Doin' It @ Taman Gang
Within the luxurious walls of Taman Gang restaurant and club, Wednesday nights will see a night like no other the West has seen. It will be a cracking night with some of London’s hottest DJ’s and guests – think Hoxton Square brought to the aspiring streets of Mayfair. With tickets from £6-£8, you can still have a good night with enough cash for the tube fair home. It’s all about wearing stylish clothes, having the right attitude and getting down to some fresh beats. Email for Guestlist.
Sleazy Sundays @ Boujis
The delicious Sam Young and a host of Guest DJ's take over Londons hottest club ever Sunday night with an eclectic mix of tunes.

Londoners Through a Lens @ Getty Images Gallery
Photographs from 1900-1990 from the Getty Images Hulton Archive. This isn’t a showcase of tourist hotspots or a roll-call of famous Londoners or even a chronological survey of photography in the capital. Some well-known names crop up, both in front of and behind the camera: the Beatles, the Kray brothers, Thurston Hopkins, Terry Fincher and Terry O’Neill. And some famous events: the Battle of Cable Street in 1936, the poll tax riots in 1990. Some iconic structures and places appear too: the Daily Express building, Trellick Tower, Eros, Petticoat Lane Market. The result is a portrait of London, but an idiosyncratic and inevitably incomplete one, where celebration and protest, the individual and the crowd, the momentous and the mundane all have their place. If you love London - you need to see this. Best of all, its FREE!

Mutate Britain present One Foot in the Grove @ Notting Hill
The Mutate Britain collective follow up the success of last year’s Behind the Shutters exhibition with a new show in a striking 9,000 square ft location in West London next to Portobello Market; entitled ‘One Foot in the Grove’. The show, which opens on Sept 24th, will include many of their infamous pieces such as ‘Larry’ the robot dog, Giles Walker’s poledancing robots, Joe Rush’s vehicle sculptures and sawn off aircraft wings plus also some newer works such as a giant jukebox. Another key installation will be the huge human pinball machine which made an appearance at the Mutoid Waste’s ‘Trash City’ field at Glastonbury 2009. The pinball machine has a built-in dance floor big enough for 400 people and ‘Trash City’ boasted secret shows from Fatboy Slim, Freq Nasty and Ross Allen – amongst others. ‘One Foot in the Grove’ will also be home to London’s largest open-air smoking bar as well as DJs and live art installations. The space will be open from Thursday to Sundays and run for approximately six weeks from the launch date. Keep your eye on this for more details.

Sue Ryder Care’s Art Liberating Lives is a nationwide annual art competition that celebrates the power of art as a form of therapy, expression and liberation. It offers artists, of all abilities, the chance to exhibit work at London’s prestigious Mall Galleries as well as raise vital funds for Sue Ryder Care. Artists are invited to submit work in all mediums created to the theme ‘liberation’ and selected artworks, chosen by a panel of judges will be shown in an exclusive December exhibition. The entry deadline for the competition is the 21st October and I'd urge anyone with a creative streak to take part!
Here is a map of some (not all!) of my favourite places in London. Will keep adding, but may take a while!
