Happy first birthday to Rofuto (Park Regis Hotel)

I was recently invited to attend the first birthday of Rofuto, and after being promised an evening of cocktails and sushi (despite my wedding dress diet woes) I made my way gleefully to Park Regis Hotel, also the home of 1565. I'd heard a lot about this skyline restaurant before the event and was really excited to… Continue reading Happy first birthday to Rofuto (Park Regis Hotel)

Oktoberfest @ The Old Crown, Digbeth

Last night I celebrated Friday the best way I know how: slurping beer surrounded by meat. To put this into some kind of context, I attended Digbeth Oktoberfest at The Old Crown, which saw the beer garden transformed into a Bavarian themed bar packed with tasty food and beer galore.  Offering an array of theme-appropriate food… Continue reading Oktoberfest @ The Old Crown, Digbeth

Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison 

As you know I get married in just two months, so I've been busy booking my pre-wedding beautification. Being the lazy tomboy I am, I require some serious sprucing prior to getting hitched, so I've got a whole 4 hours of exfoliation, massages, manicures and pedicures (and a fizzy lunch, obviously) planned at Hotel du… Continue reading Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison

Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails. For those unfamiliar with this bar come restaurant, it's an eclectic mix of plush furnishing, peculiar paintings, and over the top decor.
