Sweat out the stress with an invigorating class at Psycle

We all like to decompress in different ways when the working day is done, but no one can argue with the magical power of endorphins! And at Psycle, you can tailor your workout to suit your mood on any given day. With classes in spinning, barre, strength, yoga and mindfulness, the world really is your oyster. You can even specify your ideal time length, intensity and how you’d like to feel at the end. Want to feel fierce? They’ve got you. Looking for some empowerment? You’ve come to the right place. Browse the full range of classes here. 76 Mortimer St, W1W 7SA

Enjoy an aperitivo at Bar Termini

This Soho gem is a fantastic place to facilitate that lovely transition into the next stage of your evening. Decked out with dark wood and marble, Bar Termini positively oozes old Italian charm with a hint of glamour. Their speciality is a negroni (coming in at a reasonable £8) but there’s plenty of other delightful cocktails to explore. And it wouldn’t be a true Italian establishment without the offer of some delicious antipasti to accompany your tipple. The decidedly small (but stylish) menu offers burrata, caponata, charcuterie and the like. Just the thing to whet your appetite before the main event! 7 Old Compton St, W1D 5JE

Hop from Italy to the US and dine at Sophie’s Steakhouse

Continuing with the theme of understated glamour, Sophie’s Steakhouse provides the perfect setting for an effortlessly elegant evening meal. With high ceilings, exposed brick walls and an opulent chandelier centrepiece, the decor alone is a thing of beauty. But what people really come for is their succulent dry-aged steaks, spectacular seafood and mean martinis. And with this SWR reward, you can enjoy 20% off the main menu on Sunday to Friday from 12-7pm. Need we say more? 42-44 Great Windmill St, W1D 7NB

Wes and Sandy’s pick of the week

South Western Railway’s winged friends, Sandy and Wes are always on hand to provide their top London recommendations. Sandy is a culture vulture with a love for the arts, theatre and lunching with the girls, while Wes loves clubs, pubs and going to gigs with his mates. But one thing they can both agree on is their love of spending a night in front of the box. But you don’t necessarily have to be confined to your sofa to enjoy a bit of top-tier watching. Instead, why not catch a film at Regent Street’s independent cinema. Open as a theatre since 1848 and undergoing conversion to a permanent cinema in the 1920’s, the cinema is one of only few in the UK to screen 35mm and 4k digital films. So you can enjoy the very best current independent and studio releases, while immersed in rich historical surroundings. Find out what’s on here. 307 Regent St., W1B 2HW
