AVEQIA - Farringdon, London
Bonding through the love of food...
If you're bored of the frequenting the same restaurants for special occasions, client entertainment or team building, then you'll love AVEQIA.
Designed to create a bespoke group bonding experience through a shared love of gastronomy, AVEQIA's Inspirational Cooking Experience encourages guests to socialise and enjoy a glass of vino, all while creating mouth-watering dishes.
It's all in the name
AVEQIA was inspired by the food and wine loving Roman gourmands, who truly knew how to enjoy life to the fullest.
'AVE' is Latin for ‘WELCOME’, 'Q' stands for ‘QUORUM’ (the meeting place for the Senate), 'I' is for 'INSPIRATIO' (inspiration), and 'A' is for ‘ACCUBO’, ( ‘to the table!') - hence the namesake.
Bond over sensational cuisine
Combining top class restaurant quality with a unique venue, AVEQIA aims to bring people together through the creation and enjoyment of exceptional food and drink in a relaxed and convivial setting.
Founder and CEO, David Berggren, said:
“AVEQIA is passionate about the power food has in bringing people together. We provide inspiring venues and develop interactive experiences that everyone can enjoy. These experiences foster strong relationships, create a good rapport and never compromise on quality.”
The 'Inspirational Cooking Experience', which lasts around 4 hours from start to finish, includes:
While away the hours with amazing wines
All of the wines within the dining experience are specifically chosen to enhance the flavours of the meal. Packages vary from £130pp - £180pp, dependent on the quality of the wines selected.
Tasting experiences and Krug Kitchen private dining
In addition to the Inspirational Cooking Experiences, AVEQIA also offers tasting experiences and private dining in their exclusive KRUG Kitchen, where up to 10 diners can enjoy an unforgettable cooking experience, sampling quality KRUG champagnes matched with a tantalising tasting menu designed by AVEQIA's Head Chef.

Galapagos Foods - Battersea, London
Ecuador meets Britain in this charming restaurant...
Galapagos Foods is a charming South London restaurant serving a mixture of cuisines, influenced by its down-to-earth Ecuadorian and English owners, Steve and Elaine Del Castello.
The varied menu features a wealth of offerings, inspired by food from Britain, Indonesia, Morocco and Italy, to name a few.
The real draw to this restaurant is the welcoming, efficient and unpretentious service, which is most certainly the contributing factor to the steady influx of regular customers that are acknowledged by name as they return for their favourite dishes.
For those who love home-spun gifts, the restaurant also offers an array of homemade jams and preserves all lovingly presented in gift baskets.
169 Battersea High Street
There's a little trend happening in Brixton at the moment called gentrification. Some despise it, others welcome it with open arms, but whatever your stance, it's hard to ignore the wealth of trendy new bars and restaurants popping up every day in the place of tired looking shops.
One of the newest bars to grace Coldharbour Lane, Three Eight Four takes the urban industrial chic look and runs with it. The rusted iron grills on the windows and entrance provide an air of New York meat-packing district edge, drawing in punters with its intriguingly pared down allure.
Once inside, customers can enjoy seriously sophisticated seasonal cocktails that pack a punch. Those who like their drinks on the more traditional side, can select a tipple from the Classics menu.
It's not just cocktails that make this a must-visit destination - their small plates are to die for. Mouth-watering options include: slow cooked beef brisket, Moroccan pork loin, salt & pepper squid, ceviche, artichoke heart salad, and moreish sides such as sweet potato fries.
Get there early to grab the perfect spot to wile away the hours with a cheeky tipple and a tasty nibble...
Open from 5pm 'til late.
