Soulfood w World’s Best Martini

What better way to kick off the new year at Soulfood with an award-winning martini, lovingly made by the founders of the World’s Best Martini Challenge. Hear gin connoisseurs James and Gary describe what makes a champion martini and get the lowdown on the final. which takes place at OLSO Hackney on the 18th of January.

It’s the month of soft launches, so head down to Rudies in Boxpark and l’Ami Malo in Spitalfields for discounted Jerk cooking and crepes.

If a January detox is more your vibe make sure you check out ‘My Body is a Temple’ at the Andaz Hotel in collaboration with Psycle London. Take part in a yoga workshop in the secret Masonic hall before chowing down on a specially-curated vegan brunch with bottomless veg juice and smoothies.

At the other end of the spectrum is Bear & burger – a burger joint, tap room and bottle shop that is coming to Dalston this month. With over 300 beers to choose from Dry January will feel like a distant memory.
