CODE Hospitality is a thorough piece of work covering all information a tourist, a local and a professional in the industry would need for London cafes, bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, even street food, airlines and other F&B leisure outlets! CODE Hospitality does not only cover London – it features also venues in Brighton, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and York. You can refer to CODE Hospitality for a variety of occasions – you are visiting for the first time and need a safe bet for dinner; you are eager to find a new diamond in the heart of London to take your beloved to; you are in mood for an exquisite and unreplicable meal; you are working in the business or are thinking about it and need a recognized new position, or you are just bored and would like to go through some curious news on the capital’s nightlife!
Now, let me make it more clear what exactly CODE Hospitality contains. There are several sections, the first one is the Bulletin. A new post is published weekly and this way, CODE manages to filter the hottest info about this week – be it a new opening, a unique feature of a venue, an event at a club or somewhere else or even juicy stories told first-hand by a restaurant’s owners! You can subscribe to the bulletin and receive it first thing when published via e-mail or download CODE’s app (for which you have full instructions at the bottom of this page). And for the several years this bulletin has been issued, I’ve had time to be assured that it’s written by a legitimate, crafty and studious staff.
The next section of the website are its ‘Features’. Under it you can find several more subsections with something for everyone – inside information for professionals, tips and guides for travelers, ranks of hospitality venues for new-experience seekers and more.
At least once a month, CODE publishes a somewhat short but purposeful interview with an owner, chef, manager or whatever you can think of. These are interesting for anyone who wants to know more about their favorite spot from the person who made it what it is; for all those seeking to absorb info on what it’s like to open your own place or simply for those who fancy CODE’s style of presenting news.
This one is my favorite (and who can blame me). Every week an experienced reviewer takes the time, and stomach, to go around and hunt down the best tastes offered. I cannot even imagine how many meals are tried, and how many of them are disappointing, before the final rank is finished and appears shining at CODE. But nevertheless, it is aimed to save you the time and disappointment of desperately searching for a breath-taking bite. So if you are a gourmand – CODE’s Best Bites are one of the best references to trust with your next stroll. And even if you are not a lover and you are just preparing a memorable-to-be night for your occasion, you now know where to find updated info on the best restaurant and menu choices!
Specials are made for the connoisseurs – from time to time CODE picks a topic and writes exclusive content. Tips and guidelines from established chefs and owners are not rare; peeks inside a no-show venue, a review of important niches in the industry or stories on the high-quality products of Britain’s hospitality venues like, for example, coffee, wine, pasta and even not that conventional treats.
As specialized as CODE might seem, it is, as I mentioned, the perfect companion to a tourist. CODE has a special section with travel guides which cover not only Britain but other spots as well – it might prove to be the perfect advisor for your next destination choice!
Here is the part that every insider loves! CODE daily updates their website so as to keep up with the latest happenings in the industry. Award ceremonies, nominations, celebrations, competitions – all of these news could be very beneficial for professionals. Knowing how things are ranking up and what opportunities to shine there are, managers, owners and PR teams can update their strategies to be as competitive as possible and if they are still newbies – learn from and follow the best. In many of the events covered by CODE News, not only professionals can take part – fundraisers, parties, shows and festivals are one of the most exciting options for Londoners and tourists, especially when they are related to food!
To keep pace with the latest trends and track all new opening in London and the other CODE cities, you can just refer to the PR Directory. A straight-forward list of all the new places to open with brief descriptions and essential info. Of course, you can use PR Directory not only to keep up with news but also to announce the opening of your own place and make sure that tons of people would discover it from the very start!
Oh, CODE’s calendar is so cute. You can just click on it and see a neat table of all kinds of events, perfectly ordered. A new opening, a show, whatever – you can just click on it and even add it to your own calendar. This is a very clever option for all those interested in such trendy events or who just want to keep track of the Hospitality High Life as they go, but have no time to browse through news themselves – they can just open the calendar, have a minute to look at it and know everything needed.
A brilliant idea, right? CODE Hospitality offers a wide range of positions and the opportunity to apply for them. Filtered and then gathered together, here are all the job offers in the industry you can find in any search engine and are worth it (because we all know how immense the number of shams is).
