Movember will take over London next month so expect a whole lot of hairy lipped people sprouting everything from the ridiculous to the impressive in facial hair all in aid of cancer of the ball bag. Which is actually a pretty serious issue. There is a whole lot of grooming going on, it's purpose is to encourage groping of ones sack to identify any suspicious lumps. If you need some help just let us know we're happy to lend a hand and, in the meantime check out these pop-up salons...
Over at Whiteleys you will find the Gentlemen’s Pop Up Lounge: The Tashatorium will all sorts of free snizzle going down from consultations on how to get the perfect handle bar to full facial hair restyles and of course some free drinkies. The only catch is that you must be willing to accept the challenges set by the bizarre characters who gad about in the Lounge. From close-shaves and bar-challenges to classic pub games and the very technical state-of-the-art infamous-tashe strength test. Go on get your TASH out....

Silently Revolting are dancing on Capitalism’s Grave for their Halloween party extravaganza. Returning after a year off the non-profit party hosts are back on Friday 2nd November at Space Studios. Here’s how things go down, you the punter buy a ticket for £10, this gives you 32,000 revolutions from the bureau de change which works out between 5 and 8 drinks plus food at their pop up taco joint, this is an estimate as the drinks are constantly fluctuating in price according to demand. So unless you are certain on getting twated beyond comprehension this should be enough.
The Crisis a la Mode parties are always based on themes, and this one is revelling with the dead and joining Mexico in celebrating the day of the dead. You can bash the shit out of Thatcher and Reagan, gamble your life away at Dr Death’s poker league and indulge in tequila and tacos.
Purchase your currency in advance and collect at The Bureau de Change on arrival. FIRST 50 GET FREE BLOOD PUNCH. Please note that you are purchasing currency to spend in the space and this is not an entry fee...

As a hotel in Leicester Square, the heart of London's cinema district, it was only logical that the W Hotel should launch their own Film Club. The Film Club takes place in the 39 seat plush cinema, hidden within the super-flashy designer hotel offering intimate screenings of some pretty exciting movies.
The HD screenings will take place every fortnight with the next film being The Perks of Being a Wallflower on 13th November. Future films include Killing Them Softly and Seven Psychopaths with Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken.
Standard tickets are £15 each, you can upgrade to include a welcome drink for an extra fiver or you can go all out and pay an additional £20 for a pre-movie bento box from the Spice Market. Best of all though, is that popcorn is included in all ticket prices. The run is strictly limited and set to finish on 15th January, so you might want to book your tickets now!
W Hotel, 10 Wardour Street, W1D
Everybody’s favourite night of the year tomorrow, what do you mean Halloween, we’re talking about SLAGBOX. The popular singles night for people who hate singles nights. It’s simple, you bring a friend of the opposite sex with you, they give you a number which costs 5 quid. You scan the dance floor and note the number of you suitor. You then write them a cheeky note as formal or as dirty as you like, and add both your numbers before popping it in the SLAGBOX where it will be read out by the during rounds 1, 2 and 3 of the evening. You then take this opportunity to see who has their eye on you...
What’s more Makeup Artist Scarlett will be Day Of The Dead-ing your faces (don’t go overboard though you are there to pull!) and FREE cocktails to the best notes. As usual we are sure you would agree that there are many health and safety issues surrounding this event. We urge you to drink responsibly, use protection and under no circumstances mention we told you about this sordid little orgy!

The end of October and the start of November is a spooky time of year. In Europe, we associate it with Halloween, a night to celebrate the supernatural, dress up in scary costumes and eat too many sweets. But in Mexico it's all about the Day of the Dead or as they call it, Dia de Los Muertos.
Wahaca are leading the way with the celebrations with Thomasina Miers' Mexican mini-chain throwing a mini-festival in the Old Vic Tunnels. From Wednesday 31st October until Saturday 3rd November they will be hosting four days of art, music, film and of course food. Rodrigo y Gabriela will be headlining the festivities each night with their intricate and mesmerising guitar skills. Mexican artists and photographers will be displaying their latest exhibitions, to be enjoyed alongside tequila cocktails and Mexican food.
Tickets are £51 and include admission to the tunnels from 7pm, a screening of 'Santa Sagre' with a live score, two cocktails, a selection of street food and of course the headline gig from Rodrigo y Gabriela, quite a line up!

