 … ate all the mini eggs, this week it’s all about fitness and R&R – check out our wellbeing section for inspiration. Other than that, we also (always) have wine on the mind, so check out our Grape Expectations trend if you love the good stuff too. Looking for a spring getaway? After our recent trip to Verbier (thanks Grey Goose), we’ve done a mini guide. It’s a great choice for a last minute trip – the conditions are still good and there’s a Haute Cuisine event on from today – so the time is now. For sun, we’re looking to Ibiza (YASS!) and we’ve added two White Isle hotels to our Do Not Disturb section, so get planning! Lastly, we’re excited to get to Scott Hallsworth’s Freak Scene, and we’re not so patiently waiting for Jackson Boxer’s St. Leonards, too. And we’ve come full circle. Enjoy the rest of this short week! Fitness, wine, food, repeat.

New Openings
Barrafina goes big in KX, Scott Hallsworth gets freaky in Soho
First things first: BIG news from the Harts Group. They’re practically taking over the new Coal Drops Yard development in King’s Cross, with Barrafina, Casa Pastor (a bigger version of their much-loved taqueria, El Pastor) and a new wine bar (aptly named The Drop) all settling in this autumn. Talk about expansion! Closer to UJHQ, Scott Hallsworth’s Freak Scene has finally opened its doors for good in Soho, and over in Shoreditch, Jackson Boxer and Andrew Clarke are to open St. Leonards – a homage to fire and ice.

Fin Spiteri
As head barman of the new Rochelle Canteen bar at the ICA, it’s safe to say Fin Spiteri knows a thing or two about where to drink in London.
What’s your favourite London restaurant?
Barrafina – it’s always a nice treat to pop in for lunch and watch the chefs cook your meal in front of you. By going on your own you can usually beat the queue too!

Where do you go to celebrate?
To celebrate my wedding this year we’ve booked the private dining room at St John. It’s really special – the perfect place for friends and family to enjoy a proper shared meal.

What’s your local?
A great cocktail bar called Ladies and Gents in Kentish Town. Built in an old, underground Victorian public toilet this bar does serious drinks in a relaxed environment and I’m usually still there when the lights go up!
