. Hawksmoor 2.0.

Holi at DishoomHackney Record Fair

Being covered in paint however, is not optional. Cratediggers, see you at Hackney Record Fair this weekend. It’s vinyl heaven, with over 50 stalls, a mix of labels, record stores, collectors and enthusiasts bringing their wares.
