Immersive Dining at The Banquet of Hoshena


An illusionary feast for the senses, Banquet of Hoshena is a unique dining concept running as a pop-up over the summer. 

The innovative experience founded by Nadine Beshir, co-founder of the popular Dinner Time Story in close collaboration of artists Davy & Kirsten McGuire sees diners transported on a mystical voyage to an imaginary land. 

Taken through a five-course Tasting Menu paired with wine and cocktail flights, the immersive journey is enhanced with sound and visual accompaniments heightening the experience. 

Using the latest 3D technology, projector-led imagery guides guests through the feast as the story of the magical kingdom of Hoshena unravels in a cleverly synchronised storytelling that lasts two hours. 

Expect to be amazed with different textures and effects as this is one London pop-up you don’t want to miss.

Runs until 7th August, www.banquetofhoshena.com

Lavish beach life of Mykonos: NAMMOS

 Nammos beachfront restaurant recreates the atmosphere of life aboard – a luxurious yacht on the beach

6th October 2018

It is without a doubt one of the hottest party-sports on the Greek islands. Part casual Greek restaurant, part waterside nightclub, part laidback beach bar, Nammos is where the smart set whiles away the long Mykonos summer days and nights. Every August it’s filled with beautiful Athenians ready to spend the season tanning, drinking, eating and partying.

A lifestyle destination with a restaurant, great cocktail bar with DJs and a shisha area is a complete lifestyle destination on the idyllic setting of Psarou Beach.

The bar is a chilled‐out vision of white and taupe, opening directly onto the beach. Here the wealthy locals and international jetsetters relax as they sip a refreshing fruity cocktail or chilled flute of champagne, indulging in a spot of discreet people‐watching from behind their shades. Laidback by day, the energy rises as the evening progresses and the DJs up the volume and the tempo to get the crowd on their feet.

A shisha smoking area next to the bar offers a variety of exotic flavours, including coconut, passionfruit and mango. And for those arriving at the island by yacht, there’s an exclusive transfer service taking guests from deck to bar and back again.

A day lounging by the sea is for many the ultimate indulgence. Under the blazing Greek sun, nuzzled in the golden sands of Psarou, the Nammos Beach transcends every notion of a mere beach bar by presenting the absolute aestival experience, a day on the beach at Nammos. The Nammos experience is an authentic tribute to pleasure, homage to the fervour and brio of Mykonos, as captioned by Nammos.

Nights with sounds that made us dance, nights that become bright as day with fireworks bursting in the skies, people partying as late as the crack of dawn, thousands of cocktail glasses raised to toast to summer and life and yes, countless bottles of champagne!
