Posted in Cigars, Drink, Going Out with tags , , , , , on June 20, 2012 by ManAboutTown

Our good friends over at DesignMyNight know a thing or two when it comes to great new bars in town so we tend to listen when they speak. And speak they have – ‘Nightgames’ – London’s newest pop-up bar is coming and has really caught our eye… Question is, how do we get membership to the hottest place in town?!

OK OK enough of the prelude what is this new bar they speak of?

Well DesignMyNight have described it as a brand new, exclusive and highly secret pop-up bar, that will be opening on the 26th of July to members only – membership to this highly sought-after bar is strictly by invitation only. A glamorous assortment of golds, leathers and disco balls, Nightgames features a collection of beautiful private parlours available for members to hire, where guests are treated to access to the secret backstage, priority access to the outside terrace, an allocation of magnum bottles of champagne, spirits, lager, food, and unlimited mixers & soft drinks.


Nightgames’ main club room is a treat for the senses; decadent, luxurious and sumptuous.

Also featuring a Terrace – adorned with filligree garden furniture, illuminated mirrors, golden flamingos, and large palm trees. The entertainment at Nighthgames could be described as an immersive disco experience, ranging from a live big band to curated DJ sets. This top secret club of decadence and luxury is only open for 12 nights and is set to be the invite of the Summer.

Batman Nokia Lumia 900 Phones! WANT!

Posted in Cigars on May 30, 2012 by ethemethem

Attention Dark-Knight fans, Phones4U in the UK have started taking pre-orders on the Batman Nokia Lumia 900 Limited Edition to be delivered for Friday this week! 


Be warned though, at a huge premium over the standard handset all your getting is a standard Lumia 900 with some etching and a free ticket to see the film in cinemas. The phone will be availabe for 600 of the Queens money off contract and all the way to free if you sign your mobile freedom away for 2 years.

The Nokia Lumia 900 for those not familiar with the phone is one of Nokia’s first attempts at building a Windows Phone handset and comes with some pretty middling specs, yet still packing enough of a punch to make Mr. Wayne proud of his namesake. The device includes a 4.3″ClearBlack AMOLED screen (NOT HD), 1.4ghz dual core snapdragon processor, and 512mb of RAM.

If you’d like to find out how Engadget got on with the handset in their review, click here

Alternatively, here’s Phones4U’s description:



    • Dark Knight Rises logo: Exclusive to Phones 4u, the phone comes with the iconic Batman logo laser etched into the jet black polycarbonate rear case, giving an ultra stylish look to an already sleek device.
    • Dark Knight Rises content: Browse your phone in all Gotham’s shadowy greatness with a limited edition black and grey skin, complete with exclusive character wallpapers, ringtones and packaging to complete the Dark Knight experience.
    • Windows Phone 7.5: Microsoft’s latest software iteration offers the usual stylish features, including the fully customisable Live Tiles homescreen, the rapid and undeniably beautiful Internet Explorer 9 and a host of intuitive native apps including Nokia Drive and Nokia Music as standard.
  • 4.3-inch super AMOLED display: One of the best screens on the market, this 480 x 800 pixel Gorilla Glass display makes the Lumia 900 experience all the more enjoyable, meaning you can enjoy all your exclusive Dark Knight content in stunningly clear quality wherever you are.

The Pop Up Embassy of Havana Club

Posted in Cigars, Drink with tags , , , , , on May 18, 2012 by Eray

When planning a holiday I hate having to line up outside the embassy to get the necessary visa’s. However there’s a new embassy in town which I cannot wait to visit.

Havana Club International is creating a pop-up “Mojito Embassy” that will tour selected markets, around Europe giving people the chance to learn how to make an “authentic Cuban mojito”. (I can think of a few bars that should send their barmen)

The bar will pop up in secret unconventional locations in each of the countries it tours, and will be designed to recreate the look and feel of Havana..Minus the weather (they aren’t miracle workers)

Visitors will be able to pick fresh ingredients required for the drink from stalls in the centre of the venue, before learning how to make the cocktail under the guidance of a team of bartenders.

Entry to the bar is free, but you will be charged for the drinks made and drunk. It’s only fair.

To ensure responsible drinking (everyone looks at me) consumers will be limited to three drinks each.

The Havana Club Embassy kicked off in Milan, earlier this month and will be travelling across Europe stopping in the UK, Portugal, Belgium and France.

There are also plans for the Embassy to stop in selected cities in South America and other international locations that are yet to be confirmed.

So looks like some good quality mojitos are on their way. Sign me up for citizenship..Cigars at the ready!
