Jessica Albarn, The Boy in the Oak

Liberty is a wonderful shopping arcade, and what a fitting location for Jessica Albarn – sister of Blur frontman, Damon – to exhibit her rather magnificently illustrated children’s book, The Boy in the Oak.

Unlike previous events, the launch of Jessica’s work was a refreshingly young affair. Children traipsed the wooden floors and brushed past the oak panels as they played football, tag and the generally mischievous fellow. The ambiance was lovely and the company, playful.

Do take a look; the drawings are superb.

Playtime launch

Located on Islington Green, a few steps from Upper Street, Playtime is a swish cocktail bar offering a fine selection of drinks and an even more impressive selection of interior design and art.

This Thursday, the venue played host to a private gathering of friends, notables and press to celebrate the new artwork exhibited by Robert Gordon McHarg III; Gordon is perhaps best known for his quirky Subway Gallery found in Edgware Road tube station. The bar looks cool, feels trendy and the cocktails, superb.

A Bloc Party DJ set, a hula hooper, and an intervention group of semi-clad, cross-era swimmers entertained the ‘cocktailed’ guests with zest and zeal – all were contented.

And this is how it all appeared to me:

It’s a venue worthy of a visit.
