Curry Night with Chris!

It's been a tough week and you need a break. And what better way to warm the soul than with a hot curry and some great company!

Join us for a Thursday evening of engaging and random conversation with fellow thinkers. Awkward silences are a thing of the past as we delve into some delicious Indian food and enjoy a chilled out evening of relaxed conversation.

Bring your own bottle, choose your own spice level and let's get this BALTI started! (geddit?)

Speakeasy Drinks

New is old news. It’s all about the retro as we revisit the days of America's Prohibition era in London's best speakeasy bars.

Our capital is brimming with elusive bars hidden behind unmarked doors and unassuming entrances. They invite those in the know to intimate yet raucous evenings. Join us as we sip cocktails from teacups, peruse menus hidden in books and soak up some jazz.

So, dust off your dancing shoes and dig out your map as London invites you into an underground world of illicit drinking.

John Lewis Rooftop Lunch

Escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street in the John Lewis Gardening Society rooftop, opening for its second summer. Cool down with an ice-cold beverage served from the new Gardener's Arms, rumoured to be Britain’s smallest pub.

Join us and lunch in one of the handful of 'summer houses' placed around the rooftop by Michelin Bib Gourmand award winner "Foley's".

Foley's marry up the dazzling flavours of the Middle East and Asia with local British suppliers, and will incorporate herbs grown and freshly picked daily to form a uniquely-crafted menu.

Newspapers and Naughtiness - Walking Tour

The centre of London's writing and journalism hub has always found itself on Fleet street and the surrounding areas.

Many a dirty secret, report and publishing deal have gone down in the heart of the city... But do you know all the facts?

Now is the time to give your noggin' a joggin', as well as stretching out those legs, by joining your other fellow thinkers on a lovely Sunday afternoon with one of our favourite walking tour guides - Rob.

We'll end the tour with a well deserved afternoon beverage at one of the local pubs on Fleet Street, or perhaps even visit a Victorian gin palace!
