Celebrate UK Coffee Week at the Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe

Regular readers will know how much SEEN loves Bankside. Museums, restaurants and great views abound next to the river. Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe is nestled in the heart of Southwark, home to some of the UK’s best coffee roasters and producers. Where better to celebrate UK Coffee Week?

Swan’s own coffee comes from the very highly regarded Extract Coffee and is the perfect breakfast accompaniment, whether you’re hosting an elegant morning meeting or a long and leisurely brunch affair. Swan’s picturesque dining rooms boast panoramic cityscape views and are the perfect places to enjoy a cup of coffee alongside a selection of tantalising breakfast dishes from Swan’s esteemed Executive Chef Allan Pickett, such Swan’s signature Breakfast Brioche Bun (Cumberland sausage, maple-cured streaky bacon, Legbar fried egg), Swan’s Homemade Muesli (ancient grains, seeds, dried cranberries and apricots, coconut or Greek yoghurt, berry compote) or a Green Machine smoothie.

A short walk from London Bridge and Blackfriars stations, Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe features a large open plan bar downstairs, and restaurant upstairs, furnished throughout in an elegantly simple and comfortable style. The venue showcases the best of classic British dishes, with a contemporary twist.

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.
