What To Do This Weekend 09.08.23


Wondering what to do over the weekend? SLMan has you covered. From restaurant collabs to an immersive boxing show, here’s what to get stuck into…

Grab A Slice

Crisp Pizza

Finally, Hammersmith has a decent pizza joint. You might have seen Crisp Pizza doing the rounds on social media, but if you’re not already familiar, these are pizzas worth travelling for. Carl McCluskey took over The Chancellors pub a few years ago and has turned it into a destination for pizzas that are cross between a classic Neapolitan and NYC pie. Choose from toppings like pepperoni, buffalo mozzarella, mushroom, parmesan and ricotta. Diners can pre-book dough through the online ordering system which regularly sells out days in advance.

25 Crisp Road, Hammersmith, W6 9RL

Let Loose

One Hundred Shoreditch

Hotel One Hundred Shoreditch is the place for cocktails and a boogie out East. From this week, it reintroduces Lobby Lates every Thursday and Friday, featuring a roster of DJs and £10 cocktails to kick off the weekend. This Friday, Donnie Sunshine will set the vibe with house and disco remixes. Plus, for the next six weeks, the hotel’s rooftop bar will host ‘Mr Lyan & Friends’ with mixologist takeovers each week. On Sunday 6th and Monday 7th August, Mr Lyan himself is laying on cocktails from his Lyaness bar.

Book Ahead

Rumble in the Jungle Rematch: George Foreman vs Muhammad Ali

One of boxing’s greatest ever fights - the 1974 ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ between George Foreman and Muhammad Ali – will be recreated in a new immersive experience at Dock X in Canada Water. The show doesn’t open until next month, but it’s set to sell out quickly. The legendary scrap will be brought to life by a team of actors, with state-of-the-art lighting, live music, and food and drink to create authentic smells and tastes of the time. Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu, director of the recent play For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide, is behind the staging, so we’re expecting great things. Tickets start from £69.50.

Retail Park, Unit 1 Canada Water, Surrey Quays Road, SE16 2XU; from 16th September

Try New Flavours

Morley's x Heinz at The Standard

South London’s best chicken shop chain has teamed up with Heinz for a pop-up at The Standard hotel. At the Standard’s ground-floor Double Standard restaurant until 3rd September, diners can try Morley’s decades-old chicken recipe with new Heinz sauces. Choose from fried chicken, popcorn chicken, cauliflower bites, hot wings or chicken drumsticks topped with caviar – served with waffles or fries. Heinz has created a fried chicken sauce and a truffle mayo. Leave room for desserts like caramelised apple donuts or chocolate sundae sprinkled with… ketchup sherbet.
