Sony World Photography Awards 2017 & Martin Parr
It's easy to get slightly anaesthetised to incredible photography. We've seen your Instagram feed, we know you're as capable of it as anyone else. That said, this annual award show is quite simply the world's largest — and best — photography exhibition: if you go to this, you're going to see some insane imagery that'll have you rubbing those eyes, rubbing those eyes some more and whispering to your pal that you cannot believe this shit. This exhibition is divided into around 10 categories, including Architecture, Conceptual, Contemporary Issues, Daily Life and Landscape and anything else you could reasonably expect. This is the best of the best, from fine art landscape shots to hard-hitting journalism. This year's show also features some unique images, books and film from legendary photographer Martin Parr. Catch it whilst you can — it's not in town for long. The nice guys from WPO have also been in touch to give us a discount: DOJO20 will get you 20% off booking online.
Tickets: £7-11 OTD

Just like it says on the tin, Market Cafe should always be any Broadway Market dweller's first choice of pitstop. Their tempting all-day brunch menu, classic cocktails and hangover comfort grub definitely can't be sniffed at. This down-to-earth place is great for starting off your weekend with some vavavoom for brekkie. We'd recommend going for the cheesy-as-fuck Croque Monsieur - especially when the hangover strikes. As you'd expect, it gets super busy at the weekends, but it's definitely worth hanging around for a table.
Not a sloppy Korma in sight here, and no-one touting for business outside (sorry Brick Lane). Gymkhana is a contender for the best gourmet Indian in London, no question. With its Wild Boar Vindaloo, or Quail Seekh Kebab with Pickled Green Chilli Chutney, the menu has a real focus on premium game - and premium style baby. The whole restaurant has a Raj-era India style, with dark stained wood everywhere and hunting trophies from the Maharaja of Jodhpur, and the kind of calm, poised atmosphere that exudes money... Well you're going to need some to eat here. There are ways around the huge bill though; pop in for lunch between 12-2pm Mon-Sat and you can get away with spending £40 a head on the Chicken Khow Suey menu - which consists of three pretty luxurious courses. Do your homework and you might just be able to afford it kids.
Situated down a little alley just off the Strand is this intimate, eccentric gay bar full of pop art photos, memorabilia and nostalgic tunes from the 80's. Amid a decor of red and gold wallpaper and red leather love seats, pretensions are left at the door as the jukebox spins tunes that will have you losing your cool within seconds. They also do board game evenings and quiz nights.