The Dead Dolls Club has opened the doors on its new home in Dalston. Located next door to Faulkners on Kingsland Road the building has been converted into a sexy space, bang on trend with candle sticks, vintage glassware and low lighting. We popped in last week to test the cocktails and we were pretty impressed.
The menu features just 8 cocktails with a daily spesh, we tried The Foreigner which came served with a Hibiscus flower at the bottom of the glass and The Game Keeper which is great for real men who "don't do" cocktails as it's made with lager and even comes with a straw of wheat which they can chew on and look just like a farmer. Our favourite was the Cook's Ruin, a gin based drink served with a black feather attached to the glass - SEXY.
The bar also serve a couple of stews each night, we sampled the beef and vegetable which were both pretty fly and not bad value for £7. The bar is open until 2am Thurs - Sat and it's free entry, we have a feeling we'll be rolling from The Haggerston at last orders on many a weekend.

The Sipsmith Gin Palace opened its doors recently at The Langham taking guests back to the glamorous era of the mid 1800’s where the very first Gin Palaces were at their most prolific, most probably wild sex and drug parties. Come on it was the mid 1800’s.
Times have now most definitely changed and The Sipsmith Gin Palace is set within Palm Court, the infamous afternoon tea venue which is transformed come 7pm into an enchanting room with low red lighting and live Jazz cavorting in the corner. The menu celebrates the history of gin through the different stages in the evolution of British class. From the birth of gin in 1690 to the very first G&T of 1793 through to the modern rise of the molecular mixology.
We sampled The Secret Method from 1770, a mixture of gin, vodka, cocchi, lemon juice, lime juice and sugar syrup and The Ginger Lilly from 1798 a mixture of gin, ginger and lilly cordial – no messing around in those days. Each cocktail comes with a recommended tasting dish, we’d strongly advise trying the tea smoked quail with cous cous and the Marble cheesecake served with a jammie dodger.
At £14 a pop for a cocktail and £7.50 for the tasting dish it’s not the kind of place you’ll go to get sloshed but worth the splurge. Take the parents they’ll be well impressed and they can pick up the bill. Double bonus!
Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 7pm until midnight.

Halloween, a scary time of year. It’s not really is it, this ain’t no suburban town in the middle of nowhere in America, this is London and a bunch of kids running round in masks is more annoying than scary. You wanna see scary kids, come knock on our door and we’ll shout at you for walking on the lawn. Anyhow, what could be a little scary, if that’s your thing, might be one of the outdoor cinema screens at Morden this year where they will be showing Nightmare on Elm Street and The Exorcist. There’s no denying those aren’t a little creepy. Tickets are £10 from here.

Martini Movies returns to One Aldwych this Autumn with a cracking line-up of films. For those of you who don't know Martini Movies consists of a martini and a movie - the clues in the name people. There is also dinner included in the ticket price and the movie is shown in the plus cinema suite - no Odeons here people. Oh and the popcorn's free.
It costs £42.50 per person which when you sum up the benefits and what you get it's actually pretty reasonable. The movies take place during a weekend and in December they are showing some classics on a Sunday arvo - pretty neat place to hide away from the cold and take a date? We'd be impressed! For the full listings hit up the website. Advance booking is a must.

As Halloween fast approaches why not scare yourself silly and head down to the Round Chapel in Hackney who have joined forces with Experience Cinema, from the guys behind Rooftop Film Club, to host a whole bunch of screenings that are set to get your knees shaking and your hairs standing on end!
With films for both adults and children some are obviously scarier than others....think ET, Ghostbusters and Halloween! Yes there is something for everyone no matter what your scare threshold....Come on we were all a little bit scared of ET dressed up as that ghost with the sheet over his head weren't we? Hmmm maybe that was just us!
Nothing quite like Halloween horror films on the BIG SCREAM (sorry we meant screen!) Too much? Ok we'll stop now - ticket details below....

If you're anything like us, you're on a constant quest to find the best pubs and quirkiest bars in London. If you want to find those secret hidden gems though, you need to know people in the know. We do our best to recommend the coolest places but now there are also companies that specialise in helping you find these underground hangouts.
Destination Unknown is a brand new organisation that specialises in introducing you to bars that you've never been to. The concept is simple. Sign up for a tour, rendezvous with your mystery contact at an arranged central London location and they take you to three venues around town. The price of the sign up includes taxis between the venues and your first drink in each bar.
We don't want to give too much away about the exact locations of the bars we visited during our adventure with Destination Unknown, but all three venues were great fun and places that we had never been before. We pride ourselves on being experts in London nightlife, but it’s clear that Destination Unknown have done their homework and know their boozers!
Our evening started by meeting our guide in South Kensington who took us, and a small group of like-minded drinkers, to a local speakeasy, so hidden away that we'd never be able to find it again. A couple of cocktails here preceded us jumping into cabs and heading to basement cocktail bar near Regents Park. Live music and more cocktails were enjoyed before moving on to our final bar in Shoreditch. All three bars were entirely new to us and places that we will definitely go back to. Success!!
Destination Unknown also offer bespoke party planning, so if you're looking to organise a pub crawl with your mates, they can take out all the stress and organise it for you. However, we had great fun meeting new people on our journey and we'd definitely recommend taking the opportunity to make new friends, especially if you’re a bit thin on the ground. If you've got a sense of adventure, enjoy a cocktail or two and can keep a secret then this might just be the night for you.

