What To Do This Weekend 05.07.23


Wondering what to do over the weekend? SLMan has you covered. From new street-food openings to a film festival, here’s what to get stuck into…



You might already know Brigadiers as a cool City spot for authentic Indian dishes, great cocktails and live sports. It’s just installed five self-serve taps so guests can pour themselves a Cobra lager or Kushti Pilsner, as well as ready-to-serve cocktails like espresso martinis, old fashioneds and negronis. Book a table to watch Wimbledon on the big screens and tuck into top-drawer masala scallops, chicken tikka skewers and more.
