What To Do This Weekend 10.01.24


Wondering what to do with your downtime? SLMan has you covered. From candlelit workouts to a sample sale of essentials, here’s what to get stuck into…

Get Date Night Right

Bocca di Lupo

Bocca di Lupo’s Jacob Kenedy has teamed up with another Italian food guru, Rachel Roddy, to create a series of wine and food pairings that will be popping up on regular menus at his Soho trattoria throughout January. First into the spotlight, it’s the Arneis grape from Piedmont. Look for minerally notes of apricot and fennel as the team pours Malabaila di Canale’s ‘Le Tre’ Roero Arneis DOCG to go with bagna cauda – a warm anchovy and garlic fondue, with cardoons, cauliflower, fennel and bread for dipping.

Try New Flavours


This week, Notting Hill restaurant Los Mochis will open a six-seat private room for omakase dining – Juno. Omakase, of course, is the Japanese tradition of letting the chef in front of you decide what you eat. Happily then, Los Mochis has some talent in the kitchen, with exec chef Leonard Tanyag (Okku, Zuma) and sushi chef Han (Nobu, Roka) crafting 15-course experiences for the lucky few at £180 a head. Look out for dishes like wagyu with bone marrow and smoked chillies, and seared scallops with caramelised fig and truffle goma.

2-4 Farmer Street, Notting Hill, W8 7SN

Nab A Bargain


From Wednesday to Saturday this week, there’s a Pangaia sample sale in Marylebone, which means clothes, footwear and accessories at a fraction of RRP. Sustainable basics are the brand’s strong suit – we’re keeping an eye out for one of its matching co-ords.

Arlettie, 13-14 Margaret Street, Marylebone, W1W 8RN

Start The New Year Well


Workout and wellbeing class Sanctum has landed in London from Amsterdam. Its USP is candlelight. HIIT, yoga and primal fitness sessions are being laid on at a couple of candlelit churches near Paddington in coming weeks. Combining Eastern practices with Western methods, the sessions are set to soundtracks inspired by Amsterdam's electronic scene – attendees are given headphones to get their heads in the game.
