Scallopdogs, juleps and igloos: it’s LondOntheInside’s five favourite openings for February

Posted at 2:45 pm, February 3, 2014 in Food & Drink, Fun London

Fishbone scallopdog

So long January, smell ya later! 2014 is officially off to a flying start and shows no signs of slowing down. But what can we look forward to this month? Our pals LondonOnTheInside have got a few ideas…

FISHBone, Kensington (above), opens Feb 1
‘When we heard about the ‘Scallopdog’  (yes, that is a scallop hot dog) we knew we’d have to check out FISHBone. It’s located in the private dining room at Kensington Place and features all things fishy and naughty coke floats. We’re in! Opens Feb 1.’

The Whip, Mayfair, opens Feb 6
‘A cocktail bar dedicated to championing the julep? We’re liking the sound of this. We’re also digging the horse racing puns. The cocktail bar will also serve small plates with seasonal juleps to enjoy on the furniture covered in jockey silks. Gallop on down there.’

Igloo Shard

World’s Highest Urban Ice Bar, The Shard (above), opens Feb 12
‘Right, here’s one for all you single people! How about being take up the Shard this Valentine’s day? Doingsomething are doing something pretty special over at The View from The Shard, setting up a dating event with the World’s Highest Urban Ice Bar. Wait, what did you think we meant?!’

The Fable

The Fable, Farringdon, opens Feb 17
‘We’re big fans of the Drake and Morgan mini chain so we’re expecting quirky things from The Fable, a joint where everything tells a story, when it opens this month. We’re already hearing tales of roll-top baths filled with flowers, a wishing well and vintage typewriters. Sounds magical.’


Warpaint, Koko Camden, Feb 18
‘Warpaint’s debut album rocked back in 2010 with their indie-tinged free form experimentalism and we couldn’t be more excited to experience their new material live. Warpaint are back and everyone’s talking about it – you’d be ‘The Fool’ to miss this show. Sorry, we couldn’t resist!’
