MARK BLACK HISTORY MONTH:

The Black British Pub Quiz

To mark Black History Month, Boxpark is hosting a range of events during October, including a quiz on Black British culture on Sunday 17th October at 7.30pm. Covering music, film, social media, politics, geography and pop culture, you’ll be asked a series of questions to challenge your knowledge of Black British history. Get beers from the bar and head to Mama Jacq’s for Caribbean jerk chicken, curry goat and fish tacos. Tickets are £7pp or £36 for a group of six.

SHOP COLLECTABLE STREETWEAR:

The Edit LDN, Harrods

Sneakerheads, this one’s for you. The Edit LDN has just opened its first UK concession at Harrods. With an exclusive selection of one-off and collectible sneakers and streetwear picks, you can shop big-name brands like Yeezy, Jordan, Off-White and Supreme, as well as under-the-radar brands like Fear of God (who also make some seriously cool athleisurewear). We’ve got our eye on some of Nike’s limited-edition trainers. 

87-136 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, SW1X 7XL

BOOK IN FOR SUNDAY LUNCH:

Harwood Arms

London’s only Michelin-starred pub has a new head chef. Jake Leach has joined the Harwood Arms. If you’ve already tried the scotch eggs and Sunday roasts there, you know to believe the hype. To celebrate his arrival, Leach has created some bar snacks, including slices of rich beef tongue on dripping toast with celeriac; and oyster schnitzels. He’s also put together a new main course of Iberico pork with carrots, girolles and oats. Reaffirming the Harwood’s love for game, there’s also a venison pâté en croûte and slow-cooked fallow deer shoulder on the menu. We can’t think of a better place to settle into on a Sunday afternoon.

UNCOVER COOL ART & MERCH:

Laz Emporium

Banksy's former agent Steve Lazarides has opened a store and exhibition space in Soho. Laz Emporium, which started as an online shop last year, sells a range of eclectic artwork by the likes of Jonathan Yeo, Jake Chapman, Charming Baker and Jamie Hewlett (co-creator with Damon Albarn of Gorillaz). Visitors can also browse homeware, furniture, collectibles and books, including a collection of Lazarides’ photographs of Banksy creating his iconic graffiti. Expect monthly exhibitions too – right now, the work of Scottish design studio War Boutique is on display.

EAT A GREAT BURGER

Flat Iron, Clink Street

For great steak at an affordable price point, Flat Iron always fits the bill. The steakhouse has opened a slick new branch on Clink Street, next door to the notorious old Clink Prison near Borough Market. Alongside the restaurant’s signature £12 steak, there’s a newbie on the menu: the seriously meaty smoked short rib chilli cheeseburger. Order with some sides – we recommend the beef dripping chips, creamed spinach and roast cauliflower – and wash it down with a negroni, old fashioned, or a couple of craft beers.

GET YOUR CULTURE FIX:

Wildlife Photographer Of The Year

Tomorrow, the Natural History Museum opens its Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. It features the top 100 submissions among thousands of entries – many focus on the climate crisis and how global warming is affecting the natural world. Look out, in particular, for Robert Irwin’s drone image of Australia’s raging bushfires which has already won the People’s Choice Award. Other top entries include a striking image of a bloody lion feasting on a wildebeest. Ticket start from £15.50.

GO OUT OUT:

Louche, Soho

Louche is the new late-night drinking den on Greek Street to know about. Created by the same team behind Records Bars, the three-storey venue will host regular live-music nights across two stages in its atmospheric bar, decorated with photos of Soho legends like jazz musician Horace Silver and club owner Madame Louise. As well as craft beer on tap, guests can try cocktails like the ‘Lady Stanley’ made with vodka, Chambord and lime, or the ‘Watermelon Mezcalita’ featuring mezcal, lime and watermelon. Bring your mates for one of the jazz nights.

TUNE INTO A NEW PODCAST:

The Problem With Jon Stewart

This current affairs series deserves a spot in your podcast library. Each week, writer-producer-director Jon Stewart dives into the issues affecting us most, discussing them with the people who are impacted – and some of those creating the impact. Together, they try to take steps that can lead to a ‘solutionary’ way forward. In the first episode, Stewart speaks to two veterans on the mighty topic of ‘the problem with war’. Hosted by Apple TV, the podcast’s sister TV series is also set to hit the platform later this month.
