Top 5 Florists
 
 
 

1. We’re still obsessed with Petalon and their bouquets by bicycles

2. For wild bunches, Grace & Thorn are a long-standing fave

3. Speaking of wild bunches, we can’t go past That Flower Shop by Hatty Fox

4. For parties and events, Phillo is our pick

5. If you’re a florist wannabe, book a class at McQueens. They’re the best

Rebel Rave London
 
The Shop at Bluebird are doing a clear out! The UJ fashion fave will be offering up to 50% off most of its labels. So, Alexander Wang, Preen, Balenciaga, Marni…the list goes on. The sale, at Duke Street Emporium near Bond Street, starts at the spritely 8am. See you in the line!   Rebel Rave, Damian Lazarus’ underground party, has returned to London for what promises to be a slam dunk of a night – and tickets are still available. In collaboration with party promoters Unleash, expect to flit between two rooms and eight electro artists (including Skream and Francesca Lombardo) with a special set by Lazarus himself for the European debut of his new LIVE project. Cancel Saturday.

Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Everyman at the National Theatre

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

Everyman explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

SATURDAY
 
 
 
 
 
EAT:
Berber & Q
  Drink:
Naughty Piglets
 
The highly anticipated Middle Eastern and North African grill house from Josh Katz (formerly at Galvin Bistrot de Luxe and Ottolenghi) opens this weekend. Expect dishes such as fennel seed and paprika pork belly, lamb méchoui (spit roast) and maple-glazed merguez (sausage) – cooked from the charcoal grill and smoker and served on communal mess trays.   After last night's Rebel Rave, take it easy this evening at bistro and wine bar, Naughty Piglets, the new venture from husband and wife Joe Sharratt (ex-head chef at Trinity) and Margaux Aubry (from Terroirs). Here, simplicity is key. Order a bottle of natural wine from the extensive list before making your way through the menu. Our pick is the chargrilled monkfish paired with an orange vino.

BOOK NOW
 
Les 3 Étages by Dom Pérignon
 
 
 
 
For 10 days only, Dom Pérignon will be taking over a three-story townhouse in a secret central London location. Each floor will express the different levels of maturity, the so-called ‘Plénitudes’, of Dom Pérignon. Expect intimate dinners (by Skye Gyngell), opulent parties and creative collaborations. We’d expect no less.
 
Les 3 Étages by Dom Pérignon, May 5-14 2015. Tickets are priced at £95 for a morning tasting, £200 for a lunch and £250 for dinner. Register for further information and access at http://uk.domperignon.com/en-GB/les-3-etages/

SUNDAY
 
 
 
 
 
BRUNCH:
Chick ‘n’ Sours
  EAT:
Sydney Harbour Bridge Inflatable Assault Course
 
Fried chicken is back! And signifying its return is Carl Clarke’s Chick ‘n’ Sours. Order from the brunch menu – which has two options: Son In Law Eggs (fried eggs with crispy chicken skin and chilli fish roti canai) or the Brunch Bunch (fried thigh with avocado, bacon and fried egg) – before making your way through their sour cocktail menu. We'll be starting with a negroni sour followed by a rum and coke sour. Don’t leave without trying the Weetabix soft serve.   Tunnels, punch bags, and a crocodile-infested ball pit: just a few of the hurdles at the giant (free) inflatable Sydney Harbour Bridge obstacle course on the South Bank. Sponsored by Aussie breakfast drink Up & Go, prizes are up for grabs if you get the fastest time that day. And it wouldn’t be Sydney Harbour without the Opera House – so they’ve added an inflatable one, too.
