‘A JUST CAUSE’, Monday 13th May from 630pm

Purpose and cause are two words we keep hearing about in popular culture. Brands are leading the way by championing different causes by inspiring, raising awareness and creating affinity - and on occasion contributing to a shift in society. But just where did this trend come from and what does it really mean? Read on

UNFILTERED at The Pilgrm

We're back with another unmissable evening of music, magnums and a specially-created menu, offering guests an exclusive chance to try bottles at accessible prices. After our last UNFILTERED at The Pilgrm, we know that this is going to be a very special evening... Read on

Less Frills, Less Waste, More of what Matters.

Spring is a time to breathe new life into dark corners and readjust focuses, so we're taking a look at how we’ve shed the unnecessary and made sustainability a central part of The Pilgrm, whilst showing integrity to our planet, people, and neighbourhood. Read on

Easter in seven layers

Join us in the Lounge this Easter for our outrageous Seven-Decker Chocolate Stack created by Head Chef Sara Lewis. Too full to move? Stay the night with our Easter special rate - just for our friends. Read on

Spring in the City

March arrives and suddenly, thankfully, it gives us all permission to talk about the much-awaited spring. Whether or not the sunshine appears on time is another matter… But for those of us hopefuls and the ‘run-outside-at-the-first-sight-of-sun’ crowd, we’ve put together a handy guide of the best local places to soak up that vitamin D and undo all of the previous months of darkness... Read on

Can I bring my dog?

One of the most frequently asked questions the world over is can I bring my dog? So here at The Pilgrm, we’re proud to say the answer is a big yes - but there’s one or two things you’ll need to know before you do. And we thought we’d throw in a couple of four legged friendly attractions to boot. Read on

Wearing your best

Whether you’re a savant who knows what to reach for every morning or one that’s a little more indecisive – Nottingham based designer David Keyte is bucking trends by offering simple, well-made clothes, in a very unassuming and refreshing way. Read on

Get lost in London this winter

This winter time there’s only one way to see London, by escaping to it. It’s fair to say London’s a pretty big place, so come and get lost in the city’s unbridled passion for galleries, exhibitions, shows and of course, those winter sales. Read on

'Lulu in the lounge', Friday 15th March from 7pm

Playing her Friday night best from disco, nu-disco, classic house, 80s electro, soul, funk, reggae, old school hip hop and R&B. Lulu Levan is resident DJ at The Electric, Groucho and House of St Barnabas - she’ll also be joined by a special guest. Read on

'OUT WEST', Monday 11th March from 630pm

Paddington Bear, hip markets, the Carnival and penicillin are all important West London hallmarks. But today, thanks to captains of industry, the local boroughs are known for a whole lot more. In part due to neighbourhood staples and newcomers’ interests spanning across fitness, dining and co-working, the area has a new life and a revived love affair with popular culture. Read on

The Maker Session, Tuesday 22nd January from 630pm

Join us for an evening of talk. With arts and crafts’ role in reimagining old and new neighbourhoods, along with the role of ‘place’ becoming increasingly more prevalent, we ask why? Read on

The Three-way Weekend is Here

Our friends Workshop Coffee have just announced “Slow Saturdays”, a three-way tie up that we’re pretty excited about. Read on

What role does or should the built environment play in connecting, harmonising and supporting communities? We'll hear from some of the leading names in architecture along with place-makers of community to better understand the role that architecture is expected to play in today's world. Read on

London is hot, and here's why...

Wherever you are, you’ve probably heard that London is pretty hot right now. And that’s not a sentiment reserved just for the temperature - cultural icons and happenings are making the city come alive, from theatre shows to carnivals and once in a lifetime exhibitions. So we thought we’d round up some of the hottest events and secret spots in London this summer. Read on

Conserving the Archives

Popular culture is known for its peaks and troughs. And so whilst the leaders of the next big trends are perennially named the “it” thing, so few of these tastemaker’s intentions are pure or even genuine. But Jin Ahn of Conservatory Archives, the Hackney-based plant shop, is doing something especially green and we should all take note. Read on

Wined, dined, thoroughly intertwined

Wine, like many of the things we hold dear, offers much provenance. Stories and folklore around its culture exist in part due to the difficulty of bottling it, but also how each bottle is a reflection of a place in time. The great characters within the business of wine, and of course those who passionately enjoy drinking it, help drench it in dramatic intrigue. But two folks feel this intrigue needn’t be elitist anymore. Read on

Coffee with a Cause

Blending, roasting and grinding are everyday undertakings for any coffee savant, but a small crew have charged themselves with a new mission for how we enjoy our coffee. Established by three friends back in 2013, adopting a 100% organic and ethical practice, Cru always seek to make their packaging as environmental friendly as possible.   Read on

Off the Wall

Often said to be in the eye of the beholder, the beauty of art transcends both place and time. An artist’s work is more often than not, a reflection of their journey and an insight into their understanding of life, their stories and inspirations stirring them into one act of creation or another. We take a look at three polarising artists, and how their individual styles have led to them all meeting at The Pilgrm this autumn. Read on

A Material World, part one

The famous 80s song proclaimed, we are “living in a material world”, but thankfully sustainability's significant influence on design in recent years has given this statement more meaning. For the modern day maker the use of reclaimed materials has grown increasingly more common, but a small few have taken to a more honest and era-sensitive form of restoration. Read on

Into the Wilderness

If you’ve been craving a journey into the outdoors, fortunately festival season is just around the corner. But one festival in particular promises stellar live acts, Michelin-worthy cook outs and an arts and culture programme that’d make Brian Eno blush. Wilderness Festival presents you with one saccharine and all-star line-up this August. Read on

British Craft Pavilion Returns

The British Craft Pavilion returns for another year this 21–24 September. It is in collaboration with and curated by Hole & Corner, the quarterly magazine dedicated to stories of craft, beauty, passion and skill. Taking place at the London Design Fair at Old Truman Brewery, the Pavilion promises to be grander in its second year.  Read on

Have story, will travel

Ask around, the greatest stories travel far and wide, often speaking of character, grit and a journey. So when we happened upon the fine work of legendary boot maker Mr Reginald Murray Williams, we couldn’t help but ponder this near-century-spanning contribution to the craft of boot making. Read on

Properly 'wastED'

Pioneering chef Dan Barber hits London at Selfridges with innovative pop up dining concept “wastED”. His first venture in London, sitting on the roof of Selfridges until 2nd April 2017, will draw from the inspired education of the food waste movement in London. Read on

Once upon Paddington

From code-breaker Alan Turing to thespian Alfred Molina, Paddington has had many notable residents. It is perhaps more commonly known for its striking canals, being the birth place of Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin and of course, Michael Bond’s nomadic bear. But Paddington, home to Norfolk Square, has a lesser known history. Read on

Crafting Culture

One could argue that we’re part of a generation who are forgetting what it means to build something with our hands. Mass consumption and profitability might well have been the two biggest adversaries for craft culture, but a small yet powerful group of individuals are taking a stand. Read on

Villareal lights London

London, it's often said, is a series of villages connected through a cosy proximity. With each village comes a culture and a pulse specific to it, but there’s a unifying thread running through London - the River Thames. More recently some have come to consider its potential as a canvas for artistic expression. Read on
