Looking for a special spot in central london to spice up a winter's day? The NoMad's Side Hustle is the place to visit. Combining Mexican cuisine with the carefree attitude of the British Pub, treat yourself to an array of agave cocktails and classic Mexican dishes.
Review: "As soon as you walk into what used to be a police station, you're blessed with the coolest film prints and a lively yet cosy atmosphere. We were seated right at the bar which is great if you love a nice chat with the knowledgeable bar staff, who might I add, gave us the most curated personal experience. Throughout the night we tried a lovely selection of Mexican dishes (the favourites!) which all seemed to have a story of their own. Whether it's for a hot date or a much-needed girls' night out, I couldn't give this place a higher recommendation."

Looking for something special? Why not gift a loved one a night on London's only superyacht at the prestigious Royal Docks. It not only includes a 10/10 afternoon tea with a complimentary cocktail or glass of champagne but also a scrumptious fully cooked breakfast the next morning. Located right next door to the ExCeL and close to Canary Wharf, it's a thriving area for an evening stroll. The yacht even has a snazzy bar for a late night beverage or two. Blessed with both a sunset and a sunrise from your room, those views are worth it alone.

Are you a James Bond fan? If that's a big yes, there is one activity we recommend you do to top off your experience and that's a visit down the James Bond memory lane at The Distillery. Whether you're a James Bond fanatic or new to 007, The Distillery are giving you the chance to indulge yourself in an evening of gastronomic storytelling including a five-course immersive adventure (and don't get us started on the famous Bond drinks) for just £100. And, trust us when we say, you really feel like one of the Bond girls or Bond, James Bond, himself.

To whoever was behind this clever idea of combining a traditional afternoon tea with Japanese cuisine, you are a genius. Well actually, the genius does have a name and its Michelin star chef Garry Hollihead. Crispy shrimps, vegetable gyoza and caramelised miso tarts are just some of the few plates included in this outrageously tasty offer.

Obsessed with The Great British Bake Off? Yeah, who isn't? Our Heat writer Ruby recently visited the Big London Bake's newest tent in Haggerston to try out the experience.

Review: "It's super strange watching Bake Off for so many years, and then walk into an exact recreation of the tent itself, with cocktail in hand. I went with a friend, and as a duo you have around two hours to create a themed cake using ingredients and surprises provided. It was so much fun, and the hosts were such a laugh. Even after a couple of drinks, our cake turned out stellar, although we didn't win star baker."

Jet past the city's greatest sights this summer while looking fly AF aboard one of the Thames Rockets speedboats. The combination of a top summer soundtrack blaring in your ears, wind in your hair, and a cocktail in your hand is sure to make you feel on top of the world (especially when you zoom under Tower Bridge as the sun sets). And yes, throwing your hands in the air is mandatory.