The Queen of Hoxton loves to come up with new ways to keep their customers interested. From launching their roof garden a couple of years ago, to hosting open air film screenings, there's always something going on. For the winter season, they've once again erected a giant wigwam on the roof, the best way to keep warm on cold nights.
Positioned on the boundaries between Shoreditch and The City, the rooftop offers great views and with the wigwam covered in fairy lights, it should be a magical atmosphere. Relax in a chair with a hot chocolate or toast your own marshmallows and be entertained by live music and entertainment. The huge barbecue in the centre of the teepee will not only keep you warm but also keep you full - the Queen of Hoxton has always provided some pretty tasty grub so we're dying to see what surprises they'll be serving up! The wigwam is open from 26th October until March 2013.
In the words of Sweet “Just try a little wig wam bam”

The Hot Tub Cinema returns again only this time it's for a Halloween spesh. Following a popular stint at Netil House it would appear the pop-up cinema experience has found a new home.
Running for four nights you can expect one classic film, one horror, one comedy and one musical. Tickets usually sell out pretty fast so you may want set your alarm for Wed 10th Oct at noon sharp. As usual the prices are £22 for access to shared tubs) and £25 for access to private tubs between 8 (£200 for the whole tub). We'd probably suggest going private because, well you never know who you might end up sharing with.
Dig out those mankinis and dust off the speedos!

The days are getting shorter and the mornings are starting to feel a little frosty. That can only mean that winter is fast approaching but fear not, because that means that Christmas is on its way and we can feel less guilty about eating comfort food and drinking mulled wine and spiced cider.
We're also pretty excited about the Rekorderlig Winter Forest Bar which will be popping up in Brick Lane from 26th October until 6th November. The bar will be surrounded by pine trees for that authentic Swedish feel, with native bites and canapés served by Norse by Norswest including elk sausage rolls, cheese croquettes with cloudberry chutney and naturally, Swedish meatballs. There will also be Rekorderlig winter cider served hot for that extra Christmassy feel or for the more adventurous Rekorderlig cocktails.
Scandinavian DJs will be spinning tunes from the region too - hopefully more Peter, Bjorn and John and less Abba. Project Fresh Socks will be behind the decks with live music coming from hotly-tipped solo artist Faye.
Tickets cost just £5 and include a free tasting tray of ciders.
Tickets are available from Facebook.com/Rekorderlig now, with a very limited number available on the door each night on a first come first served basis.

It's officially London Cocktail Week so forgive us if we go a little overboard with the cocktail news and reviews. Last week we told you about Smatt's Rum and Ice Cream shack and now we bring news of another pop-up. This time it's the turn of Bourbon Whiskey Buffalo Trace, which has created a prohibition inspired pop up bar named The Buffalo Bourbon Empire.
Paying homage to the history of Buffalo Bourbon - it was 1 of only 4 distilleries in America to survive Prohibition - the pop-up comes complete with curtain-cloaked entrance, authentic American cocktails and conspicuous waiters donning spats and braces. Think Lawless but a little more glamorous.
Guests can get involved in tasting master-classes hosted by Master Blender Drew Mayville, go in a draw to win a trip to New York for 2, or try a range of Buffalo Trace signature cocktails (£4 for London Cocktail Week wristband holders or £7 without). What's more the bar will be around for 3 whole weeks.

The Olympics maybe over but we still have the Olympic Park, or should we say Queen Elizabeth Park. The park has now been given a new name, website and purpose....
As well as 8,000 new homes spread into 5 neighbourhoods there will be a whopping 357 football pitches (that means you could play football every week and never use the same pitch twice), 25 sports and activities to choose from every day, 1000's of activities throughout the year and "the UK's most exciting playground". Worth a visit for that alone surely?
The park opens to visitors in July with the first residents moving on site in summer 2013. For more info and a 360 degree tour check out the website.

