Everybody’s Birthday


Soho House

You know the restaurants where it always seems to be someone’s birthday? Well, this is the year that seems to be everyone’s milestone birthday, everywhere. Starting in London, Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, will be celebrating a decade in business by moving his five bars and restaurant into guest rooms at Sea Containers, from 11-13 October. Also originally based in London, Soho House has now been in North America for 20 years, and have discounted their US hotel rooms (for members) to celebrate (book by end of Sept). Sónar Barcelona is 30 years old, and for their festivities, yesterday they provided the soundtrack to the city’s biggest soirée, La Mercè. J Crew is 40 years old (have you read The Kingdom of Prep: The Inside Story of the Rise and (Near) Fall of J. Crew by our good friend Maggie Bullock?) and they’ve relaunched some heritage pieces (we love this anorak). And lastly, the Concorde is now 50 and you can see its ‘radome’, which was on the front of its nose cone back in the day, in BA’s Concorde Room on the mezzanine level at Heathrow T5.
