Extended Happy Hour

Core is a lively City nightspot offering good food and a broad range of cocktails. The venue has a 'Brew & Brew' philosophy that ensures both coffee and draft beers lovers are well taken care of. Head down in the evening for an easy-going party vibe and if you're lucky enough you might see Chloe having some cheeky cocktails with her pals.

Shaka Zulu

Prepare to be amazed by 60ft giant statues, meat flavoured cocktails and a giant escalator taking you between floors. A totally unique clubbing experience, Shaka Zulu brings authentic and diverse influences in taste and style from the heart of South Africa to Camden! A favourite amongst the TOWIE cast, Lauren Goodger, Frankie Essex and Lauren Pope have been seen several times partying here.

Along with the Sanctum Soho Hotel Roof Garden, this boutique hotel in Soho is also home to the No.20 restaurant and bar. Serving up delicious traditional British food and a wide range of cocktails, it's enough to rival some of the best London hotel bars. Be warned, you may here the constant echoing of 'Shuuutuuup' and 'Yeah babes 100%' from Gemma and Harry!

Sushi Samba boasts two restaurants, as well as a stunning outdoor dining space, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The perfect place to impress a date!
