Vogue Fashion Night Out at Sartoria
During Vogue’s fashion fabulous night out on the 8th of September, food loving shoppers should head to Sartorio, where shopping can be done out of the comfort of a chair and in the great company of chef Lukas Pfaff’s exquisite Italian food. Sit back and sip from some delicious Italian wine or from the exclusively mixed ‘Vogue’ cocktail, while models strut past you showing off  the new season’s collections. For those not lucky enough to get in, or those simply curious about the fuss, you can enjoy the live window displays, featuring a fashion show with models.

Lombard

Lombard Street’s Wine Society
Always felt you should know a bit more about wine than which is the cheapest at Sainsbury’s? Fearing the moment your boss will catch your lack of common wine knowledge? Then head to the Lombard Street Wine Society coming Friday, where you’re offered the chance to study about six different wines from New Zealand. Special guest of the night is award-winning Robert Giorgione, also known as 'The Roving Sommelier'. He will guide you through the six wines and the night, which starts at 7pm. It seems like the perfect opportunity to cram in some studying on your Friday night, while getting a bit tipsy before a good night out.

The parade, spectacularly illuminated in the dark, is made up of 2,000 dancers and drummers, from as far as Japan.

Closing of The Bathhouse
Forgotten place of East London’s Victorian decadence and the City’s quirky workers’ favourite nightspot, The Bathhouse, is closing its doors this weekend. Everyone, regulars or not, is invited to the very last opening night of the glamourous venue, titled The Bathhouse Wake. Owners Tava O’Hallaran and Daniel Wright will join in a toast to celebrate all the good times spent at this joyful venue. The Bathhouse has many celebrities seen mixing in with the locals – it was that kind of place where the likes of Alexa Chung, Henry Holland and Kasabian would be sipping a beer, before getting their tops off on one of the wild nights. Make sure you pay your respects.

Head to the 1920s style tea room, for sandwiches, cream teas and cupcakes, or treat your eyes to nostalgic vintage sounds from the gramophone.
