The Pagination: a New Gastronomic Venue at Canary Wharf

The 2016 Christmas season witnesses the opening of The Pagination, a much-welcomed bar and restaurant at Canary Wharf. London loves to embrace new dining destinations. This new all-day drinking and dining establishment has arrived to bring a touch of glamour to Cabot Square. It’s the perfect place to have early-morning meetings, power lunches, late-night dinners, cocktails on the beautiful alfresco terrace overlooking the River Thames, and much more, such as masterclasses and private events.

With industrial-inspired details, exposed metal and soft handwoven textures, The Pagination is London’s latest addition from bar and restaurant experts Drake & Morgan, the group behind high-profile venues such as Parlour, The Drift (SEEN has been here – it’s gorgeous) and The Folly. It welcomes customers all day long, especially in those moments when you need to escape from busy London life and relax while having a hearty breakfast, a light lunch, a delicious Afternoon Tea or just a glass of Dom Perignon Brut.

The all-day menu includes fresh seasonal dishes, from small plates ideal for sharing, such as mezze board (bulgur wheat salad, hummus, baba ghanoush, harissa, pickled chillies & olives); and mains such as crispy duck salad with cucumber and peanuts; halloumi burger with hummus, red peppers and mushroom; and grilled salmon with a pecan crunch and lemon dressing.

The cocktail and wine list is impressive, offering over 20 wines by the glass, including exclusive sparkling wines and champagne, white, rosé and red wines, as well as ciders and beers, from all over the world: from New Zealand to South Africa, passing through Italy, Spain and France all the way to the US, Mexico, Chile and Argentina, creating a world-wide tour for the dedicated oenophile. The Pagination seems destined to make an impression in London’s drinking and dining scene this winter.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
