    Selfridges are paying more than just lip service to Valentine's Day this year. (Sorry, we simply couldn't resist). They're launching The Lip Bar - a teeny micro bar experience which is part art installation, part Japanese beer bar.

    It's the brainchild of Japanese artist Daido Moriyama who has covered every inch of the bar with one of his photographs showing a close up of lips. Entry to the bar costs a tenner and that also gets you two drinks - a choice

    At Selfridges, they'll have their usual rolls on offer. So that includes Salmon Avo and Spicy Tuna rolls (using a Ponzu marinade, Baby Gem Lettuce, Pickled Daikon & Spicy Mayo). On the
