WHAT'S ON IN LONDON IN OCTOBER

29.09.17
THE CAFFINE FIX: INTERNATIONAL COFFEE DAY

The 1st of the month marks International Coffee Day, a great excuse to indulge in a pastime loved by many-a London local and an all-round enjoyable way to spend a Sunday, quite frankly. But whilst we’re sure you’ve got your favourite coffee spot bookmarked for a personal celebration, it’s the Tate’s Coffee Gender Equality Project that we want to highlight here. If you’re planning a stroll around any of the galleries in the coming month, you’ll find coffee from around the world, sourced seasonally and chosen to support fair gender representation and social impact on the coffee supply chain. Good quality coffee, beautiful artwork and a good cause? There’s nothing not to love about this venture.

THE DINNER SPOT: OLLE, MAYFAIR

New to the London restaurant landscape, Olle’s concept is based around an interactive dining experience and it presents Korean BBQ food in a richly furnished space on the corner of Shaftsbury Avenue. Guests order fresh cuts of meat and seafood from the menu and have full control of how it’s served as it’s brought to the table for cooking. A carefully chosen drinks menu features authentic Korean beers as well as wine and soft drinks.

THE EXHIBIT: INTIMATE MODERN AT coya MAYFAIR

Coya is primarily known for its luxurious yet contemporary approach to dining and it’s a favourite amongst London’s most stylish, so it seems only fitting that it’s set to host a series of work by photographer, Tyler Shields in line with the launch of this year’s Frieze Art Fair. The exhibition, Provoateur, will showcase some of the artist’s most well-recognised, sometimes controversial work. If you’re not able to make it to the venue itself, The Intimate Modern Gallery in Shepherd Market will also be displaying a series of complementary imagery.

THE HALLOWEEN PARTY: THE SKY GARDEN

Halloween is the perfect excuse for a themed party and the Sky Garden are throwing the mother of all themed parties on the 27th October. The bar menu will be revamped with exclusive food and drink recipes and the space will be transformed into a disco with a live set by The Soul Jets. There’s also set to be a make-up artist or two on hand to touch up your look or completely re-design your face in line with the celebration. Best dressed prize is a bottle of champagne. Book tickets now to avoid disappointment – the iconic location within which this event is set is sure to garner a wealth of interest.

THE WORKOUT: 1REBEL

If you’re looking for a workout that will push you to your limit and a changing room that’s better equipped than your own home then 1Rebel could be the one for you. They studio specialises in 3 very specific classes; Rumble (boxing), Reshape (interval training on a treadmill and with weights) and Ride (spin). At £20 per session it’s not the cheapest workout available in London but we defy anyone who gives it a go to leave without mentally planning their next session.

THE NEW LAUNCH: MUSIC NIGHTS AT the K BAR

Established Kensington night spot, The K Bar is launching a new Thursday night mainstay in collaboration with The Botanist. The K Bar Sessions will welcome new music acts spanning various genres each week and guests will be offered the chance to order from a bespoke, gin-based cocktail list. The ideal date night spot or the perfect place to catch up with friends you’ve not seen in a while, secure a Thursday date in the diary and turn up to embrace whichever up and coming performer is on the cards for the night.
