HELIOT STEAK HOUSE SUMMER MENU

heliot-steakhouse-leicester-square-london
Summer is officially here in the UK (yes we’re late to the party but better late than never, hey).

If you fancy a break from the sweltering heat whilst still feeling like you’re not missing out on the summertime fun, take a stroll to Heliot Steakhouse to enjoy their new barbecue-inspired menu.

Executive Chef Ioannis Grammenos has cooked up a range of light and fresh dishes especially for the summer months. Starters include a beautifully balanced Sea Bass Ceviche with chilli, ginger and pickled pearl onions, and palette-pleasing Smoked salmon with crisp green apple, chargrilled sourdough toast and sour cream mousse.

For a meaty main, opt for the Grilled Spatchcock Chicken, served with sticky homemade BBQ sauce for dipping, or herby Lamb Cutlets with roasted aubergine and a rich jus gras. From the sea, enjoy their sublime (and Candy Rae certified) Lobster on skewers with a lemon and garlic crust, or a Grilled Mackerel fillet served with roasted baby courgettes, carrots and a creamy dill sauce.

To end with something sweet, try the decadent Chocolate Sphere, filled with a rich chocolate mousse, or a light Lemon crème brûlée tart with crumbly, flaky pastry and lemon curd ice cream.

After your meal, head up to the Hippodrome Casino’s stunning rooftop bar to catch the last of the sun’s rays. With bartenders on hand to serve an array of refreshing cocktails, you can truly make the most of a summer’s day.

ALTUZARRA RESORT 2017

21-altuzarra-resort-172

Tough femininity inspired by the sensual ease of the 80’s, underpinned by an air of adventure. Altuzarra’s Resort 2017 collection is all of those things and more.

The well-loved Alize Jacket has been reworked this season as an Altuzarra Perfecto in supple leather with laced detailing. Paired with day dresses in vibrant contrast lace overlays, setting the playful and spontaneous tone of the collection.

Plaid silk prints in bleached scarlet and royal blue are applied to the Shirtdress (another Altuzarra staple) which makes reference to the tie-dye pieces featured in the previous Spring season.

The signature Altuzarra silhouette remains with the likes of the Fitted Blazer, and the Slit Pencil Skirt. In addition, this season introduces new shapes with boxy tailoring in the form of masculine boyfriend blazers, studded sweaters, and button-up skirts and dresses.

The lines between daywear and loungewear are beautifully blurred with trompe l’oeil pieces. Silk lace-trimmed camisole tops and slips are worn under waifish knits.

For the evening, cupped sequins are delicately applied to chantilly lace tops and dresses in feminine yet whimsical colours to a create a subtly dazzling effect.

The shoe range is alluring and sassy, featuring a newly fashioned conical heel. Sandals, zip-up booties and pumps take centre stage in natural and coloured python. The Ghianda accessories offering also continues to expand this season, with the new Soft Clutch in calf and python skins designed to transition seamlessly from day to night.

Wearable everyday staples with that ‘classic Altuzarra sophistication’, and a dash of new school cool.

ACNE STUDIOS RESORT 2017

acne studios resort 2017
Acne Studios’ 2017 Resort Collection tells a free-spirited story of fluid, soft, layered sensuality in a range of standout pieces with generously draped fabrics, and a variety of prints from tie-dye to oil-print.

A blue long sleeve cowl neck knee length dress sit to one side with a drape allowing the printed lining to fall into view. The oversized white blazer has underpinnings at the waist to create a skirted silhouette, whilst skirts have underlayers to create a historical feel. The tie-dye padded cape and the press-stud dress of orange and green dyed panels take inspiration from duvets, whereas lightweight block colour trenches add an essence of subtlety.

The white sheath dress is knotted loosely at the side, and sits pretty over the bleached out blouse with a faded psychedelic oil print. Knitwear dabbles with patterns including the sweatshirt with stripes reminiscent of TV interference, and dip-dye stripes featured on the ribbed sweater and the tank dress.

The trouser department welcomes a futuristic take on loose Fisherman’s Pants held together with a long white belt, and the contrasting panelled Motocross Pant that oozes shape and structure.

Sock sneakers return in tie-dye with an elevated version of the Swedish clog and its roughly stapled straps. Whilst dressy yet laidback heels are wrapped in fabric to really hone in on the fluid nature of the collection. To finish, the wearable leather bag with interchangeable wide straps in contrasting colours, trimmed with thick multicolour rope ties everything together.

MYKI SAND BAR HITS SOHO

Archer Street have teamed up with Cîroc to launch Myki Sand Bar – London’s first beach club bar. Myki Sand Bar opens today as the newest summer pop-up in town, and is set to become a popular destination hotspot; encapsulating the glamour of some of the hottest beach clubs in Europe right in the heart of Soho.

Located on the lower ground floor of Archer Street, the 220-cover bar features clean white and blue décor, tropical palms, ceiling sails, glistening golden sand, panoramic shots of the world’s most glamorous beaches, and summer hits from the decades playing in the background, with live entertainment during the evening.

Fun-seekers can expect to be ‘taken on an epic journey of summer bliss as they escape the sweltering city without stepping a foot out of Soho’.

The bar showcases a bespoke menu of cocktails curated by Cîroc including Cîroc Blue Stone, Cîroc Pineapple and the exclusive new Cîroc Pink Grapefruit. The cocktails are inspired by world famous beach clubs; featuring creations such as the signature ‘Heatwave’, and the very tropical ‘Yes I Like Piña Coladas’. The ‘Heatwave’ is a vibrant medley of Cîroc Blue Stone, peach liqueur, lime, chilli bitters and orgeat. Whilst ‘Yes I Like Piña Coladas’ is a refreshing twist on the well-loved Piña Colada blended with Cîroc Coconut, cream, pineapple, Coco Lopez and a pinch of salt.

Myki Sand Bar is open to the public from Thursday to Saturday, and VIP booths are available to book throughout the weekend, where guests can sink their feet into the silky sand as they sip on cocktails. The bar is also available for private hire for exclusive summer events and corporate functions.

The best news? The pop-up will run until late 2016 and undoubtedly serve as the perfect getaway from the colder months to come.
