What To Do This Weekend 03.05.24


Wondering what to do with your downtime? SLMan has you covered. From a sandwich collab to a Guy Ritchie-approved getaway, here’s what to get stuck into…

Order In

Ikoyi X Uber Eats

If you’re planning on enjoying some downtime this bank holiday weekend, you don't even need to leave your house for this hot foodie collab, which launches today. Uber Eats has partnered with the world-class Ikoyi to launch the UK’s cheapest two-Michelin-starred menu – at just £60pp. Exclusively available through the delivery platform, Ikoyi's executive chef, Jeremy Chan, has developed a five-course menu in the restaurant's signature, out-of-the-box style. Modern West African influences are clear in the dishes: think mutton merguez, fried chicken, jollof rice with crab custard and suya tamari pork, followed by a flower sugar cake for dessert.

Secret Sandwich Shop X It’s Bagels

Notting Hill favourite Secret Sandwich Shop has been hosting a series of monthly collaborations this year. For May it’s teaming up with It’s Bagels, the Primrose Hill hotspot known for – well, have a guess. Together, they’ve come up with a salt beef bagel, stacking layers of melted Swiss cheese, pulled salt beef, French’s mustard, house pickles, shaved red onion and Kewpie mayo. The limited-edition offering will also be on the menu at It’s Bagels.

Start Early


SLMan’s go-to mixologist Mr Lyan has launched a weekend menu at his flagship bar. The ‘perfect afternoon’ menu will be on at Lyaness each Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm, featuring two cocktails and two bar snacks for £30. Channelling Mr Lyan’s revolutionary spirit, English coastal oysters will be offered alongside Space Raider devilled eggs and pan con tomate. All sounds good for a pitstop after perusing the South Bank’s cultural institutions.
