The Berkeley Cinema
The Berkeley’s festive roof garden is once again turning into a cinema, to show the best Christmas classics and offer guests cosy shelter. With wooden huts laden with furry blankets and flowing Laurent-Perrier champagne, we can’t think of anything we would want more for a romantic festive evening. It’s sure to be a very intimate affair, with only eight guests at each showing, adding to the exclusive nature of the event. Tickets are £95.. A little expensive but worth every penny to escape the craziness of the city, even if its just for an evening.
15 November until 21 December.

Served as part of the story and created by none other than Neil Rankin, legendary Head Chef of Temper Restaurants
Sharing a name with the opulent hotel it’s based in, the Henrietta restaurant is a stylish new eatery based in the heart of London’s Covent Garden. Making up a key part of the hotel, this entire venture has been thought up by the team at the Experimental Group.
The restaurant itself is run by chef Ollie Dabbous. Already running two Michelin-starred restaurants in Fitzrovia – Dabbous and Barnyard – the famous chef is focus on delivering an ingredient-led menu composed of seasonal dishes, each of which boast a subtle nod to French cuisine.
The restaurant seats 80 diners at one time and has a bar that serves cocktails as flavoursome and delicately crafted as each dish on the food menu. Cocktail historians Jared Brown and Anistatia Miller are pulling the strings here, constantly creating new concoctions and driving the entire venue to push as many culinary boundaries as it can on its rise up London’s food ladder.
