Dare you enter the Cabin – an Escape London adventure

IMG_20180329_1One of the newest rooms from Escape London . The Cabin is there to challenge your investigation skills as we as your observational skills. We played this at their Shepherds Bush location and they also have other locations in Shadwell

A game requires a lot of team work as there are lots of puzzles for everyone one to get involved in. The game is not linear so you and your team can split up into little groups and all get involved.

There are definitely a lot of puzzles to be solved and everyone will be sure to be kept busy finding all your missing items in order to escape before the killer Hunter returns.

Can you make it out in 60 minutes with all the items you’ll need to find your way back home?

The room itself was only two days old and as a group of 7 experienced players we managed to solve all the puzzles and escape in just 28 minutes.. Definitely a record for me and the group. For those who are less experienced then look carefully or else you might miss the missing components.

A great game however one recommendation I would suggest would be to make the game more challenging is to not have the clues too coordinated.. As once you found the number the order was easily figure out.. However again as experienced players it might be easy for us to spot. Also maybe to keep the number of players to 4-5 as I felt that would make the game more harder to break.

I really enjoyed this game and would like to thank Love Pop Up London and Escape London for the  invite to test out their new room. received_10156218182711064

Love cinema? Try Rivoli for a different type of experience 

I have always loved going to the cinema. I remember date night always included a visit to the movies.. However I have found one that I cant wait to return. The Rivoli Ballroom at Crofton Park, is one amazing art deco venue..

I have heard that this venue was once in the music video of Tina Turner ‘private dancer’ so have a watch if you want to see it.

The Rivoli Ballroom was opened in 1890 so you can tell that the building is rich in its decor and history of what it has been through. The current owner Bill has had this venue for a long time and it has been used as a typical Ballroom,  most recently it has been used to screen classic movies which gives the cinemagoer a more authentic feel of that era and how amazing life would have been. Bill is usually found chatting to punters visiting so do stop and have a chat and find out a little more about the history he brings.

The Ballroom has two bar areas and even if you aren’t a drinker please go in and have a look at the Australian oak surrounding the bar and the deep velvet couches makes it so comfy you don’t want to leave.

The Ballroom is opposite Crofton Park Station so you won’t miss it.. It’s on the overground and unless you are local I recommend taking public transport as it’s very easy to get to. Each ticket cost around £12.00 and they normally screen classics.. So if you want to see the latest blockbuster this might not be for you..

The Ballroom is turned into a cinema, however the Ballroom feel is never far away. There are seats along the edges of the room which you normally catch lovers making full use the love seats for a more intimate experience.

The venue also offer the typical balloon experience, the first Saturday of every month is dedicated to same sex Ballroom. Jive night every third Saturday and the best thing disco on the last Saturday of every month.. So what are you waiting for?

Thanks again to Rivoli Ballroom and Love Pop Up London for the experience.. If anyone ask me where they should go for a special movie night.. This is definitely the place to be!

Love street food? Try the Pigling Street – Brick Lane

I have always loved an opportunity to try different types of food around and a good street food market is always one that holds dear to my heart. The street food available around the Brick Lane area is ever changing with new food stalls popping up.

This weekend I got to try a Pigling Hog Roast Bap at Pigling Street

The pigs that they use for their pork are female pigs reared here on the Suffolk soil. These pigs are ones who have not yet had any piglets hence makes their meat extra tender.

The pig is roasted on the fire right on the stall so you can see the whole cooking process and its amazing. They even have their own tomato ketchup which the owner used to make himself, but due to the 7 hour cooking process, he has delegated this to another supplier so he can concentrate on making the best crispy hog roast bap!

Surrounding with a delicious brioche bun with an optional duck egg on top, is amazing especially once the yolk splits when you bite into it.

If you are ever down in Brick Lane and looking for some food, why not pop over for a visit.

Thanks to the Unofficial yelp community for taking me there for a taste of what a great hog roast look like!
