Wondering what to do with your downtime? SLMan has you covered. From live sport at Ally Pally to a new menswear collab, here’s what to get stuck into…

Watch Live Sport

2023 Mosconi Cup

Thought pool was something that only got played on nights out? Think again. From 6th to 9th December, the 2023 Mosconi Cup is in town. From humble beginnings in Romford to glittering editions in Vegas, this transatlantic Ryder Cup of nine-ball pool has become the sport’s ultimate spectacle. To mark its 30th anniversary, it’s coming to Alexandra Palace – and the atmosphere will be special as the world finds out whether Europe can extend their three-year winning streak or the US can pocket a win.

Mister Nice

Get Date Night Right

Mister Nice

This 2023 opening has already established itself as a W1 dining mainstay. Its contemporary European menu from Javier Duarte (ex-Barrafina) and great wine selection pair well with the stylish monochrome setting. Our tip is the pasta alla vodka, but what you really need to know is: Mister Nice shares an owner with the upscale Mayfair members club Nikita just a few doors away – and there’s a secret corridor connecting the two, when you want to keep the party going.

Up Your Kitchen Game

Allday Goods x BAO

Not all knives are created equal. Cookware brand Allday Goods has teamed up with cult restaurant group BAO on a limited-edition Nakiri knife, hand-forged by Japan's renowned blacksmith Yoshikazu in high-carbon Aogami 2 steel. Each blade has taken six months to make, and the edge retention and toughness is second to none. Launching on Friday 8th December at 2pm, only 100 knives will be available at the Allday Goods online store – so look sharp.
