I’ve had many an adventure in this place. When I was 7 months pregnant, I ordered a virgin strawberry mojito and they brought a definitely-not-virgin-and-actually-very-alcoholic one to the table and I “accidentally” sipped too much of it before sending it back because when you’ve gone that long without alcohol you need to take what you can get. We also came here about ten minutes after Danny proposed to me. He proposed, I said yes, we got very excited and contemplated finally going to a fancy restaurant and ordering champagne, and then we saw the Common Room and said fuck it, let’s get a kebab.

Me and Danny, the selfish bastards that we are, flew to barcelona last week without our tiny adorable six month old child, and we fucking loved it. We drank 3€ cocktails in the sun, slept in til 9am (never thought that could feel so wild), and went to cafes that had no pushchair access. In short, we lived like absolute kings.

the self-proclaimed “ultimate food discovery experience” is an app you can download onto your smartphone, so that you can take a food tour completely independently, at your own pace, and even pause it and go back to it the next day if you fancy. the idea behind the app is that you pay 25-30€ to download a tour, which includes 5 or 6 restaurants/bars/cafes to ‘claim a bite’ at, and 12 ‘hidden gem’ tourist spots along the way, with information on the app about them all so that you can educate yourselves at your own pace with all the flexibility you desire.

I fucking love Indian food. I love it so much that I had to tell myself I couldn’t get any in Barcelona, and I should branch out a bit more instead. What actually happened is I ate this thali and became like a vampire who had just got a taste of blood, and then I ended up eating 8 samosas during the rest of the three days we were there. It’s a sickness, okay. I am weak.

Make No Bones is now part of Oli Sykes’ new venture Church – Temple of Fun, a huge beautiful venue which holds the vegan kitchen, an all vegan bar, a small tattoo studio, some arcade games, some free (FREE) photo booths, a 220 capacity gig venue and a small selection of his clothing brand, Drop Dead. I’m not going to lie, when I first heard about the idea for the venue I thought it sounded like too much going on at once, and wasn’t sure it would come to life in the best way. But it really did!
