Spitalfields is a bustling part of East London hosting a myriad of bars and eateries as well as changeable market stalls. The area now has a new resident in the form of world famous cocktail legend, Salvatore Calabrese at The Mule Bar. The new watering hole is located below popular restaurant The Holy Birds. Calabrese has partnered with his two sons, Gerry and John and created a classic menu of over 50 cocktails representing his lengthy journey within the industry. Set amongst expertly implemented 60s decor, it all feels pretty groovy baby.

A live and immersive exhibition did you say? Yes indeed, the Tate Modern is bringing forth a combination of installation, performance, film, video, sound, and talks over a period of ten days. The event will feature works by Fujiko Nakaya, Isabel Lewis, CAMP and Fred Moten and Wu Tsang to name a few. The unique Ten Days, Six Nights will be a wondrous experience for art connoisseurs, amateurs and even the generally disinterested. Think sculptures made from artificial fog, displays linking social media with the natural world, and thought provoking pieces beyond reality. It will leave you with cultured conversation starters for months to come. March 24 – April 2

Get into any carriage on the tube and you’re likely to come face to face with an angry advertisement describing the poisonous air inhaled by Londoners every day. Not the greatest way to start your day but certainly food for thought. Tiger Beer has launched the world’s first clean air gallery in Brixton with creations made from air pollution. Confused yet? The gallery promotes displays which make use of Air-ink, an innovative process which transforms air pollution into ink, and that ink is turned into beautiful art. When life pollutes your lemons, you gotta get creative.
