London Happenings in the Month of July

Post Thumbnail

As the month of June comes to an end and the weather continues to improve, many of us are finally entering the summer mentality. While rooftop bars and picnics in the park are always enjoyable, there are a number of events taking place in London in July that are certain to make this month a memorable one.


Renowned chef Tom Sellers is  opening a new restaurant on the corner of Piccadilly and Berkeley Street later  this month. Well known for his eclectic menus and use of seasonal produce, Dovetale is set to follow in the footsteps of his other two-Michelin-starred eatery Restaurant Story by creating  an eco-conscious yet luxurious experience.  It won’t take itself too seriously though…it will serve knickerbocker glories tableside from a trolley and there’ll be a cocktail bar next door. Not only is the food set to be special, but the space itself will be modern and homely, featuring wooden accents and an outdoor pergola space — likely to be the place to be seen  this summer.

Opening on the 13th July

A World in Common: Contemporary African Photography

The Tate Modern is welcoming a new exhibition on the 6th. A World in Common: Contemporary African Photography is a media exhibition that explores the way in which photography, audio and film has reshaped and influenced Africa’s history and culture. The exhibition will feature works from artists across different generations and showcase them in a non-traditional way, by transporting viewers through psychedelic dreamlands and Africa’s lively cities through the eyes of the artists. The exhibition is free for members and £17 for general admission tickets, which can be purchased in advance here.

Pavyllon London

The Four Seasons on Park Lane is welcoming a new restaurant this month, led by top chef Yannick Alléno. The French chef will open Pavyllon London on the 1st of July, following the success of his Michelin-starred Paris restaurant Pavillon Ledoyen. This new venue is set to have an extensive and impressive wine list, with each carefully selected to accompany the inventive new wave menu. It will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you can even sit at the counter and watch the artistry of the chefs as they put together each dazzling dish. This upcoming hotspot has been highly anticipated by London foodies and fans of Alléno, so if you wish to dine here be sure to make a reservation well in advance.

Opened on the 1st July

London’s iconic Somerset House will open an exhibition at the end of July which will showcase the photographic and contemporary works of 18 black women and non-binary artists, focusing on the representation of black women throughout the ages within visual culture.
