The cocktails sound delicious: Pink Bikini – Cherry, passion fruit, vanilla, and pineapple or a Spanish Town – Cointreau, and orgeat syrup to name but two.

Not only will guests get to tap their feet to the sound of reggae whilst savouring unique dishes, diners will also be treated to a stand-up appearance by popular comedian White Yardie.

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.
