Sunseeker Channel Islands are delighted to share this weeks Eat, Drink, Sleep with Urbanologie, the luxury lifestyle private members’ club and community – with detailed destination guides, up-to-the-minute insider news and exclusive access to the most happening openings and events. “The snappy lifestyle guide…to know what’s hip and happening” — The Sunday Times.
EAT: Ormer, 7-11 Don Street, St. Helier, Jersey JE2 4TQ
Acclaimed chef-patron Shaun Rankin gained a Michelin-star at Ormer within four months of opening this beautiful restaurant. This stylish St Helier’s restaurant (named after a seafood delicacy native to the Channel Islands) was designed by one of London’s leading interior designers and makes for the perfect setting to showcase Rankin’s highly innovative cooking, beautifully crafted menus (of modern European dishes) and his exceptional use of seasonal, local produce.
Make sure to visit the overgrown roof garden for cocktails before heading to the restaurant’s dining room. Rankin’s latest opening is at the new members club 12 Hay Hill in London’s Mayfair – where he is overseeing the impressive dining room and bringing over daily a bounty of fresh, seasonal ingredients from the islands before re-opening next year the restaurant at nearby Fleming’s Hotel.

SLEEP: St. Brelades Bay Hotel, La Route de la Baie, St Brelade JE3 8EF, Jersey
Set in five acres of landscaped gardens, St Brelades Bay Hotel is a substantial beachfront property with panoramic views across one of the most beautiful beaches in the Channel Islands. This family owned and run property is slightly old fashioned, but all in a good way – with attentive, friendly service and old-world charm.
Excellent facilities include a fully equipped gym, tennis courts and numerous swimming pools. The ideal location means it’s only a short walk to the Bay’s favorite eateries – the Crab Shack and the Oyster Box.

DRINK: The Blind Pig, 10 Caledonia Place, Weighbridge, St. Helier, JE2 3NG
The Blind Pig is an intimate speakeasy style bar with a 1930’s inspired prohibition-era décor. Hidden away down a back street in historic St Helier you enter the bar (formerly an ancient storeroom) through a secret door where you can savour unique cocktails, many served in metal goblets and miniature plant pots.
This secret watering hole makes for an ideal destination for after dinner nightcaps and you can even store your liquor in your own private lock-up box with it’s own key, keeping it safe until you next drop by.
