What To Do This Weekend 13.12.23


Wondering what to do with your downtime? SLMan has you covered. From an immersive space experience to cocktails at the Ritz, here’s what to get stuck into…

Meet Your Mates

Kettner's x The Clarence Tavern

Stoke Newington boozer The Clarence Tavern has a new outpost at Kettner’s – the Soho House townhouse that’s now open to all. Head chef Harry Kaufman keeps things fresh with his ever-changing, ingredient-led menu – the ox cheek croquettes are a must – and there’s a decent selection of natural wines. If you’ve ever fancied dining in Oscar Wilde’s old haunt, this is your chance – and it’s just round the corner from Ronnie Scott’s if you fancy a late show. 

29 Romilly St, Soho, W1D 5AL

Support A Good Cause

Be Nice Exhibition at Noho Showrooms

Charitable platform The Nice Co has opened an exhibition at Noho Showrooms to raise funds for six London charities that support families and young people across the capital.

Look out for Chris Levine's iconic Queen Elizabeth portraits, as well as illusory prints by Rob & Nick Carter, and colourful prints by graphic artist Anthony Burrill. Other artists on display include Jo Hummel, Jelly Green, Nick Smith, David Shillinglaw and Lily Mixe. The exhibition aims to raise £50,000+, with prices ranging from £80 for limited-edition prints to £10,000 for large-scale artwork.

Catch An Exhibition

Accidentally Wes Anderson

Few cinematic styles are as distinctive as Wes Anderson, or as popular – as proven by the ‘Accidentally Wes Anderson’ Instagram account that’s closing in on two million followers. London is hosting its first European exhibition of photographs inspired by the director’s colour-saturated world. Expect images of locations across the world that exude the same iconic style that defined The Grand Budapest Hotel, The French Dispatch and other big-screen favourites. Tickets start from £12.99.

81-85 Old Brompton Road, South Kensington, SW7 3LD

Grab A Drink

Cocktails at the Ritz

Few places do Christmas better than the classic London hotels. Kick off an evening at the Ritz with a meal at its Michelin-starred restaurant, then enjoy live music as London Dance Orchestra takes centre stage for the ‘Festive Live at The Ritz’ events running throughout December. Finish your evening with a ‘Yule Tide’ cocktail at the Ritz Rivoli Bar. Available this month, the drink features cranberry, mulled wine, port and white chocolate.
