Look at this photograph. Beautiful, right? Now look again: only this time knowing that it's actually a painting. Yes, REALLY. And it's just one of the extraordinary, hyper-realistic pieces by NYC-based artist Yigal Ozeri that are now on show at the Opera Gallery on New Bond Street. Painted using thousands of tiny brushstrokes, the works blur the line between fantasy and reality: at once idealised yet gritty, dreamlike yet true to life. Go, see, and never again be impressed by any Instagram filter.

So there's a secret Scandinavian rooftop bar on Oxford Street. And it has a NEGRONI VENDING MACHINE... Hang on, wait! Don't tear up to the top of every shop along there – all shall be revealed. What you need to do is pitch up at the door at 535 Oxford Street, follow the staircase and find yourself in an oasis of Scandi cool, featuring nature-reserve styling, heated seats (handy in British summer), a cocktail bar and a restaurant made from upcycled windows (of course) serving up international street food. But most importantly, you'll find that machine, where you deposit tokens to dispense your own Negronis and Old Fashioneds. Now that is progress.
Until late September
