Feels great to be hearing about ‘weeks’ again – Fashion Week, Frieze… the good ones at least. It’s also been great to see several festivals and club nights go ahead these last few weekends, here’s hoping! To us, September always feels like the new year, and this year we’re especially ready for one. So happy Sept all! Let’s make it a great one.

x Taryn and Team UJ
The Trend
The Sea, The Sea
Go Fish
It's raining seafood
There’s a lot of seafood coming through! The Seafood Bar (now on soft launch), is a transfer from Amsterdam, bringing two floors of seafood towers, oyster parties, and marble. In Haggerston, The Sea, The Sea, the second venue from a much-loved Chelsea spot, is a chef’s fishmonger, restaurant and wine bar, with a standout, sultry 12-person chef’s table. And also east, we already love the menu at Bar Flounder, which includes crab hash browns, a lobster egg and cheese breakfast muffin, salmon tartare with truffle Torres crisps, and turbot tenders with buffalo hot sauce.
Lounging Around
Mr Lyan + BA
We love seeing good things happen to great people, and Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, going into the BA Concorde Lounges in JFK and Heathrow T5 with bespoke menus and two signature serves, seems like a great match.
Product Picks
Prep / Skate
Blame it on Evan Mock (are we too old for Gossip Girl reboot references? Maybe…), but we’ve got prep / skate style on the mind.
The Republic of Beer
Sept 8 and 9
Sponsored listing
They say Czechs think of their homeland as ’The Republic of Beer’ as they are so passionate about brewing. Now, we all know that beer doesn’t grow on trees, but this weekend, Budvar will grow on trees at their two day pop up in the city. Head down to Observation Point SE1, where you’ll step into the Republic of Beer and be given a ‘passport’ before you pick your own, chilled, slow-aged (free) Czech lager off the Budvar Beer Tree (it’s a thing!); then sit back and pretend you’re on holiday. A stamp in your passport is also good for a Budweiser Budvar at a nearby participating bar.
Post Rona Movement
So Rita’s has opened the terrace at their Lexington location and the menu, which includes things like vegan fried eggplant panino, fried chicken burgers, cubanos on turmeric bread, toasted corn and cheddar beignets, and courgette quesadillas, has us racing to get in. They’re also getting ready for Frieze, and their Clerkenwell bodega is open Tues- Friday (11-4, kitchen closes at 3). The Ledbury is coming back in a more casual guise, and JOY has moved its cactus disco to Marylebone (for now); they also have a short menu available daily from 12-7.
Bellini Travel
Italy with Succession
Need help planning a trip to Italy? Then it’s Emily from Bellini Travel that you need on speed dial. And it seems we Londoners aren’t the only ones who know this as she’s just spent the summer with the cast of Succession, shooting Season 3. Move over Stanley Tucci… think we have a new show with a great Italian backdrop incoming.
Bellini Travel
Café Bao
Take Two
Innovative dishes
We’re always up for Asian cuisine, so Super-Ya Ramen’s noodle ice cream with miso caramel at their new Kingsland Road location, and Café Bao’s new breakfasts in King’s Cross, including sausage hashbrown baos, and Dan Bing pancakes, sound like a must try.
Where we want to go right now
Octopus. Sea. Minerals. Vino.

No Comply: Skate Culture and Community at Somerset House
Culture Watch
Three for you
And we’re back to skateboarding! No Comply: Skate Culture and Community at Somerset House explores the impact of skate culture on the UK over the past 45 years (til 19 Sept). There will also be a pop up skate park outside the entrance, in collaboration with Vans (8-24 Sept); The Normal Heart – 35 years after its UK premiere – is back at the National with its groundbreaking play about AIDS in the ‘80s; and BRXTN studios is a state-of-the-art facility that is committed to the next gen of artists, providing support to develop them.
