Lighting up Old Street: The Art Wall installation at The Bower

Demakersvan's Art Wall at The Bower At Old Street

Demakersvan’s Art Wall at The Bower At Old Street

The Old Street roundabout has never been one of the more attractive hubs in London. However, increasing regeneration is breathing new life into the area’s buildings and making EC1 a more attractive place to be.

As part of new office and retail quarter The Bower, a new public art installation is lighting up Old Street for the better. Renowned Dutch artists DeMakersVan have created a facetted stainless steel and glass installation inspired by Shoreditch’s industrial past.

The Art Wall is located at the City Road entrance to The Bower and is visible from the Old Street roundabout. The installation is a 21 metre long, 3-dimensional structure lit up with LED panels. The DeMakersVan brothers were inspired by the Crittal windows commonly found in Shoreditch and warped the shape. Mirrors on the interior of the structure reflect the white haze glass windows and rainbow effect glass panels, resulting in an iridescent light display.

Gerald Kaye, CEO of Helical, developer of The Bower, enthused: ‘The Bower is the perfect location for our Art Wall, which we believe encapsulates both the history of the area and the transformation of materials and aesthetics over time. We are proud to have it positioned in such a public and visible space by Old Street tube station, and hope the public enjoy this fantastic piece of art.’

DeMakersVan commented: ‘We are delighted to unveil our first installation in London, and believe the locations aesthetic complements the work and its philosophy perfectly.’

As well as the Art Wall, The Bower is also home to Bone Daddies, The Draft House, Enoteca da Luca, Honest Burger, Maki sushi bar, Good & Proper Tea and Franze & Evans.

  • The Bower, Old Street roundabout, Shoreditch, EC1V 9NR. Nearest station: Old Street. For more information about The Bower, visit their website.

Meet, play, love at London’s fun new dating night ‘Game Dating’

Game DatingWith the likes of dating apps like Tinder and Happn, it can feel like the search for romance has become… well, a bit too technological. On the flip side, some speed dating nights can feel a bit daunting.

Shaking up the London dating scene is an original and fun new concept called Game Dating. Having launched in Shoreditch last month, Game Dating is back this month in the hope of making matches in a relaxed and creative environment.

London singletons can leave their nerves at the door for a fun-filled evening of playing specially selected interactive games. It’ll be a battle of wits, wills and team bonding against a backdrop of DJs, music and drinks.

The concept has been created by people with backgrounds in psychology, events and team-building so the games have been developed to reveal more about a potential date than traditional apps and dating sites.

Explaining the concept, Game Dating creator and founder, James Smith said: ‘After being a user of dating apps and websites, I soon found I became bored of swiping left and right and that potential matches were not of a serious nature. Talking to friends who were also single, I began to develop the idea of Game dating. We knew how speed dating nights have been around for many years but realised it was a good time to look at starting a fresh approach to speed dating, rather than it being just a meet and greet, we could make the whole process less daunting and a lot more fun.’

  • Game Dating takes place on 15 December 2015 and more dates in January 2016 at BL- NK Space, 25-27 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, EC2A 3LT. Nearest station: Shoreditch High Street or Old Street. Tickets: £25 or 2 friends for £45 (inc. free glass of Proseco). For more information, visit Game Dating’s official website. For tickets, visit Design My Night.

It’s London baby! Central Perk comes to the capital at FriendsFest

© Memoirs Of A Metro Girl 2015

Monica and Rachel’s apartment has been recreated at FriendsFest in Shoreditch, London

Like millions around the world, I was a huge fan of Friends back in the 90s and early 00s. I can’t believe it’s been 11 years since the show finished, but thanks to the joy of re-runs, there’s always an episode on somewhere. Last month, I heard there was a five-day Friends festival coming to London and knew I had to get tickets somehow. The tickets sold out in less than 20 minutes, but I was fortunate enough to check it out at the press launch last night.

