What To Do This Weekend 03.05.23


Wondering what to do over the extra bank holiday weekend? SLMan has you covered. From menswear pop-ups to Coronation celebrations, here’s what to get stuck into…



Mayfair Coronation Party

On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May, Mayfair is throwing a garden party to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. Grosvenor Square will be transformed with decorations, music, entertainment, and themed cocktails and dishes. The square will be decked out in flowers and greenery inspired by the royal Highgrove estate, and there will be cinema-sized screens for the live coverage. Visitors can tuck into coronation chicken burgers from the Barley Mow, ice-cream from The Connaught Patisserie, drinks at The Twenty Two’s Pimm’s bar, and cocktails from Mr Fogg’s Grey Goose truck.

Worn Again at Selfridges

Selfridges wants 45% of its transactions to involve circular products by 2030. To help it hit that goal, it’s created the Worn Again initiative, which embraces second-hand shopping, swapping, repairing, upcycling and trading across its stores in London, Manchester and Birmingham. Swing by the flagship store on Oxford Street to check out its charity car boot sale, outdoor vintage fair and ‘Stock Market’ in the Corner Shop, where items can be valued, traded, repaired or recycled. We’ve got our eye on the upcycled retro jackets.

Swift Soho

Regular SLMan readers will know we rate Swift for its inventive cocktails and slick bars, so we were excited to hear the Soho outpost will launch a new drinks menu on Friday. Each one will be served with a postcard that has a connection to each member of the Swift team. Details will remain under wraps until the weekend but we’re expecting good things – and there are also some new additions to its extensive whisky list.

L.E.J London Pop-Up

L.E.J London is the cool London menswear brand reinventing casualwear by applying the kind of precision engineering usually reserved for formalwear. It has opened a pop-up on Savile Row to showcase its spring/summer collection alongside a few one-off pieces. Shoppers will find denim, quality cotton shirts, utility jackets and matching trousers, as well as a great selection of accessories for off-duty looks, like caps and bags.

The Coronation of King Charles III and The Queen Consort will take place on Saturday 6th May. Mark the occasion in style at Stanley’s off the King’s Road in Chelsea with its spacious outdoor courtyard and bar, restaurant, and orangery-style dining area. On Saturday diners can watch the action on TV screens on the terrace, which will be decked out with bunting and decorations. Order dishes like West Country lamb with asparagus and grape sauce; skate wing with chorizo butter sauce; and poached rhubarb with whipped custard and meringue – then toast the new head of state with a ‘King Charles Negroni’.

The Do Good Pub by Tesco

Tesco is encouraging the nation to ‘do good, by going to the pub’ with its first ever public house in Farringdon. Open from Thursday 4th to Friday 5th May, The King in the Castle will offer a themed menu featuring products from the supermarket’s limited-edition Coronation food range. All proceeds will go to the supermarket’s charity partner, The Prince’s Trust, which was founded by the King to support young people across the UK to build the confidence and skills to find employment. Dishes include ‘Camilla’s King Prawn Curry’, ‘The Prince’s Crust Pie’ and a ‘trifle-inspired’ bellini. Book a table at the link below.

Prada Caffè at Harrods

Following on from the Dior Café and Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama pop-up, Harrods has opened the Prada Caffè on its ground floor. Until the end of the year, guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and aperitivi amid the café’s mint green walls and black-and-white chequered flooring. The menu includes Italian brunch dishes, cakes and pastries, sandwiches and more substantial mains like ricotta and spinach cannelloni, fish of the day with sun-dried tomatoes and capers, and saffron and parmesan risotto. Come evening, there will be cocktails and Italian wines.
