Covent’s Second Coming
Covent Garden has got it all going on
Forget your usual pre-theatre fare – dining options in Covent Garden are looking UP. By now you’ve probably heard that a third Temper is taking up residence there, and that the 10 Cases’ latest venture, Parsons, has found a home on Endell Street… but there’s more. Jidori’s yakitori skewers are incoming, By Chloe is bringing the healthy junk, and Soho’s Le Bab gets a sister site in time for spring. Soho’s got competition!

A special late night party
Time to get your carnival on
We love Mardi Gras, but there’s only a limited amount of partying we can do on a Tuesday night. So we’ll be carrying on the celebrations until the weekend (in true New Orleans style) at Oblix East’s late night party this Saturday, 17th February. Think Carnival-inspired drinks from Southern Comfort, DJ ReviveHER on the decks until 3.30am, and panoramic views of London. Tickets are limited so book now and lock in those weekend plans.

Tickets are priced at £20 per person and include a welcome Southern Comfort 100 Proof cocktail on arrival.
