Juan is Dead

Juan Is Dead, a world where you can find collectables from the afterlife.

Creator, Leah Reeves, studied Fine Art at Nottingham University and worked for several years in Fashion and Advertising.  After discovering mosaic quite by chance, she fell in love with the medium and uses mosaic to create contemporary one-off pieces of art and illustrations. Her love of  mischief and otherworldliness is influenced by her Spanish ancestry and the Mexican celebration Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead.

The characters from Juan is Dead paint the afterlife as one hell of a party, they enjoy everything from their living life, but without guilt, hangovers, constraints or worry.

"They're wall art, but also sculpture, the light reflects off each hand-cut piece and when you hold one, you know you're in possession of something special."

Yalla Yalla Beirut Street Food

The first Yalla Yalla, in Green’s Court, Soho, was opened in late 2008 by chef Jad Youssef and his partner Aga Ilska. Beirut-born Jad met Aga, who is Polish, while the two worked in a central London Lebanese restaurant – she ran the front-of-house while he was in the kitchen.
Their dream and their passion was to open their own business, and when the tiny Soho site became available they jumped at the opportunity even though it is only 28 seats, the first Yalla Yalla was an instant hit with the local Soho crowd, and the couple soon started looking for a second location.
The opportunity to create a larger restaurant, just north of busy Oxford Street, arose in early 2010, and Yalla Yalla in Winsley Street opened in late 2010. The template for informal Lebanese and other Middle Eastern cuisine has provided Jad and Aga with the eagerness to spread the Yalla Yalla concept even further, and they are actively looking for additional restaurant sites in London.
