This Week We Have Been. . .
Dancing and chanting at the Zero Hour Market – part one of the Hotel Medea trilogy, the Zero Hour Market is an fascinating, interactive journey re-imagining the story of the marriage of Medea and Jason. The experience was totally magical and attracted a really diverse audience ranging from old ladies in pearls to sassy young Brazilians! It’s imaginative, unusual and energetic – sucking you into a colourful, crazy, mythical world and then spitting you out on the Southbank wishing you were in Rio.
Stuffing our faces with chicken and beef at Tramshed, Mark Hix’s latest Shoreditch restaurant. The menu is simple – a choice of one of two things – chicken or beef? The mighty-marbled Glenarm sirloin steak is to die for and did we mention they also offer a takeaway service – winner winner chicken dinner! The interior is sleek, smart and arty with a specially commissioned Damien Hirst installation taking centre stage – a cockerel perched on the back of a cow, perfectly playing up to the chicken and steak theme – we likey!
Indulging in Parisian chic at Le Chateaubriand. What looks like a stylish French bistro for beautiful Parisian types in the 11th arrondissement turns out to be number 15 on the world’s 50 best restaurants list. The menu changes daily and is paired with wine making for a laid-back, modern twist on French dining. Food 9/10. People watching 10/10.
Soaking up every ray of precious sunshine at the Camden Roundhouse pop-up beach – the terrace has been transformed into a city seaside, complete with sandcastles, tiki bar, deck chairs and outdoor screens for cheering on Team GB! Heading to the beach is our new favourite way to relax after a hard day’s work, so make sure to check it out before it closes at the end of August. Indulge in the lip-smackingly good cocktails at the Margarita Shack (we recommend the rum punch) or a beach burger from the grill!
