Have Your Pancake and Eat it: Shrove Tuesday at aqua shard

What better combination could there be than luxurious pancakes, a cocktail and a stunning view over the city? SEEN hears that you can have all this and Instagram possibilities aplenty with aqua shard’s extravagant and highly photogenic pancake dessert: the Blueberry ‘mille feuille’ Pancake Cake. Served with blueberry ripple ice cream, maple syrup jelly and – in a delicious twist – topped off with a crisp rasher of syrup-glazed pancetta.


While you’re at it, you might as well go the whole hog and have one of aqua shard‘s unique pancake cocktails: a sweet combination of dark rum, maple syrup, and chocolate vermouth garnished with a caramel basket and mini-pancake. The dessert is £9, the cocktail £16. Go on, treat yourself. SEEN certainly will be. Pancake day comes but once a year, after all.

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.
