Who said you should wait till the sun goes down to get the party started? Coming to a secret Essex location this spring, ticket holders can expect an unforgettable daytime bash complete with bottomless cocktails, mouth-watering food and plenty of on your feet entertainment.

Much like its unpretentious name, Harry's  is a one of the most laid-back bars in Essex. Head down for an afternoon of al fresco fraternising in Harry's chilled-out outdoor area. With a glass of wine in hand, intermingle with an after-work crowd and let loose after a long week. Harry's '25 and over' policy (for those simply here to drink) brings about a noticeably mature and pleasant ambience. 

Reids might be best known for its raucous late night activities come the weekend, this bar in Billericay offers a great atmosphere all through the day. With a solid wine menu made all the better with great cocktails, spirits and an outside space to lounge around in, there's all the reason to spend all day here.
