Late night parties are a thing of the past as London’s movers and shakers are taking their weekend frolics into the early hours. With the launch of APM at Zinc, a nightclub located at the top of London’s iconic Centre Point building, opulent partying reaches new heights – 31 floors above ground to be precise!
‘Four’, the ‘World’s best food magazine’ with past links to Heston Blumenthal and many a celebrity chef, has collaborated with APM to offer the finest in seasonal breakfast delights. You can revel in deep house music, accompanied by sumptuous cocktails and a four course breakfast banquet all completely guilt free; part of your money will be donated to FOUR foundation to fight hunger worldwide.
So Saunter down to 101 New Oxford Street every Friday and Saturday 2.30am-7am and graze, dance and watch the sunrise perched high in the sky whilst the city sleeps, cocktail in hand…
For those more partial to a tranquil evening excursion, why not pop down to St Martin’s Courtyard this October for a three night festival extravaganza of silent cinema. Hollywood’s most enduring heartthrobs, past and present, will be starring in some of the nation’s most memorable films, all being showcased from a full sized cinema screen under the romantic setting of the moon and stars. Choose from the following dates and Hollywood hunks:
This is not just any cinema experience though; attendees will be plied with gourmet popcorn and sweets so you can snack whilst you swoon. Cosy blankets and bubbles will also be provided to ensure glamour and indulgence ensues in bucket loads.
Where can I get tickets I hear you cry? They will be allocated through an online prize draw and given out a week prior to screening. Go to www.stmartinscourtyard.co.uk for your chance to grace this oh so eloquent event.
In other news, vivacious model and eco-warrior extraordinaire Lily Cole has launched yet another collection for Sky Rain Forest Rescue, for whom she is an ambassador. Following her sell-out jewellery collection last year, consisting of Amazonian wild-rubber-only pieces, Lily made the formally feckless material effortlessly cool, and she hasn’t stopped there.
Miss Cole has collaborated with Veja to launch a collection of quirky kicks in this season’s hottest colour palettes, with designs celebrating the smaller flora and fauna of the rainforest, inspired by Lily’s recent adventures in the Amazon!
The limited collection will be available to buy online and through concession stores in TopShop and Selfridges in London and Manchester. Starting at £55 pounds, it would be rude not to grab yourself a piece of the eco-chic action…
Affordable, stylish and philanthropic? We’ll take them in every colour please.
