The Formentera Terrace at aqua nueva: Ibiza’s Bohemian Sister Comes to London 

If, like SEEN, you won’t be venturing abroad this year then fear not, this summer, contemporary Spanish restaurant aqua nueva will transport you to the Balearic Islands as Ibiza’s hippy sister, Formentera, comes to London. In partnership with Cîroc Vodka, aqua nueva’s Formentera Terrace brings the island’s relaxed vibe to its Regent Street rooftop for the summer season.

Architect Mehrnoosh Khadivi has designed an oasis overlooking London’s urban jungle, channelling the chilled-out atmosphere for which Formentera is so famed. The terrace is a flush of greenery and floral displays, against the sandy tones of rattan screens and colourful planters.

A new addition to the terrace this year is the alcoholic dessert bar, a pretty, parasoled bike, which offers two flavours of Cîroc Vodka sorbets. Perfect for lounging with a Cîroc cocktail on sunny afternoons or dining alfresco on long, balmy evenings, the Formentera Terrace is sure to be one of the West End’s most talked about destinations this summer. aqua nueva’s Formentera Terrace is open from now until the end of the summer.

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.
