Drinks and dragons, fashion and festivals, pizzas and portraits: your weekend, sortedMore
You know those people who, when you ask them where they got their dress/bag/furniture from, go 'Oh this? It's a flea-market find…'? Well, this weekend is your chance to BECOME ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. Because the Big London Flea is landing at Epic Dalston, bringing with it more than 50 vintage stalls, countless treasures and, sure, plenty of entertaining kitsch tat. Go, get rummaging and practise your best 'Oh this…?' humblebrag.

Big London Flea, Epic Dalston, 13-15 Stoke Newington Road, N16 8BH
Now, we're not in the habit of wasting cocktails (seriously, we will wrestle the barman who takes our glass a drop too soon). But at Nine Lives, Bermondsey's new no-waste cocktail bar, they've taken the idea way, way further. Their Loop menu of cocktails uses ingredients from the upstairs garden, ingredients are repurposed to reduce waste, disposables are removed from the bar's operation (plastic straws? Pfft, here they're made of bamboo) and even the staff uniforms were discovered in London's vintage shops. We like to think we're saving the planet, one sip at a time. Heroic.
Nine Lives, 8 Holyrood Street, London, SE1 2EL
