Skylon Restaurant

By at August 28, 2011 | 4:41 pm | 0 Comment

If it’s a view you want, you’ll struggle to beat the Skylon. With windows that reach from the six-metre high ceilings to the floor, there’s no place better from which to gaze at the Thames. The restaurant is truly stylish, with graceful cutlery designed by David Mellor and Nick Munro Skylon-inspired silver coffee pots. Enjoy the fine food and then go for a stroll along the Southbank.

Skylon offers a spectacular panorama of London’s skyline, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the  Thames from the first floor of the Royal Festival Hall.

Executive Chef Helena Puolakka oversees the destination Restaurant and relaxed, informal Grill, whilst the Bar serves classic and contemporary cocktails.

Skylon takes its name from the structure that was built for the 1951 Festival of Britain alongside the Festival Hall:a futuristic, cigar-shaped, steel and aluminium structure, lit from within and standing 300ft tall.  Southbank Centre is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain throughout the summer, and Skylon is joining in with Tonic, an exhibition of specially commissioned art.

Soho Gyms

By at August 28, 2011 | 3:47 pm | 0 Comment

We only build gyms that offer as much natural light and open space as possible. You won’t find any turnstiles or basement rooms with us. (Picture the best bits of any gym you’ve ever been to – and nothing in their way.)

Inside, you’ll find best-in-class kit and lots of it. Highlights include the largest collection of free weights you’re likely to see, and specialist gear including TRX fitness equipment, Jacob’s Ladders and Power Plates (take a look below for all the details). Each gym also has an open fitness studio space and, wherever possible, we’ve added boxing rings and dedicated spaces for personal trainers to run individual or group classes.

When you’re done working out, make your way to superbly maintained changing facilities, with locker and towel hire, sauna cabins and sun beds. Once you’re changed, relax in the café area you’ll find – ready to serve you workout fuel you’ll need, or a cappuccino you fancy while you chat
