Miznon London

Tel Aviv-born, cult-classic Miznon has opened its doors in Soho. Founded by celebrity chef Eyal Shani, the fast casual spot is known for its fresh Israeli food – think lamb kebabs filled with grilled onions, tahini and pickles; its famous whole roasted cauliflower; and minute steak, flashed and served with tahini, salsa and fresh parsley. Located on Broadwick Street in the heart of Soho and with plenty of tables available for walk-ins, Miznon is the perfect spot for a chilled Friday dinner with friends or a midnight snack on a Saturday – it’s open until 11pm.

8-12 Broadwick Street, W1F 8HW

Feminine Power

The British Museum’s summer exhibition, Feminine Power, explores the women we’ve worshipped throughout the ages, from witches and evil temptresses through to goddesses. From Sekhmet, the ancient Egyptian goddess of annihilation, whose amulets were carried for protection, to Guanyin, the Buddhist embodiment of compassion, discover the spiritual forces who have influenced our lives for millennia. The exhibition – for which tickets must be bought in advance – is enhanced with insights from the likes of Mary Beard, Elizabeth Day and Bonnie Greer.

Halcyon Nights

From 6th August, Crazy Coqs at Brasserie Zédel will transform into The Halcyon, a 1950s, after-hours world inhabited by acrobats, dancers and a live band. Halcyon Nights is the first new production from The Black Cat Cabaret since 2018 – since then, the group has been dazzling the world with residencies at The Ned, Café de Paris and Hotel Café Royal as well as some of Monaco’s chicest spots. Snacks and drinks – including 50s-inspired cocktails created by the in-house mixologist – will be on offer throughout the show.

With this summer’s never-ending sunshine, we’re looking for every excuse to spend time outside. Enter Battersea Power Station’s Cinema in the Arches, which will be showing a host of much-loved classics over the next few weeks, including Dirty Dancing and Back to The Future. While you’re there, swing by the recently opened Megan’s on the Jetty for a frozen cocktail or check out Wright Brothers’ summer pop-up. There’s also two hours of free parking for every cinema booking. Come the autumn, the boutique cinema will be opening a new cinema and private members club inside the Power Station itself – you heard it here first.
