Ballet, festivals, tequila, cocktails, vegan streetfood and Scandi –Mexican tacos. That's quite a line-upMore
OK people, art just got cool. Like, walking-through-a-room-of-mysterious-floating-orbs cool. Like, ballet-performers-actually-dancing-WITH-the-orbs-to-a-soundtrack-by-Warp-Records cool. And it's happening at the Roundhouse's new installation Human +/-, featuring the latest work of immersive wonderment by the team behind the Rain Room and curated by renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor. Surrounding you with flying spheres and sonic soundscapes, it'll make you question the nature of what makes something 'alive'. Or maybe just say, 'oh my God that's COOL'. Either way works for us.

Rare are the times that you can drink in NYC's Dead Rabbit – twice named World's Best Bar – right here in London. Rarer still are the times that you'll find a rowdy Irish pub inside the super-luxe Claridge's hotel. But rejoice, Irish coffee-loving friends, for that time is NOW. For one week only, Claridge's Bar has been transformed to become Dead Rabbit's London outpost, complete with wood-pannelled walls, Guinness kegs and raucous piano. The drinks list is just as authentic, with signature DR serves such as the Magdalene (cognac, Laurent Perrier champagne, cherry, vanilla, poppy seed, apple and lemon juice) and the Psycho Killer (whisky, Campari, white cacao, banana liqueur and – gee gods! – absinthe), as well as its famed Irish coffee. It's official: this Dead Rabbit is very much alive and kicking.
Until 22 Aug
