This summer was a roller coaster. With all this talk of wall-building, conscious un-couplings, snapchat revelations and now Brangelina, it would be easy to be a little glum going into the fall.

Chatting to our neighbours, the lovely people at Sipsmith, we decided to get together and hold a party to celebrate our fantastic neighbourhood and hopefully cheer us all up after the turbulence of the summer.

Blue Plate presents an eclectic menu of mouth-watering food complemented by refreshing drinks from Sipsmith featuring the wonderful spirits they make right here in W4.

Friday 21st October, 1930hrs to 2300hrs

Tickets - £25 (includes 2 tasting plates from a menu of 4 & 2 drinks from a menu of 4).

Over 18s only.

Additional food and drink will also be available to purchase.

Book tickets here


Come together and celebrate acceptance, diversity and the international flavours of our magnificent city.

Come together and love thy neighbour.

You may have heard that back where we come from, there’s a little election going on this year. There has been some media coverage. Ok, there’s been a ton of coverage. Even though no one actually knows the names that will be on the November ballot. There have been some pretty crazy moments, and there’s still 8 months to go. Sigh.

So, instead of focussing on our future, we thought we’d look back and celebrate the home state of our current president. Kenya.

Just kidding. As we all now know (even you Donald) the 44th President of the United States of America hails from Hawaii. So for this month’s Route 66, we’re gonna need a boat, as we sail to the isolated volcanic archipelago that is Hawaii. It’s also a name synonymous with paradise, shirts, and some pretty tasty food…

So, as usual, we're a little behind with our blog for the new year. Yeah, we know it's the end of February. What can we say? We hibernate?

Anyways, we've already had a great Pancake Day – Sweet Potato being the outright favourite – and Valentine's has been and gone too. Whilst we hope there are no broken hearts, nothing will mend them better than some N'awlins Vittles (New Orleans' snack foods). Famous for their Mardi Gras celebrations, it seems fitting to stop off at New Orleans for our Saturday Night Route 66 dinners.
