This month at beyond we have been mainly…..
Since discovering the work of artist Dane Shue last year, we can’t get enough of the contemporary pop artist. Heavily influenced by Andy Warhol, his colourful masterpieces are well worth checking out at daneshueart.com
One of our favourite dens has long been The Maven in Leeds and if you’re after a cocktail with attitude, it’s the place to head. The award-winning speakeasy bar blends coolness and sophistication and is the perfect hideaway for an intimate drink early doors or a roaring party as the night progresses.
Arguably Ilkley’s best chill-out bar, Friends of Ham have added another impressive string to their bow with the launch of their regular jazz nights. The intimate evenings will take place once a month over the summer and take place on 14th June, 12th July, 9th August and 13th September.

Our favourite London hotel Chateau Denmark have just opened their new bar, Thirteen, along with an underground haunt, dial8. Oozing all the decadence and hedonistic vibe of the Soho hotel, the two new venues capture the spirit of Denmark Street and serve an impressive array of cocktails and a mouth-watering menu of small plates. Well worth a visit if you’re down the Schmoke and fancy living like a rock star for the night.

When it comes to escaping for the weekend, there’s nowhere quite like the stunning Northumberland coastline. With miles and miles of deserted golden beaches and friendly locals, it’s very much on our radar this summer. Beadnell Bay is a firm favourite and if you’re looking for a stopover, then we can’t recommend highly enough The Percy Arms in Chatton. Incredible food, beautiful rooms and just a short drive to the beach make this the ideal base from which to explore the amazing Northumberland coastline and countryside.
Exciting news as acclaimed Yorkshire chef Tommy Banks has just opened his third Yorkshire restaurant. The Abbey Inn Byland, is billed as a relaxed and stylish country pub with rooms and is located just down the road from their Michelin-starred restaurant The Black Swan. Ingredients will be supplied from the family’s farm in Olstead. This is one place we can’t wait to check out this summer.
