A Snowy Weekend With TSL

When you’ve had enough of sledging and snowball fights it’s time to retreat somewhere warm and cosy. If you’re struggling to decide how to spend yet another snowy weekend then Twenty Something London can help with another round of top recommendations…

In this cold snowy weather comes fitting TSL recommendations. What do you need this week? If I had to guess I’d say cosy secret corners, romantic potential date heavens and some of London’s chirpier hotspots to keep you merry when the weather is grim.

Wilton’s Music Hall, Aldgate

 

This semi-derelict building, other wise known as Wilton’s Music Hall, has the most beautiful shabby chic bar called the Mahogany bar that leads off to the cosy Library Room, which is usually filled with groups of friends nattering away. It’s off the beaten track location and daily free aperitivo hour from 6pm-8pm that make it a firm favourite.

 

The Breakfast Club, Soho

 

I always have a good time when visiting The Breakfast Club. Despite the queue which takes ages on weekends (I normally pencil in at least a 30 minute wait if at Soho or Angel) it’s the friendly service, copious mains around the £10 mark and buzzing atmosphere that make it all worth it.

 

 

The Hollybush, Hampstead

 

Sunday pub lunches are always a must in winter, particularly when it’s snowing. It’s also important to pick your pub wisely so that you make the most of your Sunday roast experience. The Holly Bush – a hidden pub at the very top of Hampstead high street – is a suggestion to tick all the boxes.

 

 

Zetter Townhouse, Clerkenwell

 

When I stumbled on this hotel bar complete with haute sophistication, inconspicuous signage and thoroughly reasonably prices I knew that my next drink rendez-vous would be here. The décor of the place is fantastic – very luxurious with lots of secret corners.

 

 

Know More Art – Online Gallery

 

One recommendation that requires little-to-no effort, other than a few simple clicks, is to browse the online galleries of over 280 submissions for Know More’s ‘Inspired London’ Art competition. This is all part of the up-coming Know More festival (Sun, 10th Feb) where some of these works will be featured alongside live-music, guest DJs, free drinks tastings and more. ‘Support art, share the gallery.
