TRY A NEW WORKOUT:

Reform-X by Psycle

The high-intensity workout helps to stimulate muscle definition, strengthen and sculpt the body (especially the core, back, glutes, hamstrings and quads), promote fat loss and release stress.

WATCH THIS PLAY:

Closer at Lyric Hammersmith Theatre

A new production of Closer has just opened at Hammersmith’s Lyric Theatre. Since its 1997 premier, the play has won an Olivier Award and been put on in more than 200 cities across the world. Now, it’s been adapted by Clare Lizzimore (Mint, The Rage) and is set in the chaos of London. Four strangers meet, fall in love and fall apart. It’s about longing, lust, sex, and desire – and betrayal when the lines between lovers and friends are blurred. Starring Jack Farthing, Ella Hunt, Nina Toussaint-White and Sam Troughton. Tickets start from £10.

MEET THE GIRLS:

The Green House at The Hoxton, Southwark

Grey Goose has opened a summer terrace at Albie at The Hoxton, Southwark. The terrace has been transformed into a green space where diners can relax with botanical spritzes and choose dishes from a new summer menu. Herboo, Sage Flowers and The Collage Club have decked out the space with greenery, tropical plants and a herb garden in collaboration with Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST), a charity which aims to introduce more greenery into local urban spaces. Choose from cocktails like the ‘Southwatermelon Basil Martini’ made with Grey Goose Essences Watermelon & Basil and the ‘Peach-Mary Spritz’ featuring Grey Goose Essences White Peach & Rosemary, before sampling new dishes like smoked white peaches with caramelised goats’ cheese, fried chicken sliders with jalapeno mayo and watermelon salsa, and tomato bruschetta with pickled strawberries and prosciutto.

Whether you’re planning a dinner party or picnic, Maison Lanson’s new Fruit Market Le Rosé is the drink of the summer. The champagne has subtle notes of red fruits like strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and blueberry – balanced by citrus undertones and with a clean, crisp finish. Each bottle comes in a limited-edition gift box, ideal for parties of al fresco soirées. Serve it on its own or use it in a classic champagne cocktail like a French 77.

Matcha brand Jenki has opened a second site in Selfridges. On the ground floor next to the Food Hall, its Feel-Good bar serves its signature matcha drinks alongside other wellness blends such as a matcha lavender and CBD latte, plant-based matcha soft serve ice-cream, and matcha blondies – a perfect alternative to your daily caffeine fix.
