OUT THERE Eyes wide open and ears to the ground DRINK UP

FLEABAG FANATICS With the final series of Fleabag long finished (*sad face*), we’re in desperate need of a Phoebe Waller Bridge fix. Enter East London artist Emma Scutt, who has developed a hilarious range of illustrated mugs and totes inspired by said show. Excuse us while we enjoy our afternoon brew with Andrew Scott (aka the priest!)’s oh-so-pretty ‘mug’. Order by emailing emmascuttartist@gmail.com £12, emmascutt.co.uk

MCQUEENS X MILLER HARRIS When two respected brands come together with their years of expertise and creativity, something magical happens – in this case the creation of a range of scented candles. Inspired by the evocative fragrances of McQueens Flowers’ botanical workroom in Bethnal Green, each candle captures a different element – be it the herby foliage, bountiful bouquets or verdant green stems. £65, millerharris.com 8

Candied canapés It’s sweet, it’s fishy… and it’s far tastier than it sounds! Handcrafted in East London using the finest sustainably-farmed fish, Can-D have launched Europe’s first candied smoked salmon. Think caramelised jerky but with a deep (sea) umami finish. Whether you’re looking to take your breakfast up a notch, rescue a dull dinner party or are after a posh, sticky sweet snack, it’s just the thing. Be warned though: it’s incredibly addictive. £10 for 100g pack, can-d.co.uk

HOT OFF THE PRESS With the news forever bringing us down, Hoxton Mini Press are on a mission to help us fall back in love with the UK. Keep your eyes peeled for the October release of Paul Trevor’s Once Upon A Time in Brick Lane – a truly enchanting collection of vintage photos taken over 25 years across the East End. £25, hoxtonminipress.com beastmag.co.uk

We’ve got good news for cocktail connoisseurs – Bethnal Green’s neighbourhood bar Coupette has launched a new series of seasonal cocktail menus, full of weird and wonderful concoctions to delight. After a successful run with their summer menu, now it’s time to welcome in the cosy flavours of autumn. Better still, you can sip your chosen cocktail while enjoying a board of charcuterie. Cheers to that. 423 Bethnal Green Road, E2 0A coupette.co.uk
