By now you’ll have heard of Gingerline, the maverick supperclub that pops up at secret locations along the East London Overground.

I hadn’t seen James 2 in ages. He’d moved out last year to pursue a doomed romance, and, after a very dramatic few months, had ended up living in Hoxton. I’d last seen him at his 27th birthday party a couple of months ago, though that barely counted as I was irretrievably off my noggin […]

Mike and I are currently in the process of buying a house in East London that was last decorated in the late 1970s. The bathroom fittings are pale peach, the floors are lined with the carpet equivalent of a terrible migraine, and the wallpaper is so bad, it’s almost good. Almost. The previous owner, an […]

Hooray for Verden, because the organisational clusterfuck conundrum of the season has already been rather neatly solved. (Well, only if you’re in reach of Clapton. If not, I have another excellent suggestion in WC1 coming next week.)
“We actually had an email come through last week,” drawled the drag queen, who was sporting an enormous blonde curly wig and a full beard, “asking if we really had naked boys reading.” There was laughter. “Of course we fucking don’t!” she shouted into the (well dressed, immaculately groomed) crowd. And thank goodness for that, […]
You don’t see much absinthe these days. Most bars have a dusty bottle or two on their topmost shelves, but orders tend to be limited to dirty pints by particularly cruel birthday party attendees. Unlike rum, pisco, whisky and especially gin, absinthe hasn’t enjoyed a fashionable revival in recent years, but that could be about […]

A few weeks ago I rode my bicycle down the towpath from Angel to the East London Liquor Co in Bow Wharf for a #ZomatoMeetup. It was a beautiful golden afternoon and the canal was not its usual swampy self but a sparkling green ribbon winding its way to Victoria Park and beyond. London’s towpaths are […]
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There are two of my favourite books. It’s a shame that Tim Burton was ever allowed near them (and the horror isn’t over; look out for Looking-Glass sacrilege in 2016), but luckily there are Alice fans out there who’ve been inspired to do good by […]
Last night I went to The Generation of Z, the brand new live action show that drags its audience kicking and screaming through an old warehouse in Whitechapel a post-apocalyptic world.
Nathan Sawaya, the artist behind the Old Truman Brewery’s wildly popular The Art of the Brick exhibition, has made some pretty cool stuff out of Lego over the years. He is also – it must be said – a bit of a dick, but don’t let that stop you from going to see his work before it’s […]
