Trapeze is a cheeky circus themed haunt of colourful booths to munch down some nosh and sup on some of their immensely tasty cocktail creations. Once you've filled your boots upstairs, venture to the basement where you'll find one of Shoreditch's loudest and most raucous clubbing nights. Sweat, drink and dance down here to the best tunes and DJs around.  


Shaka Zulu

42 user reviews 4

Bringing the culture of South Africa to Camden Town, Shaka Zulu is one-of-a-kind, with the entrance down an escalator. Eat the exotically named dishes of Crocodile Cigars, whilst surrounded by life-sized African tribesmen statues before weaving your way through the grand decor and joining the well-dressed crowd on the dancefloor.

Upper House

820 user reviews 4

Drink and dine to your heart's content at the Upper House where contemporary cool is the name of the game and the partying comes spread over three huge floors. Known for it's delicious food and excellent cocktails, this Islington venue is also no stranger to a bit of a blow-out with regular DJ nights and a 4am finish come the weekend.

Haymarket Kitchen

3 user reviews 4

Not many restaurants in London boast stylish interiors, delicious plates and a club to their name. Except of course, Haymarket Kitchen. Located just off Piccadilly Circus, this little gem is connected to the rowdy Tiger Tiger - but when inside, you'd never guess it. Fronting some contemporary European dishes, a varied selection of wines, and a banging post-dinner club set up, it's one of the city's best party restaurants.
