As is tradition at Queen of Hoxton, the bar and eatery will be opening up their rooftop throughout winter, with this year’s theme being Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Vine covered stairs lead to the giant keyhole door which opens onto the mezzanine rooftop decorated to look like a tree house. Expect hanging clocks and mirrors to compliment the gingerbread inspired bar where you’ll find a fairytale concoction of cocktails from Gardeners Grog to The Big Bad Buttered Rum. Don’t forget to sample their menu of delicious dishes from pulled slow roast lamb to chicken schnitzel.

Location: The Queen of Hoxton, 1-5 Curtain Road, EC2A 3JX
Opening Dates: 22nd October- end of March
Opening Times: Monday- Saturday 4pm-10pm

Dissatisfied with the traditional layouts of an office workspace, The Office Group have been creating small, co-working spaces in 29 buildings around London. They have now launched a pop-up in Old Street Station to offer commuters the chance to experience collaborative working and have a place to work for free. With coffee and snacks to keep people sustained throughout the day, this pop-up is all about creating an innovative space for a community of workers.

Back in 2013, Matt Nguyen used his artistic and illustrative skills to set up what has now become the iconic arts, prints and gifts brand, Jolly Awesome. Based in London, his work has been inspired by British and American pop culture, to offer humorous and unique products that both satirise and celebrate the best in English culture. For the first time, Jolly Awesome will be taking over a concession space in Topshop selling lots of exclusive new products on the ground floor, which will be the perfect gift, or a treat for yourself.
