 …another newsletter! Whilst a lot of friends were at Bestival over the weekend (we’ve been hearing great things about Grace Jones), we chose to keep it local and opted for Hackney venue hopping at Visions Festival instead. Nilüfer Yanya was our highlight (and not just because of the air con at Oval Space) – check her out! And as for this week, we’re celebrating the birthdays of Murano, Andreas and The Modern Pantry, wishing ourselves away to the English countryside with Krug, and anticipating Isabella Burley’s talk at The House of Peroni (which you can join us for), so keep reading!  
Ridley Road Market Bar
Dalston Reset
It’s all change on the Strip
Hackney Council’s approval of a strict new licensing curfew will be hard on businesses and punters – but it’s not all bad news on the Strip. New bar Screwdriver’s founders have some of the most impressive credentials Ridley Road will have seen to date and The Clove Club is creeping up Kingsland with a neighbourhood local. It’s time to hit reset.

The Modern Pantry
Happy Birthday to Ya!
Celebrations are in order
Some big names in are celebrating big birthdays – and we’re saying it’s time to join in all the fun. This month, both Angela Hartnett’s Murano and Clerkenwell institution The Modern Pantry turn 10 – with Murano hosting a series of guest dinners with the likes of Mark Hix, Jason Atherton and Marcus Wareing, and The Modern Pantry running a limited-edition menu with dishes from Shaun Searley (The Quality Chop House), Chantelle Nicholson (Tredwell’s) and Jikoni’s Ravinder Bhogal. And tonight? An unsung hero turns 25. Chelsea’s Andreas greengrocer (responsible for stocking the larders of The River Café and Petersham Nurseries) are turning 25 – and throwing a collaborative veg-centric dinner at Elystan Street to commemorate the occasion. Email them and see if there’s a last minute space!
Rachael Dalton-Loveland
Rachael Dalton-Loveland, south London native and founder of new Deptford hotspot Isla Ray, gives us the lowdown on where to hang out south of the river.
Where's your favourite south London spot?
Depends what I’m going for. To work: Cable Cafe in Oval, to drink: Skehans in Nunhead and to eat: Silk Road in Camberwell. Anywhere independent and with character.

Can you recommend us somewhere we might not have been?
Cafe Cairo in Clapham North/Stockwell is great. It’s a hidden den with funky North African themed décor. Definitely one of a kind – I’m really into that.

What are you drinking this summer?
A nice pale rosé with ice – mainly the one we stock at Isla Ray! It’s a delicious French Grenache sourced by Bancroft wines.
