 …say it? The holidays are coming. This week sees Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland open with a host of new additions for 2018, and it’s also week two for Sink the Pink’s How to Catch a Krampus at the Pleasance Theatre. In other news, Bodega Rita’s at CDY is opening on the 23rd (watch out for our Instagram preview tomorrow) and we hope you saw our visit to Sager and Wilde’s Fare last week too – if not, check out our new previews section on Instagram. Lastly, if you feel like celebrating Thanksgiving, be sure to check out our roundup: any excuse for a party, right? Enjoy!

Come Hungry
The return of tasting menus
Having fallen out of favour with the rise (and rise) of small plates, we’ve got a feeling that tasting menus might be making a comeback. Som saa have just announced they’re launching one (as well as taking reservations – woop!), W’s latest Dining Series is a seven-courser with Ben Murphy, and Caractère’s create-your-own tasting menu concept (pick a dish from each of their signature traits) has officially got us intrigued. And for a real blow out? Watch out for the 10 course tasting menu at Carlo Scotto’s Xier, opening early 2019.
Glyn Fussell
As the co-founder of East Creative (Sink the Pink, Mighty Hoopla, Metropolis), Glyn Fussell is the man behind some of London’s best nightlife, and one of our favourite people. Keep reading for his tips, and make sure you book in for Sink the Pink’s weird and wonderful Christmas show, How to Catch a Krampus, ASAP – it’s one of our annual festive highlights.
Can you recommend a hidden gem?
The Karaoke Hole in Dalston. It’s underneath Voodoo Rays and is the BEST! Karaoke but camper – and with effects. Also AMAZE cocktails.

Insta Watch
Roger Frampton
Get movin’!
Roger Frampton got our attention when he mentioned that you could add five years to your life with regular stretching. His stories may be largely dog cameos and plant-based chat, but his feed offers easy stretching and fitness tips that don’t involve the gym – we like. Interested? Check out his ‘gram or order his book and get squatting.
Luxe Books
Find out what’s on our wishlist
In the spirit of our big blingin’ trend this week, we’ve included some books to match. Get inspired with a look inside the Ivy League colleges, a celebration of the Porsche 911 RS, some of Oscar Niemeyer’s icons and the best vintages of the 20th century.
The Weekend
Weekend, we’re coming for you. Spend Friday celebrating Nobu Matsuhisa’s new cookbook with a tasting of his signature dishes at the World of Nobu Festival; drop by the Ace on Saturday to check out their new pop-up shop; and be one of the first to try Balthazar and Sweet Miami’s collaborative cocktails on Sunday.
