Some Christmas trees in the Netherlands will end up in beer! From 2 January, the botanical brewer has collected unwanted Christmas trees from Dutch consumers, bars and restaurants to transform them into bottles of its 2019 Winter IPA. Chief Botanical Officer Frederik Kampman: “Every December, about 2.5 million real trees bring Christmas spirit into our homes. By New Year, most of these end up in the chipper, on bonfires or piled at the roadside. We have found another use for them: in beer.” read more

Launched in October in West Hampstead (North West London), Heads + Tails is a new late-night cocktail bar from Will Partridge and Chris Dennis. As its name suggests, Heads + Tails is a bar of contrasts, both in its beautiful design and its creative output. Heads, a bright airy bar is cleverly juxtaposed with Tails, a dark, atmospheric basement bar. A top notch cocktail bar, with two floors and individual, distinctive menus, HEADS with a cocktail menu that mimics the styling of the bar featuring primarily light and refreshing vodka and gin based twists on classics and contemporary libations. TAILS will be serving short, bold-style offerings based mainly on bourbon, rum and Scotch. While both bars have their own individual and distinctive menus, all drinks will be available to order throughout the venue. Like the two sides of a coin, some drinks exist in unison.

We are in the dark days before Christmas, with real Dutch weather. A little bit of once or twice and mostly wind and rain. Time to create a ‘Christmassy’ restaurant! In September we always give an overview of what we have spotted in the previous Christmas period for inspiration. Below our colleague Max van Oeveren has made a list of small examples up to the great Christmas tree at Claridge’s Hotel in London and special Christmas decorations, as inspiration for hotels, restaurants, bars and of course for at home.

This is the last article on Horecatrends for this year. We wish you a warm, cozy holiday season and lots of inspiration and happiness in 2019. For those who have to work in the hospitality industry, we wish you many nice guests!

Coal Drops Yard (CDY) is an industrial chic shopping quarter just behind King’s Cross. It opened last October, so if you’re visiting London this holiday season, stop by this interesting area where you can enjoy art, commerce, culture and architecture. Much of the Victorian industrial architecture in this area has survived. Today, reimagined, all shops and eateries offer an experience, no mass supply and lots of interaction through workshops, blurring and concept stores. It’s located right behind King’s Cross where you arrive if you travel by train from the mainland of Europe. We visited the area in the beginning of November, on a typical London day, with grey clouds and some rain but we can highly recommend the area! Just walk or bike around the wall, which resembles the Highline trail in New York a bit, enjoy the space, check out the boutiques. We visited it just before boarding the train and had a great lunch at one of the eateries, Barrafina. We can highly recommend their delicious Presa Ibérica 5J, Ajo Blanco. read more

A cozy 35-seat authentic Italian hub called Spaghetti Incident opened its doors in the Lower East Side on May 26, 2015. Their name, borrowed from the Guns N’ Roses 1993 album, reflects their curious concept: to only serve long pasta that can be enjoyed not only in a dish, but also in a cone, to-go. They got the idea to serve spaghetti in a cone from the past back in the 1950’s it was served in a cone as kind of streetfood avant la lettre! We’re wondering whether it would work, walking around and eating spaghetti from a cone. Although we can imagine that the cone makes it easier to twirl the spaghetti around your fork and if you bring the cone to your mouth, it might even work!   read more
