The best things to do this week

Restaurant of the Week: Bingham Riverhouse
icon-location-pin Richmond
Restaurant of the Week: Bingham Riverhouse

A smart-casual riverside restaurant at a boutique Richmond hotel. The food. The freebies. The flattering light. Oh, and did we mention the views?

Bar of the Week: Kwãnt
icon-location-pin Mayfair
Bar of the Week: Kwãnt

Sip on exciting and fun drinks in an atmospheric basement bar. Try Mr Banana – a murky blend of rum, cold brew coffee liqueur and the Monkey Punch, a Ribena-esque cocktail made from whisky, calvados, mezcal and sherry. It’ll feel straight out of ‘Casablanca’.

Film of the Week: ‘The Souvenir’
Film Film of the Week: ‘The Souvenir’

A coming-of-age story based on director Joanna Hogg’s life. It’s beautifully crafted, uncompromising, uningratiating – and a film that’ll linger on the mind afterwards.
