  • The Yellow Pepper Martini at Eighty Six

    Admittedly, I was a bit apprehensive about walking into Eighty Six. After all, I was so used to 86 Fulham Road being my favourite tequila bar in London. Sadly, Cactus Blue closed its doors for the last time during the summer…

    86 Opens Its Doors

    When Cactus Blue’s doors closed this summer, it was a very sad day. All that was left of this Chelsea institution was a note on the door to thank everyone for the great memories. Months later, and a new bar…

    Cupcakes With Love

    So I’ve finally tried Hari’s on King’s Road. Whilst I’d like to say it was because of Hari’s local legacy on Brompton Road for over 30 years, it was actually because I saw someone sipping something deliciously pink whilst having…

    Sloane Square In Lights

    This is my favourite time of the year in Chelsea mainly because of Sloane Square’s Christmas lights. So pretty.  But these aren’t the only lights on the King’s Road. On Saturday, Duke of York Square had a ceremony for the switching…

    Just Hula!

    A Legend Called Hendrix

    Yesterday, I popped into Proud Chelsea on the King’s Road to catch Can You See Me? A Life Through A Lens…, the Jimi Hendrix exhibition, before it ended today. When I was 16 I had met Hendrix’s bass player Noel…

    The Botanist

    The Chelsea Flower show may be a long distant memory especially now it is autumn. But that doesn’t mean Chelsea is a barren land. Take The Botanist on Sloane Square. Most nights are guaranteed to be buzzy with a crowd…

    Vintage and Cocktails

    I am a firm believer in having cocktails at midnight to kickstart my birthday celebrations. So as the hour approached, we stepped out onto the King’s Road and headed for Beaufort House Brasserie. But as we turned up, the man on the…
