Vertigo Lounge

Vertigo Lounge is a firm favourite among locals. Split over three floors, the chilled Hornchurch haunt transforms into a late-night party palace once the sun goes down. And for when you need a break from the dancefloor? There's a swish rooftop terrace, ideal for cooling off.

Unit 7

A favourite among TOWIE stars, Unit 7 has a lot to offer, from the multiple neon-lit dancefloors and cracking drinks deals to its idyllic rooftop terrace. Whether you fancy a tipple alfresco-style or just need a breather from throwing shapes, there's a rattan sofa with your name on it.