Comedy Central’s FriendsFest has set up camp at the Boiler House on Brick Lane, transforming a huge space into a slice of ’90s Manhattan. The shining glory is a meticulous reconstruction of Monica and Rachel’s apartment, which we were able to walk in to and interact with the props. There was the TV where the gang watched the Prom Video, the notepad where Monica used to insist everyone write down phone messages and the clock face biscuit tin on the kitchen counter. The iconic yellow door frame – which fans will remember was the last shot in the series finale in 2004 – was in situ, prompting many a selfie in front of it. One of the highlights of the evening was meeting the very friendly James Michael Tyler, who played Central Perk manager Gunther, in Monica’s kitchen!

That’s not Monica! Actor James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, surprised fans by attending

After walking around Monica and Rachel’s apartment, we visited the photobooth, complete with costumes from iconic episodes, such as Father Christmas, Dr Drake Ramoray’s scrubs, Rachel’s cheerleading outfit and wedding dresses. For those wanting a ’90s style makeover, there was a pop-up hair salon for ladies after a ‘The Rachel’ blow-dry. Around the corner, a small section of Joey and Chandler’s living room had been recreated with black barcaloungers, an entertainment unit and foosball table – which I admittedly lost playing against my friends.

Amidst all the emotional revisits of favourite episodes and photo moments, there was also somewhere to eat and drink in the Central Perk-inspired café, with Monica’s Mac N Cheese and Joey’s favourite pizza on the menu. Taking centre stage was a familiar orange sofa – which featured in Central Perk and the opening credits. While chowing down on the snacks, we checked out the mini museum, featuring actual props from the show, including The Geller Cup and the VHS of ‘Buffay The Vampire Layer’.

What was notable about FriendsFest was how excited everyone was. People from different backgrounds and varying interests shared a common love of Friends with different props or pieces of furniture prompting people to quote lines from their favourite episode – ‘Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!’ Even the celebrities in attendance, such as Alesha Dixon, Michelle Keegan and McBusted’s Tom Fletcher, were free to let their public personas drop and enjoy a ‘fan girl or boy’ moment over a beloved show. For those lucky enough to get tickets, you’re in for a treat.

  • FriendsFest is on at the Boiler House in Brick Lane, Shoreditch from 16 – 20 September 2015. All tickets have sold out in advance and will not be available on the door.

DF/Mexico review: Self-service, tacos and free drinks refills… eating Mexican NY-style

Mexican street food: Fish tacos at DF/Mexico

© Memoirs Of A Metro Girl 2015

Once you’ve seen the menu, you can order on the self-service touch screens

DF/Mexico is the newest venture from the people behind Wahaca. I’ve long been a fan of the Wahaca chain and Mexican food in general and am thrilled there’s finally decent Mexican food in London after years of nothingness. A close friend, who like me has also travelled around Mexico and is quite discerning when it comes to its cuisine, recommend I try it… before the name completely slipped my mind. Then on a Friday afternoon in Shoreditch, I accidentally stumbled upon DF/Mexico and instantly remembered it as my friend’s recommendation. The DF in the name is what Mexicans refer to Mexico City as, aka Distrito Federal. The premise is a modern Mexican diner serving street food. There’s no reservations and an unusual self-service system, so if you’re looking to be treated, then maybe this isn’t the place for you. However, if you’re looking for filling and tasty food and don’t have much time on your hands, this is a good place to stop.

My sister and I visited for a late lunch and were pretty ravenous by the time we arrived. We claimed a table before studying the menus – featuring a mix of burritos, tacos, salad and grilled chicken or meat. Once we were ready to order, we headed to one of the self-service touch screens, where you put your order in. I found it pretty simple and straight-forward, despite the lack of interaction with a human. We both ordered some of the bottomless soft drinks at just £2.30, which was very appealing if you’re particularly thirsty. I’m a fan of Hibiscus – a flavour I don’t find very often – so enjoyed a few glasses of it and it was pretty gorgeous I must admit. In addition to the usual soda, the venue is also licensed and serves Mexican classics such as Frozen Margaritas or Sol and Pacifico Clara beers.

