  • The Chelsea Arts Club

    The other day I visited Piers Feetham Gallery to take a look at some paintings by Dan Pearce. I had met Dan before Christmas at The Chelsea Arts Club and it was a real delight to meet him inside this…

    French Martini at PJ’s

    So we’re in the first week of January and I haven’t had my first cocktail of the year yet. Well, I actually have but served up at home: a Horse’s Neck, but I’ll leave that for another post. This post will focus…

    Chili Martini at Sophie’s Steakhouse

    The Chili Martini at Sophie’s Steakhouse is easily one of my favourite cocktails in Chelsea. It’s so good that at the end of the night when all the other foodies are paying their bill, I have to order just one more…

    The Dusty Rose at The Botanist

    Last week I was just about to step into The Botanist when I was asked what my poison was. I replied King’s Robe. But when the kind gentleman went to the bar, I discovered that the King’s Robe was no more.…

    World’s End

    The other day, I popped into Vivienne Westwood’s shop on the King’s Road to browse the handbags. Oversized and textured, colourful and rebellious, the latest collection is a true feast for the edgy. This shop that once confused me as…

    Welcome!

    There’s a general myth about Chelsea if you don’t know the area. It’s something to do with the correlation of wealth and having a good time. So let me clarify matters: this equation is untrue. Admittedly, a drinking experience in…

    Dirty Martini at Sophie’s Steakhouse

    I have a confession to make. Up until three years ago, I had never eaten at Sophie’s Steakhouse. I had nothing against red meat and had heard rave reviews about their delicious sauce but my regular presence at this Chelsea establishment…
