All Things Holi 2014

Wanna party in the name of love and colour? Yeah you do. Hindus all over the world are celebrating Holi Festival now, and even if you can’t afford the plane ticket to some of the more mega celebrations, you can still get a piece of the party here in London. It’s a time of joyful, exuberant mess that is said to triumph over evil and wipe the slate clean. We’re up for it. Head to Cinnamon Kitchen’s bar Anise where until Saturday you can take over their party pod for 30 minutes of paint-throwing. For the last week city workers have been stripping off their… ties / heels and getting messy in the name of fun, Prada suit still intact under a white overall. If you need a bit of encouragement their Holi-inspired cocktail menu like the Holika Fire and the Neela Heera ought to set you free. Go on and get childish – BarChick did. If you just can’t get enough then head to Hawker House on Sunday for Dishoom’s Holi party. It’s the ultimate place to go wild; smear each other’s faces with paint, chase each other around, dance and laugh until it hurts. You will get messy so best leave the leather get up at home. Think it sounds a little crazy? It is and we are all for it, check out the video from last year. Just be sure to dress accordingly. Oh and if you're lucky you might be able to hang out with this girl:
