House of Peroni – Amare l’Italia (For the Love of Italy) – at Proud East

SEEN adores all things Italian. We are looking forward tremendously to the celebration of Italian culture shortly to open at Proud East in Haggerston, just in time (hopefully) for the gloriously sunny days of early Summer.

SEEN adores all things Italian. We are looking forward tremendously to the celebration of Italian culture shortly to open at Proud East in Haggerston, just in time (hopefully) for the gloriously sunny days of early Summer. Even if it rains, we shall spirit ourselves away to the light and sun of Italy, distracting ourselves with delicious food and drink, fashion, flavours, traditions, icons in what promises to be ‘a stunning experiential space’.

La Bottega

Private Dining Area

Proud East has collaborated with Italian creatives who are the future in Italian style. Fashion designer Margherita Maccapani Missoni will preside over the residency’s style for the duration, whilst Master of Taste Francesco Mazzei and Master Mixologist, the award-winning Simone Caporale will shape the residency’s flavourful dining experiences.

As we luxuriate in Margherita’s elegant spaces, we will be sipping delicious Peroni Nastro Azzuro-infused cocktails created by Simone. We will certainly be trying the menu of Cicchetti (bar snacks) and La Colazione Pigra (Italian brunch) followed by delicious gelato. There will be a series of ticketed events during the residency, to include a floating Negroni bar on the iconic Regent’s Canal, pasta making, and a beautiful Italian green house created by Margherita where you can enjoy an exclusive cocktail.

There is even an opportunity to experience a proper Italian family dinner, which is to say a five-course feast. A little slice of Italian heaven on the cool and groovy streets of London’s East End.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
