Last week we celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday. I left work early and we had planned to go for cocktails and seafood.
After having a little snack and coffee at home we headed out to East London for cocktails. The first stop was at one of our favourite places, Apples & Pears. The cocktails there are delicious, the decor super cool and the staff is really nice.
On my second cocktail I was already feeling the effects of the alcohol. Conversation was flowing and we were having a good time.
Not feeling like heading back to the tube to stick to our Soho seafood restaurant plan we decided to stay in East London.
Instead of seafood we went to Hotbox for the first time. The meat was delicious but we ordered way too much food. As we enjoyed our beers and the bbq meats we kept chatting about random things. We stayed there until late just enjoying the conversation before heading back home.
We had a great time. It feels great to just pamper ourselves with some quality time out of the house with good food and drinks.
I am looking forward to celebrating more birthdays!
