 …we’re sensing a bit of playfulness in the air. From vintage cartoon T-shirts and Mickey sneakers to Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang heading to Somerset House, everywhere we look it’s ‘toons. Add that to Virgil Abloh’s Wizard of Oz-inspired SS19 Louis Vuitton pop up (on in Mayfair until Thursday – book tickets), and we’re feeling almost young again. After an amazing dinner at Coal Office (GO!), we’re excited to get over to Coal Drops Yard again this week to check out all that’s new there, and we’re eyeing up ROVI’s new breakfast menu too. Lastly – the weekend before Halloween is looming, and we’ve got some party ideas for you below. Enjoy!

The buzzword restaurants set to last
Trends may die, but great meals are immortal. Or so we’re ready to argue thanks to shop-and-restaurant crossovers, biblically good plant-based junk food and more hyper-region-specific cuisine launches, all bang-on the buzzword money and here for the long-term.

CBD Watch
Farmacy led the way with their CBD-infused High Tea, and now we’re noticing it everywhere. By CHLOE’s FEELZ pop up launched in London last week with CBD-infused brownies, cupcakes and cookies (and even a CBD-infused dog bone), you can have it in your cocktail at Maison Bab (go for the gin and chronic), and even in your frozen yoghurt. Time to chill!

Yep, Peanuts!
It’s official: UJ loves Peanuts. After the launch of the Peanuts Global Art Collective in April, we’re seeing Snoopy on everything. We loved the collabs with Vans and Champion, we want one of these prints for our wall and we want to see the Charlie Brown exhibition which opens at Somerset House this week. We’re even thinking about booking a stay in the Peanuts Hotel.
Sam Hart
Ahead of the public opening of the much-awaited Coal Drops Yard this Friday (26th October), we spoke to Sam Hart, the man behind four of the new openings there: Barrafina, Casa Pastor, Plaza Pastor and The Drop wine bar.
What's your all time favourite restaurant in London?
River Café has brilliant food and uses wonderful ingredients – their seafood and pasta I particularly love.

Can you recommend us a hidden gem we might not have been to?
Bar Shu on Frith Street serves fabulously spicy Sichuanese cooking using all sorts of exotic ingredients. Their chicken in a pile of chillies is my favourite dish on the planet.

Curse of the Red Kiss
A Halloween party with a difference
With a little over a week to go until Halloween, it’s time to start making plans. We think cocktails, a four course dinner at Berners Tavern and dancing at the EDITION’s BASEMENT club sounds just like our kind of party. We say book in for Curse of the Red Kiss – or enter our competition to win a pair of tickets to the BASEMENT party (usually £25), including a drink.

The Weekend
