Londoners use graffiti to tackle UKIP slogans

Posted at 4:30 pm, September 30, 2014 in News
cath graffiti

I’m no activist. I have been on two marches in my life. So when the alarm went off on Sunday, I rolled over back to sleep. Tipsily plotting to graffiti a UKIP poster is fun. Being shocked awake at 5.30am not so much. Then my friend texted: ‘are you here yet?’ So I guiltily cycled to Old Street, past slinky foxes owning the backstreets, to be ladder-holder and looker-outer on a four-woman mission.

Ape & Bird: find out what we made of Russell Norman’s revamped pub

Posted at 3:15 pm, September 30, 2014 in Food & Drink
ape & bird

Russell Norman – ‘The Restaurant Man’ of the recent BBC Two series – doesn’t always have the magic touch. His Ape & Bird gastropub in Cambridge Circus opened to a slow clap of approval back in December 2013; after we visited it three times, our critics awarded it a mere two stars out of five. A new chef was hired to buck things up a few months later. But in July Ape & Bird closed, was repainted outside, given a spring clean inside and had a pizza oven installed. The British menu has been abandoned in favour of a tried and tested Polpo approach, with pizza. But how is it now?

Has this turned its fortunes around? Read our review of Ape & Bird to find out, or take a look at what we think of Polpo Soho.

A Mayfair penthouse has become the most expensive home sold in the UK – and it’s not even been built yet. The Clarges Estate pad is costing one buyer a ‘substantial margin’ more than the previous record of £5,000 per square foot (which was also set in Mayfair – no surprise there).

Posted at 5:30 pm, September 29, 2014 in Fun London

What did you see on your way to work this morning? The clammy walls of the Central line? A grumbling commuter with a toothpaste stain on his tie? Last week, Central Saint Martins worker Martha Bellingham saw THIS dog bounding through a fountain near King’s Cross. And, while it might not be the most beautiful or dramatic sight, it certainly beat 99.9 percent of commute views.

Rubber-faced sweat-machine Lee Evans played his first London solo show for three years last week, settling in to the O2 for a six-night stint. Time Out was there – luckily, not seated in the splash zone. So was it a funny beast? Or all bark and no bite?
