Fahrelnissa Zeid

If you find yourself in London between now and October, I’d say it’d be worth a trip to the Tate to explore artist Fahrelnissa Zeid and her work. Born into an elite Ottoman family, and then later marrying into the Hashemite royal family of Iraq, she lived quite the life. Best known for her large-scale…

Skateistan

I’ve always enjoyed skateboarding. Never quite grasped it myself, but as an avid snowboarder when i was younger, I had friends in the scene and a big respect for the sport. Still to this day I enjoy watching skate videos and competitions and seeing people push the boundaries of extreme sports. Now probably after one…

Mangal Mondays Highlights

Each Monday in June we let one of our favourite Chefs take over the kitchen at Berber & Q. They came, they cooked, and they smashed it. We had a blast, the food was great and we hope everyone that managed to get a ticket enjoyed it as much as we did. Big thanks to…

Berber & Q – ON TOUR

This year we decided to stop being so lazy and hiding behind our restaurant walls… There’s a whole world out there, and we’d like to take the Berber & Q circus to all corners of it. We’re trekking around the UK this summer for various shindigs, it’d be great to see some of you Berberians…

Madees Khoury

Now, the beer game itself is predominately dominated by men as it is. With craft beer becoming cool in the UK and breweries popping up left right and center in the last 10 years or so, the market is at an all time high. Of course as something grows more and more, people are attracted…

Raving Iran

Just a couple of months ago, in London, we were very lucky to get the chance to catch a (quite rare) screening of this pretty powerful documentary. Big love to Unleash for getting that together. I don’t want to spoil the story for you, but trust that it’s been an arduous journey for the main…
