 … straight out of laid-back, clean living January and bam! It’s into hard hitting Feb! From fashion weeks to award nights and everything in between, there’s lots going on. This week we look at some fun brunches – Kaia at the Ned, Breddos, Fare – but if you can’t get to any of those, look at the Nobu Shoreditch menu. Not cheap, but looks just perfect. Over in NYC, Ian Schrager’s done it again, with tonight being the first night EDITION Times Square is open for guests. Speaking of new offering – looks like Vegas is stealing our Ibiza DJs! For a weekend at least (well, and two residencies announced so far, too – Black Coffee and Guy Gerber). So if we’ve ever been tempted for a quick in-and-out Sin City trip, March it would be. Lastly, if you’re a fan of Brat, tickets go on sale today for their one-off collab with chefs from San Sebastián’s Michelin-starred Elkano, March 5th. Tix are £60, email to book. Have a good week all!  
The Surfrider Malibu
Motels On The Mind
All about the motel
With the recent opening of Mollie’s Motel & Diner by Soho House & Co., we’ve got our eyes on motels. Oxfordshire, Malibu, Joshua Tree – seems like it’s time for a road trip.

Kaia at The Ned
Brunch News
Newbies on our radar
Always on the lookout for new Sunday spots, Kaia at The Ned, Fare Bar + Canteen, and Breddos are our current brunch picks.
Carlo Scotto
Ahead of the opening of his first solo venture, Xier, the Naples-born, Angela Hartnett-mentored, well-travelled Carlo Scotto gives us some of his favourite London and global haunts. Xier opens March 4th.
Can you recommend a hidden gem in London we might not know about?
I’m a big fan of the B Street Deli on Bermondsey Street. It’s an unpretentious little bar and deli where you can easily lose a few hours drinking great wine at the counter and snacking on build-your-own cheese and charcuterie boards.

We also hear you’re extremely well travelled. Top global restaurant?
I love New York. It’s a city that’s alive with energy. When I’m there I always eat at Blanca or Per Se. When I was in Japan, my favourite restaurant was Yukimura in Tokyo.

Bank Holiday Sun May 26
Honey Dijon, Gerd, Horse Meat Disco and more!
It’s never too early to start planning the May bank holidays, and this year, save Sunday May 26th for Gala Festival in its new home of Peckham Rye South. Following a successful 2018 debut, this year will see more of the same: great food and drink vendors (Other Side Fried, Only Jerkin and an on-site restaurant by Levan), alongside headliners like UJ fave Miss Honey Dijon and Gerd Janson, with a Pleasure Dome by Horse Meat Disco. Think NYC and CHI disco and house parties and you’d be on the right track – we can feel the beat already! There will be live performances, Peckham greenery, and boutique festival vibes all round. See you there!

Ambush Errything
Gold and neon please
It might be slim pickings trying to get that Nike x Ambush faux fur jacket (there are still a couple around if you look hard enough), but we’ve decided we’re heading straight for Ambush accessories. Designed by Yoon Ahn, creative director of Dior Homme jewellery, these pieces are just what we need to brighten up Feb.

Art of the Wild
Ibiza goes to Las Vegas
We’ve always been quite smug about the fact that Ibiza is host to better artists than Vegas. They can have the Tiestos; we’ll keep The Martinez Brothers and Seth Troxlers, thanks. But there’s a shift happening…Art of the Wild, taking place March 22 – 24, will see some of Ibiza’s biggest names and brands head over to Sin City for a three-day extravaganza.

Event Highlights
This week we have a mixed bag. If you have points to burn, book at last- minute flight and head to MIA for the SoBe Wine & Food Fest, where you can wine and dine your way around South Beach. Back in LDN, today Smak, one of Norway’s best restaurants, takes up residency at Carousel, and if you’re in the mood to queue, there are tickets released every day at 9:30 am for the sold out When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other with Cate Blanchett at The National.
