Sure the mercury might be dropping outside and the trees are nuding up (well, the deciduous ones at least) but pick up that chin – the Autumn issue of everyone’s fave CHCH lifestyle bible (that would be Cityscape) is bringing a whole new level of heat this fall. We’re rocking iconic pop princess Cyndi Lauper on the cover who is touring with that other bad ass powerhouse Debbie Harry (and Blondie) and together will be rocking the city right in April. As when things get cold we tend to think of holing up in cool cafes sipping freshly roasted coffee and while grazing on the season’s finest which is why we’ve compiled our epic, 10-page Café Society feature on what’s up with what’s going down on the city’s café scene. We also hit up our friends at Armstrong Prestige and took a road trip down to Queenstown in the all-new Mercedes GLA 250 to road test trending new restaurant The Grille by Eichardt’s.
Elsewhere in the issue we catch up with rising local pop star and New Zealand music’s next big thing Nakita, tap awesome recipes from King of Snake (hello Manuka Honey Mousse!) and Boo Radley’s Food & Liquor’s signature cocktail the bourbon-based bodaciousness of The Boo Radley, and discover hot new bar eatery Rogues of Rotherham: their detox/retox cocktails and eye-popping dessert ‘Terror-Misu’. The boys from Canopy Landscape Architects share the inside word on hot new design trend New Perennial Planting, we find out how to get back on track when you’ve fallen off the fitness wagon and it wouldn’t be Cityscape without our signature round up of all things awesome and trending in fashion, food, drink, home wares alongside the hottest gigs and events to catch. Look out for the Autumn issue or hit it up online here. And don’t forget to download the free Cityscape App at the Google Play or iTunes App Stores, for when you’re out on the roam.
