We were treated to afternoon tea and a tour of Park Lane’s Playboy Members Club and it was an experience to say the least! After refreshing our memories on the baroque-style events space they have, we were shown to our table by a gorgeous bunny! The afternoon tea was interesting and different, focusing on skilfully mastered cocktail teas and shots. We finished off with a cocktail-making class which we would highly recommend as an addition to your event!

Hotel Café Royal – 68 Regent St, Soho, London W1B 4DY

We can’t get enough of this venue, so we didn’t hesitate to attend their summer showcase last month. Taking place in the famous pompadour ballroom, the BBQ was blazing and the drinks were flowing. Café Royal is one of our favourite venues to host events at, as the ballroom is unique and breath-taking – reminiscent of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. Check out our twitter for pics!

Zelman Meats – 2 St Anne’s Ct, Soho, London W1F 0AZ

Zelman Meats is our go-to restaurant for a post work feast. Set in the heart of Soho, it offers the best of beef and accompanying sides, all cooked in front of you in the open kitchen. Top Tip: Make sure to ask about the specials!

The Coach – 3 West St, Marlow SL7 2LS

We ventured out of London for this one, but alas it was worth the journey! Sitting on the pretty and petite Marlow high street, The Coach is an absolute Gem. Headed up by Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge, the pub-like restaurant only takes walk-ins so make sure to get there for an early or late dinner if you want to avoid waiting. As it’s a sharing plate concept, we ordered almost everything on the menu and we would recommend you do the same!

Smokestack Shoreditch – 35 Sclater St, London E1 6LB

After first tasting their BBQ meats at Dinerama, they have gone from strength to strength and we couldn’t wait to visit their new permanent home. Nestled in a side street in Shoreditch, they’ve decked the room out with sharing tables, booths an open kitchen and given the walls a slick of black paint. Their classic ribs are the star of the menu and you can’t go there without ordering them. The sides are also AMAZING and we ordered all of them 😛

Paradise by Way Kensal Green – 19 Kilburn Ln, London W10 4AE

We just love this venue – gastropub by day, pumping nightclub come dusk. We visited here for a birthday where we hired their Reading Room for 18 guests and it was gorgeous and rustic. It was a Sunday so we had the tough decision of what roast to order. We will go as far as saying that this was the best roast we’ve had in London!

Honest Burger – 4 Market Pl, Fitzrovia, London W1W 8AD

Ah a classic ‘It’s Friday, screw the diet’ type of work lunch. We went to the Honest Burger in Oxford Circus to meet up with some friends. The atmosphere was electric and the food matched. We would recommend anything on this menu, but you’ve got to try their bacon ketchup either in your burger or to dip ‘London’s best chips’ into!

Percy & Founders – 1 Pearson Square, Fitzrovia, London W1W 7EY

We’re lucky enough to be based around the corner from Percy & Founders, so whether it’s a working lunch or a post-work dinner, we’re in luck. This huge two floored restaurant leaves tables for walk-in’s if you’re unorganised like us! The seasonal menu has a lot to offer but if we had to choose our fave it would be the wild mushroom risotto – wash it down with a latte (if it’s Monday) or a cocktail (if it’s Friday)!
