12th October – 17th December 2023: UVA — Synchronicity

180 The Strand, Temple, London WC2R 3DA

Price: £25 a ticket

Marrying lights, music and philosophy, the United Visual Artists’ latest show couldn’t be more immersive. Located in the basement of 180 Studios on the strand, each piece feels as though it transports you to a different mood or place. One of the works ponders the ‘Edge of Chaos’ theory and will have you feeling that you’re in a sci-fi film that’s gone terribly awry, while others have a brighter, lighter feel to them.

dealchecker Tip: We recommend taking your time with each piece. The exhibition isn’t huge and each piece conveys a story in itself.

Eat At:


3 Great Titchfield St., London W1W 8AX

Chishuru was named Time Out’s best restaurant in 2022, and so fans were sad and a little confused when the restaurant shut its doors in Brixton Market last year. However, it’s back and with a bang! Now located in the heart of Fitzrovia, it has a slightly more glam look but the same elevated West African dishes. It only offers a set menu, and it’s the lunch menu (at £35pp) that offers the best value.

Drink In:


35 St James’s Pl, St. James’s, London SW1A 1NY

With the temperatures dropping fast at the moment, we’re looking to drink in cosy surrounds that manage to be utterly decadent. Where better to find that than at DUKES, the birthplace of James Bond’s chosen tipple? Martinis are the name of the game here and the staff are on hand to serve them up just how you like. The prices are high but boy are the drinks strong, and you’re limited to two martinis per sitting which your wallet will thank you for too.
