13.04 WE MADE IT! 2021
Wow, a little over a year and it seems like we’re finally there, hallelujah! Those positive vibes we’ve all been radiating through the good, the bad and the ugly have paid off. And now, it’s time to get our glad rags on! With this in mind, this week we have several London restaurants to try and a terrace playlist to turn up. And as we’re now itching to travel and dance too, we have some Balearic picks this week – new hotels – and an interview with Leo Walton from Amateurism Radio. If you haven’t checked out his station, do! There’s so much good music on there.

Have a great week all. We know you will.

xx Taryn and Team UJ

Pretty in Pink
Back to life update
Spring is here, terraces are open, and we’re thinking pink is in order. Especially the Prada pink – ‘cause if you can’t wear a pink taffeta suit to dinner now, after a year inside, then when can you? Por favor.

Leo Walton
DJ/Founder Amateurism Radio
You probably noticed some of the best soundtracks over lockdown came from Amateurism Radio – we can thank them for many a spontaneous kitchen disco. And as we’re itching to get back in the club, we’ve caught up with Leo Walton, DJ and founder of Amateurism to discuss music and things. If you too are in the market for new music, be sure to check out Amateurism.co.uk for an archive of nearly 1000 shows, or their Mixcloud.

UJ: Is there a show that you replay frequently?
LW: For anyone wanting a Friday night dance, I’d highly recommend checking out the Amateurism Collective mixes, which were the catalyst for establishing the whole station.

Torre Vella, listed bliss
This hotel looks perfect. The younger, wilder sibling to Menorca’s Santa Ponsa, Torre Vella is built around a watchtower, the entire building is listed, and it’s set amongst olive trees and medicinal herbs.

A few of our faves
So the French House terrace is back; they aren’t taking reservations, so get there early and try your luck. The Palomar and Barbary both have terraces popping up – excitingly, the Palomar’s terrace (from Wed) is going to stay open all summer. The Barbary’s pop up (from the 16th) will be one month only, so get in quick. It’s good to be saying that again!

KU, Ibiza
Ask anyone who went to Ibiza in its glory days what the best club was and they’ll be sure to say KU. Open air, and later, home to Manumission, it was here that the superclub in its truest form was born. Want a piece of history? These are extremely rare, vintage posters advertising nights at the club. Get in quick!

Patty Meal Box Special
Two we still want
We know, we’re done with pre-ordered boxes of anything. BUT. A takeaway happy meal and French toast with matcha from a hatch? That we can do. Patty & Bun’s ‘Patty Meal Box Special’ is available for two weeks only from all outlets and Shack-Fuyu will be serving the French toast via their Kinako to go hatch in Soho.

It's time, finally!
Ralph Moore, Mixmag music director and presenter at Worldwide FM (subscribe to his show, his next guests are London Grammar) has put together this back-to-life terrace playlist for us. The first track is aptly called, Open Up! Good vibes only.

Can Ferrereta, south east wonder
Deià, Pollença and Palma are the places you hear most about in Mallorca. But there are so many other great spots! Can Ferrereta in Santanyí is a new hotel from the family that owns Sant Francesc in Palma.

Circular Econ
It's growing
So Farfetch is reselling bags, Vestiaire Collective is launching a huge resale program with luxe labels (McQueen was the pilot brand), and Nike is launching a refurbished program (in 15 stores) where you bring in your next-to-new kicks, they make them shiny and resell them for a reduced price (there’s no financial reward, but saves them going into a landfill and hopefully to a good home). Who will be next?

The Dorchester
Treat yourself
We know. No one’s feeling flush right now. But, should you want to treat yourself, some of London’s faves are creating great spaces for you to do so – with some FUN unexpected additions (DJs on The Dorchester’s roof?), too.
