Billie’s Craft Beer Fest 2017 – Antwerp

If you had your eyes peeled at Beavertown Extravaganza 2017 you may have spotted a few flyers about Billies’ Craft Beer Festival in Antwerp this December. I chatted to the organisers to find out more. Let’s start with the big one: why did you decide to host a beer festival in Antwerp? About 4 years ago we started our craft beer bar ‘Billie’s Bier Kafétaria’ in Antwerp.  It has always been our idea to bring the better craft beers to the people and introduce them to a broad audience. With our bar we are always looking for what is still...

Magic Roundabout Winter Edition

Out with the old and in with the new. London’s very own Magic Roundabout, housed in the middle of Old Street Roundabout, has wasted no time in revamping itself and unveiling a new look for the Winter months. Don’t expect a ‘Winter Wonderland meets Silicon Roundabout’ aesthetic though. Instead organisers have crafted a different kind of transformation and the Magic Roundabout is now a heated and tented ‘Decades’ inspired glittering wonderland. Accessible via a secret staircase in the tube station, the new spectacle will take you on a journey through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Begin in the...

Martello Hall Bottomless Brunch

Housed in the now infamous London Fields Pub, Martello Hall is a relatively recent welcome breath of fresh air, and fragrant Mediterranean smells, to Hackney’s Mare Street, serving up Italian food, hand-distilled gin and a large selection of wine (and Prosecco) on tap. And more about that shortly; the venue itself is thoroughly impressive, a mishmash three floors of warehouse glamour with marble-topped tables, banquette style seating, graffiti’d exposed brick walls, giant pillars and rustic wooden finishes. There’s also a wood-fired pizza oven to the back of the restaurant surrounded by cosy tables for two. Interiors-wise this is a...

Meat me on Rupert Street: Brindisa brings Spain to Soho

When I first arrived in London, like many cash-strapped locals, my first memories of Brindisa revolve around the Borough Market restaurant’s chorizo and roasted red pepper sandwich stall. It was my go-to cheap weekend brunch for years, until the queues got too frustrating and I took my appetite, like many savvy locals, to nearby Maltby Street Market. Regardless, I’ve grown up since those days – and so has Brindisa. Having just reopened following an extensive facelift, their Rupert Street venue is all marble dining counters and modern hacienda decor. I guess it has to be, located as it is...
