By day, Aeronaut is abuzz with sunseekers sipping on craft brews in its circus-style beer garden. By night, the Acton party bar transforms into a theatrical arena; disco balls descend, the spotlights beam down and the stage comes out for the aerial acrobats and glamorous gymnasts. 

Hackney Funhouse is giving you the chance to live out your mad chemist dreams, but with a boozy twist. ABQ is a fully-immersive cocktail experience that will have you shaking, mixing and cooking up some seriously stunning molecular libations.

Named after the now mostly forgotten drink, The Gibson uses the highest-quality spirits paired with masterful mixology knowledge to compose a list of fantastical cocktails. The icing on the cake of this Clerkenwell bar? Stunning decor that sets the mood for an intimate evening.

You've gotta work for your drinks at this WW2 immersive experience. The Bletchley is inspired by Alan Turing's incredible code breaking, and will put the old noggin to the test with clues to crack and riddles to answer - it will be worth it once you've sipped on one of their concoctions.

When it comes to a unique night out in London, we highly doubt you've tried anything quite like Flight Club. Not only the perfect place to catch up on pizza, cocktails and brunch should the weekend take you, book an oche and get down to some serious darts action alongside drinks.
