Our London Top 5, Right Now

Our Top 5 London Recommendations This Week

In the labyrinth of alll the things going on in London this week, the Top Five is like string, breadcrumbs, a GPS, and a get-out-of-maze-free card, all in one…

Bébé Bob | 50% off the food bill for Nudge Members

“Any main course the customer wants as long as it’s chicken or chicken”

That’s the Henry Ford-esque philosophy at Bébé Bob, the slightly more casual (but still somehow impossibly glamorous) spin-off restaurant from the Bob Bob Ricard team that opened last year to much fanfare, and has been going gangbusters ever since. They served precisely two main courses, and both of them were a roast chicken.

Well, drumroll please, because now they’ve added a third dish. It’s a golden schnitzel wrapped in ultra-crisp Japanese panko breadcrumbs, and it presumably means that they now serve any main course the customer wants as long as it’s chicken or chicken or chicken.

And to balance to that expansion, they have a rather welcome reduction for Nudge Members too, who are getting an exclusive 40% off food (and a complimentary glass of champagne at lunch, too) until 31st July. Details here.

Address: 37 Golden Square, London, W1F 9LB

Floating Cinema | What’s Up, Dock?

Want see a movie with real depth? Well, this week we’re seeing the return of The Floating Cinema, which runs from 17th-21st July. Loaded onto the slate is a line-up of suitably aquatic classics, including The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo and The Life Aquatic.  There’s also small bar to the side for liquid refreshment, although don’t go overboard lest you quite literally do go overboard…

Details: 17th-21st July | St. Katharine Docks, E1W 1LA | You can see what’s on, and book tickets, here

➌ Weekend Brunch at Roe | 50% off for Nudge Members

The Croissant Royale – good lord it looks delicious

After opening a couple of months ago, Roe has been greeted with a flurry of beyond-glowing reviews, throngs of ravenous diners, and a level of hype that could power a small country. So it’s probably good news that they’re now doing brunch.

And even better news that as of this weekend, Nudge Members (+1) are getting 50% off the brunch food bill every Saturday & Sunday from 20th July to 25th August. Details here.

Address: Five Park Drive, Wood Wharf, E14 9GG

Slice-O-Mania | A huge pizza & beer festival

After successfully wrapping up the Tacover for another year, the organisers decided they were hungry for more – so they’ve set up Slice-O-Mania, which they’re billing as “The UK’s biggest Pizza and Beer festival”, and we’re not inclined to argue. You can expect slice-slingers from across the nation (Fold Me Close, Pigs Pizza, Yeast Brothers, etc) as well as live DJs, speed eating competitions, and a hot pizza challenge.

Details20th-21st July | Signature Brew Blackhorse Road | £10-£14

➎ Wine Car Boot | Pop-Up Wine Fair, extra wine tokens for Nudge Members

The Wine Car Boot is full of best cellars.

After all, it’s where you can really get under the hood of London’s independent wine scene, with the city’s most exciting wine retailers, importers and producers coming together to pour their most interesting (and surprisingly affordable) bottles. It’s hitting Coal Drops Yard this weekend, and Nudge Members and a friend can uncork a juicy £5 discount on a Wine Car Boot tasting pack, which will also be topped up with 5 extra tokens (worth another fiver). Details here.

Details: 20th July, 12-8pm Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross, N1C 4DU Free entry
