Get a taste of Germany’s most famous festivals in a picturesque London location. Overlooking the river and Canary Wharf, a large tent with adjacent beer garden has been set up selling authentic German beer and specialities such as sausages, sauerkraut and pretzels. The whole experience is complete with cute little souvenir shops and a funfair. The festival is on every Thursday to Sunday until 22nd October. Ticket prices start from £5 and can be bought here.
Everyone on the East Side of London knows that the question of where to go to eat, have a beer, or go out, ends with the answer… Hoxton. Sometimes it is a lot of fun to go from one place to another, meet some friends there, and there, and some new people everywhere. That’s what Hoxton all about, isn’t it?
For some, it is. For ClubCat it is important to feel like home. In a sense that all your friends are in one place, you can all have some food, one or more drinks and then party till the dawn.
Try to search ‘The Lion & Lamb’ in Google, Facebook or anywhere on the internet. The place has a minimal publicity apart the events calendar and the location. Simply because it doesn’t need it. The word of mouth is the best promotion, and my, oh my, people talk about this place!
Being and empty space in an awesome area, over the last few years it underwent a lot of changes and had different purposes: an art gallery, an East-end boozer, and an underground club. The Lion & Lamb now has it all.
Over a year ago, a group of London-based, experienced, modern-thinking promoters, DJ’s, producers opened up this place to hide from the commercialised Shoreditch. Its purpose is to unite the community of the artists. And… the music!
Lion & Lamb is set to become a favourite destination for creative people and music lovers in the area. The plans are big. For now, let’s keep its secrecy and talk about what’s on.

See you there!
Yesterday we’ve been to the Pig & Butcher in Angel to try their famous Sunday Roast and we can honestly say we’ve been blown away. The pub is known for their amazing cuisine and the roast was indeed marvellous. Everything on that plate was just super delicious, from the high-quality and super tasty meat to the roasted potatoes and vegetables bursting with flavour and the massive Yorkshire pudding.The portions were so big that we couldn’t fit in a dessert – which is a shame because they were probably just as good as the main!
Although the pub was buzzing with customers the service was quick and very friendly. We were lucky enough to get a table in the back of the restaurant where it’s a lot quieter and less busy than in the front. Our meal was accompanied by a couple of beers from their outstanding selection of ales and lagers and we would have loved sampling more drinks – if we hadn’t been so stuffed from the meal! There’s not much left to say apart from we’ll definitely be back and can seriously recommend this pub!
We all know the concept of the ‘British Summer’. The first recommendation would be not to look at the weather forecast or plan an expensive, long holiday to the South of the island. However, a short weekend getaway might be just what you need! Even a few hours of sunshine can be enough to treat that pale skin… The smell and the sound of crashing waves – the much-needed remedy to relieve the stress.
Show me one Londoner that hasn’t been to Brighton and I will give you five reasons why one should rather explore the coast a little bit more and go to Bournemouth!
Situated only a couple of hours drive from London, Bournemouth offers one of the nicest sandy beaches within the short reach from the capital, together with a vibrant nightlife, plenty of shopping centres and boutiques, plus, other exciting activities like a chance to fly across the sea from the famous pier.
ClubCat Tup* Thursday 31st of August to Sunday 3rd of September Bournemouth is hosting annual the UK’s biggest air festival. FREE! Fours days of action in the air, on lan and at sea!
Find all the info here: https://bournemouthair.co.uk
How To Get There
The faster and most effortless way to commute not only in Lonon but also to travel around the country is by trains. Jump on South West Railway heading towards Weymouth. 2hours, 14 stops and you here!
While the prices travelling by train might bite, the bus is a more affordable option. You can reach the coast only for £15 and the journey takes only a little bit longer than 2 hours and 20 minutes.
If you have a car – great! 108 miles is not a long
distance to mission with a car and you will have a priceless opportunity to explore the coast even more! For example, you can reach the famous Durdler Door – the beach is recommended by the Marine Conservation Society for excellent water quality, also, for its breathtaking scenery.
ClubCat Tip* if you travel by the public transport, do not get tempted getting around the town by taxes. Everything is closer than it looks like!
Where To Stay
Carrington House Hotel can definitely brighten up your gateway and there are the reasons why…
First, make sure you hunt the best value deal, recommended through http://www.bookings.com. ClubCat was lucky enough to get one for 35£ instead of £160!
