FOOD: Barrio’s Taco Takeover
While tacos are undoubtedly brilliant (tortilla, chilli, cheese – what’s not to love?), they’re not exactly thought of as a gourmet item. But that is ALL about to change. Yep, following in the footsteps of the burger and the BBQ rib, the taco is about to get a mouth-watering makeover of its own – courtesy of Barrio’s Taco Takeover. Each month, one of London’s most exciting chefs will reinvent the dish with their own unique and unexpected combinations, starting with Brit street-food stars The Roadery. Braised lamb belly, wild nettle salsa verde, apricot hot sauce – no really, what’s not to love?
From 4 May Barrio Soho, 6 Poland St, W1F 8PS; and Barrio Shoreditch, 141-143 Shoreditch High St, E1 6JE
EVENT: SS Atlantica Party
Hello, sailors! (And landlubbers on the lookout for a good time.) It’s all aboard The SS Atlantica, which is setting sail this Saturday from that famous port of, um, London. But this pop-up party isn’t letting a little thing like being landlocked get in the way of its champagne-fuelled voyage, oh no. Taking Thames cruiser The Silver Sturgeon and transforming it into a 1930s art-deco ocean liner, this night promises vintage live bands, floorshows, cabaret acts and dancing as you glide down the river the glamorous way. Expect lavish costumes, even-more-lavish cocktails – and maybe even the chance to find your own Leo on deck.
29 April; £35 SS Atlantica, Savoy Pier, Victoria Embankment, WC2N 6ND
POP-UP: Secret Yoga Club
Serenity is about to get a LOT more social, thanks to the return of Secret Yoga Club’s Supperclub Sundays. As the name would suggest, this occurs on a Sunday (the first one of every month, specifically) and involves yoga (an hour-long Zen-out taught by a changing roster of top teachers) and a post-class supper (a three-course veggie banquet, no less). However, as the name would NOT suggest, it’s no secret that you need to get yourself along to Bootstrap Company in Dalston to join in the ommmmmm. And then the yuuuuuum…
1 May; pre-booking essential 18 Ashwin St, London E8 3DL
