Speaking Easy: Evans and Peel vs Dach and Sons

Evans and Peel

In the ever evolving London bar scene, it seems merely calling yourself just a bar isn't enough. You seem to need a theme, apply some rules that are not to be broken or brew your own booze to stand out from the crowd. Once you're done, call yourself a speakeasy, adding an air of mystery, something that makes you feel that you're part of a special gang. Maybe a password, or a hidden door, or better still, keep yourself hidden out the back of some perfunctory diner.

[Preview] - The Nomad Cinema ft. Salt Yard Group

Nomad Cinema ft Salt Yard group

It was only the other day that I was reminiscing about grand open air cinemas, amphitheatres of the modern day. Just outside Frankfurt, where I grew up, I was taken as a treat to see The Goonies on a massive outdoor screen, bringing along all the junk food an eight year old would need (basically just a bag of sweets). The occasion, the screen, the film, they all still resonate within me. I know the weather in the UK is debateable at the best of times, but I do wonder why we don't have more outdoor drive in cinemas.
