What To Do This Weekend 13.08.21

Wondering what to do this weekend? SLMan has you covered. From music festivals and craft beer extravaganzas to a new private fitness option, here’s what to get stuck into…

TRY A NEW WORKOUT: Elysium

Elysium is a new collection of private micro gyms that’s getting ready to spread fast across the capital. Currently in Aldgate and soon to launch in Seven Dials, it offers quiet spaces for fitness enthusiasts and personal trainers – with all the benefits of a high-end gym. If lockdowns have given you a taste for private workouts, you can now meet your PT at Elysium and get to work on the kind of state-of-the-art equipment you probably didn’t have at home.

GO SHOPPING: Dunno.Curated

Dunno.Curated is a new independent store offering vintage fashion and streetwear. With sustainability at its core, it sources designer products and pairs them with celebrated vintage classics. It also wants to help customers curate their own looks based on the eternal Parisian style rule that you must look at an outfit holistically and not just as the sum of individual pieces. Any customer who curates and buys their own outfit will get 20% off their next purchase – and a polaroid picture will be displayed on the Dunno Head to Toe Hall of Fame.

READ THIS: Sinatra & Me: In The Wee Small Hours 

Every detail of Frank Sinatra’s life is captivating: his career, his romantic relationships, his personality, his businesses, his style. But he’s also had an elusive, hard-to-pin-down quality. Until now. Tony Oppedisano was Sinatra’s closest confidant and a member of his management team. His new book is an intimate look at an idol, drawing on the thousands of late-night conversations he shared with Ol’ Blue Eyes. Sinatra’s complex relationship with his father, his conflicts with record companies, his carousing in Vegas, his love affairs with some of the most beautiful women of his era, and his triumphs on some of the world’s biggest stages are all here.
