Our mates at LondOntheInside have rounded up four things they’re pretty damn excited about this month.
Breddos Tacos, Clerkenwell, Dec 8
Some of our fave street-food traders have gone from pop-up to perm this year and we've been counting down the days until Breddos Tacos opens, because who doesn't want ice-cream tacos?! Oh and they're doing brekkie in January too. Hello, blueberry churro French toast!
Queens: Skate-Dine-Bowl, Queensway, Dec 8
It's had a pretty massive makeover and is now finally ready to open the doors. Yep, Queen's ice rink is back in business. As well as showing off our skills on the ice, we're gonna go full-on retro with bowling, 'Pac-Man', and piles of diner food from pop-up king Jimmy Garcia.
The New Zealand Cellar Garage Sale, Brixton, Dec 10
Boozy and bargain are two of our fave words at this time of year, so put them together and we are there. The NZ Cellar is doing just that with their garage sale, so you can pick up top-notch wines and beers at knock-down prices – perfect if you need to fill up your festive drinks cabinet. Best of all, you can try before you buy.
The Distillery, Portobello Road, Dec 16
We can't wait to check in at The Distillery, which is essentially a gin hotel. Over its four floors of gin goodness, visitors can eat, drink, sleep and repeat without even leaving the building. They've also opened the Ginstitute, where you can learn a bit more about the spirit and blend your own. And hey, if it's educational, it must be okay to drink your way through a bottle of gin.
