If the August Bank Holiday is a hot one, then why not cool off in a club with a pool in it. Carwash in Shoreditch takes place on a Saturday evening from 10pm. Join the party in this cool East end club, moving to rocking DJ beats like no one is watching. Drinks flow as the party bounces until the early hours. If that's not enough then the Jacuzzi and pool are sure to be.
