Weekday Dinner at The Bristol Harbour Hotel

Weekday Dinner at The Bristol Harbour Hotel

This article comes after an invitation from the Bristol Harbour Hotel to review the Jetty Restaurant’s new à la carte menu. While the meal was complimentary, the opinions expressed in this article reflect my true experience. Corn Street is many things to many people – a weekend market, a clubbing destination and a foodie’s dream. I revel in the diversity of restaurants and bars, but sitting at the top like a castle on the hill, is Corn Street’s crowning glory…

Adrenaline Junkie Cocktails

Adrenaline Junkie Cocktails

It’s been three months since I’ve travelled, and another three months until I jet off again, so the wanderlust has reached no bounds as I’ve started to visit every hipster coffee shop and coffee bar in the local vicinity just looking for that little bit of excitement. Aluna UK, one of Bristol’s newest bars, definitely garnered my attention with its tantalising decor and creative cocktail menu. Although, I admit I did that thing again where I just happen to walk past…

Life is a Cabaret, old chum.

Life is a Cabaret, old chum.

You’d think I’d learnt my lesson after a certain ‘ManFrancisco’, where I took my chum to experience her first male ‘strip’ show, except it was less Magic Mike and more Broke back Mountain (Should’ve known with it being in San Francisco’s Castro). But when I saw Proud Cabaret in Brighton, 10 minutes walk from our guest house, I thought – hey! This is going to be great! Walking in I was in awe of the dimly lit venue, crowded with…

How to drink Wódka

How to drink Wódka

Tatanka is the BEST way to drink Wódka. Despite losing my Tatanka virginity in a bar named ‘Alchemia’, this polish cocktail is so effortless that even the most futile cocktail maker can produce it! And it goes something like this… 4 parts apple juice 2 parts Żubrówka (Otherwise known as Bisongrass Vodka) Garnish with cinnamon I could sit here and gush about how it literally tastes like liquid apple pie, but www.zubrowka.co.uk offers a more refined definition. ‘The sweetness and…

Sleep-deprived thoughts I had while approaching our hostel

Sleep-deprived thoughts I had while approaching our hostel

Sleep-deprived thoughts I had while approaching our hostel in Krakow; “OK so we’re staying in a hostel. I’m not sure I like hostels. It’s ok you have a private room. You’ll only be there to sleep. Is this a safe part of town? I hope the beds will be comfortable. I heard someone had no curtains in their hostel? Oh god, I hope they have curtains!” It’s ok, they had curtains. And I survived. Our hostel resembled that of a…
