The Little Yellow Door Pop-up Bar in Notting Hill


Next week a new cocktail bar called The Little Yellow Door opens at 68 Notting Hill Gate.  Themed around a fictional flatshare, it's open from Thursday to Saturday, including a dinner party on Friday night, from the 'Wandering Chef' team.  Some very nice touches - 'regular visitors will receive a key to the door so they can come and leave as they wish, plus if guests bring a quirky bottle of drink from their own home they will be rewarded with a personalised mug, which will be filled up with a special punch every time they visit free of charge.'  Full booking details below.

"The Little Yellow Door, located on Notting Hill Gate, will open its doors next Wednesday (29 October). It is based on a fictional flatshare between five friendly ‘flatmates’, who will be welcoming locals and non-locals into their cosy west London home, where they will host weekly dinner and drinks parties.
The Little Yellow Door has claimed it will be the first hospitality venue to take bookings by messaging service WhatsApp.
Regular visitors to The Little Yellow Door will receive a key to the door so they can come and leave as they wish, and if guests bring a quirky bottle of drink from their own home they will be rewarded with a personalised mug, which will be filled up with a special punch every time they visit free of charge.
The venue is decorated with an eclectic mix-match of colourful, quirky possessions belonging to the residents, and drink will be served in jars, blenders and teapots.
Menus are handwritten on magazines lying around the house, featuring an experimental drinks list influenced by the flatmates’ favourite TV shows. These include My Name Is Earl, an Earl Grey-infused gin, citrus, egg white and sugar short drink served in a tea cup and saucer with biscuits on the side, and sprinkled with earl grey leaves."

Thu: 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Fri: 6:00 pm - 1:00 am
Sat: 7:00 pm - 1:00 am

En Brochette's 3 month Residency at The Star of Kings in King's Cross


En Brochette serves delicious skewers of food (see above) and has just started a residency at Star of Kings in King's Cross, to run into January 2015.  Expect combinations like French inspired slow cooked pork with truffled apple sauce, barely cooked salmon provincial, lemon rubbed artichoke and sweet potato, plus regular specials.


"Forklift trucks, rock bands, nude modelling and kitchens. It might have taken them the scenic route to get here, but Paul and Ika have definitely arrived with En Brochette.
After more years than they care to remember slaving away in high-end catering kitchens, they decided it was time they started out on their own journey. And a trip to Giles Peterson’s Worldwide festival in the South of France finally skewered the winning idea.
Fresh local seafood, beautifully cooked meats, Mediterranean vegetables - skewer it, grill it to perfection and you have French elegance on a stick. Tapas style fun with a little je ne sais quoi. In short, they thought, you have London’s next best pop-up: En Brochette.
Following a couple of hugely successful stabs at Flamingo Pier in Hackney Wick (Time Out’s Best London Pop-Ups), En Brochette begins a three-month residency at the Star of Kings in London’s Kings Cross.
Pop along from 6 October 2014 and you’ll discover South of France charm on a very British stick. French inspired slow cooked pork with truffled apple sauce, barely cooked salmon provincial, lemon rubbed artichoke and sweet potato - all alongside an ever changing specials board that introduces Brochette’s global cousins – satays, kabobs, shish, souvlaki, yakitori and much much more.
Look out for upcoming supper clubs as well, where En Brochette will bring you more intriguing options than you can shake a stick at…"

When - Monday - Saturday from 6th October
12pm - 3pm / 6pm -10pm - Mon till Friday
12pm - 9pm - Saturday

Where - The Star of Kings, 126 York Way, N1 0AX

iZettle, a technology which lets you take card payments on your smartphone or tablet, is opening a pop-up shop for 6 days from Monday 27th October.  Each day a different company will trade for 12 hours, from 9am - 9pm, taking payments from iZettle - full list of companies below.


"iZettle, Europe’s number one provider of mobile payment services and apps, today announces the launch of The 12 Hour Store which sees iZettle empower six small businesses to trade from one of the busiest shopping districts in the world, central London in the UK.
Based on a mindset that ‘Big things start small’, The 12 Hour Store will be open for six days featuring businesses that have aspirations to become as successful as their neighbouring global retailers. 
Each business will trade out of the store for 12 hours with everything from the storefront to the interior being decorated to fit their brand. Every day the store will open at 9am and stop trading at 9pm at which point it will then transform to reflect the next company’s  brand.
