At this cool location – where the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake and Rihanna have partied over the years – resident DJs will set the vibe with techno and house tunes.

VISIT THIS POP-UP: Max Mara, Liberty
We rarely need an excuse to visit Liberty, but were excited to hear Max Mara has opened a pop-up stall on the ground floor to celebrate its 70th anniversary. Known for its clean and classic silhouettes, the brand’s tailored coats and chunky knits regularly top our wish lists here at SL. During the pop-up you’ll be able to shop the 2021 anniversary capsule collection, which features reissued items from iconic past collections, as well as newly designed items for autumn/winter.

Cointreau has teamed up with a few of our favourite venues to create cool margarita terraces where you can enjoy cocktails surrounded by beautiful autumnal decorations – think show-stopping pumpkin patches and floral displays. Book a table at Bluebird Chelsea or Bluebird White City to try the ‘Purple Margarita’ made with black tea or the ‘Cointreau Fashioned’ featuring single malt whisky and chocolate liqueur. You can even join a pumpkin carving class at Bluebird White City on Saturday 30th October at 11am to create some spooky Halloween decorations.

GO TO THE CINEMA: The Nowhere Inn
This new film gets a one-off London screening at the Barbican tomorrow night (8.45pm). Written, produced and starring friends and musicians Annie Clark (St Vincent) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney), The Nowhere Inn is a metafictional account of two women making a documentary. As the pair battle through their creative ideas, they quickly discover they’re both unpredictable and incredibly difficult to work with, which not only derails the project, but also highlights several cracks in their friendship. Look out for a Dakota Johnson cameo.
