Leeds DJ and star of Celeb’s Go Dating, Tom Zanetti, has opened a new VIP style club providing evening entertainment within the confines of the Electric Press.

Saturday brunch deals also include cocktails and free flow prosecco or champagne from 3pm to get the party started.
Taking over from the former site of Gino D’Acampo’s restaurant on Park Row, Riva Blu continues to provide a modern Italian experience with a glamourous and vintage touch.

After a long anticipated wait, the Newcastle-born burger joint Meat:Stack has finally set up along Bishopgate Street feeding up to 60 diners at a time using rare and traditional beef cuts sourced from free range butchers.