Upon returning to our table, we didn’t have to wait long for our food to arrive. I ordered the MSC Fish Tacos, served helpfully upright in a taco tray. Cooked in Panko crumbs, the cod was filling and tasty – not too oily – and served with red coleslaw and Chipotle mayonnaise, which gave it a bit of a kick. Admittedly, I could have ordered more, but the lateness of the day being caught between lunch and dinner meant I was forced to reel in my appetite. Overall, the venue was light and contemporary and we felt quite comfortable stopping by for our quick eat. The food and drink were really good and the prices were very good value. Definitely a pit stop to refuel at next time I’m in Brick Lane.

Lego art is Awesome! The Art Of The Brick exhibition at Old Truman Brewery

© Memoirs Of A Metro Girl 2014

Art Of The Brick features over 75 sculptures, including ‘The Swimmer’, and runs at the Truman Brewery until April 2015

The mask: Three facial sculptures, including a self-portrait of the artist (blue)

Like many, I was a huge fan of Lego growing up. Forget dolls and playing ‘house’, I preferred to build houses, towns and goodness knows what else with Lego bricks. Now I doubt Lego has ever really fallen out of favour with children over the decades, but it certainly seems to be cooler than ever at the moment, following the release of the Lego movie earlier this year.

Following successful showings in New York, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Shanghai and Singapore, artist Nathan Sawaya’s Art Of The Brick exhibition has finally arrived in London. Running at the Old Truman Brewery until January, AOTB features over 75 sculptures made from over 1 million Lego bricks. Although I missed the launch, I went along recently with my sister (a fellow childhood Lego aficionado) to see how humble plastic bricks can be used to create pieces of art.

After watching a short video with an introduction to American artist Sawaya and his inspiration, we then started in the ‘classics’ section of the exhibition, where he had created Lego versions of iconic artwork such as Rodin’s The Thinker, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss. While it was admirable to see these recreations, we were more interested to see Sawaya’s original pieces. His creations ranged from small to huge, with information boxes detailing his inspiration, the meaning and how many bricks used. It was interesting  to see contrasting size sculptures sometimes having surprisingly close number of bricks involved to make them.

© Memoirs Of A Metro Girl 2014

The T-Rex was made using over 80,000 bricks and measures over 6 metres long

Among the recognisable pieces of Sawaya’s work ‘Yellow’, a sculpture of a male torso opening his chest to reveal bricks spilling out. My favourite was ‘The Swimmer’, which was stunningly lit in its own room, featuring only the top half of a swimmer that you would see out of the water. The pièce de résistance was the huge T-Rex, made with 80,000 bricks and measuring over six metres in length.

An exhibition for both adults and children, there is also an Interactive Zone at the end so you can make your own creation. But given Sawaya’s sculptures took over 4,188 hours to make, budding Lego artists may find their options are limited. For those looking for some nostalgia or those with an interest in art made from non-traditional materials, I can recommend checking out Art Of The Brick.

  • The Art Of The Brick exhibition runs at the Old Truman Brewery from now until 12 April 2015. Tickets: Adults: £14.50-£16.50, Children under 12: £8-£9.50. Open daily, hours vary. Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, Shoreditch, E1 6QL. Nearest station: Aldgate or Shoreditch High Street. For more information, visit The Art Of The Brick website.

Where’s the party at? Guide to New Year’s Eve 2012 celebrations in London

© Memoirs Of A Metro Girl 2012

Cheers! London will be full of popping champagne corks

2012 has been a year for celebrations – the Queen’s Jubilee, the Olympics and Paralympics… so why not finish 2012 on a high note and party one last time. Although increasing amounts of friends are staying in for New Year because they find it ‘doesn’t live up to the hype’, I personally have always gone out and done something different every year and always had a good time. I try to start the night with moderate to low expectations and keep an open mind… perhaps that’s my secret to having a string of brilliant New Year’s Eves for the past decade.

So obviously there are 100s of New Year’s Eve events on in London and I don’t have the time or inclination to list them all – I do have a full-time job after all! But if you’re looking for some inspiration, here’s a few parties that caught my eye. Whatever you do, hope you have a Happy New Year!