To check the quality of the service, always add a request. This time, we requested for some rose petals on the bed and a picture of Jonny Depp. Did not get disappointed! Not only we found that but also a cheap bottle of bubbles. However, very much appreciated. It is all about attention to details. The hotel has a beer garden, the ‘chill out’ area with table tennis an indoors swimming pool. In the evenings hosting bingo nights and old-school dances. 10-minute walk from the beach and 15min from the town centre. Recommended!
There are child-friendly and dog-friendly beaches, beach facilities for the disabled, water
sport areas, conservation areas and beach sport areas. Walking down the beach from the Carrington House Hotel towards the Bournemouth Pier, you can see areas deserted as almost images from the movie Robinson Crusoe. But the dream is interfered by the sound a little colourful train that you can jump on that would take u all the way to the centre. Then there is kiters, jumping through the waves. Further down, more and more groups of young people, singing, having bbq, playing volleyball, beach football… Some huge Indian family having a picnic. Crowds of people curiously standing around the fish shacks and ice cream stands. People flying from the pier to the beach down the cable. And it goes on and on!
What To Do If It Rains
Try the lovely old-school arcade which is for everyone: whether you would like to practise skiing on the Alpine Racers, race each other on the Mario Karts, or try to win a Minion toy or one of our bespoke Bournemouth Bears from one of the toy crane machines. This is an ideal place to step out of the sunshine into a family friendly air conditioned amusement arcade. Or hide from the seaside rain!
Where To Eat
If you want a quick and full meal after a long day at the beach site, the famous Harry Ramsden fish and chips is always a good idea. Big portonions, good price and great quality.
Bournemouth is much more than fish’n’chips wrapped in yesterday’s newspaper.
If you feel like something more fancy, for the very best fine dining in Bournemouth, simply head to The Edge. From the moment you arrive and take the glass lift to the restaurant entrance you will fall in love with its glamour. But when you walk into the restaurant and set your eyes on those views, you will not be able to wait until your meal arrives. The a la carte dinner menu is spectacular and perfect for a date night watching the sunset over the ocean. And the food… is yummy!Where To Start Your Night Out
Smokin’ Aces is the place. The ‘come one, come all’ ethos of the place secures it as one of the top bars to visit in Bournemouth. With no entry fee, no dress code and no VIP areas, everyone who walks through the doors of the cocktail bar and whiskey lounge is welcome to make it their own. Adding to it’s niche qualities, Smokin’ Aces offers bespoke cocktails to every individual – it’s as easy as telling them your favourite spirits and flavours! That’s top class. Enjoy these along side the live bands and DJ lineups.
ClubCat Tip* 31st of August Smokin’ Aces hosting Ant Lewis Live Set show.
After one or few drinks, all the plans are irrelevant. Just go with the flow.
Since June 2015, Craving Coffee in Tottenham is inviting the best street food places in London to open 3 night pop-ups in their cafe.

Familia returns to EGG tomorrow night and the line up is nothing but impressive. Senso Sounds head-honcho Oliver Huntemann – one of my longtime personal favourites – will be joined by Brazilian rising star Victor Ruiz who is coming to London for his very first UK gig.
The Terrace will be headlined by Drumcode’s Timmo, another new face that’s promising fresh sounds and driving beats. The Loft will be taken over by Thesaurus with Critical Damage, VanDi and Alek Mater.
Altogether expect a lush techno bonanza in one of London’s most acclaimed venues. Tickets are available here.
For a whole lot of reasons this pub is one of my favourite places in London – located close to Waterloo and London Bridge station it’s always in easy reach and a great destination after showing the city to visiting friends, the burgers are absolute top class and the best in London (probably among the best in the world!) and if that wasn’t enough already they also serve quality beers and ciders – and the taps are right on your table so you can pour your own pint! Furthermore the staff at the Thirsty Bear pub are always nothing but lovely and very helpful, there are massive screens showing the footy (and various other sports) and the usual pub games, table football, pool and dart, are not missing either. This place is perfect to stop by at after a sightseeing tour or a stroll along the Southbank for a nice, filling burger and some great beers among friends. There really isn’t much more to say apart from – go and check out what all the hype is about!
