Wondering what to do with your downtime? SLMan has you covered. From a new golf experience to London Coffee Festival, here’s what to get stuck into…


Book Ahead:

L’Abysse X Pavyllon London

One for the sushi heads: Yannick Alléno is bringing his Paris restaurant L’Abysse to his Michelin-starred outpost in the Four Seasons Park Lane. Later this month, Pavyllon London will host a one-of-a-kind omakase dining experience headed up by sushi master Yasunari Okazaki. It will be an intimate experience, taking place at the eight-seater bar counter in Pavyllon’s private dining room. The multi-course menu will feature signature L’Abysse dishes like panko-crust sea urchin with grapefruit; French sake katsu scallop tartare; and hand-shaped nigiri. This is an elite experience with prices to match: for lunch or dinner, the omakase menu is £390pp, with a sake, wine and tea pairing for another £200 a head.

Sotto X The Cocktail Guy

Rich Woods – aka The Cocktail Guy – is teaming up with Soho’s Sotto to bring a bit of la dolce vita to London.

Take The Boys:

Nancy Spains

Irish bars are known for good beers, music and vibes, and Shoreditch’s newest addition, Nancy Spains, is no different. The beer range is expansive, and the whiskey selection includes classics like Jamesons, West Cork Whistler and Connemara, as well as smaller brands distilled in the home county of the pub’s owners, including Dingle Whiskey. There’s a homey, convivial feel to the place and, of course, there’s live music to stomp your feet to every Thursday-Sunday. The baby Murphy’s are a must try.
