Love him or loathe him, James Bond aka the one and only 007 has been a beacon of style, sophistication and fatal attraction for fifty years. To mark Bond’s momentous anniversary the Barbican Centre is exposing all the hard work that goes into being so suave. ‘Designing 007’ documents the style journey from 1962’s ‘Dr No’ to this year’s ‘Skyfall’ through costumes, gadgets, special effects and everything else that earns you a license to kill. As well as a wardrobe full of the best designer clobber, you’ll also be invited to have a cocktail (shaken or otherwise) at the Martini bar for the real 007 experience. Now, that’s the kind of sizzle that makes it our pick from this week’s Time Out Hot List. Carly-Ann Clements
