London Happenings #1

New York may have amazingly cool bars and restaurants with themes like Beauty Bar or Barcade, however nothing can beat London when it comes to the unofficial and transient. 

London is home to a plethora of pop-up restaurants, bars and shops. I can think of at least 4 'roaming' secret cinemas, so many galeries and in the summer you could go to a different festival everyday. 

It's hard to keep track of all there is to do in this amazing city I call home but I thought I would take a stab. I am hoping to start this series to pass on knowledge about what London has to offer while also inspiring people to try some new things!

#1 of the series is about the Society of the Golden Slippers

Every 3rd Monday of the month The Society of the Golden Slippers puts on a candlelit show of up and coming musicians at Blacks on Dean St. You have to be following their Facebook page or on their mailing list to find out about the next concert and who will be playing. Gigs are free but you have to get on the guest list- which is apparently hard. 

Their next show is on the 16th July with Josh Kumra, Alexandre Wolfe and Kimberly Anne. These guys all sounds amazing with just their voices and guitars so I image, by candlelight, it's going to be a show to remember.
