Ditch the detox

Forget the January health kick and treat yourself to a slap-up steak dinner instead.

Having first opened its doors in London in 1975, Chez Gerard is back in the city.

Expect top-notch cuts and bottomless frites for about £20 at its new venue (below) in Bishopsgate, east London.

If you can’t wait until lunchtime, head there for breakfast, with tasty options including doorstep smoked streaky bacon sarnies and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. 


Get high, watch films

Sip cocktails and watch cult movies above the hustle and bustle of the capital in the stunning setting of The Roof Gardens.

From January 7-10, the Kensington High Street venue will be screening films including The Goonies, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Drive, The Artist, Top Gun and Back To The Future in conjunction with Rooftop Film Club.

Tickets from £20 include a glass of bubbly, a hot snack and butler service amid the tranquil 1.5 acres of themed gardens.

Doors open at 6pm and 8pm for screenings. Top way to beat the January blues.
