Who are we?
A group of folk who have a passion for this vibrant city and a desire to tell the world about it. Rather than filling up the news feeds of facebook, we thought why not go ahead and set up our own site - a hub of fresh, interesting and helpful content. Here we are!
What will we share?
Hidden gems of the city, style and beauty tips, opinionated features, inspirational interviews and more. These will come in either short and snappy articles/reviews or full length features for the stories that deserve those few more words.

What makes us different?
We are well aware that there are a million and one lifestyle sites out there. We read them, enjoy them and continue to learn from them as we set up our own. What makes us stand out is by inviting established, student and brand new writers to contribute to the site. The more people we get involved, the more diverse and unique the content will be for our readers.
Why the name, 'Ensemble'?
The concept came before the name. We went on a quest to find a word that encompassed the collaborative aspect of our site. During that quest, we must admit that the thesaurus may have (definitely) come into it. When we stumbled upon the word, 'Ensemble', it was the light-bulb moment we were after. (Not to mention that it is beautifully French.)
Can you get involved?
Yes please! Get in touch via our contact page.
the Ensemble ensemble...
Luke is from the south coast but trying desperately to 'be more city'.
He is a big fan of: mooching around this big beautiful city, gin, man bags, rooftop bars, beards, cats and homewares.
He isn't so keen on: chutney, silent tinder matches, the gym, Samsung phones and his commute - especially the people who make it so unpleasant (you know who you are)!
Fave London spot: Crouch End
Rachael is a writer/author who resides in Kings Cross (and should be a rep for the area, she loves it so darn much).
She adores coffee shop hopping, writing, people, comedy and a Sunday arvo in a pub.
She also writes over on the Huffington Post platform.
Fave London spot: The Southbank. Or Camino bar in Kings Cross.
Usually found with her head buried in a book, justifying spending habits ("It was love at first sight ... what do you mean I shouldn't have bought the dress/book/DVD/lipstick/garden gnome?) sampling cake and getting annoyed at cinema talkers.
She's always wanted to own a dog called Dave.
Fave London spot: The Southbank & Somerset House
