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.
There's never a dull moment at Three Wise Monkeys Colchester. The buzzing late-night bar plays host to a range of live musicians throughout the week, from Duran Duran tribute acts to Essex's hottest new talents.
One of the top bars in Essex, thanks to its Irish hospitality and charm, O'Neill's Brentwood is where to head to whether you fancy streaming sport or dancing the night away. Better yet, they're also serving the best poured pints of Guinness in the biz.
While Walkabout Colchester is certainly renowned for its epic sports screenings, with multiple HD screens, tasty food and thirst-quenching tipples, it also knows how to throw one helluva party. Swing by the venue for a cracking night out in the centre of the city.
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.
One of the hottest bars in Essex, Faces is an unmissable boozy brunch destination. A bar, restaurant and club space rolled up into one, the recently-renovated venue will cater to all your drinking and dining needs with a soundtrack of live DJs to get you grooving afterwards.