There is a new bar in the hood, Mezcalaria Quiquiriqui opens tonight on Hackney Road. The bar specialises in artisan mezcal and is billing itself as “the first genuine mezcal bar to open in London”. The concept taken straight from Mexico City uses mezcal techniques of production, mixing them up to make some very tasty and very STRONG cocktails. You can also drink this bad boy straight but at 55% you don't want to be having too many on a school night!
We went down to check the place out last night and nearly missed it. It’s hidden behind the Golden Grill restaurant. Walk through a side door and down the dark stair case until you hit down town Mexico. The vibe is great and it has been kitted out pretty on trend too. An eclectic style of vintage wall paper and old theatre chairs, some cool lighting and nifty paintwork. DJ’s will be on the decks on a Friday and Saturday night although with the current licence it will have to close at 2am...fingers crossed they will manage to get the 5am licence in the not to far off future.
Cocktails start at £7 and are all frozen...we tasted a few and loved them. There’s also a whole menu of mezcal based inventions for you to give a go. You can even get a kebab from the golden grill after to soak up all the booze – you will probably need it.
The Golden Grill, 184 Hackney Road, E2
Our favourite week of the year is just around the corner, London Cocktail Week! We don't usually need any excuse to partake in a martini or two, but it'd be rude not to get involved! As usual, there will be loads of pop-up events going on around town and one that stands out is Smatt's rum and ice cream shack in Covent Garden.
The summer may be long gone, but you can still pretend you're on a Caribbean beach with these creamy boozy treats. Twist's Tim Robinson will be creating twisted ice cream cocktails with Smatt's Jamaican rum at the pop-up bar on Monmouth Street from 8th - 14th October, midday until 9pm daily.
There's free tasting and cocktail making masterclasses for London Cocktail Week wristband holders, but the rest of us can turn up and experience their creations either chilling at the bar or relaxing at an intimate candlelit table, all with live blues music to complete the experience.
If life offers a better combination than ice cream and alcohol (outside of the bedroom!), we're yet to hear of it. Keep an eye on their Facebook and Twitter accounts for the chance to win prizes throughout the week! For reservations, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Rooftop Swishing Party tonight Peeps. Get rid of your unwanted clobber (girls you could fill rooms full) and exchange it for something you would rather wear. It’s all going down tonight, this very eve at Netil House. Don’t worry you won’t be swapping your leather jacket that’s slightly too big for a pair of worn out flip flops, the ‘Rule of the Rails’ make sure it’s a fair game for one and all: so no Primark, plain T-shirts, vests, dirty knickers or accessories. This must be something you are willing to trade that is not erm, how can we put this, gash! For each swap you make you pay £1 and you are allowed to bring up to ten pieces to trade with. Choose your weapon wisely. Changing rooms are available but there will probably be a little side boobage at some point. Artisan cakes on sale and a BYOB policy means corkage is £4 on wine, £1 on beer and cider. The robbing swines!
Please email email@example.com to add your name to the guest list if you wish to take part.

Lets face it winter is well and truly upon us. But whilst the weather maybe crap we have found one type of rain that is sure to float your boat. Pun not intended!
The Rooftop Film Club are hosting an extra special one-off screening of Prince's 'Purple Rain' this Friday 5th October set in the dazzling heights of Netil House London Fields. The venue is the perfect place for a rooftop showing with 360 degree panoramic views of the city so you can enjoy drizzle filled London landscape from every angle. Whats more there will be a 80's themed dressing up box on site meaning you can get into the true spirit of things. Think shoulder pads, hair spray, jumpsuits and mini skirts - just a standard night out in East London
The screening will be followed by a silent disco where you can dance the night away. Fancy dress is not enforced but encouraged and it's hoped the audience will stand not sit. Get your party shoes on and get those feet tapping! A retro American diner will be serving grub and booze throughout.
Tickets are £12

The Autumn London's Southbank is getting a dose of Parisian decadence as risque cabaret Forever Crazy lands in the capital. We went down to check out the show which marks the 60th anniversary of the well known Crazy Horse located on Paris's Avenue George V.
The show features ten super sexy female dancers strutting their stuff against a backdrop of stunning lighting and visual effects - if you've got it flaunt it baby! The girls are classically trained and yep they're naked. But this isn't your dirty Shoreditch strip joint. The show takes place in a intimate venue with plush cabaret style seating, four bars, a large reception area, and all of the trimmings you’d expect on a first-class night out.
Table service if you choose is definitely worth paying extra for - you don't want to miss any tits and ass now do you? The show was great with the Crazy Horse dancers direct from Paris definitely living up to their reputation. Go with a group of friends, as a couple or on a works do (On second thoughts maybe not) it's definitely worth a date in the diary.
Tickets from £35
Running until 16th Dec
