Let’s welcome June with open arms and big grins on our faces. So far, it’s promised us summer sunshine and a calendar so busy resting is just not an option. However, if you’re one of the few who have nothing much or the least bit exciting then let us help you with that! As always #Wegotyou #QbicRecommends
STAY – QBIC LONDON!
A hotel that refuses to bow down to convention. Green credentials, quality beds, powerful showers, sociability and quirky style are at the heart and soul of Qbic. Located in Aldgate which is perfect for the modern-day explorer, we’re different… in a good way!
EAT – GELATO FESTIVAL
Fun fact: In 1559 some guy called Bernardo Buontalenti invented a high-milk, lower-fat version of ice cream and called it Gelato… so a gazillion years later Spitafields market are holding the Gelato fest between the 16th – 18th before it heads of to Germany and Poland! Let’s just call this the ‘Eurovision for taste buds’
DRINK – JUNIPALOOZA
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT… June 10th is of course World Gin Day, which means we can have gin for brekkie, lunch and dinner! No seriously don’t do that but you could always go to Junipalooza which is dozens of gin makers in one room, sharing their love for the spirit and serving up samples and stories for all to enjoy.
SEE – ROYAL ASCOT 2017
The Ascots are for everyone! From race horse experts to fashionistas, food lovers and of course Royalty (we’re all royal in our own rights!). One of the biggest events of the year makes its annual return 20th – 24th and is set to be bigger and better than the last!
LISTEN – FIELD DAY FESTIVAL
Field Day has become one of London’s popular festivals, with their impressive list of alternative acts. They make sure they cover everything from weird pop to cool indie and folk music. Let’s just call it a festival for everyone and this year on the 3rd they have a few surprises in store.
DO – YOGA GLOW
Ok, this is a favourite for two reasons, first of all if you haven’t been to God’s Own Junkyard then you seriously need to get down there, its’s a yard showcasing neon artist Chris Bracey’s work! Then of course having the lovely ladies at Good Yoga Life holding a class there Saturday Mornings. There’s also tea and cake available after class.
GO – BRIXTON BEACH
Yes these two probably sound weird together but Brixton does in fact have a beach… a sort of manmade beach but it does the job! Nesting on a rooftop in the heart of Brixton, the very eventful and extremely colourful paradise is set to be the ultimate urban beach with music food and entertainment.
SHOP – SPITAFIELDS MARKET
Spitalfields Market offers cutting edge fashion, interiors and original artworks as well as food. It’s one of the coolest markets around not just for shopping, they often have festivals and other events happening constantly making sure your experience is different each time round.
PARTY – LAST DAYS OF SHOREDITCH
This is not just another rooftop… Last days of Shoreditch does not plan to disappoint! Giving a whole new meaning to rooftop they come equipped with cocktails, craft beer, an urban beach area, an avocado bar (YES AVOCADO!) and a range of street food!
KIDS – POWERPUFF GIRLS EMPORIUM
Save the best to last, they say… so of course we have none other than the coolest cutest three little superheroes of all time!! YES we are talking about the Powderpuff girls! They’re so cool they’ve only just gone and opened their own pop-up emporium.
