If you ever feel overwhelmed with the amount of choice on offer each weekend, then Tempus has got the round-up for you.

And of course, if you're finding time to settle in with a good book then we've got the perfect one for our business-minded readers. Read on for the very best of this weekend in London's luxury... >>

Last Chance: The Real Thing

Lewis star Laurence Fox treads the board in the Rose Theatre Kingston's visceral production of Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing. Described by The Stage as "a sparkling revival", this play about life and love imitating art has received a slew of five-star reviews. With final performances on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 October, there are a scant few tickets left for the lucky theatregoer.

Evening drinks: London's first guacamole and tequila bar

London's first dedicated guacamole and tequila bar launched in Covent Garden's Cantina Laredo this week, and we're excited to see the weekend rush after Lottie Moss, Winnie Harlow, Donna Air, Jo Wood appeared among the star-studded guests at the bar's launch on 11 October. The venue's “Guacamaestro” will be serving up ‘The Great Eight Guacamoles’ while the tequila range of 100% blue agave tequilas and Mezcals will delight those signing up to the Mexican 'sip don't slam' approach.

Cinema culture: BFI London Film Festival 

If you're an old hat at attending London's biggest annual film festival, you'll already know that next year's classics are already here, nestled among the art films, independent gems and would-be blockbusters featured in this cinematic institution. We're excited about many of the films showing across the weekend, but if you're wondering where to start, don't miss Downsizing – starring Tempus' recent feature-star Matt Damon – a sweeping social satire about a man who realises life would be better if was a fraction of his size. Other standout films include Battle of the Sexes, a sports biopic of the match between tennis legends Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell), and Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool, a December-May romance starring Jamie Bell and Annette Benning.

Fine dining: The May Fair Kitchen

This bright and tasty mediterranean restaurant on Stratton Street delivers the very best of tapas dining for the discerning pallette. Enjoy Spanish classics like chorizo, prawns and croquettes or mix it up with Italian pasta dishes and fresh salads. The choice of fare is perfect for lunch or dinner, while the light decor and wide windows gives a bright ambience even when the October weather is turning the London skies to grey. Dining in the evening? The kitchen is adjacent to the gorgeous May Fair Bar with its sumptuous cocktails.
